Rafal Makiela a professional underwater photographer, involved in advertising, fashion and artistic wedding photography. He is from Wroclaw in Poland. His photography journey began eight years ago, sparked by the birth of his daughter Maksymilianna. The desire to capture and immortalise every day of her life led to his interest in photography, and it became his passion. Slowly, Rafal learned, following in the footsteps of the best photographers, and practicing constantly. One day, he came across photographs by Zena Holloway, and decided that he wanted to accomplish the spectacular with his pictures, like she does. This is a set of photos he recently took.
To divers out there, we say, capture your bridal portraits underwater. It’s way more achievable then getting all your guests underwater for your wedding ceremony. These are a few more inspirational underwater photographers – Zena Holloway, Elena Kalis and Alix Malka. For those of you who are curious about the behind-the-scenes process.
