UWP: DAVID CARBO'

































David Carbó, born in Cassà de la Selva (Girona), 15 km from the Mediterranean Sea. Photography enthusiast of all his  life,  but it’s when he starts diving that his dedication to both underwater and land photography increases.
Businessman in the metal sector by profession and diving instructor and amateur underwater photographer. His wife  Gemma Aymerich has a diving center (Oceansub-Estartit) and he has many opportunities to practice underwater photography and share his hobby together, David as a photographer and Gemma as an underwater model.
The first steps in underwater photography were with a compact camera, to move to his first reflex in 2010 and currently to a Canon EOS 5D Mk IV with an Isotta housing.
The lenses used for underwater photography are usually: Canon 8-15L fisheye for ambient photos ( Wide Angle ) and Canon 100L macro for fish photos and macros.
Most of his photos are taken in the Natural Reserve of "Les Illes Medes" and a smaller part in different trips around the world.

UWP: XAVIER SAFONT MOIX
























 

 




Xavier Safont Moix

I started diving at 15 years old and at 18 (1975) I had a Nikonos III with which to take my first photographs, it was a little more difficult to take photographs than today. Cameras and years were happening, Nikonos IV, Nikonos V, Nikon F80, Nikon F90, Nikon D70 etc. until today Nikon D500.

Always with my wife Mª Alba Camprubi we have traveled to various countries in the world in search of capturing the underwater world in images so that we can teach it to all the people interested in knowing the blue universe.

We are both diving instructors and some 2,000 students have trusted us to teach them underwater wonders.

We participate in countless underwater photography competitions, obtaining countless awards at national and international level, including several Spanish championships in freediving and tank, World Cups, World Cups, Antibes, Hans Hass etc ...

We are collaborators with various underwater magazines although currently mainly only with Divers and Let s Dive Mag. Our photos have been published in the Catalan Encyclopedia, Mondo Sommerso magazine, Barcelona Aquarium, etc...
