Workshops/Scuba photo courses

Punta Campanella Diving Center  (SeaLand Adventure srl)

"In the few years of my career as a scuba world businessman, I realized that most divers, despite the relevance of the Gulf of Naples in the history of underwater research and the presence of three marine protected areas (over an area of 20 nautical miles), aren't aware of the diversity and beauty it offers". This is what Edoardo says about the beauty of the bottoms of the area where we go usually diving. This led him to develope the passion for the underwater photography since long time and to make friends with worldwide famous scuba photographers.
So periodically our diving center makes available for the guests these knowledges and experiences, organizing scuba photogragraphing workshops and theme dives.
Inform yourself when there will be next photo dive or workshops!!!

Here there are some photographers who collaborate with us:

Mimmo Roscigno

Mimmo Roscigno was born in Siena the 5th may of 1966. At present he teaches photography at the Liceo Artistico Giorgio de Chirico (Art School) in Torre Annunziata. Since he was a teenager, he's always shown an "insane" passion for the sea and for diving;at the beginning it was directed to spearfishing, then replaced by the great passion for underwater photography. For many years, he's been one of the few photographers all over the world to use exclusively medium format equipment, Rolleiflex and Hasselblad, for his underwater pictures; but in the last 4 years he moved on to digital photography. Roscigno has displayed his ciba chrome posters in many exhibits in Italy and abroad. In recent years he partecipated in many photo contests and, in about three years, he collected a placing in forty national and international competitions.
