My image on the cover of the Remembering Lions book
After the amazing success of the Remembering Elephants book, english photographer Margot Raggett launched the second book in the series, featuing photographs about Rhinoceroses from some of the world's top photographers.
Some of my black and white images of African wildlife are featured in a beautiful portfolio on the Africa Geographic magazine’s website.

I am happy to be back in London for two more presentations of the book Light and Dust.
Remembering Elephants is a wonderful charity photographic book on African Elephants featuring images from 65 of the world’s best wildlife photographers. Included are some of my heroes and inspirations, such as Jonathan and Angela Scott, Frans Lanting, Art Wolfe, Michel Denis-huot, and many others. All the profits from the sale of the book will be donated to Born Free Foundation to support projects on Elephant conservation. The launch of the book was accompanied by an exhibition of all the images in the book and an evening at the Royal Geographical Society in London. From an idea of wildlife photographer and PR expert Margot Raggett, this is an unprecedented book and is definitely worth owning if you are passionate about elephants. I am particularly proud to have my “Elephant Portrait in last light” image featured on the cover, and my “Portrait of Tim” image inside.
An extensive interview with me is featured in the prestigious magazine Nikon Owners, Issue 55, October 2016.
I am honored that some of my images are included in the BBC Books’ title “PLANET EARTH II”, accompanying the documentary by the same name.
While guiding guests on safari I was particularly proud to find out that Art Wolfe, one of the best and most acclaimed wildlife and travel photographers in the world, reviewed and commented about my book Light and Dust on his blog in the section “From Art’s bookshelf”. “…His book is a testament to what great photographers can do when they have a true passion and focus on a particular part of the world”.

On October 16th 2015 at 9.00pm at Teatro San Faustino, Sarezzo (BS) for an evening of images and tales from the African bush. The event is organized by the photographic club NaturaLife – fotoperpassione. We’ll see many images and we will go in depth of some shots to understand how they have been taken from the field to the post-processing phase. It will also be possible to purchase a signed copy of my book Light and Dust.
I am proud to have been invited to join thirteen other Italian nature photographers in the wonderful photography blog Genius Loci. The main idea behind the blog is to show fantastic and creative imagery of nature from the photographers’ home area. One new, never before seen image, is posted daily by one of the photographers in turns. Images are accompanied by beautiful text and stories which provide interesting background to the image and to the natural history of the species shown. Unfortunately texts are only in Italian. My published images, all previously unreleased from the wilderness of Eastern Africa, can be found here.
I am honored that some of my images are included in the new BBC Books’ title “LIFE STORY”, accompanying the documentary by the same name. My “Lion Family Portrait” is among the images included in the book. This is a wonderful book, which also includes images by such great photographers as Stefano Unterthiner and Anup Shah. The book and blu-ray of the documentary can be ordered here.
After a long and busy safari season I am happy to present two calendars that are coming out for 2014 which feature my wildlife images.
I recently returned to Kenya after my trip to China to promote Elephants’ awareness and conservation. We held 3 exhibitions and lectures in the main banks of China in the coastal city of Qingdao: Bank of China, China Construction Bank and China Merchants’ Bank. We also held lectures at the main universities in Qingdao, Ocean University and Qingdao University.
