"We met Jose about a year ago, when Shark Shield first opened its doors in the US. Jose was very welcoming and went out of his way to accommodate our very specific needs along with organizing essential equipment, such as boats and models. Jose made the whole project seem effortless, however, I'm sure there was complexity which he shielded from us. His photography is clean, crisp and his staging of each shot was carefully executed by Jose to show the ease of use of using Shark Shield. Jose's work has already been used on our new website, in full-page magazine ads, product brochures, product packaging and social media. Most recently Shark Shield had an urgent video production that Jose also took on board. He worked tirelessly late into the night to ensure it met his and our high standards. We love his work and his passion for capturing action in still life. Thanks, mate!"
"I contracted Jose to do a photo shoot for my brand of apparel. I was amazed by his professionalism in handling everything from the booking of the models, the story board, and the shoot locations. I gave him an idea of what I was looking for and let him go. The images I received in return were exactly as I'd hoped. The models and the story board matched my brand perfectly. As a business owner, it's nice to have things go exactly as I'd hope, without me being there every second to watch over someone's shoulder. I have since hired Jose to do another shoot as well as a video shoot/production for my brand."
"Knowing Jose Debasa for a few years now I have truly seen a guy who knows how to pursue his dreams and make them reality. This becomes evident in his work, with passion comes success. We have collaborated in a few shoots showcasing some of our Nautilus equipment from fins to wetsuits and the quality in the frame is noted as can be seen in the gallery. Now he has an extensive list of experience with models, bands, gators, sharks, snakes, etc. To see him from start to prime is very cool, and the best is yet to come. Keep it up Jose and dive safe!"
"I met Jose Debasa by accident at a Printing shop. I approached Jose when he was talking about free diving and photography with the store owner. A strong relationship grew since that day, and that relationship happened for a reason. Jose has become a vital part of our company’s marketing. First of all, he has a very strong passion for underwater photography. When Jose holds the camera in his hand and starts working with his subject, he’ll start seeing things that a normal human being cannot see, angles, light, shadow, everything related to a good result in a photo and that is the perfect ingredient to have a professional result in this field. Second: his professionalism, he wants a perfect shot, always looking for perfection, looking for the perfect scene, and always striving for a perfect finished product, which makes him different than the rest. As customer when you receive a work done from Jose there is not errors, he took the time already to see it all and correct them if any... Third: He is always in a good mood and that makes the work easy at least that's how we (Deep Apnea) feels when working in projects where his is the Director of the production. What else can I say of a person who love what he is doing and on top of that the results are AMAZING!"
"Jose was a dream to work with throughout the modeling portfolio development process. From the initial conversation he provided incredible feedback and input on every photography questions I had, I knew I could count on him. During our photo sessions, Jose was incredibly professional and instructional. His work is beyond superb he teaches you and guides you to feel at ease under water and how to look angelic and pacific in your own skin. He made sure throughout the whole shoot that I felt comfortable and hydrated. His pictures are breathtaking and I am obsessed with his art of under water photography. I can't express how grateful I am for his work, attention to detail, and readiness. Overall I give him 5 out of 5 stars, I work in the film industry and I can't tell you how many people absolutely compliment me on my underwater portfolio. Thanks to Jose's work I have been able to book other jobs in film for his talented photos! My suggestion for those too scared to go out there and try something new and exciting such as under water photography, try it with Jose you will never regret a single moment!"

"Jose is a very easy person to work with. He arrived on time and worked his magic. I couldn't wait to see my pictures. They were ready for us in a short time and once we saw them they truly blow us away. They were more than perfect. Our wedding was captured in photos that we will forever cherish. You could feel the love in the photos and that's what we wanted. When someone loves what they do its not a job, it's their passion. And he didn't work that day, he did what he loved and it was amazing. Highly recommend him for any occasion needed for photography!"
