My Leica equipment shot for my Street Photography Leica Camera Blog feature. You can sport one of my Leica SL twins I use for my commercial photography, and two Leica M (Monochrom and M10) and the Leica Q for Street Photography.
P.s: The pipe is an Italian Savinelli.
I'm proud to announce that today I became Elinchrom ambassador. After many years of work with this lighting system I'm honored to begin a direct collaboration with Elinchrom.
Many thanks to Apromastore for all the bright support.
We are glad to announce that we are featured in the June 2013 issue of the Hasselblad Spotlight. I've been so lucky to be one of the first photographer shooting with the new H5D camera in Italy. You will find a backstage video shooting two new Clownville images with the new H5D and a series of portraits made with the new camera.
Many thanks to Andrea Mariani the Italian Hasselblad Sales Manager and to Maxi Schumacher Hasselblad worldwide Corporate Communication & Public Relations Manager.

I receive several emails every months asking about my setup so I decided to post a little compendium with some information on my gear. As you can see here we have my little Soho (small office / home office). When I’m not shooting I spend several hours every day in this room
I mainly do my post production on a Window 7 64 bit pc. A quad core i7 with 32 gbyte of Ram and a GTX 580 graphic card. Several terabytes of raid hard drives and two SSD all around the office. I have a second backup of the most important files in another secure location.
I do all my post production and 3D work using a Wacom Cintiq 21UX. I have a second monitor (a 40″ LED TV) for a bigger visual (..and videogames!).
I’m working with the Adobe Creative Cloud environment (Photoshop, Lightroom, Premiere, After Effect and so on..).
For 3D Renderings I just chose Luxology Modo 601 and ZBrush, but I’m still in the beginning so it's training time. I’m also learning to use Blender 3D.
My laptop is a 13″ MacbookPro with 8 Gbyte of Ram with which i use a Wacom Intuos 5 M tablet.
The complete Adobe Suite is also on the Mac, along with Motion and Final Cut X.
I work mainly with Canon Cameras. I own a 5D Mark III and a 5D Mark II. Several Canon prime and zoom lenses and few Manual focus Nikon lenses that I use for video.
Two Elinchrom quadra RX portable sets (4 heads), 5 little led lights panel and 4 big studio strobes are my studio and location light equipment.
I also use a Fuji X100 that I take with me when I take a walk to shoot some street photography.
As you can notice I’m a videogame / Scifi Movie / Comic addicted. All around the office you can see an Xbox360, PS3, PS2, PS Vita, Wii, Gamecube, 3DS and many more… (also a lot of retrocomputers but they are in the Studio garage).
Today Curiosity landed on Mars. It has been an incredible achievement for NASA and all Humanity. Here we have some of the first pictures from the Red Planet. Information about the Rover main cameras can be found here: http://msl-scicorner.jpl.nasa.gov/Instruments/Mastcam/

Finally has arrived. Thanks to the help of Thierry and Fabrizio from Sabatini distributor I was able to put my hands on my new Canon 5D MKIII. The Camera looks really good and it plays even better. From the first tests I made, shooting some simple pics, the performance at high iso are really good.
I also love the beautiful 3.2-inch 1,040,000 pixel LCD display and the new magnesium body.
The buttons are also well placed and the ergonomy is good.
Another great improvement is the autofocus. Finally the Mark III focuses VERY fast. I really had major problems with the MK II in this area when was dark or the subject was moving fast.
Installed Cinestyle and it works fine also with the MK III. The videos at 6400 iso looks nothing less than stunning.
I was able to prove that the Rolling shutter issue has been significantly minimized.
I’ll make some more specific tests in the next day. Probably I will also use it for an assignment on Thursday and share some more feelings about it.
I’ve been shooting with the X100 for several months and it became my favourite street photography camera. Few weeks ago I used it in a Masterfile stock production and gave it to the models to simulate a couple playing around. At a certain point the male model told me he has some difficulties to focus correctly the girl in front of him. I had the same problems in the beginning using this camera and I thought that may be useful to share few simple tips I found on Steve Huff Blog on how to increase your X100 experience.
