Italy. It’s just beautiful. Part TWO

Memories, postcards, people walking around you taking photos. In this second part of my post dedicated to my beautiful country, I want to take you around Santa Margherita Ligure, Portofino and Camogli. Colours are all around you when you walk to Portofino. Blue, yellow, green. The smell of the sea, the sound of waves smashing against the rocks and on the beach.

When you walk just above the road that leads to Portofino for the first time you wonder what you would get once you there. There is this gorgeous path under the trees and you walk through shadows, sun shining over your head. It’s so beautiful. Then when you get there you see what’s all about.

Tourist everywhere looking around for the best spot to frame in their memories shoot on their latest smartphones. All the restaurants that 1 hour earlier were all empty with the waitresses wondering if at least one person will guest at their table, are now busy taking care of the customer. Spaghetti and seafood. This is it. This is the only thing you want to eat there right? Portofino in its small building and spaces it’s so gorgeous, romantic and it still looks a postcard of memories from the ’50s.

But Portofino is not the only pearl. Camogli it’s also a wonderful place. To be fair you can be surprised from this small beautiful corner on the sea.

I talked too much right now. Let’s enjoy some pictures now.

Italy. It’s just beautiful. Part ONE

When you travelling back to your beloved country an emotion is always growing deep down inside you. You reconnect with your family, parents and friends but on top of everything you reconnect and spend time with the person your love. If you adding to all that a wonderful time spent in Liguria discovering wonderful places like Santa Margherita, Portofino and Camogli you can’t ask more then that.

Santa Margherita Ligure is a wonderful town where the sea is crystal blue, with wonderful marine life to admire. Sea stars, beautiful tiny fish swimming in groups in those wonderful water. We spent 3 great sunny days walking around discovering places, restaurants, little markets where you can buy amazing handcraft gifts. Anyway in this first post I’m going to show you some black and white pictures I took during these days of fun, rest and amazing time.

#throwbackthursday (episode ONE)

Here I am with my fist episode of  #throwbackthursday following my 2008 resolution plan. Last week I posted every single #tbt as single images but I didn’t like really like that way to keep my website update and live. I prefer to post single pictures when I really need to show everyone something amazing or something I really love.

So the first pictures was shoot in 2008 in Montenegro and it was a wonderful discovery. I literally felt in love with the places. Sveti Dorde Island. I have been told that young men go there to pray the week before they will become priest. The surrounding was amazing and so quite. You could feel the sound of the sea and nothing more. Feeling so low and quite at the same level of the sea was wonderful.

These were my first pictures made with a digital camera. At that time I owned a Canon D350. I was thrilled to move from film to digital because at that point the technology was good enough to worth the change. A lot is change since then and I’m excited by all these changes and how photography in these years evolved. As you all know by now I turn myself into a mobile photographer and I’m completely devote to this change and my new journey.

Thank you for ready guys. See you next time

Project

Soul, nature, portrait and Rock & Roll

One … Two … One, Two … and music play. Benedetto is and italian singer that bring soul and love in his passion, in his music and was really a great pleasure and honour to take portrait photos for his album. We have been immerse in the lovely Italian countryside for 2 days of private shooting. He was completely immersed in the nature and the spirit of his music, singing his song and filling the air with his deep lyrics. It was fantastic and surreal catching the emotion of his talent and the vibes of his soul through the days. The sun was out and Benedetto was shining and the pictures I captured reflected the great heart and soul he had. I enjoyed the emotions of those days.

A modern journey in the past.

A week ago I was organising my pictures following my rise from to be a dead photographer and focusing on a complete mobile life with iPad and iPhone and I found a couple of interesting pictures I took on my way back from Monaco. I was there for work but it was still fun. We planned to go back to our house in Italy by train conscious that the journey wasn’t the same as in UK. Most people in England complain about their transport, carriages quality but trust me you have to try our trains. Don’t get me wrong. If you travelling with the new high speed trains you will be pleased but when you need to move internally, well your journey into the past is about to start.

Be part of this beautiful day is amazing and lovely. I feel part of that day of these people of those families. It’s not just go there, setting up camera, light, and ideas.It’s more deep and personal. It’s something you live, something you take part with your bride and your groom. Yes you right. I never talk about clients, but people that believe in you and your talent and that become more then clients. They will be part of your life. You live that day like them. You live that day because you want they will remember anytime they will take a look at their album how they felt on that day.

Goooood Morning World!

My alarm set in readiness for a bright and early start….. It awakes me at 4.00 am, I stir by opening one eye at a time and looking out into the still darkened sky I was wondering ……………………………. why I am I doing this… I enjoy a very early morning breakfast of Honey, Bread and some refreshing tea, packed my equipment and head for the hills in my car in readiness to greet the glorious morning sunrise. On route, I listen to my music, not quite in the mind to sing-a-long to my favourite tunes, far too early, but it certainly keeps me focused and awake on my journey.  One hour later, I reach  the wonderful hills around Piacenza, I  head for Val  Tidone and hopefully my sense of direction leads to me to the right destination I had found on Google Earth which I felt was a good place I wanted to be. On arrival, I felt delighted, in looking into the hills and the flats of the land surrounding me, the sun was just about to rise through the haze of the early dawn, it revealed a beauty I had hoped for and the perfect setting for my photography. Now I look back to when my alarm awoke me at 4 am and know exactly why I was doing this……. It was to say… Good Morning World and I am so happy to be a part of your new dawning  day !
