About




I am an Italy based photographer interested in portraiture, fine art and fashion photography.
I still don’t know why I bought my first Reflex Camera, but I’m glad I did. From that point onwards, photography became not just a great passion, but also the main focus of my life.
Much of my work reflects a connection with dance.
That is obviously present in stage performing shoots, but also it is possible to find a trace of it in my personal artwork, because I have studied ballet from the age of 7 and have continued to do so throughout my life.
Photographing dance and dancers is challenging but I find that it comes naturally and pleasurably to me.
In addition to ballet, I gain pleasure and have extensive experience photographing all aspects of the performing arts, including film stills, drama and music.


Available for commissions and freelance’s jobs.
I also do weddings: if you are interested, feel free to contact me and I will send you my ceremony’s portfolio.
