"When I struggle creatively I go out to explore and find new places. The balance between water and mountains at Garda lake is just perfect, the Dolamite mountains have so many characteristic lines that blend perfectly with the water's reflections."
Throughout the course of the pandemic, creativity hasn't always come easy. But whether the idea has been considered beforehand or arrives in the moment, photography has helped to get me through any creative slumps."
"When it comes to Polaroid photography, you really have to pick your moment so each photo becomes very special. The composition is the most important thing to me – I need it to be perfect."
Let us hear your best compositional tips.
"I love how raw this image is. There's no Photoshop, it's literally a moment frozen in time and I think that's beautiful. I wanted the viewer to feel that sense of serenity. To feel how Brea felt while laying in that field with the winter sun hitting her face."
"I work in two different ways: either I capture a scene in the moment or I interpret the vision in my mind and bring it to life with the aim of overcoming my pain by transforming it into something beautiful."
One of the most important parts of creativity is challenging yourself to see things differently. Not always easy. Mix it up by bringing a dash of color or creating contrast by thinking outside of the frame.
We all have times when we're feeling at our most creative. Whether you're an early riser or create into the small hours, understanding your process is important. When do you feel most creative?
"For this image I wanted to capture dreams and desires through my love of close up photography. To me, Polaroid images are what our memories and dreams look like if they could be captured on film."
Capturing snowy scenes is one of the most rewarding parts of winter creativity. Shooting at sub-zero temperatures can be a challenge, what's the wildest place you've brought your favorite creative companion?

"I've been collecting Polaroid cameras for more than 20 years, since I was 13. I think I have more than 100 cameras now. My first camera was a Polaroid 635 CL Supercolor from my Grandmother Chelo. This collection reminds me of her."
