Matteo is born and raise in Milan the city of fashion and temptations. When he was child, every summer season he went to south Italy with his parents for holiday.
Armed with mask and fins, he’s spent hours and hours swimming and discovering the amazing creatures of the deep in the cold Tirrenean sea, until his father thought to tie him to a sub buoy because he’s used to swim very far away making her mom worried.
His first camera has been a disposable film camera.
Between 1990 and 2000 he lost himself in the Milan’s night life between parties and clubs.
After his black out season he heard again the voice of the sea so he took his OWD in Red sea, Egypt in 2000.
In 2006 he bought his first underwater camera, a Canon G7 in Canon housing. He’s fallen in love with macro world so in 2009 he updated his gear to a dslr camera (Canon 500D with Canon lens 100macro) in Sea&Sea housing. Two years later (2012) the big step at full frame, Canon 5D MK II and until today, with more than 400 dives all around the world, he is appreciating and enjoying underwater photography and underwater life. Dive by dive he is improving his skills using snoot, playing with the lights and the strobes, changing point of view, subjects and background. He loves to take pictures of our beautiful creatures that inhabit our ocean and share it to promote their conservation.
