Biography - Renato Valterza

Nature and travel photographer Renato Valterza grew up in Piedmont (ITALY) with a love for the outdoors. Renato first picked up a camera when he was fourteen and started in publishing his own first pictures while completing a degree in engineering at the University of Torino.

Later, he improved his knowledge and skill in photography attending different workshops held by leading photographers like Robert Sisson (N.G.S.), Ernst Haas, and Pete Turner. In the '80s, he travelled extensively around the world documenting the vanishing nature of many countries such as Madagascar, Poland, Siberia etc...

Renato sees his fundamental role as a photographer both as a conservationist and an artist. As a conservationist, he is a regular contributor of the best regional magazine in Italy devoted to parks and environment (Piedmont Parchi). His nearly 40 reportages and articles for the magazine have focused primarily on natural history and conservation effort in Italy. As an artist, he uses the warm richly textured light in nature to capture on film intimate and often fleeting moments few of us can see.

In 1999, Renato Valterza was deeply involved in the Millennium Photo Project (the biggest ever done on the web) acting as the national coordinator of the project in Italy and as a successful Photographer. Click here to learn more about Renato's work with the Project.

One of Renato's most important projects in progress is a book about gardens, the title will be "Garden's Lights".

Renato's son, Daniele, is associated to the company and is working as an assistant with his father, Renato.

We are located in TORINO city (XX Olympic Winter Games 2006) ITALY.
