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

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.
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
