Simone Miotto



I was born in Piedmont, in Italy in 1989. I’ve always loved nature and particularly alpine environment, this love soon developed into enjoying taking photographs of natural landscapes. I began taking pictures in some ways for fun, until I bought my first camera body, a small Nikon D40x, and started learning the first technical core issues of photography. After the beginning period of emphasis, in which every subject was a good one to be photographed, I realized that the most interesting to me was just natural landscape, which is still the genre I like best, even though I don’t despise the others such as life portrait or naturalistic photography, which I’d like to approach soon. I adore taking pictures at dawn and at dusk, where the light is able to emphasize best the landscape I want to immortalize. My way of photographing is a continuing effort to improve, and I’m aware of how much there still is to discover and learn. _______________________________________________________ Nasco a Giaveno (TO), un piccolo paese inserito in fondo alla Val Sangone, nel 1989. Ho sempre amato la natura e in particolar modo l'ambiente alpino, questo amore si è presto tramutato nel piacere di fotografare paesaggi naturali. Ho iniziato a scattare quasi per gioco finchè, comprando il mio primo corpo macchina, una piccola nikon d40x, ho cominciato a tentare di impare i primi rudimenti tecnici della fotografia. Dopo un periodo di enfasi, dove qualsiasi soggetto era buono per essere fotografato, mi sono reso conto che ad interessarmi in particolar modo era proprio la fotografia di paesaggio, tuttora rimane il genere che prediligo senza però disdegnare altri generi come il ritratto di vita o la fotografia naturalistica a cui vorrei avvicinarmi presto. Adoro fotografare all'alba e al tramonto dove la luce è in grado di enfatizzare al meglio il paesaggio che si vuole immortalare. Nel mio fotografare vi è il continuo tentativo di migliorarsi, conscio che via sia ancora molto da scoprire ed imparare.

Touch of light - A day in the field

I was born in Piedmont, Italy in 1989. I’ve always loved nature and particularly alpine environment, this love soon became enjoying in taking photographs of natural landscapes.

Through my images I want to show the beauty of the Alps and the magical moments that nature can show us. With my photographs I want to give a little warning to those who believe in protecting natural environment. Through my work I hope to promote this kind of environment to those who doesn’t know it yet , and also photos are an invitation to follow the mountain trails in search of intense moments that nature can give us.

“Touch of Light” was born during a photographic trip to the Valle of Cerce (French Alps) precisely on the lake Cerces. I discovered this location with a friend and we immediately realized that we could take some interesting pictures there, so we decided to go there for taking some pictures. Before going to the Lake Cerces, we studied a few days the location and the organization.

We left home i ...
