Francisco Negroni is a Chilean photographer who’s passionate about nature, especially the mix of storms and volcanic eruptions. Capturing the wild and spectacular moments of nature is an unexpected choice for him, as he first studied advertising photography and tourism. But, after witnessing a volcanic eruption the Chilean photographer developed a certain obsession with volcanoes.

Since then, he keeps eye on coming eruptions to be able to go there and document these magical moments. He always travels light, with just a backpack, a computer, a camera and a tripod.

His work has been spotted by media and press agencies around the world, who call on him to join his quests. In fact, some of Negroni’s photos have already been published in many international media such as National Geographic , and they have been distributed by photo agencies such as Associated Press, Reuters, Terra or AFP.

Opaque smoke plume, fiery lightning and lava flows are the three basic ingredients of Francisco Negroni’s volcanic images. The unleashing of nature has become the photographer’s muse and he never tires of shooting such moments, mixing incredible danger and sumptuous beauty.
