What is freedom ultimately?
It’s something you can’t encase in a quote, you can’t capture in a picture, you can only experience in the warm wind blowing your air, in the dust dirtying your feet, in the sun burning your skin, in a song making your heart singing, in a splash of water giving you goosebumps, in the love making your heart beat.

If you are aligned with the Universe and you move from a place of love, when one door closes another hundreds doors will open.
When I started photography as a full time job it was 6 years ago in Mysore, India, and I was mainly shooting yoga and more specifically Ashtanga Yoga practitioners. I didn’t have a website, IG wasn’t there and I started getting hired so much mainly for word of mouth. After few years, mainly because I get bored in doing always the same thing, I started shooting other things: first other styles of yoga, then more lifestyle, some fashion, dance, fitness, nudes, portraits and so on. Some of my first clients and followers didn’t like my new style, some told me I had to be consistent to be recognizable and stick in only one subject, some others didn’t like the nude photos and unfollowed me, other clients I had for years disagree on the fact that I was too critical on some things happening in the Ashtanga Yoga world and never hired me again (and unfollowed me of course), some galleries and publishers I sent my work to told me they were not interested and that my style was not arty enough and too commercial, some models retouched themselves some photos I took of them because they were not airbrushed enough (and never called me again) but in general, of the hundreds of opportunities I had, other hundreds opportunities were born.
We can’t be liked by anyone and probably we don’t even need to aim that.
Fact is that, even if I’ve always been lucky to work a lot, I’ve never been busy like now.
I’m mostly fully booked all around the world until October and right now I’m in London because today I start a 3 day photo shooting for @triyogauk
I’m so grateful to be able to travel, create and share with the world. This is the life I was dreaming of, and I’m loving it fully.

Sometimes all stars aligns together. This Sunday, I was back from Peru since a couple of days and I had to shoot a video for @secondyou_activewear
I had the outfit, the concept, the model (the amazing @lamartidancer) and the location (an outdoor theatre) but unfortunately the forecast were saying rain for all day (and they were right). So I quickly thought of another solution and started googling for abandoned places (you already know how much I love abandoned places) and this is how I found this gorgeous villa.
Ok, I know it’s not perfectly legal to sneak in a place where there’s a “no trans passing” sign but what’s wrong with that? I love to bring past glories and history back to life with my photography and an abandoned villa is just perfect for that... plus in my opinion the signs of time gives some extra charm to everything and can make a perfect place even more perfect.
Speaking about passing of time (but with no signs, because she’s super young 😏) today is Martina’s birthday. 🎂Show her some love... She’s beautiful and talented, a real Goddess!

I’ve been quiet impressed seeing the students coming out from @jaya.prada.radhika’s teacher training: after one mont of hard training, 8 to 10 hours of yoga and philosophy every day, their practice was literally something already totally integrated into their lives. I’ve also been lucky enough to have some shootings planned with them right at the end of the training. Having worked for years with people that have been in front of the camera millions of times, it’s been a fun experience being the one chosen for the first “professional photo shooting”. As I said, the first time is never the best one, but well, @cyogilove did quiet a good job. Check out the video of her practice, filmed at @samadhisacredvalley, on my Facebook page and YouTube Channel.

I spent almost every day in Peru together with @jaya.prada.radhika and @govinda_dev_das and I could really appreciate Govinda’s quiet yet strong energy. He doesn’t only have so much knowledge of yoga philosophy (he’s the philosophy teacher at Radhika’s training), he’s a real pillar in the YTTC and in Radhika’s life. He’s always reliable and supportive, much like a pillar that helps hold the structure up. In this case, the saying must go like this: behind a great woman, there is a great man.

Last week I wrote about what was happening with @kinoyoga and all the Alo/Cody thing. I’m so happy as I heard that Alo and Cody dropped their lawsuits against @nolatrees 😀
I think it really sets an example for the future about how things has to be handled in the yoga world. Companies, brands and individuals can’t just do the same like in the rest of the market: some extra care and extra ethics is needed if you use the word “yoga” attached to your business.
Good job Alo/Cody! 👏🏼👏🏼
Now that the first step has been taken, I hope that an amicable solution will be reached with Kino too... she deserves it all!

I went to Peru with not many expectations, having organized the trip when I was working on other projects, but I left my heart there.
In 20 days spent in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, while working hard every day, I was also able to meet extraordinary people, discover more about a very unique country, eat local organic quinoa and avocado almost every day, doing my first sweat lodge, chewing coca leaves like a local, drinking yerba mate instead of coffee, hugging an alpaca (one of the softest animals on earth), trying the Inca Massage, attending a ceremony with a shaman, hiking carrying my equipment at more than 4000 mts above sea level, visiting one of the wonders of the world (Machu Picchu), doing a 5 days liver cleanse, swimming naked in the coldest waterfall (and getting lost with a dog met the day before while looking for that waterfall) and many other little things that surprised me every single day. I had such a great time at @yogamandalasacredvalley and I hope this video can give the idea of how much I loved that place. (Full video on YouTube)

While I’m really passionate about making yoga imagery more and more open to any body type, age group, ethnicity, physical abilities, bringing yoga back to the people, at the same time I feel it’s so great that more and more influencers and fitness models are choosing yoga as their favorite activity and they share their progress on the mat with their huge audiences.
I know some people criticize this, and they don’t like that when yoga is used like that, but to me it’s a no brainer, because I always like to think positive and see the bright side of every aspect of life.
Maybe it’s also because I’ve been 16 years working in advertising and I remember when I started in the 90’s and models where associated with anorexia, hard drugs and parties, there was even a proper model look coined “heroin chic”.
And now, 20 years later, it’s much easier to associate models with smoothies, vegan food and yoga.
Healthy lifestyle = healthy influencing. Isn’t it?
Here I share a pic of the awesome Brazilian model @ricardo.barbato who was attending @jaya.prada.radhika’s Teacher Training.

You can add your favorite quote about connection, balance, strength, flexibility or partner work 😏 I’m to tired to write something clever so I just share a nice photo of two wonderful human beings of the many I had the pleasure to spend time with, in these 20 days in Peru. I’m traveling since 20 hours and currently stuck in Madrid airport as I missed my connection flight to Italy. I will be back home in the middle of the night after almost two days of travels. So the quote could be also about surrendering and patience 😂
Beautiful @jaya.prada.radhika and @danielrama_
