I love making images.
I truly enjoy the constructive process of building up an image starting from an idea, breaking it in a problem solving game made of small and big steps to take in the right sequence as a way to simplify complexity.
I like variety in my work, lighting, not the subject, is the common theme, precisely lighting a face and a scene for a portrait to depict character and an expression or making sure that reflections and transparencies are rich, refined and luxurious in a product.
I started out mostly working as an ADV photographer with a special interest in still life but learnt through passion and experience to transfer the lighting skills to other subjects. Light fascinates me immensely and is what draws me every day to try and look at things with a fresh and analytical eye. Flash, sun or moon, tungsten, led, fluorescent, candle I love playing with light and study it's behavior. I define my lighting as contrasted, sculpted, defining and motivated
From squashing, squeezing, sweeping or pouring make up products to working with Talent or fantastic models and large teams on fashion shoots I make pictures with dedication, interest, curiosity, experience and professionalism.
I have been doing photography professionally since 2000 and can't imagine doing anything else.
Said that I am developing an interest and learning as much as possible about cinematography.
When I am not in the studio I try to be the best husband and dad I can be, a life long refining and adapting process
I ride my bike(s) 6 days a week when I can, road or mountain bike, up or downhill, as long as it has pedals will go. Skiing and alpinism are other great passions of mine but they are mostly relegated to holidays for geographical reasons. Recently Fly fishing for trout on small streams has joined my list of slightly unusual interests.
I like building things, love cooking and with my family we try to grow vegetables in our garden... with mixed results so far.
