About me  

My name is Claudio Piombetti, and I take pictures. I do it because I like it, which perfectly matches the definition of amateur: somebody who loves a particular pursuit, study, or science, and is ready to follow his passion (taking pictures, in my case) even without pay. I currently live in Surrey Atlanta Singapore near Turin, in Italy, and I am available for freelance work in Europe. In South-East Asia too, if you pay the flight. Taiwan and Cambodia are my favourite Asian destinations. Ok, anywhere you need me, pay the flight and I will be there...

In the past few years my interest has moved towards sports photography, as you can see. If you have taken part in a competition I took pictures of (hint: Aviva Ironman 70.3 2010, Extreme Sailing Series 2009, Cadet Fencing World Cup 2010, OSIM Triathlon 2010, Singapore Soccer Sixes), contact me: even if you do not see pictures of you on this website, I might have one or more, and I will be happy to send them to you. For free, and in accordance with these licensing terms.

My name - and therefore this website's address - can be hard to remember, so here's a shortcut, in case you feel like recommending somebody to visit it:

You can contact me at info AT

Breaking news (11/2010): I am currently between jobs. If you need a staff photographer, or a Web Application Developer with CF/PHP/SQL skills and almost ten years of experience in logistics, contact me.
