My name is Tommaso Avati and I am a fiction writer (novels and screenplays sometimes). Writing is my life, I really enjoy it and there is nothing comparable to the pleasure that gives to you composing a nice and well constructed story. Photography though is my hobby, what I do when I want to “unplug” my mind from work. And it is curious how both activities are somehow similar. Both need composition, both require a watchful and concentrated eye, both (in most cases) have to do with human beings. Similarities may go on maybe, but what I am really interested in here is telling you how I got into film photography.
