About me
I am a freelance photographer and a journalist from Italy.

Like Doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, I have a double personality: I'm a researcher working in an high technology research centre in everyday life, but the other person that lives inside me is exactly on the opposite position: no science, just art! "Mr. Hyde Belverde" is a reporter and a journalist and he writes for several Italian newspapers and magazines. He loves telling the tales of the Island of Sicily, its people and traditions. Reportage, portraits and nudes are the genres he loves the most.

Approach
I like to keep my approach quite simple and I love natural light. I don't like to work quickly during my session. About portraiture I love to be on good terms with the subject by spending a lot of time speaking with people before take pictures. 
I aim to be very close to the subject and I often use a wide lens. I generally work alone, and with reduced equipment with me, in order to go unnoticed for the street and take the subject spontaneously. 

What's in my Bag?
In the last years I worked with several digital DSLR from different brands.
Now I'm working with a Fujifilm X-T2 with two prime lens: XF18mm and XF35mm. Less is more.
I also shot with an Yashica Mat 124G medium format film camera for personal/fine-art works only.
