"I am originally from Verona and since I was 6 I have always had the dream of seeing the Northern Lights in Lapland. Now at the age of 29 I live that dream every night that I am out hunting for the Northern Lights, bringing people to see it for the first time. And every time it's like the first for me because every time it's a different show.
I have been living in Lapland for 5 years now, after finishing my degree in environmental engineering.
When I moved to Lapland I felt the need to immortalize these beautiful landscapes and above all the Northern Lights and the night sky and so I started learning to photograph one of the most beautiful phenomena in the world: the Northern Lights.
And from the beginning I've always used SIGMA lenses to capture the night sky and the Northern Lights."
- The one lens that’s pretty much stuck on my camera all the time. So versatile for whatever kind of work that is on front of me and always delivers the result I’m after.
Sharp, robust and that silky smooth zoom (that comes with every product from SIGMA).
I’m a big fan of equipment that feels and look like they are for “real”. The weight and quality of this one is so trustworthy. As I said, I use this one for pretty much everything - but I can highly recommend this one for skiing and more fun portraits.
- This is nothing else than a BEAST. If you would look up “building quality” in a dictionary, I’m pretty sure there would be a picture of this 85mm.
The glass elements are so well put together that the bokeh and softness that comes to life when you’re down on 1.4 is incomparable and something I just love to use from time to time.
Works perfect in every condition out there, but of course, portraits is the thing with this one. I do also use it for a lot of still life photos, since the sharpness all over the image when you bump it up a few steps is everything.
- Ultimate sports photography lens. I use this one for pretty much everything else that the 24-70mm can’t “reach” out when shooting skiing and other action sports. The compact size and weight for this kind of zoom and F2.8 amazes me every time. So easy to carry with you in the backpack all the time. The F2.8 also makes it so smooth to isolate an object in a good way, all over the focal length. The auto focus works so fast and surely helps you even more to capture the right moment, when shooting with continuous focus.
I would call this trio the ultimate setup for every different kind of adventure or production there is. The golden trio!
