I have been taking photos since I was a Kid. This soon evolved into a passion, and after buying my first SLR (a Yashica) I started reading some books such as "The new manual of photography" by John Hedgecoe (award-winning british photographer 1932-2010). As a self-learner, I continued trying on the field and reading books, such as "the negative" by Ansel Adams. As soon as I could raise enough money I wanted to buy a Canon EOS 650, one of the first autofocus SLR, which gave me many good images. I never really fell in love with B&W because I love colors and usually I'm not willing to sacrifice them to a beautiful gray-scale image. But at that time I didn't have a clear idea of my future, so I left photography and sold everything, to follow other passions.
After a break of nearly 5 years, with the coming of the first digital cameras, the passion returned growing more and more. In this last years I'm trying to match my interests for nature, wildlife and sports with my passion for photography, taking pictures of sport competitions and travelling around the world to see new places. Canada, U.S., Alaska and Finland were the places I visited first, following the call of the Great Cold. After that I wanted to explore the biodiversity of tropics, travelling through Africa and Central America.
I always try to travel on myself or with local people, avoiding the crowd and getting deeper into the country, to understand more. This has given me the opportunity of learning how to organize and to manage a trip, and to solve unforeseen problems.
I want to offer my experience as tour leader and photography teacher on the field. I'm fluent in English and French, so I can also work as interpreter to accompany nature and photographic tours intended for Italian people needing Italian speaking tour leader. I Also work on assignment.
With my three websites I can advertise your tours, translate your offers, and become your representative for Italy.
