Bio

I am a professional photographer based in London.

Born in Turin (Italy) in 1964 and after a technical education, I started as a professional photographer in 1989.  My passion for photography began at the age of 15 when my father gave me my first single lens reflex as a Christmas gift.  After so many years I can still say that the encounter with the camera has been love at first sight…

During a 27 year career, I have been commissioned to shoot for a diverse range of clients including fashion stylists, museums, hotels, government agencies, art galleries, restaurants, publishing and theatre companies around the world.

My first exhibition was at the Columbus Centre in Toronto in 1997 with a mix of landscapes and portraits. In 2017 I returned home to Italy, exhibiting in Genoa, with a collective of other photographers focusing on the human form.

Although specialising in interior, fashion, food and still life photography, I have covered many diverse fields of imaging and have a proven track record of quality output, however challenging the assignment.

As well as technically and artistically adept I also offer exemplary levels of integrity, thereby ensuring complete satisfaction for every engagement.

What we bring to the table?
