Photographer of the Week Jerry Arriaga brilliantly captures the underwater landscape and the fascinating life that resides there with this gorgeous collection of images. Each photograph mesmerizes the psyche—whether through the use of creative lighting, engaging eye contact, or a distinctive perspective—and leaves viewers yearning to get underwater.
For the last 17 years, Jerry has had the privilege of working on liveaboards around the world and currently works for a dive travel company in Indonesia. Many years ago, in his home country of Mexico, Jerry began his journey into underwater photography with a Sea & Sea Motor Marine II in hand. Now based in Bali, he has spent the past decade immersed in Indonesian diving. With his wife and fellow underwater photographer, Debbie, the two have traveled around the globe taking their cameras with them wherever they go—continuing to hone their craft together.
