UWP: PATRICK GARCIA

































Patrick Garcia
I love the sea and in particular the Mediterranean Sea.
I live in Toulouse, South West of the France.
I started diving in 1992. Professional and family life did not allow me to continue.
Photography has always fascinated me. I've naturally been attracted underwater photography when my children have started scuba diving on 2005.
My first experiences on a Sony P120 gave me the virus.  The underwater photo sites are a source of inspiration. From amateurs to professionals, I enjoyed their desire to share their knowledge.
For fun, I participated of contests that allowed me to learn many things. I  developed my creativity by looking at the photos of others.
Three years ago, I invested in a new equipment (canon G11+Recsea Housing) to go a little further.
I love the macro because one has the impression of being a privileged spectator of a moment of life. Capture this moment provides an unforgettable sensations. 
Most of my photos are realized during snorkelling. Apnea allows a real feeling of freedom and symbiosis with environment.

UWP: ANUP J KAT


















Anup J kat is a Film maker / Photographer by profession. The scuba bug bit him around 2 years back and he has never looked back since. The relationship which he holds with the creatures beneath is something different. This is quite evident in the photographs he has shot. He uses a Canon Mark 5d ii and a Ikelite housing + strobes. His favorite under water lens would be the Canon 17-40 mm L f 4. The wide angle lens captures the mood of the subject as well as the ambience. He is slowly moving into the field of fashion photography as well. He feels that there is freedom when he travels beneath the surface. He derives a sense of high from this freedom. 

One important thing to note is that he loves sambar (Indian curry) and his mom's food.

In 2003, I came across my wife for diving.Immediately, I was infected by this virus and also began simultaneously with the underwater photography.
Through a variety of compact and SLR cameras and with ongoing experience, I ended uplast in full size segment.
The underwater world with your big and small, and residents living thing has me
completely under her spell.
My favorite species are under water are sharks.
Since 2010 i also work for the NGO Sharkproject (www.sharkproject.org). So I can
combine the pleasant with the useful .
In the meantime Herbert works during his journeys as an underwater and wildlife
photographer and publishes a lot of articles, stories and pictures.
You can find his work basically in german speaking magazines but pictures are sold in well
known stock agencies all over the world.
To my professional, diving is combined with the UW photography the ideal balance.
Equipment: Canon D5 MK II Seacam-Housing, 2 Seacome D150 strobes.
