A little about me
After moving from Italy to the San Francisco Bay Area more than 15 years ago, I soon discovered my love for photography. I started in the digital photography world with a point-and-shoot and gradually evolved my skills and expertise. In 2008 I bought my first DSLR, a Nikon D50, and in 2009 I started this blog. As I began to share my photographs with the larger audience of the Internet, it led me to foreign publishing and local art exhibits, and projected me into photography as a full time profession.
I like traveling (who doesn’t?). Whenever I can, I take my camera with me, and try to take home a little special memory from the places I visit. Lately I have been experimenting also with video footage, but for now, still photography is where I am most comfortable.
Recently, I started my own business as a commercial photographer, and you can learn more about what I do, on my website salvoventura.com.
A photograph perpetuates a moment forever, allowing us to fully experience and savor that moment, and its emotions. A photograph allows us to revisit what was, what is, and could have been.
Every picture is a story in the happening, and a memory to be told.
I have traveled broadly in USA, Europe, South America and Asia, taking my camera with me, and bringing back countless memories. You can find these trips documented in my travel posts. Many of the images are also for sale on my store.
