Mobius Arch, in California's Alabama Hills State Recreation Area forms a portal to view Lone Pine Peak and Mount Whitney. Since the 1920's film makers have been using the Alabama Hills as a backdrop for their movies. In the early days of motion pictures films such as "Gunga Din", "How the West Was Won", and "Yellow Sky" were filmed at a site within the recreation area known as "Movie Flats. More recently movies such as "Tremors", "Star Trek Generations," "Gladiator", "Iron Man", and "Django Unchained" were shot in the Alabama Hills.

Many people imagine Africa influenced by the movies they see on television and in the cinemas. But is this really like the bush is? All films are a compilation of moments in the bush. The choice of moments is influenced by the target group the film production has in mind.
The traditional BBC documentary with David Attenborough was aiming on education, the wonder of nature and to give the audience the feeling to be there. Nowadays wildlife TV channels focus on entertaining a target group that likes action, spectacular situations, high tech and excitement. On the other hand Disney has just discovered a market for nature fairy tales with real animals where the lion’s mouth gets cleaned from blood after filming and the kill happens out of sight.
It is not surprising that people have diverse ideas what to expect when visiting the bush for the first time. Often female visitors are afraid of seeing fighting and kills all the time and male visitors are disappointed when not seeing spectacular kills the whole day. But mostly all end up loving it. A day in the bush is for 95 % peaceful and the other five percent can be impressive moments with their own beauty. There is nothing like a one-hour sequence of kills and fights in the bush. Only men create something like that.

Gabriele Rampinini, Photographer in Tokyo


IMG_6193My name is Gabriele Rampinini, I'm Italian and I live in Tokyo, Japan.
I particularly enjoy taking pictures of mannequins, shadows, graffiti, buildings and trees.
Recently I started using film (mainly black&white, 35mm and medium format) and I learnt how to develop it myself (not very difficult but very satisfying).
I believe that working with an analog camera in the long run will help me being more selective with the subjects and the perspectives I choose for my pictures.
Of course I realize that for sport and fast action in general, digital is the way to go, but for things that don't move analog cameras slow you down just enough to let you think more about the composition before taking a picture. This usually results in stronger images, I feel.
Anyway I use them both and I find it very refreshing to switch form one to the other... At the moment I'm enjoying the Hipstamatic on the iPhone... it's a lot of fun!

Above all, what I look for is originality and a sense of quiet beauty. Through the subjects of my images I strive to give the viewer something of my character. I try to give them MY perspective even on subjects they may be familiar with.

Through my Photoshelter website you can buy prints as well as a wide variety of products and accessories, ranging from T-shirts to magnets.
I also offer the flexibility to order a product of your choice with one of your pictures on it.
Whatever you choose I do my best to make sure you'll be 100% satisfied.
For any further information do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you !
