Welcome to my blog. Here I will post photographs of my travels, news about my current projects, post-processing articles, photography workshops and photography tips. I hope this blog gives me the opportunity to share my photography and travel passions and what I have learnt in this journey in the last 20 years.

║ Ciao Ciao Australia

Today I'm leaving Australia for a long while to continue travelling and carrying on with my impossible project of photographing the world. I should feel excited about taking off but I am actually feeling a bit sad about leaving this beautiful country.

This will probably be the most challenging trip ever as I am taking my wife and my two young kids (Rafa and Leo) to South America, a continent I am just starting to explore. I hope that this adventure will give them the opportunity to improve their Spanish.

But we will come back! I have  been living here for five and a half years and I love this country, its people, its landscapes and its culture. I have recently become an Australian citizen and I am very proud of it. People have been very kind and I have had the pleasure of making great friends and working with very good people. In terms of landscapes, Australia is a photographer's paradise and although I have strived to see it all in the last 5 years, there are still so many places here to explore !

I am happy to leave behind a couple of books about Australia, one about Karijini in Western Australia and the second one about Sydney's Rock Pools. I have greatly enjoyed working on those two projects and I have already embarked on a new project Australia RGB which will be three volumes (Red, Green and Blue) with images of Australia.

On my way to Spain I will first stop in Hawaii, then the Rockies in Canada, Alaska and will cross through Yellowstone and will head down to Utah. I'm very excited to re-visit these places with new equipment... and oh yes...we will also go to Disneyland  ! (not too excited about that ..)

In September we head off to Spain and from there we will probably fly to Buenos Aires. From BA, there is no fixed itinerary, just a few ideas. That's the plan, very exciting but mixed feelings !

Thanks to everyone I have had the pleasure to meet and work with in Australia. Keep in touch and if you have any questions, please send me an email and I will respond as soon as I can.

Ciao Ciao Australia
