After moving from Italy to the Bay Area more than 10 years ago, I soon discovered my love for photography. I started in the digital photography world with a point-and-shoot and gradually evolved skills and expertise. In 2008 I bought my first DSLR, Nikon D50, and in 2009 as I started this blog. As I began to share my photographs with the larger audience of the Internet, it led me to foreign publishing and local art exhibits. Starting Salvatore Ventura Photography was the next exciting step.

Each picture is a story in the happening, and a memory to be told

Ever since I have traveled in US, Europe, South America and Asia, taking with me my camera, and bringing back countless memories.

After all, each picture is a story in the happening, and a memory to be told.
