My name is Paolo, currently 39 years old. After spending over a decade travelling all around the world for a multinational Italian industrial company, I felt it was time to come back home and do something a little bit different with my life. Be a photographer.
Over the last 8 years I've built up my photography professionalism working in Milano (Italy) for editorial market and stock agencies.
I occasionally have people take an interest in my lifestyle and travels. I visited 50 countries, more or less, with a focus on Europe and Asia. I love traveling, photography, play chess and speak with people.
About my photography...
From 2009 I've built up a collection of images (with focus on travel photography) which are available for license on a number of online microstock photo agencies on a royalty free basis. I shoot with a Canon 5D MK II camera with professional L series lenses and process all files from RAW (exceptionally, on jpg when is mandatory to use a compact camera for size reasons). My workflow is optimized from capture through to the final output to ensure that maximum image quality is retained. Files are generally not heavily processed - I use the absolute minimum of sharpening and noise reduction to ensure that images can be used for a wide variety of end products. For me, optical quality and capturing an image in the best light are of critical importance.
To organize files using Lightboxes, you must first register or log in. Lightboxes allow you to create your own groups of files, manage files within a group, and share them with friends and colleagues. You are encouraged to add files to Lightboxes in order to sort them properly, or save them for future purchases.
Lightboxes are like folders for files you're interested in. You may create numerous lightboxes based on your projects or topics, add files inside and then easily buy them. We also offer a feature that allows you to email a lightbox to your friends, family and clients. Lightboxes are very powerful and useful tool for cataloguing and purchasing files.
