PHOTOGRAPHER LIVING IN ITALY, WORKING WORLDWIDE
I'm Claudio, I'm from a beautiful village in Italy called Ivrea. I have a border collie called Leep who is 8 years old now. I trained her myself and she comes with me on my Workshops whenever I can bring her.
I'm a professional photographer specialised in "dog photography". I'm also a Nikon Ambassador for Italy and a Nikon School Master. I also collaborated to create the "Master di Fotografia" with Corriere della Sera, Gazzetta dello Sport and Nikon.
I got into dog photography thanks to the passion for dogs that was born first. Then, the photography arrived and year after year I discovered how much I could improve my life and my photography spending time and working with dogs.
Because it's not as easy as it seems, I decided to share all my knowledge with photography workshops all over the World. I turned my hobby and passion into a career and I believe it is my purpose in life to teach others and to try and help dogs in need along the way.
I want the people that attend my workshops to understand how big is the world behind dog photography, especially in action and how rewarding it in regards to their life and their own job.
Every photo is a different story and I always put all my energy into every shooting and in editing to portray the dog as the best dog ever. I want all the people that will see the photo, to admire how amazing the dog is.
I spend a lot of time thinking and doing new photography projects and travelling a lot.
I also won several awards in big International photography contests like Oasis or SIPA and I had many publications on media, magazines, newspapers all over the World.
