I started in photography after graduating in art history, these studies help me to create a style of my own and to understand photography from the point of view not properly technical but within the artistic and social context in which we live. I studied photography, completing these studies with monographic courses and workshops related to art, photography, creation and aesthetics. I taught as a photography teacher for five years. Currently, I work in my own studio, and I am especially interested in portraiture and social reporting. I alternate my own commercial work with more personal exhibitions of work. Today, with digital technology, I have seen expanded my creative efforts, continually seeking a balance between technology, creativity, design and sensitivity.
