I was born in Ravenna in 1959 and have been interested in nature photography since 1978, the year I bought my first camera.

Over the course of my career I have established collaborations with the main newspapers and publishers in the naturalistic sector, including the following magazines: Oasis, Geo, Focus, Tutti Fotografi, Natura and some magazines of the Mondadori group.

Over the years my images have obtained numerous awards in photographic competitions including the victory of the FIAP Fotonatura Team World Cup in the 2006, 2012, 2016, 2018, 2020 editions and the Fiap gold medal for the 2014.

Since 2012 I have been in the organizing committee of Nature inPhoto, the Naturalistic Photography event held in Marano Lagunare (UD).

In 2013 I was granted by the FIAF the honor AFI (Italian Artist Photographer) for the merits acquired.

My images are made in nature and try to capture the most salient moments in the life of animals.

To get the best results I combine the knowledge of animal ethology with the photographic technique and the use of special equipment, always keeping in mind the main rule; “Stealing only the images from Nature”
