BLACKRAPID Guest Post by Stefano Bonetti | Traveling and Rock Climbing with the Curve Breathe

Lake Griesse and Mount Neufenenstock, Swiss Alps.

BEAUTY IS ALL AROUND US, THE TASK OF THE PHOTOGRAPHER IS JUST TO SHOW IT TO EVERYONE.

Hi everyone! I’m Stefano, I’m 26 and I’m an Italian photographer. I’m here to talk about my photography and share some experiences and shots I took during my trips.

Lake d’Avino, Alpe Veglia, Italy (2200m).

I LOVE NATURE AND I LOVE THIS PLANET.

My goal is to make people aware about the beauty of nature, capturing it through my photos. I want to show people how wonderful the world is, and how important is to protect it.

Monteleone, Italy (3550 m).

I LIKE TO CALL MYSELF A LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHER,

although I do not mind making portrait of the people I meet during my trip. Nature is my inspiration, anyway.

I SPEND MY TIME AND MONEY TRAVELLING, ESPECIALLY IN THE MOUNTAIN.

Because of this, I need to be light, avoiding too much weight on my backpack: I just carry with me my camera hanging on the incredible BLACKRAPID Curve Breathe. This strap allows me to have my mirrorless constantly ready for taking the right shot, in a very handy way. I carry it during my hiking even under the shoulder pads of my backpack, with no problems. I have a micro 4/3 mirrorless Olympus with the 12-40mm f/2.8 Pro (which is 24-80mm on a Full Frame) and sometimes I use my girlfriend’s Canon 1000D with 10-24 mm Tamron when I need a wide angle: the Curve Breathe strap is perfect for both.

FURTHERMORE, I LOVE ROCK CLIMBING.

When I climb, I hook my camera to the BLACKRAPID Curve (through the LockStar and the FastenR system), hanging it with a carabiner to my harness. Then? I just climb, with my camera safe and fixed behind my back. So when I’m on the top, I just bring ahead my camera and I start taking picture of the view I’ve just conquered. I’ve never done it before having the Curve Breathe! This is how the BLACKRAPID Curve Breathe changed my photography.

Arrived at the top. Fortunately, I have my camera safe until the summit, thanks to BLACKRAPID technology.

PEACE TO EVERYONE!
