About me

Introduction Fascinated by the natural world since my childhood, I consumed books, watched many documentaries and traveled countless kilometers to enjoy it. This passion led me to a M.Sc. in Biology. Since I first borrowed my Dad's camera 20 years ago, I got hooked with photography and now it is my job. As I began showing my best shots around I realized the immense power images have to influence our imagination and inspire people with the issues of nature protection. I treasure this principle and always use my images to convey a message of conservation. It is hard to photograph wildlife in the habitat, but I want to be true. So I stay away from easy locations or captive animals, but strive instead to give a wild feeling with my photos, framing my subjects within a context. I never consider this as just a job. Preparation, commitment, experimentation, frustration and satisfaction flow together into something with no schedules or holidays: a lifestyle more than anything else. My work is published in magazines, books, calendars, etc. I won a few awards and traveled in 35 countries. In 2008 I moved to live beneath my beloved Apennines in Central Italy, to focus on the unique wildlife of this region
