Giorgio Trucco Poster Collection.
A new Fine Art Posters section has been added to my website!

A new collection of my images is now available as Fine Art Posters. If you associate the word -Poster- to a mass produced image of some celebrity in a teen-ager's room, you are missing something!
My Posters are true fine-art, high quality, open edition prints. I don't print in large quantities, so I don't need to resort to Offset printing to cut down the costs. Each Poster is printed individually "to order" on high quality heavyweight poster paper.

All Posters, as well as my collection of Art Cards, can now be purchased directly with PayPal by clicking on the associated PayPal button.
Check out my new collection of Fine Art Posters and make you order to add an elegant touch to your room or office!

A new review of the Fotoman 6x17 panoramic camera has been added to the Articles section on this website.

6x17 film cameras are highly specialized cameras rarely found in the average photographer’s bag.
If you are a film photographer and you are interested in wide format photography, this article will provide you with an independent and in-depth review of the Fotoman 617, a camera that I’ve used extensively for about six months and that represents a viable alternative to the its expensive rivals in the same category.

Sunset on Lake Powell, Alstrom Point, Page, AZ.
Fotoman 6x17, Schneider Super Angulon 90mm f/8, Fuji Velvia
The view from this overlook point encompasses such a great majesty that you’ll feel blessed you brought a 6x17 camera with you.

Cave of fire, Coyote Buttes, AZ.
Fotoman 6x17, Schneider Super Angulon 90mm f/8, Fuji Velvia

With the right subject, a vertical composition in the 6x17 format can create a very powerful sense of space.

Antelope Canyon, Page, AZ.
Fotoman 6x17, Schneider Super Angulon 90mm f/8, Fuji Velvia

Light shafts, delicate colors and mesmerizing sandstone formations will welcome the photographer inside the Antelope Canyon.

The “Second Wave”, Coyote Buttes, AZ.
Fotoman 6x17, Schneider Super Angulon 90mm f/8, Fuji Velvia

I’ve never seen a panoramic image of this wonderful feature. This might well be the only one ever shot!

Don't miss this article about an exciting and different way of seeing photographically!

Savannas, lakes, forests, lions, elephants, hippos... in one word: AFRICA!
The most remote and unspoiled parks and game reserves of Tanzania and Malawi. That's where we are heading.

For the entire month of July we will be traveling aboard of a retrofit army truck, a true african monster, equipped with everything we need to get close to the animals, wherever they are.

Stay tuned for a report and photos of this wonderful trip when we come back in August!

The trip to Equador has been a once in a lifetime experience!
I plan to post a trip report later on, as soon as I have time to scan some of the thousand slides this trip produced. I've also resumed my normal activity and I've been working on the long awaited... metric version of MatWorks!
Yes, it's finally available and you can downlaod it here.

As usual, I encourage all users to report any bug, and to suggest improvements or request new features.

I'm finally out for an exciting three-week-long photographic expedition to the heart of the Ecuadorian Amazon forest.
Our itinerary will take us to the northern territories of the Yasuni National Park, along the meanders and oxbow lakes of Rio Napo.

The "green sea" from the space...

More than 1,500 species of trees, climbing vines and exotic flowers, as well as 550 species of tropical birds, 13 species of monkeys and thousands of beautiful butterflies awaits us on our adventure.
Stay tuned for a report and photos of this wonderful trip when we come back in September!

I've received overwhelming good feedback about my MatWorks! software.
Among others, Jason Sampson wrote me:
Hi Giorgio,
I downloaded your matworks product after reading about it on Outback photo.  What a great tool!  I really needed something like this.

Jeffrey Billings wrote:
You knew you were going to get an email like this!
If you can see your way to produce a Mac version, you'd have my undying gratitude.

and Marty Connelly added:
I would like to tell you what a God send your program is. I saw it on Outback and downloaded it immediatly without reading the whole article. I love photography and I like making prints. The big problem I have is cutting mats. I sit there with a calculator and paper figuring what the mat opening will be and I do not always get them right. I will from now on.
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You

...ok, ok, thanks for the kind words and rest assured that I got the message.
I will keep this program alive and will introduce new features along the way, included a MAC version of the software. I'm already working on it!

In the meanwhile, all Windows users, please pay attention to the following.
If you get an error like the one below…

all you have to do is to download from the Internet the following .dll:


Then copy the downloaded file to the Windows/system32 directory.
Now register the .dll by going to Start>Run> and typing:

regsvr32 msstdfmt.dll

Click ok.
Now the software will work properly on your system.

A new exciting software has been added for download from this website (here).
I wrote this software to help fine-art photographers plan and exceute their matting projects error-free!
MatWorks! is a simple program that provides a virtual matting board for a variety of matting projects.
With MatWorks! you can easily calculate the dimensions of the Mat opening and preview the final results using some of the most common matting options.
Most important, MatWorks! is a free software.
