About Us


Hi - We are Gianfranco Calcagno and Irina Nikolova and we would like to welcome you to DPTips-Central.com ! If you are interested in photography , you have come to the right place.

We are both passionate photographers but approach the subject from different perspectives which we hope will also come across in the resources on our site.

For Gianfranco, his camera has been his third eye ever since he can remember and he has been professionally involved with photography over the past 10 years covering a variety of jobs such as photojournalism, celebrity shoots, location work, wedding photography and portraiture work.

Irina on the other hand, is a keen digital photography enthusiast. She finds photography an exciting hobby taking her away from her professional work in finance, allowing her to unleash her creative side and have lots of fun in the process.

We have been running DPTips-Central.com since 2008 offering a friendly resource for photographers of all levels who want to improve their photographic skills, share their photos, and learn more about the art and technique of photography.

Again, welcome to DPTips-Central. We hope you enjoy the site, have fun taking pictures and visit us often!

Irina and Gianfranco
Co-founders, DPTips-Central.com
