I took this photo from an hot air balloon flying over the countryside around Jaipur
Iâ€™m a non professional photographer keen on landscape, architecture and travel photography. I have a degree in mechanical engineering. My passion for photography began at my ninth birthday when I received a gift from my grandmother a simple but beautiful Kodak Retinette and then I began experimenting by myself with apertures, shutter speeds and so on. Since then I have continued to take pictures although during the university studies as well as many very challenging work periods had a negative impact on my photographic work. In the last ten years I started to take pictures with some assiduity and I participate with great satisfaction to some trips organized by the Nikon School Travel. At the time I published on the site " Blurb " 31 photographic books of my trips. 2016 - Siena International photo Award - Awarded with "Remarkable artwork" in architecture category 2017 - International Color Awards - Awarded with "Honorable Mention" in aerial category and 9 nominations in Abstract, architecture, nature and portrait categories 2017 - Fine Art Photography Awards - Awarded with 6 nominations in abstract, architecture, fine art, nature and open theme (sport) 2017 â€“ Prix de la Photographie â€“ Paris - Awarded with 3 â€œHonorable Mentionâ€ in architecture, children and nature 2017 â€“ Moscow International Foto Awards â€“ Awarded with: Gold in Nature-Aerial, Silver in Nature-Trees, Bronze in Architecture-Buildings, Honorable Mention in Nature-Sunset and Nature-Landscapes..
