Ugo Cei's Portrait

If you were to ask me what do I do, I would say that I am an educator who helps photography enthusiasts sharpen their skills, so that they can take amazing pictures.

I do this in various ways. First of all, by providing a wealth of free content here on Visual Wilderness and on my own website.

I lead photography tours and workshops to some cool destinations, including ScotlandVenice, Cappadocia, Oman, Greece, Kenya, and others.

My latest creative outlet is a podcast called Closing The_Gap. Every Wednesday, me and my friend Fabrizia Costa will discuss topics like what it means to have talent, or a lack of it; finding and developing a personal style; daring to produce something out of the ordinary; evoking emotions and connecting to people through photographs; dealing with criticism; achieving recognition and commercial success.

I also co-host and publish a weekly podcast about travel photography, The Traveling Image Makers. Every week, we pick the brains of famous and not-so-famous travel photographers to learn what it means to travel for the love of photography and photograph for the love of travel.
