mymizu Ambassador

mymizu Ambassador

Meet our very first mymizu Ambassador; the one and only Ai Futaki (@aifutaki)! Ai is a Double Freediving Guinness World Record holder, and one of the very few people in the world who conveys the splendours of the sea in various ways including as an underwater video photographer, presenter and freediving instructor. When we first met Ai, we were blown away by her warm character, her remarkable art and underwater photography, and her achievements as a world-class freediver, but most of all, by her insistence that we reevaluate our relationship with nature. We shared both a sense of urgency about the decline of our natural environment, as well as a passion to make things better. So we were thrilled when she agreed to become our first mymizu Ambassador! Together, united by a shared vision and passion for our planet, we are creating a movement for a more sustainable world.

less plastic, more fun!
At mymizu, we’re on a mission to change everyday consumer behaviour, from unsustainable to environmentally responsible! Together, we’re building a world in which sustainable living is easy and fun!

It is time to recenter ourselves with nature and to reconnect deeply We are all coexisting with mother earth. I am part of the water…, be ONE with the water.

cada día un fotógrafo

cada día un fotógrafo

2020-Abril-04 Cada día un fotógrafo

El blog «Fotógrafos en la red» o «Cada día un fotógrafo«, como queráis llamarlo, consiste en escribir cada día una pequeña reseña sobre un fotógrafo, más o menos conocido, con una foto suya y varias referencias donde poder ampliar el conocimiento de su biografía o su obra. También pueden incluirse citas suyas y una lista de libros que ha escrito o en los que ha colaborado.

El autor es Luis Martínez Aniesa (natural de Nuévalos, provincia de Zaragoza, vive en San Sebastián hace muchos, muchos años) y es fotógrafo aficionado desde siempre, pero hace 15 años, con la fotografía digital, volvió con fuerzas renovadas tras un periodo de ausencia.

2月11日(火)NHK BSプレミアム「プレシャスブルー 〜ガラパゴス 奇跡の海を撮る〜」再放送

フリーダイバーの二木あいさんが世界の海に潜る人気シリーズ第4弾。舞台は絶海の孤島ガラパゴス。その海に秘められたミステリーを、動物たちと交流しながらひもといていく。

6分間も海に潜れるフリーダイバーが、シャチやジュゴンとの出会いにあきたらず、向かったのはガラパゴス。大陸から流れ着き、ふるさとに帰れなくなった生き物たちが、海での生存競争を生き抜くために自らの姿を変えた壮絶な生に迫った。「ミニ恐竜」にしか見えないウミイグアナや、羽が退化してしまった鳥、ガラパゴスコバネウや、ミニでメタボなガラパゴスペンギンによりそうと、ぐっと「進化の理由」が目の前に迫ってくる。

2月11日(火曜日)NHKBSプレミアム 午前9:00〜午前10:30 プレシャスブルー 〜ガラパゴス 奇跡の海を撮る〜

Spring Stepにて連載スタート 第1回「中今」の世界

水中表現家、二木あいさんによる連載がスタートしました。

あいさんは、自らの「水中表現家」としての活動と、自身が撮影した写真や動画を通じて、長年海の美しさや水中動物の生態について伝えながら、海洋自然の保護を訴えています。 フリーダイバーとして、ギネス記録の保持者でもあるあいさんは、タンクを使わずに潜ることで呼吸による泡を避けることができるため、水中動物との距離を縮めて、あいさんにしか撮ることができない心揺さぶられる多くの写真や動画を撮影されています。

SpringStepのスタッフも以前からあいさんの作品が大好きで、今回連載を書いていただけることが決まりみんなでとても喜んでいます! そんなあいさんの連載初記事です。

Blancpain Ocean Commitment Event in Tokyo

Blancpain Ocean Commitment Event in Tokyo

Since the release of the Fifty Fathoms, the first modern diving watch, in 1953, Blancpain has been closely connected to the underwater world.
To share its passion for the oceans and increase the public’s understanding of the multiple initiatives undertaken within its global oceanographic program, the Manufacture launched this year its Blancpain Ocean Commitment (BOC) exhibition. After being presented in several countries around the world, this exhibition recently made a stopover in Tokyo at the famous Ginza Six building. This was a unique opportunity for the Japanese public to discover the brand’s 66-year heritage in the development of diving watches, as well as its long-term involvement in favour of ocean conservation projects.

During two days, VIP guests were welcomed inside Ginza Atrium’s magnificent Tsutaya Book Store to explore the BOC universe through a variety of showrooms. While having the opportunity to discover a selection of vintage and contemporary Fifty Fathoms models, along with underwater photographic artworks by Blancpain partners, visitors were also offered an exclusive private screening of a documentary on the history of the iconic Fifty Fathoms collection.

Following this tour, Ms. Ai Futaki – renowned free diver and Japanese BOC partner – as well as Mr. Yoshi Hirata – photographer of the 2018 Edition Fifty Fathoms publication – were present on this special occasion to share with guests their respective experiences and connections to the marine world.
