Mango Street First Adventures with Outex Underwater Photography. Daniel and Rachel of YouTube's Mango Street channel discovered Outex this year and had their first underwater portrait photography experience at the beginning of 2018. Great fun meeting them and collaborating on this first video. Looking forward to doing more together in multiple environmental conditions. California is the perfect setting for adventures in water, rain, mud, dirt, sand, beach, or deserts and we expect new experiences as the summer approaches.
