About gioyhofer

I was born in Pieve di Cadore (Italy), in the famous Dolomiti. My innate passion for astronomy and nature, takes me in 2009 to become a member of Cortina Astronomical Association, since then I started photographing the sky along with the beautiful landscapes that surround it, finally realizing what's my true passion. In 2014 I attended the fifth international competition TWAN and I win the first prize in the category "Against the lights". In 2015 I've made entirely the astronomical calendar for the Italian magazine "Nuovo Orione"
