BIOGRAPHY
I grew up in the beautiful Northwestern region of Italy known as Piedmont, a land where nature shows its beauty in many different and changing ways.

First, there is the large and calm Po River, which crosses the widest plain in Italy, the Pianura Padana. This is a land of enchanted rural scenery. Then, the Monferrato and Langhe Hills, which emerge from the plains like wooded green promontories. Glacial lakes rest at the foot of the Alps and finally, there is the majestic Western Alps themselves, with 4000 meter peaks and untouched wild areas.

This is an area that offers infinite photographic subjects that I depict with a serene and intimate style. My favourite times to photograph are around sunrise and sunset, when light is at its best. I also choose times when unusual or harsh weather conditions contribute unique drama or mood.

My aim is to depict the innermost beauty of nature by focusing on the essential elements of pattern, texture, and colour, and to present strong compositions with haunting atmosphere and mood.

Thanks for dropping by, I hope you enjoy my pictures. For inquiries about buying fine art prints, the commercial use of my works, or for any other request about me and my photography please visit my personal website here,   where a larger selection of my photographs can also be found. UPDATE MARCH 11TH 2008   If you appreciate my works, well, you might also be interested in my newest book, just released. See all details here. --- You can also find a full preview of the book here.
