Elia Locardi

Elia Locardi is an internationally renowned professional travel photographer, writer, public speaker and educator who spends his life shooting some of the most beautiful locations in the world. Location independent since March of 2012, he and his wife live a 100% mobile lifestyle, perpetually travelling from country to country, continuously circling the globe. Since he began travelling full-time in 2009, he has visited more than 40 countries and flown over one million miles.

Using a combination of traditional in-camera techniques, targeted times of day, and advanced post-processing methods, Elia has developed a widely recognized and highly unique style of travel photography. With each photograph, his goal is to share his vision so others can see the world as he does, full of colour, emotion, depth and texture.


Travel Filter Kit

Elia has chosen the three most popular filters used by photographers to create a kit ideal for travel photography. The two ND filters allow for long exposures of crowded cities while the graduated ND tames the bright sky. It’s a simple yet versatile collection that allows you to create many beautiful in-camera effects. The kit is available with glass or resin filters. The glass kit includes Firecrest ND 10 and 4 stops with a Firecrest ND Soft Edge Grad 0.9.

Kits include 3 filters, pouches/clamshells, the travel photography booklet and a holder system. Kits are available including the threaded adapter ring of your choice.


Firecrest Glass Filters

Firecrest is a multicoating applied to glass and is far and away the most technologically advanced filter manufacturing process on the market. Firecrest filters remove dyed resin from the manufacturing process. The Firecrest multicoating is a rare earth metal coating applied to the glass through an electrolytic process. Most importantly, Firecrest technology gives our chief scientist unprecedented control over modifying specific frequencies of the light spectrum. The result is hyper-neutral NDs, with tailored reductions of ultraviolet, visible spectrum light, near-infrared and infrared.

Elia has chosen the 4 stop ND for moderate lengthening of exposure time, ideal for waterfalls. The 10 stop ND is a long exposure filter ideal for clearing people from busy city centres and piazzas. Combined with 14 stops, these filters become true long exposure tools.


ND Grads

3 Stop Soft Edge Grad in Firecrest Glass

Soft Edge graduated filters transition gradually in density from the top of the filter toward the centre, and although there is a horizon line, it is subtle. This allows for horizon transitions to be more easily hidden in a scene, especially with an undulating horizon line such as mountains, buildings or trees. Typically graduated filters are used to enhance the sky by balancing the luminosity of the sky to the luminosity of the terrain. The 3 stop soft edge ND grad is our single most popular and versatile grad filter.
