About your local photographerBorn in Florence, I inherited my father’s passion for travel and for photography so much so it became my profession. My travels began at the age of 9 (I have travelled on more than 130 expeditions all over the world) and have allowed me to develop a special sensitivity in my mind and heart allowing me to grasp reality in all its beauty and depth.
My photography is reportage - whether it be a trip, a wedding or a backstage event. My meetings with important international photographers has allowed me to grow and learn to photograph in relation to my subject. The advice and teachings of Steve McCurry on the study of light were valuable lessons and left an indelible mark on my way to shoot photography. For the last several years, my photography has been undergoing a new change under the influence of new photographers such as Paolo Pellegrin and his ways of telling stories, Ackerman and Sobol for their perception of reality.
I have been invited as a speaker on reportage photography and wedding photography in numerous events, seminars and workshops in Italy, in Spain, in UK and in Brazil.
In 2019 I joined the team of photographers of the National Geographic Expeditions.

These associations are some of the most important associations that welcome American and British photographers after careful screening and only select the best international photographers that shoot wedding photography in reportage style.
