About me

My name is Massimiliano Pedi, born in 1990 in Reggio Calabria (South ITALY) where I live and work. I distinguish myself in the Calabrian photographic world for my great passion for landscape photography, especially long exposure photography; I love to explore ancient villages, coastal and mountain landscapes especially during the night.
I am also passionate about 360 ° panoramic photography, and recognized as a certified professional “Google Street View Trusted”.

I boast publications in magazines such as National Geographic Italia and Vogue Italia, as well as photographic exhibitions nationwide.

The great passion for night landscape photography has led me, since March 2017, to the creation of shots that start my project entitled “CIELI DEL SUD”, an opportunity that will lead me to visit the most beautiful places in Calabria and in particular of the southern belt of the province of Reggio Calabria, commonly known as Greek Calabria, where in places far from the lights of the cities, with a rarefied light pollution, they still allow you to admire and capture a starry sky, crossed transversely by the Milky Way, our galaxy.

What excites me about this passion is to discover only after a long exposure, the wonders that the night hides
