I am honored to showcase an awesome talent by the name of Stefano Bortoletto (@sbortoletto on Instagram).

This guy does not have a specific style, he just shoot interesting and beautiful stuff and does it well, and its one of the reasons why he is a contributing photographer on

So here is Behind the Viewfinder with Stefano Bortoletto.

Whats your style of photography, what type of images do you identify with most.

I think I’m a bit of a mixed bag when it comes to style, but in general I like symmetry in my pictures and I don’t usually take pictures of people. I really enjoy clean, simple images that are symmetric.

Which photographers influenced you.

Many Instagram photographers like MeetJulian and Sezyilmaz.

What technology (camera/software) do you use most?

I phone 6 and VSCOcam to edit.

What motivates you to continue taking pictures

The fun of creating something that looks beautiful or interesting to me is enticing.

Which is your favorite lens? Why?

I never really experimented with different lenses, but I feel like a large zoom lens would be something I would love to shoot with because of the unique perspectives that come out of seeing something that is far away up close and personal.

What camera gear do you wish you had? Why?

I just wish I had a better camera in general. I have had a Sony nex-5 for a couple of years now, and an older Canon AE-1 film camera. I feel that a modern Canon or Nikon will be my next step.

How do you educate yourself to take better pictures?

Looking at other peoples photographs is the best lesson to get better with your own photos.

Among your works, which one is your favorite? Why?

I don’t exactly have a favorite image, but I do have a favorite series of images. I shoot a lot when I am on trips, and in particular in NYC where there are so many things to look at from different angles.

What is the one thing you wish you knew when you started taking photos?

How time consuming it would become haha. Also, that having expensive equipment isn’t everything in photography. Having an eye to see things in a frame and visualizing the photograph before you take it is the most important skill.

What makes the good picture stand out from the average?

When a picture is really good, it makes you stop, admire, and reflect.

Which City/State do you live in.

Miami, Florida.
