VIAMAR a.k.a. VIncenzo AMARante

My name is Vincenzo Amarante, and long ago (1994) I started using the "Viamar" nickname as a short and unique identifier on the Internet.

I have many (maybe too many..) hobbies, but photography is one of the most enjoyable and therefore the one I practice most.

I always lived surrounded by photography: my grandfather and my uncles were (and the living ones still are) big photographers, able to convert this art in a reason of life.

When I was 7 I was given an old Retina II camera, previously owned by my grandfather, and with it I started doing some photographic 'damage'.
As a kid I enjoyed helping my uncles, professional photographers, in their job, and this allowed me to 'steal' their art and improve my technical skills.
