I was born in 1958 in Motta di Livenza, where I live and work. I graduated in Economics and Commerce at the University of Trieste. Since I was young, I have been into nature and landscape photography.
I started taking photos at the age of 10 with a rented photo camera and only after obtaining my scientific high school diploma, I was gifted my first reflex, which I still own and treasure fondly.
I therefore started photographing in the analogue era and at that time I used to use slides and print in black and white at night in my bathroom to save on development and print costs.
Since the very beginning the use of slides forced me to pay much attention to framing and exposure, for when the picture was taken, it was not possible to correct or modify it.
The era of digital has surely made photography easier, but my way of doing it has not changed. I still pay much attention to framing, exposure, depth of field and check backgrounds and blur because I do not like post producing my pictures.
What are the genres I like the most? Those connected to nature, in every aspect.
Since I was a child, following my father to work I had the chance to visit the Treviso countryside and more, therefore nature played an important role in my passion for photography.
I remember spending hours taking photos of flowers, cows and butterflies, or the colours of rusted sheets or farming tools.
I have always loved nature in all its forms: from animals to landscapes, from flowers to natural elements, such as water, air, the sun, the moon, day and night, the warm tones of fall colours or the perfection of a bird plumage – all this still amazes me.
I think photography is emotion! For those who shoot it and those who see it.
I strongly believe photography is a way of catching a moment, documenting its beauty and its endless evolution.
I took part in collective and personal exhibits in Italy and abroad, receiving widespread acclaim, and I have been also invited to present my works at evenings dedicated to me.
My pictures have also been included for free in calendars for charitable purposes and are present in many private galleries.
