Simone Pomata
It's me! - Agosto 2014

My name is Simone Pomata. I was born August 5, 1992 in Bergamo and I live in Nembro (BG), Italy.

In 2009, at age 16, I bought my first SLR, a used Canon EOS 400D with the lens Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4.5 DC HSM, a jack of all trades with which I took all my photos for several years. In January 2012, I bought another lens, Canon 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM, a spectacular wide-angle lens, among the best for APS-C cameras, with wich now I shot most of my pictures. In 2013 shutter of my 400D broke, so I upgraded to a 600D. In the same year I bought a Tamron 70-300mm that completes my equipment.

I mainly shot photos of landscapes (natural and artificial) and architecture.

I am currently a university student and photography is one of my greatest passions.

Since May 2012 I manage my website: SimonePomata.com, that is written entirely by me using PHP and other programming languages. Since September 2013 is available english version of the website.
To date, the site has 29 articles of any level, from those for beginners to those for the more experienced users, and 40 photos you can see in the Gallery section.

I invite you to follow me also on the Web:
