The best moment for me is when the photos create extraordinary stories. I love the moments in which the client expectations are exceeded, and my job gives a hint of what also happens outside the frame. Every photo for me is not just the portrait of something real. It has the potential to be a window for imagination, it creates a mood, triggers memories, emotions, and desires.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have worked a lot with architects and designers. Sometimes I've been asked to capture an aspect of the space that requires special attention. I like to go on a shooting ready for anything, that's why I always brief in advance with the clients to understand exactly what they have in mind and how to obtain the best results. Often this requires special equipment that I make sure to have with me during the shooting to optimize time and deliver the perfect picture.
