I am a commercial and editorial photographer based in Atlanta, Georgia. The youngest of four kids in a military family, there were five stamps in my passport by the time I was five years old. My father retired from the air force just before I entered kindergarten and we moved to North Florida where life became more predictable. A few years later, I began to take pictures (mostly of my pets and friends) with my mom’s point-and-shoot to entertain myself and also because I loved going to K-Mart where I could sit at the counter and talk to people while waiting for my prints to shuffle out of the machine. my work is a combination of storytelling and portraiture, often with a focus on social issues. My roots are in the American south and I am as passionate about doing work here as any other place in the world. I am a Spanish-speaker (also fluent in non-verbal communication) and have worked extensively in central and south America, Europe, and Asia.
I’m a lifestyle and portrait photographer from Italy, currently residing in Los Angeles. As a young boy I had a colorful vintage 1960s map of the United States above my bed. Each main region was represented with a little sketch or figure, very detailed, and I had dreams that one day I was going to be there and discover all those places myself. My passion for visual arts encouraged me to study graphic design and work as web designer in Italy. The opportunity became reality in 2002 when I moved from Italy and my journey started in San Francisco. In few years I ended up in various circumstances in the city of Angeles. The multicultural environment, the vibrant lifestyle and the excitement for embracing this new adventure of life has been my motivation for taking photographs. A passion I cultivated since I was a young teenager and has transformed my life and career. After lot of training and experience, I consider myself very fortunate.

I didn’t plan to be a photographer when I was a kid – I thought I’d be a veterinarian, an ad man on Madison Ave (hello, Don Draper!), or an astronaut. You know, the usual. But, I picked up a camera while in the army, and the rest, as they say, is history. My photography resume is long and diverse – at different times, I have been a conflict, newspaper, sports, lifestyle, fashion, portrait, feature and food photographer. I have lived and worked in NYC, LA, Miami, DC, Phoenix, Harrisburg, PA, and for the last 11 years, Charlotte. All of these locations and experiences through my career have shaped my perspective. I capture real moments, tell rich stories, and make people and products look great for brands, magazines and ad agencies. My work is real, relatable, honest and authentic. Whether everyday people or hired talent, I have a natural ability to make people comfortable in front of my lens. We have fun on my shoots, I don’t yell, and, on the best days, we eat NC BBQ. I live with my wife and 3 rescue dogs on an acre within the Charlotte city limits that we bought (mostly) for the dogs. When not out shooting, you can usually find me working on personal projects, or exploring a new hobby, or fly fishing for anything that swims. Some fun facts about me below – the rest you need to learn for yourself. So, let’s work together! • I drink a LOT of iced tea and there will always be some on set • I was a Paratrooper in the US Army and have over 75 jumps • I have seen every episode of Law and Order (go head, challenge me!) • I will travel almost anywhere, anytime to eat BBQ • Every fish I catch is released alive to live another day • I have counted over 25 species of birds at our yard feeders • I hiked over 700 miles of the Appalachian Trail in one trip

My obsession with photography dates back to elementary school when I discovered that the camera could carry some weight on the playground. Our house had a darkroom which was not ventilated. The fumes, together with the Stones, Dylan and Abba were intoxicating. It’s no wonder I spent most of my childhood there. After 40+ years of shooting, my relationship with photography is healthier than ever. I work to balance commercial assignments, personal work and pro bono work. I have begrudgingly lived through the transition from film to digital. If I ran for president, my platform would be the world needs fewer, better photographs and I would heavily fund the ‘slow photography’ movement. Putting my time where my mouth is, I have adopted a forgotten photographic process, the photogravure, and am deeply diving into its preservation. Hilary is very supportive of my photogravure obsession. So much so that even when she can’t sleep, she asks about it…
