frequently asked questions

 

what photo gear do you use?

I use a Nikon D700 with a 50mm f1.4 and, at times, a macro 105mm f2.8. I also own a Fuji X100T, which I use for outdoor and travel images, and for shooting short videos. I only shoot in natural light.

I AM GOING TO VENICE. Do you have any restaurant recommendations?

Check out my Venice Food Guide, where I list some of my favourite places to eat, drink and buy food in Venice. For custom suggestions, please get in touch. I’d love to help you design the perfect Venetian food experience through a tailored itinerary or a private tour.

 

 

How do you edit your images?

I use Adobe Lightroom to edit all my images. I sometimes use Adobe Photoshop, too, though only for minor retouches. I don't use filters but I have built a range of presets that suit my style and visual taste.


can i send you my product in exchange for an article or a review?

I don't write articles or reviews in exchange for product. However, if you think your product or service would be a good match for my readership and the style of this site, feel free to submit it via email. If it makes a good fit, I'll be happy to discuss a few partnership options.


DO YOU host ANY WORKSHOPS?

Check my events page for news on all upcoming talks, workshops, and retreats I am taking part to. I haven’t hosted a retreat myself as of yet, but it’s something I plan to work on in the near future. For now, I do private cooking, styling and photography mentoring sessions for one or a small group. Please drop me a line if you’re interested.
