|Message from Maurizio Lanini
I’m MAURIZIO LANINI , I was born in Rome ( Italy ) in 1955 and I developed my interest in natural history and animals when I was very young .
Following this passion in 1980 I achieve my degree in Marine Biology, that became my first interest of the natural world, I began photographing wildlife initially from the desire to share my experiences and observations of the natural world and since 1979 I joint my love for natural world and for animals with my interest for photography . I’m married with Anna and with our sons , Daniele and Martina , living my same passion for the sea and diving.
In 1982 started a collaboration with Panda Photo’s Agency in Rome and since 1997 I started a new collaboration with the International Photographic Agency “ Corbis “ .
Many of my photographies has been published in magazines as Airone and Oasis , books , exhibitions , displays , company reports and screensavers for PC .
In 1995 I was highly commended in the Urban Wildlife category of the BG Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition.
I work using a Canon equipment and , for underwater photography , now I use a Subal housing for Canon EOS 5 D MKII .
