Creator and organizer, is the undersigned Emanuele Vitale.
born in Siracusa, but long lived elsewhere. My early approach to scuba diving permitted me to have a broad overview of diving and brought me to become an instructor and taugt for years. Over the years I fell in love with underwater photography, and I immediately dedicated myself to the development of the use of compact cameras. In 2011 I won the Italian Championship of Underwater Photography in this category Compact. Now my specialization is to convey to those who come to visit me in my diving club, that underwater photography done with compact cameras and often not too expensive, can have unexpected outcomes.
Since December 2014, I collaborate with “Serial Diver”, the only online magazine legaly registered, and dedicated to all activities water related. My role is to study all issues related to underwater photography, with reviews on cameras, news, technical support and anything can be useful to those who approach to photography or who want to improve use of compact camera.With the publishing house “mediAterraneum”, publisher of Serial Diver, I wrote (upcoming release) the first book specifically dedicated to the world of underwater photography with compact cameras: in English and Italian.
