In this exclusive Zoom interview, Jeff Goodman, Scubaverse Editor-at-Large, chats to Maria (Mary) Bereozka, winner of the Scubaverse February video competition about her work and films.

Her winning video can be seen on Scubaverse HERE.

Maria Bereozka Bio in her own words…

I am passionate about the underwater world.

My love for diving happened in 2018 and completely turned my life around.

I was born and grow up in the city of Minsk, Belarus and we don’t have a sea. I lived in a not calm area and my mother would not let me play alone on the street. I just counted the hours until the program about the underwater world of Jacques Yves Cousteau. I dreamed of seeing all the beauty of the underwater world and visiting all these exotic countries. But my mother told me that this is all a fairy tale and I want too much…

At the age of 14, my mother died and I forgot about my dreams for a long time. After many years, I tried diving in Egypt and could not leave the sea. Now: I learned freediving on my own, without a computer and post-processing, with a $25 camera, and entered the top 100 underwater photographers of the 35awards 2020 international competition only thanks to online information and freelancing.

I have been living for the last 6 years in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt. I am in the top 100 underwater photographers and top 50 photographers in Egypt for the 6th 35awards 2020. I am in the top 70 underwater photography nominations, top 50 underwater photography, top 100 photography Belarus 7th 35awards. I was among the finalists of the underwater photo awards Fotovideosub 2021 – https://fotovideosub.es/participantes-concurso-de-fotografia-submarina-fotovideosub-2021/, and Siena Awards 2021. I shoot on a Go Pro 9 camera. I am a Rescue Diver.

I created my YouTube channel: www.youtube.com/channel/UCi7tKqgWuyuPKJ-Jaa9tcPw about the underwater world of the Red Sea, and my Instagram is 99% underwater content: www.instagram.com/mary_bereozka/ .
