About me

My name is Federico and I am an Italian Marine Biologist, travelling the world to follow my passion and develop my career.  Thanks to it, I lived and worked in Spain, Indonesia, Malta,  China, Iceland and  Thailand.  After a brief experience as teacher of science in Italy, I am now back in Iceland, working with whales. 


Whale Watching guide and PADI DiveMaster, hopefully one day I'll own a new waterproof case to bring again my camera underwater. 


I hope you will enjoy my pics.  If you have any suggestions, please feel free to contact me and tell me your opinion! 






I am using a Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, a DSLR camera with a Dual Pixel CMOS AF, 30.4 MP, FF sensor.


As regards lenses, I am working with Canon 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6  L IS II USM  and Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 L USM III, this last one comes along with ND filter.
