Photographer of the Week – Juan Quinteros

This week’s featured underwater photographer is wide-angle shark shooter Juan Quinteros. Juan was born in Argentina before moving to Brazil in 2002, and his relationship with the water comes from the early days of his childhood where he would practice swimming and holding his breath underwater at every opportunity.

Years later, he is now a scuba diving instructor, underwater photographer and shark advocate who has completed more than 3,000 dives at some of the best dive destinations on the planet. His photographs and articles have been published in several scuba diving magazines, and he has participated as a filmmaker in a number of television shows and wildlife documentaries.

Currently, Juan is traveling and diving whenever he can in order to improve his photography skills and continue to document the beauty and the secrets of the underwater world. As you can see, he loves sharks and other large marine animals, and this passion is very well reflected in his work. His portfolio features some of the most iconic shark species alongside dolphins, mantas and marine iguanas—subjects that every underwater photographer hopes to encounter one day. More than anything, he loves to educate his friends and followers about conservation issues, and hopes to inspire them to respect and preserve this incredible world for future generations.
