About the images
The shots above are scouting snapshots. Whenever I have extra time in Italy, I location scout. A lot of this is during "Weather' days, meaning I'm not shooting for a client or for my portfolio. Either Emiliano or I'll load the van and drive usually to Como and the area around Lake Como.
I have hundreds upon hundreds of location scouting photos from all around Lake Como and I know there are a lot of other locations I have never seen. The advantage to the smaller towns is you can usually park close to where you want to shoot. So we shoot and record the location's GPS positions along with a "Name" of that location, like: School in Como or: Factory wall near Como etc.
Having lived in Como I know a lot about the town and it is a great location to shoot in, however Como is a bustling town more centered on business vs. tourism. With a lot of people milling about it makes it difficult to get "Clean" backgrounds. However around the lake there are a lot of locations that are very cool but not as busy, especially during the week.
By having a large library of scout images I can show my clients locations that fit their needs. This allows me to logistically design a shoot that gets what they are looking for and be time efficient. These are originally scouting images that I "Worked" on to make them a bit special.
