FORMATT-HITECH FEATURED ARTIST | LEICA AMBASSADOR | ABIPP EP

 

SL_01336_bn.jpg

A musician by training and a self-taught photographer, I am a Leica Ambassador, Leica Akademie Italy instructor and Formatt-Hitech Featured Artist, as well as Qualified Associate of the British Institute of Professional Photography (ABIPP) and European Photographer (EP).

After a two-decades long career as a solo artist in classical music, since 2010 I moved from interpreting a musical score to interpreting the world’s most spectacular landscapes through my camera: combining my lifelong passion for photography with my love for nature and the wilderness. I decided to dedicate myself exclusively to Fine Art Landscape photography.

With 25 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. My favourite destinations are Iceland, Scotland, Spain, England, the American Southwest, Turkey and, of course, Italy where I settled in 2014 after living 15 years abroad.

My work has been published and exhibited internationally and is part of various private collections. When I am not around the world photographing, teaching Workshops, lecturing or adjudicating competitions, I work on my photographs, prepare my Fine Art prints and write reviews and articles about photography.
