Tromsø – Northern Norway
I devoted the past 10 years to the study of nature and film. I began my career as a wildlife photographer, publishing photojournalism in international magazines and being shortlisted in international photography competitions (Nikon, National Geographic, Photo Montier, Nature Namur).
When I moved to Tromsø (Northern Norway), I started to specialise as Arctic cinematographer and documentary director. My first two short documentaries have been awarded in several international film festivals and presented on national Italian TV – RAI. Thanks to the Talent Stipend scholarship from SpareBank Northern Norway I have been able to improve my skills as underwater cinematographer with one of the most important underwater cameramen in the world.
I’m currently working as director on my feature documentary “Arctic Blue” supported by NFI, NNFS, FFN and TVIBIT. Arctic Blue has been selected in the Esodoc and Documentary Campus programme. Recently shortlisted in “The Whickers Award”.
Nowadays, I work as freelance cinematographer and drone pilot in Northern Norway with national and international productions as BBC, Silverback and DeepSea.
IGUAZÙ, alla scoperta della foresta atlantica
This book is a journey in itself, more than just an adventure novel, a guidebook or a set of travel diaries. From the opening pages, Ismaele’s natural enthusiasm and colloquial style bring you right there beside him as he writes passionately and engagingly about his travels.
Together, you’ll step into the jungle to chase tufted capuchin monkeys and coatis. You’ll meet caimans and snakes and unforgettable characters. You’ll be able to truly experience the forest and immerse yourself in a new type of spirituality with the indigenous Guaraní people. The book also offers a welcome opportunity to reflect on what is too often undervalued and is, in fact, the very essence of nature that needs not only looking at, but also looking after.
An intense experience!
The book was awarded the President’s Special Prize at the Maiella National Park’s literary awards (23rd edition).
