Who is a travel blogger?
A travel blogger is a content creator: a creator of travel content that brings its audience, virtually, with them on social media and in the blog. For me, this work has become a real mission: to travel from home and inspire for the next trip.
What do you use to take your photos? Camera or smartphone?
Both. Usually, when I travel, I always have a camera with me. For quick photos to share in the stories, however, I prefer to use the phone. For sea or “dynamic” trips I also use the drone to make breathtaking and viral shots.
What work is behind a photo?
Much more than you might think. Behind a shot there is the creation of a special moment to photograph and tell. Often they do a lot before they manage to get the right one. After selecting the best shot to publish, we move on to the editing phase, I use professional software: lightroom.
Your place of you heart is …
Kenya. it was a crazy journey immersed in poverty. And then Egypt, which I fell in love with from the first moment. And of course Puglia, my beautiful region.
Your future plans?
I have so many plans in my mind. I’d like to collaborate more and more with tourism bodies to promote the local traditions of each place.
And then I would like to go to Australia, one of the countries, despite the difficulties it is experiencing today after the numerous fires that are devastating it, which fascinates me a lot.
Thanks Michelangelo for the time you have dedicated to us and good luck for the future.
