A little about me:
I was born in a little village close to Florence, Italy. I developed a taste for the visual arts surrounded by the beautiful renaissance vestiges, mansions, statues, paintings, and much more. I have been involved with photography since my attendance at the high school of Arts.
After studying in philosophy and history at the University, and then working 7 years as a Financial Adviser in a bank. I decided to follow my call, and to transform my artistic passion in life.
I have travelled across Europe working as an event photographer in all the major film festivals, and began my experience in every aspect of photography. After 6 years travelling across Europe, and a couple of awards gained in travel’s photography category; I came back to Florence to open my Studio and made my Mum happy by “settling down”…
Of course it didn't work for very long… following my passion I have experimented with new areas of photography; weddings, portraits (corporate, family, kids), and modeling. I started an “Event Company” with a business partner, bringing into the company an experience built through years spent covering many important cinema’s related events. In the meantime, I have also developed my skills in Photo-editing, getting certifications from Adobe (Photoshop), Nik's software and Wacom.
Going through all these experiences, I discovered that the kind of photography that I love more are portraits… I found out that kids are special because of their spontaneity, when you are able to catch it; however every person has a story to tell, and my job is to grab a sparkle of that story and put it into a picture… when this happens, the results are forever.
Quoting Karl Lagerfield “What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce”.
My work has been published in Fashion and Women's magazines, like Vogue Bambini and Diva e Donna among many others, and I won some more awards listed below. However after 11 years in photography, and 6 with my studio I needed something to ignite my passion, and Australia has been my “something”… I arrived 2 years ago, and I have setup my studio 6 months later, since then, I have been so lucky to work with many families with kids, doing what I love to do, inspired from this wonderful country, and the lovely people that I met here in Sydney.
After all these years, I have realized that a photo, a good photo, is forever. Every new Ipad, big screen tv, or new, cute little Louis Vitton purse are all things good for today, but won’t be around tomorrow. Let me help you build up those special memories, that you will cherish forever.
