About me:

A Leica Ambassador and Leica Akademie Italy instructor, I come from a long career as a classical musician traveling around the world always with a camera on my side. Professional photographer since 2005, from 2010 I combined my passion for photography with my love for nature and the wilderness by dedicating myself exclusively to Landscape photography. With 20 years of teaching on my back, I firmly believe that Workshops are the best way to share my enthusiasm for photography and for the Earth’s beauty with like-minded people. During these years, I worked in the American Southwest, Scotland, Ireland, United Kingdom, France, Spain, Turkey and, of course, in Italy where I settled in 2014 after spending 15 years abroad. Associate of the prestigious British Institute of Professional Photography (ABIPP) and European Photographer (EP), my work has been published and exhibited internationally and is part of various private collections. When not around the world photographing, teaching or lecturing I spend my time printing my work and writing equipment reviews and articles about photography
