A wide and fine artistic experience about our culture and heritage

The history here is starting from the traces of Celts and the Roman remains, continue in sublime beauty and stories until today. 
My itineraries are planned following the concept of deep and interesting exploration of the area. It means not only beautiful famous villas on the lake-side (most of them are private and there is always an entrance fee).
With me, you can explore more. To admire unknown landscapes, hidden villages and to see unusual views while being photographed.

How does it look like?  
During the Half-Day Service, we have to opportunity to explore local culture and history following the lakeside streets, while using my car. Additionally, for the best lake views and a perfect „lake experience“ you can as well book a water taxi. 
The Full Day Service will allow us even more: reaching amazing and less known mountains with their very typical villages and ruins, that are not recognizable from the lake shore.
Some spots are even almost forgotten, but I can lead you there allowing you to explore them enjoyably.

In case of rain

That said, I am only a photographer but I have one superpower.
With the only challenge to follow my availability, I offer a “Weather Insurance”
, so we can try shift the day in case of rain.
NB this is possible only if I’m free from other photography services, but please notice that the minimum stay to scout the lake is four days, and I suggest to book the photoshoot on the first one or at least on the second.

Lake Como can be considered great in all kinds of weather, this depends on the right concept given to the storytelling plan, but not everyone is a fan of rain.

The art of storytelling

With my method, wandering in little streets around the lake or its steep meadows could become a creative and unconventional mood, but during a taxi boat ride every raindrop is not welcome.
From all the seasons, everybody finds here different seasons suitable to explore and get a visual record in the form of photo service.

This all can be happening, and during that, you will obtain the finest storytelling about you and your love in a wonderful setting of this spectacular place.
Yes, it is correct. You are exploring beautiful places and will get photos capturing you in breathtaking locations.

Just you and the lake

Of course, I am also available for taking storytelling photography and portraits to singles.
Here it is the wonderful Joycie. I am honoured to be her personal photographer in Italy. In the frontispiece image you can see her posing at the ‘mythological’ George Clooney’s villa l’Oleandra.
We also took photoshoots in, Milan, Venice and the Dolomites.

We got the photos, they look beautiful!! I'll write a review as soon I have a time later today!
Thank you so much for being part of this special moment once again! We were very happy with the proposal and how everything went, thank you so much much for your advices and help!

I chose Lake Como because that destination we were more excited about! We had a lot of expectations about Como, was the place we couldn't stop taking about before the trip!
My second option was Venice at the beginning but due to the beauty of the villages there and they looked perfect for a proposal!

Can you believe this is Lake Como?

Indeed, here we are.
Lake Como has a prehistoric heritage, then Rhaetians, Celts, Romans, the Christian Era.
Our lake is not only a villa with a garden, or a village full of touristic shops but everything is closed during the cold season.
We can plan together a full emotional experience meeting a past starting 2500 years ago, because I am a local, and I know where to take the best pictures in the most beautiful, untouched, historical places.
