“My name is Marco Maradei and I'm a 21 years old Photographer and Videomaker based in Florence, Italy. My work is focused on Lifestyle, Travel and Surf content but I like to speriment and enhance my skills by practicing all kinds of photography and videomaking.
I’ve always been into sports like skateboarding, motocross, bmx skiing, snowboarding and “extreme”sports
in general and that’s what made me pick up a camera in the first place.
My friends and I used to go out riding our motorbikes or skateboarding down the streets and film each other so we could create our own videos at the end of the day.
Then 6 years ago i discovered kitesurfing and my life has radically changed ever since. Now i’m costantly trying to combine my passion for photography and filmmaking with my love for the ocean and it has been taking me in so many beautiful places.
As soon as I started kitesurfing I immediately felt I had to document the sea and all the emotions that it gives us.
Nowdays it's the kind of photography I like to do the most.”
