About me

2936_1125208980619_548972_n.jpg

I'd say I take pictures since I was a kid, buy nowadays everybody does, so this is not very meaningful.

Before being a photographer, I had a career in visual design and motion graphics, something that was collaterally bound to photography: light, colors, geometry, point of view and taste. Maybe this helped me discovering the camera as an instrument to produce something visually pleasant.

In 2018 it's ten years I'm a professional photographer.
And I always feel I have lifelong things to learn. Every day, every step I take in this world improves the way I see the world around me and makes my photography grow. And this is done by watching good photography and reading great masters books. If you want to get somewhere, you have to learn from the best. That's what I tried to do till today.

I love smiles, animals, rock climbingwinter sports, and cinema.
