Jacopo Brunetti

My name is Jacopo Brunetti i'm italian biologist, underwater photographer and Padi Dive Master.I love sharks, i'm a shark's photographer, i dive with any species of sharks (except the Great White) trying to understand and study the behaviour and the possible interaction between human and sharks in the sea, in this way i've never used cage or any kind of protection. Through my photos i 'd like make people conscious about the problem of shark's conservation and change the bad opinion that a lot of people has about sharks: they are not killer animals but simply predators!
Since 2007 i worked as divemaster in Baja California, as a biologist in the Red Sea and as a professional naturaistic photographer, monitoring the conservation status of the barrier reef and working and speaking with a lot of people with different culture and nationality,in order to explain the rules for a conscious way of tourism. In november 2010 i completed my studies and graduated in Biological Sciences (2 year specialization) in the bio-ecological field at ?Università Milano Bicocca?
I dove in Egypt, South Africa, Philippines, Australia, and in Baja California, where i made a video-photo on silky sharks and a report of a shipwreck in which i was involved, transmitted by several other television networks such as Televisa, Channel 5 Rai 1 and Rai 2 where he was also TV host. Finally i explored the waters of the archipelago of the Azores, where i made shots of Mako sharks and blue sharks. With these pictures i organized the first photographic exhibition about sharks "Contatti nel blu" at the Civic Acquarium of Milan
Today i work as a biologist and technical diver at the Civic Aquarium of Milan, where i also perform frequently as a photographer organizing underwater photography courses and helping with photographic support communication.
i collaborate with the online magazine and television Scientia Antiquitatis, managing the section "Underwater World" with pictures and articles and working as a guide in dive travels sponsored by Scientia Antiquitatis. My next trips will be in Isla Malpelo in Colombia, South Africa, Indonesia, Isla Guadalupe in Mexico, Coco Island in Costa Rica, Bahamas and soon in the azores with the biggest animal of the world: the blue whale!
