Name: Mattia Bonavida
City: Lake Garda, Italy
Camera: A full frame body, a Nikon D800E
Main photographic subject: My favourite subjects are mainly landscapes and nature shots, but I like also to take some portrait or sport photography, I’m always looking for new photographic fields to explore.
Style: I try to use colours to create emotions in each of my shot. I also love to put a human figure inside my pictures to give a sense of contrast between the environment and the person in the foreground.
Favorite destinations: At the moment I would like so much to visit Faroe Islands, because it’s a remote place with a lot of possibilities to catch awesome landscape in an untouched scenario.
Influences: I followed some great photographers like Max Rive, that was and it’s one of the most awesome landscape photographers, I was impressed by the use of colours in every shot and obviously the amazing location where he was taking his photos.
