Welcome to our blog!

Francesco Emanuele Carucci photography
We are lucky enough to live in and travel for our photography to some of the world’s most picturesque and interesting places like Californian coast of the Pacific Ocean, volcanic peaks of the Hawaii islands, endless waterfalls of Iceland, breathtaking San Francisco with its “ups and downs”, good old Italy with antique cityscapes and “pregnant” vineyards. Through our photography blog we would like to share with you our experience of these places and transfer what we felt while looking at the stunning views that are captured in our images.

In many remote places we have visited we were held in surprise by the human presence we discovered.  In the era when human intervention in nature often leads to negative consequences, we have found a number of places where it blends into it, complies with its rules and even guards it. The equilibrium between the two, nature and humans, is a shared theme of our photography and is represented by images like “The House Built by the Sun” featuring an observatory peacefully nested on top of the Haleakala volcano in Maui; or “Hohenschwangau Castle” planted in the Bavarian Alps harmonizing with the overall landscape rather than disrupting it; or “Fishing in Maui” where two fishermen pull their nets in silent agreement as the calm Ocean sings a lullaby to the sleepy nature…

As we strive to convey the feelings, photography to us is a fusion of art and technology with both of them being equally important for a great image. That is why we do out best to be artistically evocative as well as technically brilliant! We achieve this ever moving goal by constantly upgrading our photography equipment to the latest technology, improving the tools and techniques, and taking extra care while editing the images during post processing. On the blog we also share the knowledge that we gather during this never ending learning process and hope that you join us in our journey!
