I rented the Fujifilm GFX 50S for a job (office interiors and corporate headshots). But I still had some spare time to use it before sending it back to Fuji. So of course I made a video! I used medium format cameras in the past. When in Florence, I worked with medium format to photograph paintings, sculptures and all masterpieces of the great museums we have in my hometown! So this

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

The Tate Gallery reopens this week after a 4 months closure due to the pandemic. Actually, not just the Tate Modern but all Tate galleries across UK. I'm very happy this is finally happening.

And while these bring plenty of good quality light, they are not necessarily the ONLY times

You read it right: my photography workshops are back. The lockdown measures are easing in UK. And what the government just announced is finally allowing me to restart hosting my photography workshops. Shops are reopening, the safe distance is reduced to "1 metre plus", can have gatherings of up to 6 people

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

This week I talked about the recent photowalk in Oxford with other fellow photographers in this post. It was a fun day. And I managed to try a few new things with my photography, including setting my camera display in black and white to focus more on shape and contrast. During the photowalk, I took a few shots I was pleased with. Many of them not too dissimilar from my usual
