Canon Ambassador Alessandro grew up with a camera in his hands. His father, the late Armando Trovati, was a long-time Associated Press photographer who covered professional skiing and founded the Pentaphoto agency. "My father was, and still is, my inspiration," Alessandro reveals. "I use my photography to try to excite and attract as many people as possible to the world of sport. I love sport in all its forms, dimensions and disciplines. I'm attracted to the new challenges and technologies sports photography brings. Above all, I love working with the great champions of sport."
