My name is Wilfredo Hernandez, but I’m known as Wilfred. I was born in Güines, a small town south of Havana, Cuba. I work as a nurse for a laboratory in southwest Miami. I love everything that has to do with the sea. I was certified as an Open Water Diver in 2008. Since then, I started diving as frequently as possible. At one point I decided to buy a point and shoot camera (Intova IC 800 ) to record some of the memories of my dives. From that day on I become fascinated by underwater photography and started diving specifically for that purpose. As I got better at this hobby, I decided to upgrade my camera to a Canon S90 in an Ikelite housing and two Inon D2000 strobes.

As I continued to practice, my photography improved in many ways. Eventually I came across SFUPS in 2010 and that same year I became a member. It has been a rewarding experience.

I’ve just received my Advanced Open Water certificate, so I will be able to extend my range and enjoy even more my adventures under the sea. You may contact me at wilfred_vist@yahoo.com or see my photos at www.wilfredhdez.com
