Andrea was born and bred in Milan, Italy. Photography is more than a simple hobby for him.
He started in 2006 by using a compact digital camera and soon switched to a digital reflex camera, a Canon EOS 450D. In 2011 he got a Canon EOS 7D, bought from Milo, a close friend and a great photographer. After some years by practicing on APS-C (crop sensor), he switched to a Canon EOS 5D with a full frame 35mm sensor.
In parallel to digital photography, Andrea had the opportunity to study and learn basic concepts of film photography, by practicing on different film cameras and films (35mm mainly), both in color or black and white.
In addition, he started a project on aphotomaniac.tumblr.com in December 2009, with the aim to select and post just some shots worthy of being shown.
