Carlos Villoch fell in love with the ocean since he first wore a diving mask in the 70’s. A former computer engineer, he quitted his office job in rainy England and move to the warm tropics. In the 90’s he worked as dive instructor, camera man and photographer in the Caymans, Australia and Papua New Guinea.

His photos have illustrated 70 front covers and are published in magazines around the world, used for advertising and displayed in aquariums and museum exhibitions. He is an award winner in the BBC-Shell Wildlife Photographer of the Year. With his pictorial and written stories Carlos spreads an environmental message increasing awareness of marine issues.
