4 Weeks of Instagram content in just 30 minutes
20th December 2020

That’s right: I created 4 weeks’ worth of Instagram content walking in Central London for less than 30 minutes. It could even be more than 4 weeks, considering I’m a bit of a slow uploader. But here you’ll see 20 photos I find worth sharing. And at 5 a week, it is 4 weeks of Instagram content. Taken on a 30 minutes walk. In case you think you don’t have time for...

London lockdown photography | In Pictures
5th November 2020

London lockdown, again… England is entering its second national lockdown phase today as Coronavirus/Covid-19 cases have risen sharply. This gives me the opportunity to finally present my London lockdown photography project on YouTube. Back when I took the photos, I wasn’t producing content for my channel yet. So, unfortunately, I didn’t film my usual POV footage. But I did document the empty streets of London in these eerie images. I wasn’t too...

Rain Photography in London
15th October 2020

Time for some rain photography! Street photography, to be exact. Most foreigners think it always rains in London, but in reality it’s mostly cloudy or just drizzling (and we do have sunny days, harsh ones too). Now, coming from Italy, I don’t really fancy going out when it’s grey, let alone pouring rain. But I do appreciate it’s a very good opportunity for photography. And so I force myself to do it...

What's In My Camera Bag
27th August 2020

You likely see the “What’s In My Camera Bag” videos all over YouTube. It’s quite a popular topic for several reasons: people are genuinely interested in what professionals use, it satisfies the Gear Acquisition Syndrome, it’s a way for a content creator to put out some affiliate links (they do help), etc. And even though I do not do too many reviews, I had to publish my own version too. If only...

vlog mitakon lens for street photography
20th August 2020

I did ask myself if the Mitakon 35mm f/0.95 could indeed be the hardest lens for street photography. Despite the clickbait title, this was a genuine question I had. And so I decided to give it a good test. To this day, Fujifilm does not release blueprints for its lenses to other manufacturers. So you don’t often see other brands produce lenses for the X-Mount. One brand that comes to mind is...

Fujifilm GFX 50S
14th August 2020

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 the medium format to photograph paintings, sculptures and all masterpieces of the great museums we have in my hometown! So this format...

hottest day in London
6th August 2020

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 up in hot weather conditions, actually don’t enjoy them much. Not me. The “normal” temperature in London during...

Tate Gallery Reopens
31st July 2020

The Tate Gallery reopens this week after a 4-month closure due to the pandemic. Actually, not just the Tate Modern but all Tate galleries across the UK. I’m very happy this is finally happening. As a Tate member, an art-lover but as a photographer as well. The Tate, specifically the Tate Modern, is a massive playground for all London-based street photographers. Its architecture may not appeal to everyone. I, for one, am...

Recipe for Black and White photography
7th July 2020

What do I mean by a recipe for Black and White photography? Fujifilm photographers should be familiar with the concept of recipes already. For everybody else, it is a combination of in-camera settings that allows, among other things, to recreate the effects of old analogue films. Something that Fujifilm is very passionate about, having created some of the most spectacular colour films in the good old years. Frankly, I don’t know if...

Photography in Harsh Light
2nd July 2020

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 to go...

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”, and we can have gatherings of up to 6 people… We’re getting there. I’m not travelling yet, even though I desperately want to. Therefore my engagements are...

First day of shops reopening in the UK and I immediately went out for a post-lockdown Street Photo challenge in Chinatown.And you can watch it unfold on my YouTube channel! 🙂 Filming and editing for YouTube is so much fun I really feel silly 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 other side...

4th June 2020

As you may know, if you follow me on Instagram, I spent last weekend going out doing a full Fujifilm X100V hands-on test. And I vlogged with the X-T4 in the meantime. I’m actually excited because it is my first vlog on YouTube! Something I had procrastinated for soooooo long. I finally managed to launch my YouTube photography channel only a few weeks ago and now I published my first vlog! To...

Oxford street photo walk | portrait
1st March 2020

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 street style, with...
