Hi! My name is David!

Growing up in Barcelona by the shores of the Mediterranean gifted me with an eternal love for the sea and all its creatures. For as long as I can remember, I have spent more time underwater than on the surface. I practiced as a veterinarian in Spain, but it was a move to Baja California Sur, Mexico where I had the opportunity to follow my dream of working towards ocean conservation and capture its importance with my camera. My pathway of underwater photography and videography was embedded within me here.
My primary intention with photography is to promote messages of marine conservation to help protect the oceans that give life to us all. Through my images, I hope to show unique and important aspects of the underwater world that contribute to a better understanding of the ocean, its role on this planet and the sustainability of all life. 
I have been honoured to be a Backscatter Video Photo Pro at Nautilus Liveaboards working in the Revillagigedo Archipelago (Socorro Islands), Guadalupe and the Sea of Cortez, three of the most incredible places I have ever seen in my life.

"The moment you enter, everything disappears. Your problems, your worries, your joys, your anxieties and your impatience, everything disappears. You get into a dimension where gravity seems to outwit normality, you are able to fly without wings among unimaginable and majestic creatures, and it is that precise moment when you realize how small we are on this planet that we curiously call Earth... when in reality it is water in almost its entirety. The Ocean, my camera, and I. My retina is my eternal reel and my camera my ally to show the reason why we should take care of each and every one of the animals and living beings that inhabit it. Each dive is a question and at the same time an exclamation in which there are moments that remain in the memory for the rest of a lifetime.

That's the reason why I love photography, the opportunity to freeze that ephemeral moment that only you have seen, from that perspective and that angle, with that movement, that light, those colors and that invisible force and energy, that few see, under a thick column of water.
I wish I was a fish so I would never have to take my head to the surface. But then I could not document and immortalize the wonders that the great blue gives us.

Dressed with the prettiest color, the almost infinite Ocean is my favorite model.

Let's take care of it, and he'll thank us."
