born december 18th, year 1982.
seeing colors as a colorist from 2001.
watching through a camera from 1996.. eventually taking pictures.
watching video isn’t just getting what’s happening inside of the screen. there is a world of possibilities you have to choose in order to communicate and make the audience focus on whatever you want.
color grading is a comprehensive language you can use in combination with others at your advantage if your purpose is to communicate by all means.
color representation has its own rules, whose rules have to merge with good taste and classy choices.
color has been my profession since 2001, working for commercials as well as documentaries and feature films, surfing many trends and picking the right moods every time, discussing with people about how an image can be “premium”, “crunchy”, “tender”, “silky”, “tinny”, “liquid”, “gloomy” you know, talk is cheap..

passion for capturing images on silver halide was already well established in my family.
photography entered my life in 1998, when i had to change my scientific school for more appealing studies.
it took me a long time to understand what i wanted to take photos at, making it easy to have time to approach the production of images in a more technical than artistic fashion. i didn’t want to make my job out of photography, i didn’t know what to take photos at, i only knew i enjoyed my time spent on photography books, studying rules and learning how to communicate through images.
after a few years i found out my likings consisted of photography being closer to nature, avoiding human contamination when possible.
most of my photos comes from journeys and those were taken as i encountered nature, during long walks or quick strolls. creating your own style is something you do on a long time basis. mine is a narrow path i have been walking for many years, with tweaks and little adjustments, changing some equipment but always focusing on reaching the same result throughout the years. technically speaking, i used many cameras, but my choice always found hasselblad x-pan, fuji gw690III, and fuji x-100s. I am not losing time anymore on long photoshop sessions, as i prefer to create most of the look as i shoot, helping myself with filters. i only use lightroom to enhance the image contrast and saturation. whether you like it or not, i still really enjoyed every single moment in search of a good image in the wild.
