I love photography because it allows me to express myself and my creativity. When I take photos I feel happy and I could not imagine my life without taking photos. Photography infuses my life with joy.
  • How I discovered photography:
  • My Equipment
  • My achievements

Since I was a child, I always had a propensity for art, in fact I loved to draw and because of this I attended the Fine Art Institute. During those years I started studying photography and I realized that this was the path I wanted to take. So, immediately after graduating, I enrolled at the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples, where I was able to continue my artistic career.

My interest in photography was born during my studies thanks to the professor of my course, who gave me all his passion and pushed me to buy my first camera. When I attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples,I started to have a more creative approach to photography.

I use an Olympus OMD EM5 mark II mirrorless camera with pro lenses, my favorite is the zuiko 12-40mm pro, I love the 45mm for portraits and 7-14mm for landscapes.
I also use various tools for light painting such as the “light painting brushes” of which I am an ambassador. I have a lot of them and I have a big collection with light swords, fiber optics, plexiglass and flashlights.
