Rosamaria Ciao sono Rosamaria e vengo dalla Sardegna. Sono un'insegnante di scuola dell'infanzia. Da poco più di un anno ho scoperto la fotografia.. mi ha aperto un mondo e cambiato il mio modo di essere e guardare la vita che mi circonda. Amo osservare le persone, conoscere storie catturare sguardi, dettagli, frammenti di vita.
Antonello Salve,mi chiamo Antonello ,sono nato in un piccolo paese della provincia di Oristano in Sardegna nel 1977. Comincio ad appassionarmi di fotografia verso i 25 anni con la prima compatta per poi con il tempo arrivare al mondo reflex e i primi corsi con fotografi affermati a livello mondiale come Simone Sbaraglia,con cui effettuo corsi di vario livello. Amante del paesaggio e della naturalistica ma non disdegno tutti gli altri generi fotografici consapevole che ognuno di essi è fonte di confronto e miglioramento personale.
