My name is Jordi Chias, I was born in Barcelona in 1973, and my greatest passion is the sea. Since 1998 I work as a freelance photographer specializing in water subjects, especially under the sea. My specialty is marine wildlife although I have also photographed some of the most extreme adventure sports: free-diving, cave diving and deep wreck diving. Recently I have also explored the field of filming that has opened up a new field of possibilities. My work has been published in many different media (books, magazines, websites, etc) and some of my pictures have been recognized with prominent mentions in various competitions, among them the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year (2006, 2008, 2010 , 2012, 2013, 2014), the most important nature photography competition nowadays.
