BIO
I became interested in photography thanks to my father. When I was a boy, I was fascinated looking at him, when in the armchair he checked his equipment and cleaned the lens.
We often went on trips in Italy or abroad and when coming back, as soon as possible, we projected our slides on the screen. It was a family practice to live beautiful memories.

In 2000, I started my collaboration with a friend of mine, the owner of a photography studio. This completely changed my perspective: I started learning with him and perfecting my abilities.
Later I examined in depth my passion attending workshops with some the most famous experts, such as Ivano Bolondi, Pino Ninfa ed Ernesto Bazan. Since 2008, I’ve been interested in pinhole photography. Nowadays I’m working with a professional Nikon equipment, although I usually uses films as well, especially pinhole cameras (Zero 2000 6×6 and a Zero 6×9 Multi Format camera, using both a black and white and a color film).

My favourite subject is nature in all its forms. Sea is the most fascinating element for me: I’m attracted by its beauty and size, its silence when it’s flat and its thunderous roar when it’s stormy.
Another theme, which is often present in my photographs, is trees, I like walking through forests alone.
I always look for the beauty in the environment that surrounds me. I keep trying to instil a “sense of grandeur”, of immensity, in my way of photographing.
This is currently my main goal.
