Tommasi Giovanni - photographer

Tommasi Giovanni


I was born in Milan on April 8, 1959.

I grew up in the "very hot" Città Studi area where, due to large mass movements and protests, I began to understand and discover the importance of capturing the moment, the expression, the face, the situation with an image. In practice, I understand the importance of the photojournalist and photographic reportage.


In the 70s I moved to the Como area where I carried out my profession and cultivated my passion for photography.

In 2014 life circumstances led me to move to the province of Varese.


Like everyone at the time, I approached photography with the classic Kodak, Polaroid, etc… then, one fine day, I treated myself to a beautiful Olympus OM10. Naturally, a telephoto lens, zoom, filters, tripod and everything needed by a photographer, even if an amateur, could not be missing. Only later did I discover that photography is not only the result of the camera or the various accessories, but of the ability of the shooter, of those who know how to seize the moment, the place, the light, the atmosphere and above all inspiration.


The arrival of new technologies, another great passion of mine, leads me to digital, always an Olympus. I do not tolerate "photo retouching", the artfully modified photo to make it "just" and/or "without defects".

In recent times I have felt the need to go back to the reflex, this time digital  and the desire to experiment with new photographic techniques has increased while keeping faith with my principle of not retouching the shots. So I fulfilled this desire by giving myself a Canon EOS 200D with 10/18 18/55 and 55/250 lenses.


Over the years, despite the many positive signals and invitations received, I have never participated in exhibitions, competitions or events.


My shots “stop the moment” in its natural and original condition. It is a patient and difficult search for light, for moments and situations until I find the right moment, or what seems to me to be the right moment, the best conditions, the moment to make the magical and unrepeatable "CLICK".


How much time do I spend in post-production? Almost nothing because I believe that the photograph should be the mirror of that precise moment and any alteration, modification or retouching makes the document a fake, a distortion of reality.


It is for these reasons that I have made the following aphorism my own:


“The amateur photographer cares about having the right equipment, the professional cares about money and the master cares about light”

(George B.IR)
