"I wanna know if you can see Beauty even when it is not pretty every day."
- The Invitation by Oriah
Based in Reggio Emilia - Italy, now wandering around.
Previously: Los Angeles - U.S. (2013-2016), Milan - Italy (2010-2013).
My first approach with photography happened in a theater. I started shooting my actor friends during plays and performances and I went on for years, until I became a published theatrical photographer in my region, Emilia Romagna (Italy).
In 2010 I moved to Milano to achieve a bachelor in Communication, Media and Advertising (Iulm University) and I graduated in 2013, with Gianni Canova as supervisor, with a dissertation on Michel Gondry, Wes Anderson, David Lynch and Tarsem Singh's cinematographic and advertising works.
Attracted by different cultures and places, I soon started traveling all around Europe and specialized in Street Photography, which leaded me to different publications and exhibitions. During 2011-2012 I worked as professional Nikon photographer in Sardegna (Sardinia) for the agency Digiphoto in Calaserena Village as family and children photography. In 2012 I officially became reporter for the Art Section of Rolling Stone Italia Magazine.
Two months after graduation, I moved to Los Angels to attend the TV&Cinema Producing Certificate Program at UCLA (University of California Los Angeles). In L.A. I fully immersed myself in headshot, fitness, portrait and lifestyle photography, working with multiple renowned actors, dancers, athletes, entrepreneurs and celebrities in the vibrant Hollywood scene. During the same years in California, after beginning my health and fitness journey, I finally stepped in front of the camera after 7 years spent working behind it and became published model as well.
