A couple of words about myself…

My name is Simone and I live in north Italy. I have always had one passion…THE SUPERCARS! I was a child and I don't remember well but the first supercar I have seen is probably a blue Bugatti EB110, a really fabulous car! My passion for the supercars increased with the years and became stronger with my first voyage in the city of supercars: Monte-Carlo!

I remember that in Monte-Carlo I made my first photo to a supercar: I photographed a green Aston Martin Vanquish and with this photo born in me the passion of automotive photography! Now I have thousand and thousand of supercars's photos and, when I have the possibility, I go always to manifestations of supercars in Italy and in neighboring countries (Monte-Carlo, of course, including! :-D)

The day  to remember…
When I've had the possibility to see and to do a little travel as passenger on an incredible Pagani Zonda F Clubsport during the 2006 summer! (Go to the section "Video" for to see a small extract of the power of this incredible supercar!)

My equipment…

For wideangle photos I use the Canon 60Da with or the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art, or the Tokina 11-16 F/2.8 Aspherical + the circular polarizer + the external flash Speedlite Canon 430EX. For shows indoor or photo shooting I use also a Manfrotto 055XPROB tripod + Manfrotto 486RC2 ball head or, if I need of a compact size, I've other two small tripod (Sirui T-005 + Joby GorillaPod SLR-Zoom) + other two ball heads, that are perfect for this.

For all other photos I use a Canon 5D MKIII with or the Canon EF 135mm f/2.0 L USM or the Canon 70-200 f/4L IS USM + Hoya HD circular polarizer.

Furthermore I've had a compact digital camera, the Panasonic TZ1, that I've used for the photos in 4:3 format that there are into my website.

My work place…

In digital photography for to have good photos are essential not only the photographic equipment, but other tools are necessary.

First of all a monitor with faithful colors that not changes color profile in the time.

For this reason I use a Samsung 24" 244T with S-PVA panel and the Spyder3Pro, a colorimeter professional by Datacolor.

I also purchased, choosing every single piece, a powerful computer to run quickly the RAW workflow.

The website…

With time caldicarphoto has changed graphic and the resolution of photos. It has begun with 1600x1200 pixel, next 1800x1200 pixel, then 3000x2000 pixel, after that every updating has become a reportage with a text and a little number of higly selected photos.
From 2012 caldicarphoto has an its official Facebook page and now the standard is a photo every day in low resolution there, and every month all photos put on the Facebook page uploaded here on the website but in high resolution, 1800x1200 pixel.
Now the website has a simple structure, user friendly and as always all photos can be saved on your pc/tablet/smartphone without problems for your personal use, for all other uses (editorial, use some of them on your website and so on...) contact me! ;)

As you can see the website is changed in these years, but the goal to share my photographies with a large public of supercars's fans is not changed!

Your car is featured in one of my pictures and you want that I remove it from my website?

No problem at all, you just contact me (read below). When proof the car is really yours will be provided, I will gladly remove the pictures.
