    "Erm... test test.

    This the first testimonial I write on flickr and I wanted it to be for Giuseppe.

    I'll be honest: my first impression about him was not good. Such a talented and handsome guy had to be full of himself. "He must not bother having a look at others' photostreams" - I thought.

    After months of closely following his amazing work I decided to leave a brief comment on one of his pictures and I got shocked: This guy was supernice!! Seriously, I was so so suprised by his kindness, his politness and his will to help! I immediately felt stupid for my biased first impression.

    I'm very happy to have ran across his stream and I just regret not having commented (and thus starting to know him better) way before.
    As a photographer there's not much I can say. His photostream speaks by itself.

    It's a pleasure to have you in my contacts and to learn from you, Giu, and I wish we can meet in person some day because I have the feeling you're a very very good person."

    "Giuseppe is such an amazing talent it's hard to come up with words that accurately describe him. His photography is excellent, as are his photo illustrations, but his imaginative, surreal and masterfully executed matte paintings are in a class all their own. It's a pleasure and an honor to be able to consider Giuseppe a friend- and with any luck, one day I'll have the pleasure of actually shaking his hand."

    Its alway a joy to see your creativity and how you combine your multiple talents. Besides your technical skills, which are amazing, you have a good understanding how to use your talent in the right way. Whether its the compositing, the mood or just capturing a moment, your pictures have a story to tell, and that i think is one of the most important aspects of photography and Art. Your enthusiasm and your good sense of humor is refreshing. Keep it up, and rock on Giuseppe!"

    "Una volta conosciute le fotografie di Giuseppe e Giacomo se ne rimane talmente affascinati, da non poterne più fare a meno.
    Li considero tra i più capaci e sensibili fotografi in Flickr perché le loro opere hanno un grande potere di penetrazione che trascina nel momento in cui sono stati fatti gli scatti.
    Ci si sente come dilatati da quello che entra dagli occhi fino all'anima e si prova il bisogno di conservare per sempre le atmosfere uniche e preziose che sanno raccontare e mostrare una realtá speciale, da sogno, morbida e melodiosa.
    Nessun soggetto è uguale all’altro, ma ognuno è una magia a sé. Una magia che regala serenitá, permette rilessioni, dona emozioni e fa della fotografia un GRANDE momento di felicitá."

    "Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, an enduring debate exists regarding photography versus art, and the advent of computing power, digital cameras, and the melding of various medias certainly has given the opposing viewpoints plenty of ammunition. While the proponents of each side would have you believe otherwise, these viewpoints are not exclusive.

    Allow me to introduce Exhibit "A", the photographic art of Giuseppe and Giacomo.

    The photographic excellence is astounding, and the artistic interpretation and processing applied to every image is phenomenal. Identifiably theirs, the work is first-rate, both photographically and artistically--an impeccable blend of art and photography.

    While the point where art begins and photography ends may be debatable, the quality of Giuseppe and Giacomo's work is not. The harmony between photography and art is clearly evident, and its co-existence boosts the quality of their work to a higher level.

    Good day, gentlemen--I rest my case."

    "Roger e Taylor.
    Cip e Ciop.
    Stanlio e Olio.
    Pane e Nutella.
    Giacomo e Giuseppe.

    Tutte accoppiate vincenti. Con riuscite favolose.
    Roger e Taylor sono gli alter-ego virtuali di una coppia realmente favolosa: Giacomo e Giuseppe.

    Non sono neanche 6 mesi che fotografo e non fa neanche un mese dalla mia prima reflex. Ma è da sempre che faccio "indigestione" fotografica. E su Flickr l'indigestione rischia di avere pesanti effetti collaterali.
    Ma con Giacomo e Giuseppe non ci si sente mai sazi. Anzi... Mi ritrovo a pensare che vorrei che producessero sempre e sempre di più!

    Giacomo e Giuseppe hanno uno stile "bello", ma con la B maiuscolo. E nel concetto di Bellezza, in questo caso, poco c'è di soggettivo. C'è una cura del particolare, una ricchezza tecnica, una precisione nella produzione finale del soggetto e una capacità tutta peculiare di chi sta dietro l'obiettivo, che rendono gli scatti che pubblicano, pezzi di una realtà da sogno. E accosto realtà e sogno perchè sono pochi gli scatti che trasmettono questo.

    Ragazzi, avete un "marchio" che rende i vostri lavori immediatamente riconoscibili e quindi grazie per ogni scatto che ci regalate!"

    Ho visto un lavoro "formale" perfetto, come deve essere, che sceglie soggetti diversi per assoggettarli ad un trattamento di colore e di luce che incantano.

    "Giuseppe e Giacomo, due fotografi e' vero, ma si fa fatica a distinguerne l'identita' creativa sul loro fantastico e caleidoscopico Photostream.
    Per me e' come se fossero realmente una sola, unica grande personalita' creativa capace di esprimersi sempre al meglio.

    Su ogni foto c'e' sicuramente il lavoro congiunto, e si vede, poiche' ogni scatto e' impeccabile sotto ogni punto di vista, dal titolo, ai dettagli, alle luci fino all'uso degli strumenti di fotoritocco dei quali sono indubbiamente dei maestri.

    Padroni della tecnica in HDR, non disdegnano cimentarsi in panorami fuori dal comune o macro ultranitide e perfette, o ancora tecniche di long exposure come La Piaja in Velocità.

    A questo punto direi che avete solo da scorrere il loro photostream ed ammirarli come faccio spesso io!"

    Normally I'm not a fan of the HDRs, but their HDRs never are loadeds, excessives of unreals. They always obtain the right point that the beauty of the reality stands out but without deform the natural beauty of the things.
    Its range of colors is impressive and its photographic vision of the best ones.
    I'm in Flickr for a few months but I've discovered this pair of photographers and I can assure that it is a good idea to review its photographies one by one.
