My approach to assignments
When I’m not working, I’m focused on social issues and human rights activities. My technical and travel background gives me a big understanding of the environment and this bring me to great quality to my work and to my organization of projects. I combine my travel experience and my personal approach to life with a situation before documenting it through my images. My images give the sense of my deep connection with the people I meet and a real understanding of the environment where they live.
What kind of photography can I do
I do love to catch “people’s faces” and make reportages as well as a mix of these two type of photography.
As a documentary and travel photographer I’m used to work in a lively and real setting where situations can change very quickly.
I’m very close to street photography concept applied to real, true life situations I find in each single location: from isolated Indian villages on the route from Delhi to Mumbai to African huts in the suburbs of Mombasa.
What kind of equipment I use
Right now for all of my works, portraits and reportages, I use Nikon D4 and Nikon D810 with battery grip. Regarding lenses I use Nikon and Sigma Lenses: Nikon AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8 G ED, Nikon AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8 G ED VR, Sigma 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 AF II DG HSM, Sigma 100-300mm f/4 DG EX HSM. Everything else together with a Nikon SB-901 flash, Filters and accessories I need for my work, inside my Tamrac Expedition 9x.
Do I write text accompanying my images?
I do love to write about my travels, reportages and life experiences. I cooperate with some magazines for articles and dossiers. You can take a look to my blog. All of my images are accompanied by short texts for captions. I can also record interviews.
Image post production
With my past and my technical backgrounds in digital design and research & development companies, the post production is in my chords with Photoshop and Lightroom helping my creativity.
Customers’ uses of my images
My Customers use my images for a wide range of purposes and media, such as advertising pages, magazines, annual reports, books, internal communication.
My focus is on subjects like education, sanitation, women rights, children rights, working conditions, traditional way of life, undiscovered cultures and ethnic groups in danger of extinction.
Normally I live and work in Turin travelling often to London. Turin Airport is very close to my home and Milan Malpensa airport is only 100Km far away. I can say that the entire planet is at my disposal!
