Random Winning Photographer
Carlos Villoch
Carlos fell in love with the ocean since he first wore a diving mask in the 70’s. His mum still remembers him going to sleep wearing his fins and mask. 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 work as photographer has taken him to the most remote and exciting dive destinations in every continent, from Antarctica to Micronesia. 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 and his images are often placed in the first positions in photo contests and shoot-outs. With his pictorial and written stories Carlos spreads an environmental message increasing awareness of marine issues. At present he runs the MagicSea.com photo library and shares his passion for the ocean through his underwater photography seminars and trips.
