Definitely a Renaissance Man!!
I was born in Milan in 1980 and I started my professional career after studying History of Art, always loving italian and american movies mostly from 70's, 80's and 90's, polaroids, strong personalities and obviously analogic photography.
Photography is my first passion and work (from 12 years) but it's only one of the several ways to express my creativity.
I love to paint (acrylics and watercolors), drawing (pencils and colors), writing, creating images (I am a great photographer but I can even organize the best styling if I want) plus I'm moving my fisrt steps into make up artistry (I find it strictly connecting with paintings).
Who knows what will be in the future... filmaking? At the moment it bores me... every photographer is doing now but ... let's see!
So I am always looking for models (not only classic beauties) to develop my ideas in one of these fields and trying new experimentations! This website is great cause it's an amazing source of inspirations, beautiful people and feelings, and this is the main reason cause I'm using it; I have already my agents and myself to make money... even if you can always ask my rates that are really approachable (but I don't usually do free shoots - sorry - but really no time!).
After saying that... I hope to hear from you all soon, for a talk, a confrontation or an exchange of ideas!!! Let's create together
Russian Vogue, Russian Harper's Bazaar, Elle Indonesia, Harper's BAzaar Indonesia, Maxim and many others are some example of magazines I have worked for; plus I have several covers for other magazines.
Recently I became director of the new Visionarios Magazine, a fashion art culture magazine entirely dedicated to illustrationa dn analog photography, take a look!!
I am agency represented both in Milan and LA
I don't pay models
I don't pay kit fees
Every pic you see on my portfolio is taken from ANALOGIC, blackandwhite prints or colour diapositives.... and there is NO RETOUCH, NO PHOTOSHOP
if you are a model with personality, charisma, and good skin you need just a great photographer, no pohotoshop!!!
This is my philosophy.
Please take a look at my website if you want to see other pics or have more information on my works....
