I'm Riccardo

It's nice to meet you

Born in Italy, my love affair with the African wilderness started from an early age, as I had the opportunity to grow up between Tanzania and Milan.

After various travels and experiences around the world,  I came back to Africa in 2011, starting my career as a guide.

My interest quickly shifted towards  protected area management and since then have been managing various conservation and tourism projects within Tanzania.

My work gave me the opportunity to experience the beauty of Africa from a privileged perspective, one that I want to share with the world through my photographs.

Photographer, adventurer, conservationist & lover of the wild.

My Art

Through my eyes

Photography for me is a way to capture the essence of the amazing people, wildlife and places I have been fortunate to experience. Most of my images are in black and white, with dark shadows and sharp contrasts; this stylistic choice is a way for me to express the mystery of Africa through my art.

Not only photography
