Photography has always been one of my passions. I collect, repair, and sometimes build film cameras.

I shoot both digital and films. When I use films, my favorite formats are:
35mm, 120 (both in 6×6 and in 6×4.5 formats), 4×5, Instant (Instax Mini, Wide, Square – Polaroid 600, SX70).
Some of the cameras I like most to shoot with are:
- Agfa Isolette II
- Belomo Agat 18K
- KMZ Moskva 5
- Lubitel 166 Universal
- Nikon FM, Nikon FA, Nikon FG 20, Nikon F601, Nikon F70, Nikon F801, Nikon F90X
- Minolta SR-T 101, Minolta XD-7, Minolta X-700, Minolta Dynax 7
- Olympus Pen, Olympus Om-1

I develop and print most of my own films, at home.

One of my past projects was the attempt to create a camera with interchangeable film and digital backs. The project is actually on hold, waiting for proper financing.
I always liked this building on the Embankment of the final part of Water of Leith.
I took this photo using a pinhole lens. I am quite satisfied with the result, and yiu, how do you like it?

A stormy day in Nuremberg
This photo is a Pinhole Lens Test, using the Scottish Winter Sunset Light, which is amazingly good. Shot with a Nikon FM camera, with Kodak Gold 200 film, then home developed and digitally scanned by me.
A 1971 Zenit-E I have cleaned, lubricated, and adjusted, happy to take some nice photos again. Agfa 100 APX film, home developed and digitally scanned by me.
Nuremberg calling Moon, over. Moon, do you copy?
I love skies, sunsets, and cityscapes, so…
After performing a 3 hours full CLA (Cleaning, Lubricating, and Adjusting) this Half-Frame Agfa Parat-I (1965-ish) is now doing again what it is supposed to do, taking great shots. I used an expired Agfa 100 APX film, developed at home and then digitally scanned. https://www.instagram.com/reel/CiXChkqgcKf/?igshid=MDJmNzVkMjY=
I love weird points of view!
I was immediately impressed by the boldness of this tree, standing tall just in the middle of the road. I had to take a photo!
Cats always come to me (well, every other animal does, to be honest … I should be a sort of magnet for them). This one offered himself as my model for the session.
Did I ever tell you that I love Scotland and I still miss it every day?
I am fascinated by the way light plays with darkness …
I have always loved the way shadows play with light, and Scotland, especially in winter, offers a wide variety of opportunities to see it.
The church was built, with the adjacent cloister, between 1454 and 1472. The corpse of St. Bernardino da Siena is guarded inside the church in a mausoleum and it was declared a Basilica Minor in May 1946 by Pope Pius XII. The huge earthquake that struck L’Aquila in April 2009 seriously damaged the apse and the bell…
These are Huginn and Muninn, the oldest crows of their murder. They introduced us to all the members of their family and their murder. They come every day to meet us and sit in front of the window of our attic, often bringing us some gifts they find and collect during their errands. I love…
I almost forgot how good is petrichor …
Today is 2022 World Photography Day. We, lovers of photography, celebrate today the art, language, craft, science, and history of photography.
