Hello mates, I'm happy to announce a new collaboration with a travel community followed by more than 2 million users per month, Travel365.it. Recently I was contacted by their editor and they selected a photo of mine that I took in Milan and that has been published in the following article on their website, "Cosa vedere a Milano" (what to see in Milan) It's always a pleasure to have my works featured somewhere else. Stay tuned for more features, cheers, Sabino
Passeggiare di sera a Dicembre, in Lussemburgo, con il freddo che sferza le mani e la faccia, non è sicuramente cosa semplice ma, con una Leica SL in borsa, è sicuramente una buona occasione per provare a catturare l'atmosfera natalizia fatta di luci, suoni e baite in legno dei caratteristici mercatini di Natale. Ed ecco qui qualche scatto fatto con l'ottimo Leica Vario-Elmarit-SL 24–90 f/2.8–4 ASPH, una lente importante per dimensioni, ma dalla qualità decisamente alta, anche in condizioni di scarsa luce.

Hooray! My picture has been favourited by the editors of the Leica Fotografie International and ranked among the very best photographs in the Leica Master Shots collection! So proud about it!

I'm so happy about it, as it is also
Hello mates, are you lovers of street photography as I do? Then you should probably already know the project "Life is Street" a collective of street photographers from all over the world. I've discovered it on Instagram a long time ago and has always been one of my favourite feeds to follow, so full of inspiration and great photos.
Last week I was in London for a pleasure trip with my sister and my nephew who had never been in the city before. Of course, it's been a touristic stay, visiting the classic sightseeing, including the famous Madame Tussauds, where the waxworks of famous and historic people and also popular film character are exposed. I was not planning to do serious photography there, I mean, with my Leica Q, but only souvenirs snaps with the iphone. But, wait a moment...
Once in, I realized that this place could be a good gym where to train a kind of street photography, where the subjects, does'nt move at all!!And having my nephew and my sister role playing with the statues, well, I realised I could make some nice photos.
Finally, It is time to be on the road again, or, in this case, on the rails... Yes, indeed, this time I've decided to start my journey at a much slower pace. because I want to enjoy and feel it.
When and how the idea was bornBefore getting on board for my next long distance trip (I'll tell you where soon...), I have few days free and I need to reach my hometown, Mola di Bari, in the south of Italy. Of course, by instinct, the first thing I would do is to go to Ryanair website and book a direct flight that in only 2 hours will bring me home.
Today I want to share with you a new book I just received, a true inspirational body of work considered the "bible" of street photography. The book, quite heavy and big, is produced by my favourite photographer Joel Meyerowitz together with Colin Westerbeck, and explores the development and history of the genre through the medium's masters--Strand, Atget, Stieglitz, Cartier-Bresson, Lartigue, Kertész, Walker Evans, Brassaï, Diane Arbus, Robert Frank, Helen Levitt, Garry Winogrand, Lee Friedlander, and many others.
Love is in the air, so Happy Valentine's day, folks! Today I'm sharing with you a cool animation in Stop Motion I've created for the company I work with, FANUC Europe, in Luxembourg, with the help of my wonderful colleagues. How it is made - Behind the scenes This is for me the first time I create something with this technique, stop motion, but I always loved to give it a try as. I find it very fresh and playful, but very effective if you want to spread out a simple message. Basically is very
Hello there, how much do you like walking on a cold, wet, soft snow? Well, I have to admit, I'not a fan of it, I'd rather prefer the deep blue colour of a wavy sea, but it's winter time, and I live in Luxembourg. Nothing more to add
Hello folks, today I want to show you a set of 15 new photos I took a few weeks ago, in Paris. I had few hours before getting the train back to Luxembourg and what's better than an intense session of candid street photography? Even when I'm on a business trip I always carry my Leica SL and the Summicron M 28mm f2 ASPH, as they fit well in my ONA bag and they are not so heavy and bulky. And you know, Paris is wonderful street photographer playground that can give you some
