Ciao! and welcome to my blog!
A little about me: I’m a photographer in Redondo Beach, Los Angeles. I was born in Pavia, 20 miles south of Milan, Italy. My dad is an Italian graphic designer, my mom is French-American. I have a little accent when I speak though it is often quite hard to place. Although photography has always been my passion, it’s not always been my career. I have a PhD in philosophy and I was an academic for ten years. I wrote a pretty successful book on why LEGO is a platonic toy and then I felt I was done with academic constraints: I embraced photography as my new career and haven’t looked back since. According to my clients, my background gives me a peculiar eye and the ability to quickly turn their ideas into visual concepts.What I know for sure is that my personality and my studies have given me a strong passion for all things human: I love getting to know the uniqueness of each client and to meet the challenges brought by each and every project, be it a portrait, a commercial shoot or a print that someone will hang in their living room. I love burritos, yellow shoes and fancy shirts, and whenever I am not working you can probably find me and my girlfriend in our Mustang somewhere in the Southwest chasing the next sunset.
Why do I want to start a blog in 2021? Well, because I want to share a little more than social media would allow me to. I want to ramble a bit more, I want to tell funny stories, I want to share what’s behind my photos. Also, I want to give you tips, explain how I do what I do, and most of all, I want to find a better place to spend some words about the amazing people I get to meet in my work.: the people who are on my side of the lens, and those other side of the lens.Why do I want to start a blog in 2021?

No matter what they tell you, photography is not a solo journey. And that’s probably the very first reason why I am traveling down this road. So please, let this blog be an invitation, a ticket to ride with me and into my shots.
