Ciao a tutti!
I'm a professional photographer and film maker. I love combining style with both still and moving images - and great stories.
With regards the photography - I'm mostly interested in high fashion - although my fine art photography does get exhibited every now and again. My openings are always really crowded and fun - and the poor gallery owners don't know what to do to chuck everyone out way after the show is supposed to have closed...
I have just finished a fashiony, surreal, Fellini-esque movie, which was shot in black and white (on film, no less!) and dubbed into Italian... The film premiered at the Palm Springs International Film Festival and is now on the festival circuit - playing at the Taormina Film Festival in Italy, the MECAL festival in Barcelona and then at the Newport Beach Film Festival in the US.
I have written, directed and produced a number of works both for the big screen and the theatre, and am now also starting to compose movie scores. I studied classical piano back in the day, and music is a big passion of mine.
Just to keep myself out of trouble, I am also starting a new fashion line. A designer hot from Christian Dior/John Galliano haute couture in Paris is designing the line - an amazingly talented designer. The clothes are going to be red carpet hot. Beautiful clothes for beautiful people. Some haute couture and some pret a porter... And, of course, there is going to be a fabulous advertising campaign... I am currently in Europe - between London, Paris and Italy putting together the collection...
I'm always on the look out for new talent - either models or actors - both male and female - from any part of the world. I am based in Hollywood, CA but I travel a lot - both in the US and Europe - and speak lots of languages - so please feel free to get in touch. I love London, New York, Paris, Rome, and Tuscany where I grew up... one of the most beautiful places in the world.
Also - as a final note - I love horses and riding... I used to compete professionally in Europe and am a qualified trainer... Horses and fashion is just another one of those great combinations.... I am currently writing and arranging music for some international freestyle dressage competitions (called a Kur) - very interesting - and am about to record a number of symphonic pieces with the Prague Philharmonic.
