© Awarded by the popular jury, Alberto Álvarez Marcos is the winner of May’s best photo.

Alberto Álvarez Marcos has been awarded by the popular jury as the winner of May’s best photo in this 3rd Online Open Fotosub “El Hierro, un Puerto de Vida”. The winning photo is a stunning image of a canarian lobster (Scyllarides latus) posing in front of the camera. This photo was shot during the dives Albert did in May with Centro de Buceo La Restinga, one of the official collaborators in the Online Open Fotosub.

Alberto Alvarez Marcos is passionate about the sea, nature and underwater photography. Resident in Gran Canaria he began shooting underwater photos around 2011 with an Olympus XZ-1 and an external flash, soon after he slowly built up his uw photography gear with macro and wide angle lenses, focusing lights, a second flash…etc. He has always used compact cameras that allow him to shoot super macro and wide angle photos on the same dive, they are smaller and more versatile, and in his understanding, more fun.

He loves what he does and feels very fortunate to be able to leave a visual legacy of all the beautiful things under the ocean, so that people get to know the sea a bit better, for it to get respected and looked after, by slowly capturing more marine species and completing his portfolio.

His artistic side never stops evolving, looking for new things to photograph in a different way, looking for visually impacting and attractive images, but without forgetting his inicial references which are the foundations of his style.
