Artistic Landscapes

My Mission

Translate what the eyes see and often the camera can't. Using stacking and combining different exposures, only to reproduce reality in all its art, without fictions and replacements.

My Process

What I Do

I love pre-production: planning the final picture before shoting, something really needed if you want to make complex pictures. I usually take multiple shoot for a single subject and superimpose them in post, to obtain one final image with more information. Below you can find what I mean, and in My Portfolio you will see all this techniques in action.


For star-trails and milky-way shoots my process is the same: taking several shots and stacking them one over the other. In one case to obtain the moving stars, in the other to have less noise and more details. For both I always shoot the sky in the same location of the ground, planning to have a good composition between them.


It consist in combining different photos taken at different hours in the same place, allowing merging different light separated by several hours in one single picture. I use it in daytime landscape to fuse sunset and sunrise, or in nightscapes to combine a clear blue-hour foreground with the night sky of some hours later.

Light Painting

Sometimes I like to animate the scene making light-trails using a torch, or lighting effects using steel-wool fire. As for the other techniques a lot of planning and attempts are needed, and I usually take several shoots and combine them in post to extend and maximize the effect.

Vertical Pano

Often to have all what I see in my picture I have to make a panorama: usually a vertical one. Once I do so, I have to make for every section of the pano all the effects in this list, making several attempts to create photos that can join correctly. The result is a very big and complex final image.

Landscapes Showcase

My favourite shoots are the night ones: I love astrophotography and shooting dark skies. My second love is distorting time thanks to what I call "superlong-exposure" of several minutes or hours. Here you can find a small selection of photos I think best describe my style, but you can see a more complete collection below in My Galleries.

About me.

I am a designer from Milan, so creativity is already part of my work. I like to travel and discover new places, but always with the aim of taking pictures. I dedicate great care to location-scouting with long mountain hikes in search of the perfect spot. I always shot the real night-sky of the subject, planning pictures where the milkyway is co-protagonist of the scene.

My star Maps

Nightsky Cartography

I love nightsky, and I love to know what I'm looking at when I shoot my astrophoto. For this reason, I started researching on star atlantes to understand the name of the stars in my pictures, and I decided to make star-maps on top of my shots. It’s a very frustrating work, done totally by hand on Adobe Illustrator, but I really like the result: it make everything more real and deep in meaning. Here a little collection of Star Maps.
