Creating images of food, still life, commercial, portraits and weddings.
Nice to meet you.
I was born and raised in a beautiful island, Sicily, destination of many historical writers from all over the world. An island where the light and the art embrace you all the year.
I have start taking photos many years ago, initially for fun, when my father gave me a 35mm film camera, a Yashica FX-3, in my small hands. I was eight years old. I still have it in my studio, in full working condition.
I was not born in the photography business: I started by myself and from scratch six years ago.
Since then I did not stop studying and improving my skills.
I am crazy about food. Food and advertising let me go through different points of view, study the object that stands in front of my camera, allowing me to experiment with colours, shapes, texture, composition and, of course, light.
Like almost every Italian people I am friendly, down-to-earth and sometimes funny!
I am curious, eager to learn. I like to learn from people I meet, and I love to give them something back.
I love working in team for a common goal. I always do everything in my ability to reach it working together.
Working in studio with artificial light or outdoor, with natural light, it does not matter.
I have successfully worked in collaboration with creative agencies, wedding / event planner and destination management company with international clients, in breath-taking locations.
I have crafted creative and unique images for the web and printed campaigns for various clients, often working independently and on my initiative, in order to achieve the best visual result.
My visual style always reflects the target market and the client needs in terms of visual message, mastering composition and light to sculpt the scene and the subject.
I am looking for new challenges and my main goal is to further improve my skills in a new country and culture as an integral part of a successful team.
