In 1976, after “playing” with his first camera, a Mamiya C330, developing and printing black and white photographs for simple pleasure, he entered his future profession as assistant to one of the most well-established fashion and advertising photographers of those years, Manfredi Bellati.
He was thus able to gain first-hand experience of the atmosphere of the production and services for the editorial offices of Mondadori, Condè Nast, Rizzoli and Rusconi.
In 1980, he began his career as a professional photographer.
His favourite field is portraiture.
He has worked for several monthlies (like Class, Gentleman, Luna, Max, For Men, Maxime) and numerous weeklies (Grazia, Confidenze, Donna Moderna, Gioia, Sette, Specchio, Ventiquattro, Sportweek, Famiglia Cristiana, Vanity Fair, just to mention the main ones), working on their articles and producing many cover photos.
He has this to say of his profession: “The extraordinary thing it has given me in the past and continues to do now is the pleasure of learning about and reporting the stories of people, of traveling and describing places, which is a gift beyond price for me!”.
