UWP: MARCO BEBI







































MARCO BEBI

My name is Marco Bebi.  I was born in 1964, and I love diving since the first time I dared to put a foot in the water.



 When I am 22,  I get my first Scuba Diving License, then I begin to take underwater photographs. It’s the year 1993.



I’m starting with the famous Nikonos III, soon after replaced by a V model, and then by a camera dry box for Nikon F90.



On 2009, I choose to turn to digital cameras. First I buy a D300, and now I have a D800 with its own camera dry box, of course.

I love chasing sharks all over the world, as well as taking pictures of the amazing microscopic universe.

Lately, I got huge satisfaction when I had some of my pieces and photographs published on the well known eminent magazine “SUB”.

I really hope my portfolio will match up with this incredible set of underwater pictures.
