Generally speaking, underwater photography falls into several well-defined categories. Wide-angle reef scenics with or without divers, over-under images, fish portraits, macro and super macro.

While skilled in all of the standard approaches to underwater imaging, Rico has chosen to focus on the essential, elemental spirit of water and its boundless faces.
