Aged fourteen I developed my camera films and I printed my photos in black and white in my family bathroom.
In 2009 (33 years later) I bought my first “serious” digital camera and I started learning how to post-process digital photos (Photoshop and Lightroom).
I enjoyed it a lot, it was like being back in my dark room printing my photos!
I love photographing people and make them comfortable in front of the camera, but at the beginning it was not easy, I did not know where to start.
So I started reading books, manuals and watching video-tutorials.
I rented a big room, bought backgrounds, flashes, soft-boxes and I asked colleagues and friends if they wanted a photo shoot!
So little by little I got more confident and I improved. The feedback was so good and I got more and more involved.
During these years I've enjoyed photography of many different kinds, head-shots (also corporate head-shots for about 400 colleagues), families, babies and newborn, concerts, food, travel, conferences (photos and videos), sport, weddings etc.
I can say that I have reached a very good degree of confidence that allows me to fully enjoy the photo sessions and to communicate this relaxed status to the people in front of my camera.
