Urban Salmon Project


“Outdoor storyteller”, that’s how Fernando could best be described. Drawing from his diving certification, Biology studies, and master’s degree in Photography, he specializes in the documentation of freshwater environments.
Fernando has strong experience in the field, having worked on projects in a wide variety of areas, including the untouched Amazon forest, the unique Brazilian savannah, the tropical rainforest of Brazil and the Atlantic Ocean. Urban Salmon is Fernando’s first project in North America.

“ When I’m underwater, I'm the only chance in connecting the world with this underwater reality, and that through the experiences I come back with ”.


Fernando Lessa (Brazilian, 34)  is an outdoor photographer and Storyteller based in Vancouver, British Columbia.
