About me:

In 2005, after a long career as a classical musician, I decided to turn my long love story with photography and with the Earth into my business. A BIPP Qualified Associate Landscape photographer, I love to travel our wonderful planet to portray it and share its beauty shooting Landscapes for my Fine Art Prints collection. I have been shooting in the American South-West, Scotland, Ireland, Isle of Man, UK, Italy, France and Turkey and my work has been exhibited and published internationally. A teacher for 20 years, I always have been passionate about sharing knowledge: teaching Workshop is the best way for me to share my enthusiasm for photography and for the Earth with like-minded people. When I am not in the field, I enjoy working on assignment, shooting mostly architecture and people.

  • Krusty79, yes indeed, I was there early Feb and one day we had a serious storm, heavy rain most of the day, until it cleared - just before sunset - allowing me to go out and shoot a few images. ...

    Dear Louis, thank you for your message, Antonioni's movie has been an important one for me as well; having been to Death Valley a few times already, every time I go the emotion is still the same. ...
  • Created discussion thread Sunrise at Zabriskie
    One morning at Zabriskie Point, in Death Valley, with the Leica M (Typ 240) and the 16-18-21mm Tri-Elmar @ 21mm. Enjoy. Best, Vieri
  • Created discussion thread Cottonwood Basin at Sunset
    A pretty exceptional view of one of the driest places on the planet, Death Valley, after a storm that transformed it in a salt lake for a short period of a few days or, sometimes, of just a few hours.
  • Great shot Louis, perfectly seen and executed :) Best, Vieri
  • jomsjoms, if you do Landscape photography, I would seriously recommend you to look into a square filter system instead. Format-HItech Firecrest are great, Lee filters are also very very good. Look ...
  • A quick solution to use square filters with the Leica Super-Elmar-S 24mm. 5 minutes work, no hacking involved: 100MM SQUARE FILTERS ON THE LEICA SUPER-ELMAR-S 24MM Best, Vieri
  • Thank you padam19, glad you enjoyed it. I didn't try the E version, however from what I see online I think you are right. I found it a pretty amazing feat, actually; while it's not perfect (no ...
  • Thanks you very much TClair, I am glad you found it interesting. It's an hack of course, but at least it makes it usable for those who, like me, depend on square filters for their Landscape work. Best,
  • Yes, were it, say, 17-35 FOV equivalent, I would have hesitated a bit longer in switching. 22mm FOV eq. is a bit too tight for my work. F2/.8 would have been great, but t'd have made it way too ...
