Pietro Formis

Born in Milan in 1978, always involved in the world of imaging, a sea lover since he was a child.

Underwater photography became his passion, if not an obsession, and led him to travel to tropical paradises and explore the Mediterranean sea and the italian fresh waters.

Through his images he tries to make the viewer dream and in this way, bring him closer to the creatures of the submerged sea. The atmosphere is a fundamental part of his shots, in which he enhances the beauty of nature itself. However, in many of his works he documents the reality of our oceans as they are, fragile and in danger, polluted and depauperated.

He Published his works on international magazines and he was awarded in many international awards such WPY – Wildlife Photographer of the Year, GDT – European Wildlife photographer of the Year, Sony World Photo, UPY and Others.

He Leads photographic workshops in Italy and worldwide; is ambassador for photographic gear Marelux and scuba diving gear Beuchat.
