About Pietro Cremone
I was born in Feb. 1964 in Castellammare di Stabia and since when I was a kid I was attracted by the sea. I went underwater with mask and fins at 5 years and since then my love for the underwater sea has always grown up. When I was a teenager I started to spearfish but then I left the speargun for a underwater camera, a small Minolta. Then I housed my first SLR, a Nikon Fg, but it was really difficult to get good pictures, doing free diving and having to manual focus! Finally I had my first digital camera and gradually I always improved my equipment to achieve better results.
The passion for underwater photography has become so important to me that I decided to turn it in to work, so in 2009 I founded Digital Media Service, to sell underwater photo equipment. And in 2012 I have become the official Nauticam’s distributor for Italy. Also my pictures started to improve and in 2012 I won some competitions, first place macro in Divers for Africa contest, first place wide angle mediterranean in the Underwater Venice Photo contest and MyShot contest, and Photographer of the Year in the Eilat Red Sea online competition.
My preferred kind of photo is the wide angle, but I really enjoy the macro and supermacro shots.
