DonegalMugshotWelcome to my website. Thanks for stopping by.

I love to travel and show the beauty of the world and its inhabitants to everybody. This is really an amazing planet we live on and every place and every culture possesses beauty that deserves to be shown.

I am passionate about sharing my vision, so you will find me frequently on various social media outlets, but you can get a selection of my best work or read some of the tidbits about travel, technique, and inspiration that I share on here.

I am one of the founders of Mediterranean Photo Tours, a company offering photography workshops in the most inspiring locations of the Mediterranean.

Most of my work is available for licensing or as prints. Contact me at for inquiries.

    I am sure most of you know about The Candid Frame, Ibarionex Perello’s venerable podcast about photography.

I can say I was surprised and greatly honored by it. The Candid Frame #264 - Ugo Cei
