Italian photographer relocated in the Bay Area in the 2013. I started doing photography when I was very young with a film camera Olympus OM-10 that my grandma gave me for Christmas. I got addicted to the "click". I travelled all my life (Myanmar, Israel, Thailand, Cambodia, Europe, Cuba, Vietnam, Malaysia, Nepal, Korea, Mexico... and many many other places) and I recorded on different types of cameras and media all the emotions, landscapes and moments that I lived and the life of the people that I met. In the 2012 I did photographed the slaughter of dolphins in Taiji (Japan) as volunteer of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and in the 2013 I moved to the Bay Area where I am currently exploring all the opportunities to impress great moments and wonderful people on files or on a film.
I do open air portraits, studio sessions, location photography and street photography.
I like imperfections in my photos since life is impure and unpredictable. My ambition is to capture the magnificient blend of realism and romanticism that permeate the soul of any being. I am very fussy about the technical aspect of composition and exposure and my use of digital technology is only functional to the the photo and not viceversa.
The most challenging goal I am aspiring to is to generate an intense emotional experience for the viewers that could last even when they are no more in front of the print: a message, an emotion or simply goose-skin.
I graduated in professional photography at the New York Institute of Photography and I am frequently challenging myself in international photo competitions.
Then... something more personale about me...I love to spend time taking infrared photographs of landscapes or sailing in the San Francisco Bay with a mirrorless camera in my hand. I love cheese and pasta and I love enthusiast people.
