Valentino Morgante

Valentino MorganteOf Italian origins, I was born in Malawi, the “warm heart of Africa”; here I spend my first 18 years living in close contact with Africa’s culture and nature. After a time spent in Italy, I developed my passion for wildlife photography. The call of Africa was so strong that in 1995 brought me back to Africa, to Namibia. Ever since this is my world involved in safaris and photography and still excited about this amazing continent. Some of my favourite places are the Kaokoland in Namibia, Savuti in Botswana, South Luangwa in Zambia and Mana Pools in Zimbabwe. I prefer a fine art style photography, both in colour and black and white. I personally guide small specialized groups in Southern Africa.

I consider photography an artistic expression in which allows us to highlight the stunning beauty of Africa’s Nature and I’m deeply convinced that this creative instrument can convey emotions that can contribute to help its safeguard.
