About Photographer

June 20, 1980, lives in Positano. I approached the photography for “guilty” of my partner, who was interested in the visual and plastic arts. It was just a game, but very pleasant and congenial. I am attached to the middle and love with the idea of being able to express, to express myself, to be able to leave a message. The key moment was the meeting with one of the Norwegian masters of photography: Morten Krogvold and his life partner Tarand. Were longtime customers of the restaurant where I worked. For two weeks Morten has starred as “Pablo Neruda” in the movie with Massimo Troisi, “Il Postino”. Two weeks in which he took me by the hand and enchanted me with his lectures on color and shape, talking about Kandinsky, light and composition. After a while I left the job at the restaurant and I launched a full training following seminars, workshops dedidicarmi to “writing with light.” After a few years I created Arkimedia Lab with Antonio Casola (Web Designer), an agency that deals with visual communication. In January ’09, I get a publication in National Geographic Italian, then El Pais up to win the competition organized by Nikon in 2010. I graduated from Advanced Color Correction Class Dan Margulis and then the Masters in Photography at the IED of Milan by Silvia Lelli.
