I was born in North-eastern Italy to an old fashioned couple. My Mother, who was is in love with the sea, decided to hook up with my Dad who was in love with the countryside. This union created me, a complicated Pisces, in love with the sky and the clouds.
Photography was probably hidden in my DNA because my first experience with photography only came during university when, studying in Bruxelles in 2001, I became fascinated by some fashion pictures of the 60s. Then two years later whilst working in Paris, I met a group of young photographers and began exploring the beauty of the dark room.
My big breakthrough with photography, and my relationship with it, only happened in 2006 when I moved to London. The digital revolution was at its peak and I started to carry my camera everywhere with me so as not to miss an opportunity.
In 2009 and 2010 I experienced the thrill of being a professional photographer in the world of motorsport, providing pictures to media offices of teams and championships. Meeting different people in different situations every weekend gave me the chance of exploring unknown sides of my character and tastes.
After that I wanted to discover something more intimate and personal: portrait photography.
At the end of 2010 I studied Portrait Photography at Central Saint Martin’s College of Arts and Design in London which was a hectic and intense experience.
In 2011 I joined a group of professional fashion photographers and since then I have been seriously involved in various projects with artists, actors, designers, models, agencies and events such as London Fashion Week and the London Alternative Fashion Week.
Throughout this time I have continued to grow my passion for portraiture, in particular using flash outdoors and shooting strangers around the streets of London.
In 2013 I moved back to Italy, where I am currently based and where I am still exploring and developing my impulsive and passionate relationship with photography.
