Sergio Pitamitz is an Italian travel and wildlife photographer, currently based in Varese, Italy where he works as staff photographer at Latitudes Magazine, and is represented by Corbis and Getty.

Sergio, at that time represented by SIPA Press, was the first Western photographer to gain permission from the Iranian government to photograph in Shiraz, the lost city of Bam and Persepolis. His wildlife photographs have been awarded semi-finalist recognition at the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2008.

His images have been published in Le Figaro Magazine, Newsweek, Conde Nast Traveller, Travel & Leisure, Geo and various publications of the National Geographic Society.

His website is categorized in themes not in countries, but I chose this image of a couple in Buenos Aires dancing the tango as one of the most striking.
