Cristian Musiu – Cabras-based photographer.
Hi, I’m Cristian, and I have been a photoholic since I was a kid.
I started taking photos of landscapes, adding portraits and still life to my portfolio and I’ve always strived to further my skill set and explore new techniques. My dream is to turn this passion into a career, share my artistic perspective with others as well as grow as a professional photographer.
I hope I’ll be able to make this dream come true and explore all the new possibilities that photography has to offer.
Silvio Piscedda – Cabras-based Photographer
My passion for photography has deep roots. As a fisherman growing up on an Island I deeply love, I have always enjoyed browsing through family photos.
My passion for photography began during my adolescence when I realized I had no photos of myself as a child.
Meeting a Milanese professional photographer, who was a family friend, in the 80s left an indelible impression on my mind. With the advent of digital technology, I started investing money in increasingly powerful devices to take photos and make videos to share on social media.
Thanks to my passion for photography and videos, I have the opportunity to capture the beauty of my Island and its wonders. My shots have become a way to share my vision of the world and the beauty of the island where I live with others.
