About me:

In 2005, after a long career as a classical musician, I decided to turn my long love story with photography and with the Earth into my business. A BIPP Qualified Licentiate Landscape photographer, I love to travel our wonderful planet to portray it and share its beauty shooting Landscapes for my Fine Art Prints collection. I have been shooting in the American South-West, Scotland, Ireland, Isle of Man, UK, Italy, France and Turkey and my work has been exhibited and published internationally. A teacher for 20 years, I always have been passionate about sharing knowledge: teaching Workshop is the best way for me to share my enthusiasm for photography and for the Earth with like-minded people. When I am not in the field, I enjoy working on assignment, shooting mostly architecture and people.
