Featured Photographer | Espe Kanela

Featured 1



Espe Kanela is an English teacher in the Canary Islands. As soon she finishes school for the day, she's straight in the ocean. Espe started diving 15 years ago after the 2004 tsunami caught her in Sri Lanka and  opened her eyes to the world of diving.

Years later she started to model for photographers in the Canaries and two years ago she decided to buy a Canon Powershot G7X MKII, Nauticam housing, two Inon strobes, a Weefine wide-angle lens and a Saga macro lens. Despite being a compact camera, it took a while to be comfortable carrying it attached to a stabiliser underwater. 

Espe loves wide-angle photography, and finds herself hypnotized by the morays she finds by the dozen in the south of Tenerife. Groupers and elegant bullrays are also among some of her favourites.
