reviewed by Gabriele
Started working with photography about 16 years ago with my completely manual film camera, a Minolta SRT-101. I still use it sometimes but I mainly switched to digital in 2008. Now I use digital 35mm and MF film. Coming from the world of "real" photography I have quite a good knowledge of how photographs should look like and the rules they should respect (and sometimes break!). I have been taking pictures for commission in different fields: portraits, hotel photography, weddings, sports, kids. While for my own sake I love capturing the moment, I don't have a favourite field, I think a good photographer should be good at every kind of picture, not just one field and also be able to Photoshop.
