I'll be out for a while...

Written by
Dear friends,I'm writing you right now from my hotel room at the International Airport of Christchurch in New Zealand. In a few hours, weather permitting, along with other researchers and scientists of the "Programma Nazionale di Ricerche in Antarctica" (PNRA - Italian Antarctic program) we'll take off to reach the South Pole and face a new Antarctic campaign in "Mario Zucchelli Station" (MZS), the first Italian polar base Italian.During this time I will be working on a research project on the ecology and population genetics of Weddell seals, living for a while in close contact with them by means of…

Light (part 1)

Written by
Anyone who has a minimum of familiarity with photography knows full well that being able to recognise and fully master various types of light allows you to achieve entirely different images using the same subject and lens.

Written by
I have just returned from Lapland. That is why I have not been very present on the blog in the last two weeks. And even though I went there to shoot the images of a documentary that will be aired only next December, I wanted to give you a preview of this experience that has really been beautiful, both in terms of professional and personal enrichment.First of all, I begin by telling you one thing I am particularly proud of: this documentary (which I am producing for the RAI Tre program "Geo & Geo") tells the "true" story of Santa…

Travelling lenses

Written by
The report photographer or the filmmaker, especially if geographically and naturalistically orientated, must be able to deal with every kind of situation and should know how to respond technically (and creatively) to challenges. Seeing that his equipment often coincides with what can fit into a travelling bag, he will have at his disposal just a selected and limited lenses kit suitable for coping with the various needs that can occur during his work. However he must show ability in every photographic genre using what he has available in that moment. Knowing exactly how the same scene will react if captured…
