One of the advantages of being a freelance photographer is that you are always
asked to do different things. Perhaps this is what makes me always put so much
energy and enthusiasm in any work I'm commissioned to do.
Over the years, I have specialized in photos of people for advertising, fashion and
editorial portraits; however, this did not stop me from trying my techniques in
other environments such as social and travel reportage, still life or industry
photos.
I photograph show biz and sports celebrities as testimonials for advertising
campaigns for large international companies with the same respect with which I
photograph hippies in San Francisco or the Dogon of Mali.
I also have good experience in organizing photo shoots (budget management,
lights, location research, transfers etc.) and managing the professionals involved
in the production (make-up artists, fashion designers, models, assistants, etc.).
In the field of editorial work, I often like to find stories, create the conditions and
look for the people to photograph, both in my own country and abroad.
It is difficult to find something that may discourage me when I need to complete a
job.

photography. I live and work in Milan Read Less

Even before completing my studies in photography in Milan, in 1990 I began my
career as a portrait photographer for Radio DeeJay with which I worked for two
years. During that time I photographed many major international music stars .
Later I had the opportunity to exhibit the portraits of those musicians in several
successful exhibitions in Milan .
In the meantime I started to gain experience as a photographer for advertising
companies and agencies in Milan.
After several years of experience as a freelancer, in 1995 I joined the staff of
photographers at Marka, a photography agency from Milan for which I started
shooting fashion editorials, and specialized and travel reportages for various
Italian and foreign magazines. In 1998 Marka wanted to create its own collection
of stock images and asked me to organize and carry out all photographic
productions. In these years I produced about 80 photoshoots and several thousand of images.
Later I had occasional collaborations with the Dutch agency, Benelux Press and
the German agency, Zefa. During those years I gained valuable experience not
only as a photographer but also in production, casting, location research and photo editing.
In 2003 I was contacted by the Photonica image bank in London, with which I began a fruitful collaboration that lasted until the agency was acquired by the
U.S. Getty Images, with which I still collaborate.
Today I work for Italian and foreign advertising and media agencies, and I carry
out photo shoots for fashion, travel and specialized magazines. Read Less
