Luca Diana was born on the Mediterranean island of Sardinia, Italy and started playing with cameras at the age of 6. His intense passion for photography has carried him to locales all over the world including places such as Canada, France, Ireland, Jordan, Hong Kong, Cambodia, Japan, Peru, Brazil, Egypt, Micronesia, across the United States and more.
As an artist, Luca keeps his eye open to all image possibilities, but he primarily focuses on landscapes, both natural and man-made (what he likes to call the Human Landscapes) but he also enjoys capturing the essence of snowsports as well as rodeos. His ceaseless quest to frame each place’s inherit beauty will continue on his upcoming voyages to other far away locations, such as Easter Island.
Luca has also contributed his photos, as well as expository articles, to periodicals such as Popular Photography, Ski Trax, Cross Country Skiing, 32 Degrees (the official magazine of the Professional Ski Instructors of America and American Association of Snowboard Instructors), Disneyland Paris’ internal publications, computer magazines in Italy, and more.
Luca is a certified member of the American Association of Snowboard Instructors, he also holds a certification in Avalanche Rescue and Snow Study, as well as Deep Diver and Rescue Diver SCUBA certifications. He currently resides in Jackson Hole, Wyoming near the outskirts of the Grand Teton National Park and only a short drive from Yellowstone National Park. He can often be found on foot trekking on and off the beaten path, or on the ground contorting himself into a position to get that unique shot. He works with Canon EOS cameras and his ever-growing collection of lenses. His never-leave-behind lens is the Canon EF 24-105 L
