I love distant places, exotic animals, and people of different culture.
Traveling around the world and taking pictures to share, this is my passion!
If I had to choose an "official" definition, this could be nature and travel photographer. But I love to consider myself as an adventurer with a camera. Photography is the mean to save and share memories of my travels and my passions. Yes, to travel is not my only passion and beside photography I love tu running, cycling and climbing. I love running long distances my record is 92km (yes, km, I'm Italian and I'm not familiar with miles) with something like 5.000m elevation gain from Courmayeur to Chamonix. Good isn't it?
I started photography at 10 or so, but I stopped completely when I was about 30 years old. After a few years, I started over and here I am: lost in photography.
I like to enter photo competitions and sometimes I had the chance to be awarded.
In 2014, I had my moment of glory when one of my photo received an honorable mention at the Oasis Photo Contest, one of the most important international photo competitions for nature photographers and this photo was published as the cover of the OASIS magazine in December 2014 .
I speak English, French, and of course Italian (and some words of spanish and other languages). This make simple for me to travel and I traveled a lot throughout Europe, North and Central America, India and most African countries, always on my own and curious.
I also had volunteering experience at Kimbondo, a pediatric hospital that is also a refuge for orphans and disadvantaged near Kinshasa, in RD Congo in 2012.
I try to exploit my experiences by raising funds to help some kids to study, especially in Congo and Uganda. For this purpose I occasionally participate or arrange projections of photographs and videos of my travels.
