OK, what do you do when is the hottest day in London (36C)? Well, obviously, you go out and enjoy the weather! And shoot a few pictures along the way! At least that's what I did.I like hot weather. Very much. It should go without saying because I'm half-Italian but many people who grew in hot weather conditions actually don't enjoy them much. Not me. The "normal" temperature in London during

A once in a lifetime opportunity, that's what photographing Comet Neowise over London (or anywhere else, really) is! I'm not going to dive in too many descriptions of the event. I'm sure you all know about it by now and I'm not an astronomy guru.What makes this a once in a lifetime event is that the comet was only discovered last March and it won't be visible again for another

In this week's YouTube video, I take it to the streets of London for some street photography in harsh light. Oftentimes you hear photographers say that the best time for photography is during the so-called Golden Hour (right after sunrise and before sunset) or Blue Hour (the dim light before sunrise and after sunset). And while these bring plenty of good quality light, they are not necessarily the ONLY times

First day of shops reopening in UK and I immediately went out for a post-lockdown street photo challenge in Chinatown.And you can watch whole of it on my YouTube channel! :) Filming and editing for YouTube is so much fun I really feel stupid for having procrastinated for so long. I always found plenty of excuses that in the end don't matter at all. Yes, I'm nervous being on the

As of today, the London lockdown is still not as strict as in other cities around the world but it is a lockdown nonetheless. The measures to fight coronavirus have imposed restrictions on travel, both internally and between countries, and therefore many places now look like scenes from an apocalyptic Hollywood film. Particularly in those areas where flocks of tourists usually cram every empty corner, the view is very much

Some of my friends joke that I never sleep. That's because they see me publishing photos taken any time of the day. As a landscape photographer, I shoot a lot during the Blue Hour or the Golden Hour, when the light is absolutely amazing. With my recent interest in street photography, I now shoot a lot during the harsh light of the day as well. Or at night, playing with

The photo I'm presenting today, shot during storm Ciara, is the one that made me think about starting this Story Behind The Shot series.The story is not dissimilar to the one I narrated in a previous post. But it didn't occur to me back then to make it into regular episodes. Starting from today, this will be a topic of my newsletter as well (to which you should subscribe, here).

Last night was the first time I went out to photograph London's New Year fireworks. In previous years, either I was not even in London or I decided to enjoy a better view and no waiting in the cold from the comfort of my sofa. But not last night. I teamed with my friend Martyn to go out and scout for a place South of London. The main idea was to

Early this morning, like every year, the Smithfield Christmas auction takes place outside of Hart's Of Smithfield in London's meat market. Please read carefully before proceeding! The Christmas auction was a butcher shop sale. If you're vegetarian/vegan or get offended or upset by the view of raw meat, I heartily recommend you go back to the home page and read a different article. I would never want to trouble you

Together with John Hughes, I will be hosting a street photography workshop in London on the 23rd of November. John and I have become friends through photography. We have met several times for photo walks in London and went shooting together a few times as well. John is a well known talented street photographer. I learned a lot from hanging out with him and all the people he's connected me
