My name is Álvaro Herrero and I was born in Spain. For as long as I can
remember, I´ve always had a fascination with nature in all of its forms. I was
barely five years old when my grandfather gave me a pair of fins, a mask and a
snorkel and since then, I have not separated from the sea.
I started experimenting with photography when I was eight years old using my
father´s old camera. When I was thirteen, my father gave me my first SLR
camera, a Nikon F70. From that moment, photography has not stopped being
I have been diving for more than fourteen years. I have worked as a diving
instructor, commercial diver, a boat skipper, and trained as a technical
CCRebreather (advanced trimix) and full cave CCR diver.
I have worked as an underwater photographer in Thailand, Philippines and
Indonesia in dive centres, resorts and liveaboards.
I have published photos in various journals including those of a scientific nature
and I have collaborated with government environmental organizations. I have
also been fortunate enough to have been recognized in the prestigious GDT
European Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition 2017 and 2018
Recently I took my deepest picture at 110m.
I consider myself a meticulous person whilst doing my job, always looking for
the perfect photograph.
You can see my passion and work in my portfolio.
