I was born in Torino in 1969. I approached to photography when I was very young and when i finished my studies I completely dedicate myself to images and comunication.
After spending a short period in Torino assisting some still-life photographers I moved to Milan and I got into the fashion world.
I started assisting,as a freelance,big fashion photographers working for very important fashion magazine and campaigns.
In 1997 I got my first important client and I did lots of bridals campaigns and magazine shooting.In the same time I started doing fashion shows in New york,London.Milan,Paris,Sao Paulo and Rio covering magazines like vogue japan,vogue china,vogue uk,elle uk and many others.
One of the things that attract me most are faces.For this reason I started working on a specific style and I did lots of portraits by using the ironic side of the people I portraited.I have done some adv campaign and calendars.
In the last years I have often travelled to asia ,central america and middle east doing photo report in China,Mexico,India,Nepal,Guatemala,Turkey,Kurdistan,Tibet publishing for PANORAMA,L’ESPRESSO,BMM,LABELMAG,LA REPUBBLICA,IL VENERDI,MAX ITALY
Since 2007 I collaborate with Peacereporter doing social and ethnic reportage in several depressed areas of the world.
In 2008 I won a prize as the best porfolio for the italian magazine “FOTOCULT”
