About me:

I have a passion for photography. I started with a Nikon Coolpix 3500 several years ago. Since then I've never stopped upgrading equipment and trying to learn how to achieve the perfect frame.

I wish I had more time to upload my pictures, but my newborn son and my job occupy the most of my time. I'm happy enough to have the time to look at the pictures of other users and get inspired.

Despite the fact that we are living in the digital era, I have a passion for old Minolta manual lenses. I believe they bring back the magic of the film era, as they require patience for every shot, compared to the machine gun approach we often end up using with modern fully automated DSLRs.

In a particularly intense GAS seizure, I bough some old film SLRs and Range Finders. These cameras are a pleasure to use, once you CLAed them.

Once in a while I work as freelance photographer for a known website.
This give me the chance to meet nice new people and refine my photographic skills.
