DELPHICAPHOTO photo trekking are conceived, organized and cared for considering balance, interdependence and interconnection as fundamental aspects that bind the human being to other living forms and to nature.
Photography lovers can make a real difference with their behavior and their images.
For this reason, at the base of photo trekking, there are three main branches that inspire and guide them:
DELPHICAPHOTO photo trekking make you come into direct and profound contact with nature and all its biodiversity.
Spend one or more days away from the confusion of overly populated places, walking and contemplating natural landscapes:
● relaxes the mind and activates the substances of well-being and satisfaction in the brain;
● improves cardiovascular factors and immune function;
● stimulates learning.
Being able to express your creativity through photography:
● improves your mood and immerses you in the flow of change in time and space;
● opens the door to a greater knowledge of your being and to the joy of discovering new abilities;
● increases neural connections and leads to a state of greater psychophysical well-being.
DELPHICAPHOTO photo trekking are an opportunity to broaden your knowledge and experience:
● you learn to understand the environment around you and to harmonize with it;
● your sensitivity towards all forms of life and the whole environment grows;
● you learn to move in nature during your shots, applying simple principles of respect;
● your photographs testify the beauty of nature and the importance of protecting it.
Today it is increasingly important to develop an ecological mentality that is based on considering the human being as a co-star of an integrated whole.
According to the hypothesis of the biophilia the human being has "an innate tendency that leads him to focus his attention on the different forms of life and on everything that remembers them and, in a certain sense, to associate himself emotionally with them in a sort of empathy that leads him to appreciate diversity."
From this way of being in the world arises the need to abandon any futile selfishness to understand how much it is instead the experience of an "we" that gives meaning to every daily choice.
It is possible to enjoy nature and preserve it as an essential value in itself, in our life and in the life of the next generations. DELPHICAPHOTO photo trekking are committed to transmitting the importance of small gestures of sustainability:
● respecting all forms of life and ecosystems as a whole;
● implementing responsible and non-destructive behavior;
● showing gratitude for what nature gives us continuously.
For these reasons, I support non-profit organizations and movements that share my same vision, including: Italia Gentile, Nature First, Leave No Trace, POW.

"I live in Switzerland where I attended a photography course with my first SLR, but I had never participated in a photographic trek. Despite the embarrassment I wanted to try. Ylenia immediately put me at ease, she guided me during the shots and helped me get rid of many stereotypes I learned. Thus I learned to bring out my way of seeing what I am surrounds and follow my instincts. Now I have become more confident in my abilities."
"I deal with design but as soon as I can I escape from Milan and go to the mountains. The idea of a photographic trek attracted me immediately and I wanted to test my new wide angle lens. Me Ylenia's competence in the technical field and her interpersonal skills, attentive to the needs of each participant, impressed. I was able to experiment with long exposures and, thanks to Ylenia's patience and explanations, I managed to get the shot I wanted."
"I took part in the photo trekking in autumn, after my divorce, when I rediscovered the pleasure of nature and photography that helped me overcome that period. Ylenia was very good at understanding my need for creativity and new experiences. She gave me a lot of ideas to take the photos I wanted against the light with unusual angles, using macro lenses for details. She showed me that a single ray of sunshine can create an enchanted atmosphere and my sensitivity can bring a landscape to life."
