One of the best ways to learn photography is to see other photographers’ work. We try to find some of the best underwater photographers in the world, and showcase their work, along with the gear they use, to help other aspiring photographers improve, learn new skills and get inspired.
This week we will feature the talented Lorenzo Mittiga!
Lorenzo is an awarded professional photographer/videographer, PADI instructor (with over 5500 dives in the professional world) and marine biologist. As a diving instructor since the 1990’s he has worked in many different places, including Italy, Seychelles, Red Sea, Mauritius and Bonaire. As a videographer he started working in the 90’s for the Italian television, taking part in the production of many ocean related and underwater documentaries and series, filming from Italy to Australia and participating in many expeditions, shooting also in 3D for Universal Pictures. Lorenzo has worked in cinema as well, filming various productions of underwater scenes for popular movies and commercial spots, shooting also for Walt Disney (Life Aquatic with Zissou).
Today Lorenzo is completely dedicated to photography. He shoots for brands such as NiMAR (for which he is the official photographer and ambassador), FlexArms Underwater systems (for which he is an ambassador) and Scuba Diving Magazine. Lorenzo is also committed to teaching photography and videography, striving to pass along his passion for his work and experience!
