Valerio Ricciardi (Rome, Italy, 1959) provides since 1978 professional services in photography, and content creation in the field of historical and artistic , architectural, archaeological and environmental heritage, based on extensive experience in over thirty years of activity.
In these types of images the importance of color fidelity, sharp detail and a wide tonal gradation is prevalent than the speed of processing and distribution to the final recipient.
The chemical photography, used for decades, constitutes therefore never completely forgotten technique experience, as if declined state of the art, guarantees always valid quality standards - despite he has for years been used progressively and regularly the recovery of digital technologies.
The latter, however, give their best contribution especially in post-production and distribution stages, both in print publishing that of off-line digital media (CD and DVD-ROM) and online (Web sites).
The photographer has supported, since 1987, as a journalist. The design and the treatment of the content in image form is so integrated most effectively with text content, from the concept stage (content creation) to those of development and integrated processing of visual and textual content (content design ).
The editorial production has focused mainly on the enhancement and protection of the historical, archaeological, artistic and cultural; the promotion of sustainable tourism in the Mediterranean area; a careful scientific disclosure in the field of earth sciences, technologies related to security, civil and environmental protection.
The perspective in which it operates is that of a constant technical and stylistic refinement, and an ever more harmonious and consistent variation of the various aspects of the content.
