In my opinion a picture comes from an inner desire. At the source a photo is always the result of an act of love toward something that touches us deeply, in my case the mountains. This is a breeding ground which leads each time to a new idea, project, converging in the subsequent active commitment in realizing it, with will, deployment of resources, time, knowledge, money and, in case of my specific photographic field, a lot of physical/mental effort.

This undertaking is on the spot. Therefore, it is essential a great knowledge of the places I want to capture, what they potentially can offer and when. With all possible approximations, because having to deal with the unpredictable forces of nature is anything but easy.

The study of the exposure to the cardinal points is essential, as well as the study of the night sky on special maps for stars shooting. I also need mountaineering-survival equipment suited to the places where I want to venture.

Post-production must be never invasive, in full respect to the supreme art of nature and to the enormous efforts made on the spot. Rather a valuable support to compensate the intrinsic limitations of our cameras.

I am a professional musician, seriously interested in photography since 2007.

I love exploring the Alps.
The resulting pictures are just the top of an "iceberg" that symbolizes a personal path of continuous and deep research about the ancient mysteries of this world and the universe.
Sometimes I think that photography is just a personal excuse to return in certain places, look for new ones... and so continue the "endless journey".

I am conscious concerning the difficulties to render, respectfully, in a single image, all the magnificence I see, on place, with my own eyes....
That's why I am devoting a profound sense of discipline and responsibility in this activity, as a due tribute to the wonderful places I am visiting and also because I can't stand the idea of wasted beauty.
Sometimes I am successful in my efforts, other times less...
In any case I feel as interacting with impermanence, somehow "freezing in time" landscapes that will never appear the same again, in a constant immense flux of no fixed nature.
