Carlos Rodríguez was born in Venezuela and recently moved to Costa Rica. In 1998 he began his life as a diver, becoming certified as Advance Open Water Diver and making this activity one of the great passions of his life. To date he has more than 1000 dives made in different parts of the world: Bahamas, Turks & Caicos, Cozumel, Isla Mujeres, Florida Keys, Tobago, Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, Venezuela, Galapagos Islands, Hawaii, Roatan, Costa Rica and Cayman Islands are some of the places he has visited to explore its underwater.
His evolution from diver to photographer was initiated by the need to capture the wonders of the underwater world, but he did not settle solely with the image, but began to complete those records with research, in an autodidactic process in which he harmoniously combines science, art and passion. It takes advantage of the astonishment that the image produces to educate and to foment the respect for the immense diversity that exists under the water.
