I’ve been asked to write down my c.v. and I don’t know where to start. Maybe because it’s been more than 30 years working as a photographer, maybe because I have always been here and there: from Studio’s Manager Assistant to Producer, but never leaving the camera behind.

As a photographer, I have worked in many different fashion related areas: beauty, portraiture, journalist report… Always trying to give the personal touch making the picture unique, capturing the essence of the moment, of the person, or of whatever concept on which I am working.

I make good pictures, and not so good ones, but at the end of the day I always come back with an image, the best for each situation. And that’s very satisfying. However, the important part of my job for me is the human experience and working in a team. Because of that, I would like to take the oportunity to thank everybody I have worked: clients, assistants, makeup artists, stylists, hair stylists, art directors, copywriters… Because together we made all these images come to life. Really I would like to give special thank you to the protagonist of the phot shoots: models, singers, actresses, footballers, physicists, cooks, “handsome boys” and “beautiful girls”, artists, grandparents, children, etc … Thank you for your pacience and involvement in every single project!

A photo session is for me always a challenge, and the best of it is when you accomplish it by making it positive experience for all the team.

I hope you enjoy these selected collections of our work.
