Born in Barcelona in 1977, photographer Rafael Cosme lives in Sabadell (Barcelona) and shoots throughout the Mediterranean coast. He began to take interest in underwater photography in 2006, uniting two of his greatest passions, diving and photography.
Rafael's passion for diving began at age 21, and since then he has immersed himself in the marine world.
In 2006, he invested in his first camera and underwater housing, beginning by taking pictures for friends and himself.
Over time he decided to take part in the Championships of Underwater Photography that took place along the Mediterranean coast, with good results. In the years 2011 and 2012 he was awarded the runner-up, and is named captain of the Catalan team in the Championships of Underwater Photography Spain.
"You can do great things with a compact camera", says Rafael.
He puts part of his success down to the unconditional support by his wife Petra, who share the same passion for diving and has helped in his underwater photographic journey.
In 2012 a company directed by Jose Sanchez, SAGADIVE provided support for all his equipment through Fotosub.
