Welcome to my photography website! I am Giuseppe Petricca, an American/Italian who is currently living in Stornoway, Outer Hebrides, in the magical country of Scotland.
My actual occupation is completing my final year of Engineering College Degree, and, in between the exams and assignments, my hobbies vary from astronomy to meteorology, from computer tech to, naturally, photography.
During my initial years, my interests in astronomical and meteorological observations made me approach the field of photography, which grew and grew exponentially with the passing of time.
My initial camera was my father's Russian Zenith-E, that continues to work exceptionally well even now, while my first actual digital camera was a 4MP Kodak DX6490.
After that, I bought a nice compact one which gave me great satisfaction: a Canon Powershot A530, and later, a Nikon Coolpix P90 Bridge, which was a turning point, with my first dip into manual mode.
Currently, I work with a Canon EOS 700D reflex camera, which I got in 2015 for the eclipse of the Sun visible from the Isle of Skye. I am now expanding my lens and photography equipment, piece by piece.
For many of the pictures that you will see on this website, I have to admit that I was 'in the right place at the right time' (my personal definition of good photography). This, together with my self-teaching, passion, and patience, reflects my basic characteristics as a photographer.
All this is enhanced by the fact that I love traveling when I can, and I always like to see new places, guaranteeing an ever-changing array of subjects, panoramas, lights and shadows, and situations when the photographer has to decide every setting in a couple of seconds.
Thank you for the time you took in reading this, and I hope you like my work.
If you want to, share it with whomever you wish, online and not.
