I'm a freelance photographer, I'm a curious world explorer, travel photographer and storyteller, I deal especially in portraits and reportage, nature and landscapes, real estate and still-life.
I was born in Siena (Tuscany) and I rediscovered over the years the passion for photography that allows you to capture the time and transmit the soul that is inside everything.
I got my European Diploma in Photography at the International School of Photography and Visual Storytelling Apab-Alinari in Florence (Italy) where I studied moreover: "History of photography" with Emanuela Sesti, "Visual storytelling" with Roberto Malfagia and "Portrait" with Alberto Conti of the Contrasto Agency. I did my training alongside the landscape photographer Andrea Rontini.
My great love for nature and the mountains led me to study Natural Sciences and I was particularly interested in ecology, zoology, geomorphology and alpine flora.
I love trekking in the mountains and climbing – on the beautiful Dolomites, Alps and Grigne – and compete in road racing and trail running competitions.
I do research and I travel to learn, to meet new people and get to know new places, wherever something attracts my attention. and there is a story to tell through the camera lens. Every experience is an emotion to share with those who look at my photos.
I'm mainly interested in creating personal projects that explore particular aspects of life.
I love to combine different forms of artistic expression (e.g., poetry, music, dance) through photography. I myself write poetry and I love to draw. I play the piano and the guitar. So I love to collaborate with artists – as for this exciting text by the poet Luca Buonaguidi dedicated to the village of Spedaletto Pistoiese.
I use both digital and analog cameras. I like working with black and white film and I print photos in my own darkroom. I'm passionate about old cameras and I also experiment some ancient printing techniques, also on materials such as wood and fabric.
