Scubapro’s New Dive Local Programme

Published

on

Why go far away when first-class dive spots are waiting right on your doorstep! Scubapro’s new DIVE LOCAL program focuses on just that – the best dive spots in the region!

The new DIVE LOCAL program was developed to put more focus on diving locally. Professionals from the industry present the best dive spots in their region, including practical tips on how to get there, diving season, equipment, training and dive stores that make an unforgettable trip there possible. The range goes from dive sites in lakes, rivers, dams, a mine to unique coastal spots! Another advantage: The latest diving equipment can be tested and dived in, so the active diver stays in training and is optimally prepared when it’s time to travel again!

The Scubapro DIVE LOCAL program is constantly updated with new spots – so it’s worth staying tuned!

As part of the DIVE LOCAL program Scubapro ambassador and underwater photographer Tobias Friedrich and underwater photographer and videographer Marc Hillesheim will present exclusive dive spots from their region and home country Germany. Other countries with professionals on site are planned for the future.

Scubaverse UWP Winners Gallery: Raffaele Livornese

Published

on

Each month we give the winner of the Scubaverse Underwater Photography competition the opportunity to show off a little more of their work in a gallery. The January winner was Raffaele Livornese and you can see his winning image at the top of this page.


What do you love about diving & underwater photography?

I love the sensation of liberty when I’m diving and love so much uw photography because it permits me to report to all the people what they normally are unable to see. Often I love the interaction with some animals I’m shooting, they looks at me curiously, it seems they are trying to understand what I’m doing.

Where do you dive?

I dive normally in Italy on Sunday or when I’m free from work, but 2 times a year I travel with my wife, 1 time for macro photography and 1 time for wide-angle photography, so we look for the best destinations like Philippines, Indonesia and Baja California.

What equipment do you use?

I use a Nikon D850 full frame camera with a Hugyfot housing, Nikkor 60mm and 105mm macro lens, Sigma 15mm fisheye lens and a Nikkor 16-35 wide angle zoom lens. For the light I have 2 Inon Z330 strobes and an Orcatorch D910V focus light.

Where can our readers see more of your work?


To enter the latest Scubaverse Underwater Photography competition, with a chance to win some great prizes as well as have your own gallery published, head over to the competition page and upload up to 3 images.
