Roberto De Micheli Photography
Ciao! And thanks for passing by!
My name is Roberto De Micheli, I am Italian, born in Cremona in 1969. I currently live and work in New York after more than 10 years in London.
My passion for photography started late in my life.
Dad is a keen film photographer, but I have inherited his hobby just in 2001, when he lent me his first digital compact camera.
I have always worked in the IT sector and I guess that a thing which is essentially a small computer with a sensor and a lens just clicked with me!
Soon I decided to buy my own toy and then it has been an escalation till summer 2005, when I finally made the jump to the wonderful and expensive world of digital SLR (Single Lens Reflex) cameras.
Since then I have gone through 5 DSLR bodies and a number of lenses. In summer 2006 I got the Canon 5D, which was my third DSLR camera.
The 5D has made my hobby take a more serious turn...
I have started selling the printing rights of some of my photos to photo sharing websites, random prints on my own and digital rights to other web sites.
This web site is my first step on my own in the photographic arena! :)
My favourite subjects are, in order of preference:
People, wildlife (especially big cats, the bigger the better), macro (especially butterflies) and landscapes.
I also like cityscapes and everything that tickles my fancy :)
I love colours and light, the detail on the wing of a butterfly and the vastness of the view from a mountain.
I can wait for hours to catch a perfect sunset, or I can leave my hiking companions to chase a ray of sunlight stabbing through the clouds.
Recently I have been focussing more and more on fashion editorial photography.
All of my photos on this web site have been taken with Canon DSLR cameras, such as Canon 5D, Canon 5D mkII and, most recently, Canon 1D X
All of my photos on this web site have been post-processed with Adobe Photoshop (currently I use Photoshop CC and Lightroom 5).
Please refer to the Orders page for pricing and details on ordering prints and / or buying the digital rights of my photos.
Please leave a message on my photos if you like them, even if you are not going to buy them! :)
Contact me via email for any question.
