Last week we spent one day in Liguria, visiting Bogliasco & Varazze
Below a before / after picture with the basic settings applied
Pian di Sole is a small touristic hamlet just above Lago Maggiore, in the last days we had amazing views above the fog.
Quick tour in Venice, it is always a magical place to be. I wish for 2016 to spend a whole day in Laguna, from 5am till sunset, only focusing on taking pictures.
Librarsi Spalavera is the Greatest Bookshop in Verbania, and more is yet to come!
Starting with Why, starting with the real meaning behind a passion, the proudly handmade pictures that I like to think, invent, create & share.

Christmas @ Mount Spalavera
The picture above represent the typical image taken by accident, my camera was in the bag, an after 30min walking I've decided to take ii out and, at least, hang it to my shoulder. Few minutes later I took the picture below, then, during post-processing, I've tried a black & white + horizontal aspect and I liked even more.

After 2 years I've decided to Re-Design my personal website in two steps:
- Choose a cleaner template
- Re-Organize the galleries following more my actual photography style
Below you will find the biggest change in the template, the galleries are "in progress" this means that every week there will be some little improvements & changes
Christmas @ Mount Spalavera
Merry Xmas to everybody!!!
a Working Weekend Workshop.
"Every month I will work on a concept-A5 format-notebook and craft a limited edition of 10 numbered copies realized in just a weekend time.
The aim of the project is work with paper, prints, stamps, sticker, emboss and much more, standing on the thin line between hand made craft and industrial production."
All notebooks are Hand Made by Davide Longaretti and the full collection can be found following the link >> http://www.longa025.it/awww/
The pictures below are the result of the cooperation between me and Davide; This was the opportunity to know his creative passion.
All pictures are made with a single umbrella and a Nikon Speed-light.
