English BIO

Bio



Somewhere, I still save an old picture of me, four years old, sitting on the counter of the my uncles’ Photography Shop. Under its cover glass there were thrown together  tons of photographs, showing landscapes and family scenes. I also remember the dark room, hidden by a black velvet curtain, and the big chaos of people going to and fro, because that place was more a meeting point for everyone than a simple shop.


Probably, everything started there.


In 2009, I realized that Photography was more than a fashinating hobby, I wanted something more concrete. Later on, I began to study and practice Photography seriously, focused on my fave themes: Food and Live Music, but also working for public and private events. I’m also keen on Still Life and Light Painting.Since then, I’ve been working as a Photo-reporter for some webzines focused on Music (100 Decibel, GoldSoundz, Sound36), Culture&ShowBiz (SulPalco), Food (The Lunch Girls) and two Press/photo Agencies, PrimaPress and Luz Photo.

The English band The Kabeedies chose two photographs of mine to realize the cover of their album “Soap” and its first single “Eye” and I also worked on the educational project Bravìssimo (volumes 1, 2, 3) together with Casa Editrice Difuciòn.
