    Giuseppe La Sala
    Giuseppe's professional photography experience commenced in Italy back in 2010. In those early years, he delved into the dynamic realm of sports photojournalism, contributing his skills to a Motorsport agency with a primary focus on captivating events such as the World Rally Championship and Formula 1. The fast-paced world of motorsports not only refined his craft but also ignited a passion for extensive travel, providing him with a wealth of invaluable experiences that shaped the trajectory of his career.

    In 2014, he decided to pivot and embrace a new direction by transitioning into architectural photography. As the years unfolded, his expertise in capturing the intricate beauty of structures deepened. By 2015, he discovered his unique voice in wedding photography, bringing forth a distinct perspective to immortalize those cherished moments. From 2015 to the present day, his professional journey has been characterized by continuous growth and exploration. Recent years have seen him mmerse himself in the captivating world of timelapse photography, applying this artistic technique not only to natural landscapes but also to the nuanced fields of real estate and property photography. This dedication to evolving his craft allows him to capture the unfolding beauty of time across diverse visual contexts. Throughout his career, he remained a faithful Nikon user until 2020 when he made a strategic shift to Sony, a decision aimed at enhancing his creative capabilities across architectural, wedding, and travel photography.

    Arches is considered a dark sanctuary meaning using light painting is not allowed. I went to do Astro Photography in June of 2021. This was taken approximately 2am when the Milky Way rose to the center of the arch. While it is a dark sanctuary, someone was hiking on the other side with a headlamp giving me just a touch of light painting to outline the arch. I held the wide angle lens open approximately 13-seconds, ISO 1600.
