What sets my work apart is my ability to capture people in a revealing and genuine manner, along with a strong sense of style, technical chops, and attention to detail. I describe my work as candid, and honest. Sure, I’ll do the posey stuff and make sure we stage the important shots, but I know that the “real moments” are those that the client will love the most. I love getting to know new people and situations, capturing the emotions and the interactions to create beautiful heirloom-quality photographs they will absolutely love.
What I love most about my job is being able to express myself visually in a creative way, because I have always been a very visual person and would rather let my images speak for themselves rather than through words. Creating something completely from scratch is immensely satisfying. I also enjoy the problem-solving aspect of photography. For me, being a photographer is a right-meets-left-brain profession. I am constantly tapping into my creative and analytical sides when shooting. I also enjoy the relationship that I build with clients, knowing that I captured beautiful images that they'll cherish forever.
My field of specialization is automotive photography, food photography, portraits and events. My efforts to understand customers' needs and my ability to translate them into images is what my customers always appreciate about me. The way I use light to shape the surfaces in car and food photography and the way I am able to make people really stand out in portraits and events: that's what defines me as a professional photographer.

I was based in Milan, Italy, when my photo agency sent me here to NYC to cover the 2012 US elections. That's when, together with my wife we fell in love with this amazing city, NYC, and we decided to move here from Italy. It's been 4 years and I'm still deeply in love with both, my wife and this amazing and challenging city!
