UWP: ADRIANO LANZAFAME

 




























My name is Adriano Lanzafame, I was born in 1991 and i live in Catania, Italy 
Since I was a boy, I was attracted to the sea, I started with only a mask and fin for years, then in 2016 I entered in the scuba diving world with my first course.
My first camera was a gopro, but in 2018 I bought my first professional equipment,an easydive housing for a Canon 7d Reflex.
My intent was to share the beauty of the sea with my parents and friends, and other people as well.
In the next years i took a Canon 6d mkii with Giosim housing and then Canon 5dmkIV with nauticam housing wich is my actual camera.
It’s difficult to be an underwater photographer, but not impossible, you have to be VERY patience and it takes a lot of time to learn uw photo techniques and post-production.
I am so finicky, and this probably is half a defect because I am almost never satisfied of my pictures , and half a merit because this pushes me always over my limits.
In 2019 started taking part in different international contests, winning my first award in 2020 at “MyShot 2020” and then in “Abyss 2021”.
I learned a lot looking other photographers work, and sharing techniques and knowledge with them, in this case social media are very helpful, but I studied on books also.
I love sharing my pictures and the beauty of the sea, and remember, the first thing you need to be an underwater photographer is not a super uw gear, but a great passion and also a little bit of luck to encounter amazing subjects!

UWP JOSH BLANK

 




















JOSH BLANK
My name is Josh and I’m an underwater photographer based on the Gold Coast, Australia. I have been diving now for about 7 years and in that time have been lucky enough to witness and capture some pretty awesome interactions with some of the oceans’ largest and most exciting marine life.

Underwater photography is my passion and its my life’s goal to explore the ocean and share a moment with as many large marine species as I can. I hope that my images can inspire as many people as possible to take an interest in the underwater world, and perhaps even learn to dive so they can see it all for themselves! 

 A lot of the animals I’ve been lucky to meet up close have been inaccurately stereotyped as “indiscriminate killers” and I hope that my images serve as proof that this could not be further from the truth. 

If I can’t be in the water diving and taking photos, my next favourite thing to do is talk about diving. Feel free to shoot me a message on my socials!
