Rome Film Fest 2019 – Photo Gallery

_MG_6146b

Every year since 2006, when the Festival was born, in October I attend the Rome Film Fest as a film critic for my cineblog Una Vita da Cinefilo. I studied cinema at the university so watching movies is probably my biggest passion, maybe more than photography. Anyway, my camera is always with me, so as every year I had the possibility to take pictures to actors (Edward Norton, Bill Murray, John Travolta), directors (Martin Scorsese, Kore’eda Hirokazu, Ron Howard, Ethan Coen, Wes Anderson), common people and go on with my series Film People, that I invite you to follow. Here a selection of images from Festa del Cinema 2019.

Do you remember when you begun to take photos? You was full of enthusiasm, you used to take pictures to everything, everybody in every moment. Then, when you get more experience, you begin to shoot less, but the quality of your pictures is better. Finally, mostly when photography becomes your job, you have to face a crisis, a lack of motivation slides inside your brain, you are sick of your camera and bored to take pictures. But don’t worry, it’s pretty normal and there are a lot of ways to overcome this crisis and get new inspirations.

Roma Photo Marathon 2019

I’m back after a move to a new flat so, as you can guess, I’m exhausted. But in these weeks I had some great news, at the beginning of September I’ve been awarded at Roma Photo Marathon, where I collected three prizes: Best picture in the category “Swirls”, the second prize in the category “Five” and the third prize as Best Photographer of the Marathon. The Photo Marathon is a contest where you have to shoot during one day nine picture, one for each category. The organization give three themes every three hours, so it’s a very interesting challenge. So happy for this recognition among hundreds of other photographers.

Film People Q&A

Già da qualche mese ho cominciato il mio nuovo progetto Film People, di cui vi ho già parlato più volte (in breve: si tratta di una serie di ritratti dove ogni persona è associata al titolo del suo film della vita). Visto che spesso le persone ritratte (e non solo) mi fanno giustamente molte domande a proposito di questo progetto, ho deciso di raccogliere le domande in questo post per soddisfare pienamente la vostra curiosità. Per vedere tutte le foto del progetto potete visitare il sito Film People o il profilo Instagram apposito: filmpeopleproject.

Back in Rome after a beautiful month between Southern Italy (Monopoli, as every summer of my life) and Greece (Athens and then Kimolos, for a wedding). All the images of this selection are taken in these locations, waiting for my new summer pictures in Rome. As every month, I show you my 10 best street photos of the last 30 days (this time just a couple of pictures are good, but it’s ok, the most of the month I’ve been in holidays). And where are you? Or where are you going?

About Wedding Photography

IMG_6457b

I don’t like labels, but if I have to describe myself, I could say that I am a Fine Art Photographer or maybe a Street Photographer (because I can’t define myself “artist”, it’s something that only other people can tell about you, I guess). The most of my work is about urban photography, as you know, but sometimes I also do wedding photography. When? Only for friends that ask me so, as a gift, or for people that permit me to shoot it in my way, as a reportage, as a street photographer. This is my condition.
