I was born on 14th February 1973 and I started shooting when I was 14 years old, with an old Agfa Optima Rapid 250 (a real piece of antiques). In 1990 I bought my first analogic reflex: a Yashika 270 AF, two handy all-purpose lenses and a tripod. With that equipment I approached the world of “true photography”, dedicating myself to landscape and then to macro photography, using close-up filters.
Later, being engaged in my medical studies, I put aside my hobby of photography for many years, until 2014.
That was when I decided to restart by buying first a Canon 700D and then, in 2016, a Canon 6D FF reflex.
My photographic genres have remained always the same: macro photography, that allows me to explore the natural microcosm with its flowers and insects, and landscape, which has led me to discover places of stunning beauty, many of which are stifled by urbanization, in Apulia and Basilicata, two regions of southern Italy.
Photography allows me to escape the stress of everyday life and to allow others to look at the world with different eyes. For me it is wonderful to be often alone in the middle of nowhere, under a sky of stars, on a cliff to immortalize a stormy sea or in the countryside to photograph a butterfly on a flower.
My passion for photography has led me to become director for the Macro & Close-Up section of the prestigious WePhoto Group and to participate in numerous exhibitions.
