It has joined the passion for travel and the naturalistic photography with particular attention to birdlife photography.
The need to feel more and more tied to the aspects of nature far from human influence has led in recent years to experiencing the lonely journey even in routes outside the usual tourist flows.
The philosophy of my shots is the case. No shot in any photographic genre, is made by involving the subjects or asking them to pose or move according to my will and interest. Each of my shots shows a moment, a segment of real life. Sometimes the subjects themselves, humans or animals, try to relate to me or my camera, but they are shots that I do not particularly love and often I delete. I love thinking of being an unnoticed observer, I look for total spontaneity. The maximum pleasure in a shot I savor when I can in a few moments to identify and capture a situation that clearly tells the moment I live and its deepest meaning.
