UWP: MAWI MUGEN


























Masmawi Rahim ( Mawi )


I was born & raised in a small country in Asia, Singapore on January 14th, 1975. Fell in love with the sea since a teenager. Active in seasports activities, I decided to take up Scubadiving  on 2006 to further explore the wonders of the oceans beneath. After couple of dives, I come to a conclusion that, I really had to capture the moments of the beautiful landscape underwater. So with that, I started with my first compact underwater camera that is an Olympus U 710. It is then that I started to realize and develop the passion to go further on underwater photography. Being new in the underwater photography scene, I  didn't have much knowledge, equipment & tools at that time. It is about a year ago that I decided to pursue and upgrade to a decent  underwater photography equipment . It is a passion & hobby for me now, capturing underwater photographs and share it to everyone.
