Welcome to “My Wild Path”.

First of all, I would like to thank you for visiting my website and exploring my photography world. I’m really happy to share my work with you. I would also like to thank all the people that got in touch with me, that are constantly following me on the social networks and are supporting me. It really means a lot to me and I met many nice people so far!

This is a new space where I can write a bit more about myself, but not only that. I will write about photography of course, about my latest work (there are some interesting things coming up in the upcoming new year!), about the wonderful places in the world I had the chance to visit, but the main purpose of this blog is something different. I would like to inspire people. Inspire people to find themselves in nature. Inspire them to have a new perspective, a different view of the environment that surrounds us. Make them understand that a tree is not just a tree, an animal is not only something that lives apart from our civilized society or that you can see in the zoo of your town, but every single element is part of a huge ecosystem which is fundamental for every human being’s life and living creature of the Earth. And of course, inspire them to respect and protect all of this. How am I supposed to do that? Well, the answer is all in the title!

“My Wild Path”. I chose this title because I will tell you about “my own path to the wild”. This is my story, this is how I changed myself in time and got shaped by nature. This is how I reached the knowledge that now I have on how important every single element of our planet is. This is my path, but it can be the path of everyone. And honestly, I really hope that many people who read my words and see my photos will be motivated to follow their own way in the same direction. And here comes the subtitle, “A Journey Through Wilderness”. Yes, this means that it’s not only “my journey”, it’s the journey of everyone. It’s a journey that brings you to a new level of awareness, it elevates you somehow. You will learn to appreciate all the little things in life that looks like they’re hidden to you right now, but they are actually all around you every time. And I really invite everyone out there to follow my example. You will find a unique sense of happiness just being surrounded by all of this. I assure you won’t regret!

We’re all so busy with our lives, our daily routines, living every day in a rush,  that we often forget all the beautiful things we can find everywhere around us. Maybe you’re living in a big chaotic city and you’re stuck in the urban jungle, but you don’t know that just half an hour from your home you can find a completely different world, like a beautiful green forest rich of wildlife. Or maybe you don’t know that your town has some big parks that are actually populated by deer, foxes, squirrels and other animals. Yes, because you don’t need to travel the world, nature is everywhere around us. Well, this is my invitation. Go and explore, immerse yourself into nature and live every single moment to the fullest, try to absorb all its essence and you will discover a joy that is really invaluable. Go out of your comfort zone and spend some time in the wild, with nothing around you but nature. You will discover the true essence of life, and you will be surprised by knowing that you don’t need anything, except feeling alive. To learn how I started to follow this wild path, you need to know more about me, but this is a story I will tell you another time..
