Alfonso Abbatiello

I was born in Benevento in 1988. I first met photography when I was 13 and my father give me my first reflex as a gift, a Minolta SRT100. Thanks to his rough teachings I started feeling the emotion of analogic photography.
I embraced digital only in 2010, buying a Nikon. I always have my reflex with me, especially when I go for long hikes with my friends. My hometown is surrounded by beautiful monutains, and I love nature.

I've always been fascinated by portraits of women, whether it's a sculpture, a painting or a photograph. I learned by myself, using my relatives as subjects, how to handle light and shadow. Then I got a gear specifically for Portrait Photography. Gaining experience I went on to improve my post-production technique, learning from my mistakes.

I consider myself an amateur, not a professional. I see photography as a part of me, a companion that always comes along, making the daily routine enjoyable.
