Born in Udine, Italy in 1971, Massimo studied as an engineer. His work has given him the opportunity to travel around the world and particularly around Southeast Asia.
Through his travels he has cultivated his love for photography.
Photography is his passion since he was a child. He got his first cameras when he was eight years old: a Kodak 110 Instamatic and a Polaroid instant camera!
Now Massimo is based in Hanoi traveling as much as possible in Vietnam and in other Asian countries.

Bo Bo Zaw very amazing photo you took in Myanmar.
On behalf of Myanmar people, i wish to say my words of special thanks to you for shooting very eye catching photos of our country.. on 2011-07-21, at 20:25:00
maytreya74 Hello Lara,
the face painting is called 2Tanaka", made from the root of the tree of the same name.
It is use to refresh and protect the skin against sun damage, as a sun filter. Some people apply it very artistically, as you can appreciate in this photo. on 2011-07-22, at 04:20:23
Photoburst is a photo of the day contest focusing on Travel Photography.
Everyday (from the 1st until the 28th), among all images uploaded by our contributors, we publish a photo of the day (POTD).
Every week (on the 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th), among all POTDs of the preceding week, we select a photo of the week (POTW).
On the 30th we select the best POTW as photo of the month (POTM).
From May 2015 onwards we will cease to award gift certificates to Kiva and guest editorship invitations to our POTM winners. However, occasionally we may accept/address guest editorship proposals, as we strongly believe they are a great way of further involving photographers with Photoburst. Interested? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

... as long as there's an advanced Maths course in a (not necessarily) nearby country. He's known for pushing friends into the most expensive photographic equipment... several family inheritances have been wasted, but they often acknowledge his smart advices. Owner of a clinical eye, he can spot perfection amidst chaos as easily as a small imperfection on a perfect photo. He's also an occasional stork stalker and, above all, a caring father of two beautiful children. Gastão's current location: Covilhã, Portugal.
... give us a hand. He's our Computer Science genius and is currently addicted to photographing cats. He's a natural born optimist who makes a joke out of anything... don't mess with his Toyota though. Eventually, his stocks will rise from death and he'll invest in livestock and vineyards. He's got highly trained fingers either playing the piano or shortcutting photoshop. We hope he'll stick around after marrying his college sweetheart. In the mean time, he'll dissect every submitted photograph into binary code. Pedro's current location: Covilhã, Portugal.
... would only be true if reading travel, geographic and surfing books/magazines accounted some mileage. He checks his e-mail every 2 minutes and he's often seen going cold-turkey when offline. Still divided between several walks of life, he strongly believes in Murphy's law "If anything can go wrong, it will". Photography plays a huge role in his life, at least judging by his conversation topics. Gray hair will eventually take the better of him. Pedro's current location: Covilhã, Portugal.
