About me

Humanitarian Professional Photographer


I tell your stories...
let's start with few words about me

I’m an independent Humanitarian [NGO] Professional Photographer specializing in documenting cultures and exploring real and traditional ways of life. My interests are in subjects that focus on education, sanitation, women’s rights, children’s rights, labor conditions, undiscovered cultures, and ethnic groups in danger of extinction.
I graduated from my studies in Italy and held management positions at various ICT and telecommunication companies, managing international projects between Italy, the US, the UK, the Middle East, and India.

Over the past 12 years, I’ve dedicated my life to the world of documentaries and reportage coming in contact with situations very far away from the daily lives and comfort of Western consumerism. I’ve traveled and documented many areas of the world, from Asia to South America to Africa.

During the last years, I traveled to Myanmar, Cambodia, India, Bolivia, Kenya, Peru, Lebanon, Mongolia, China, Philippines, and Cameroon working with several NGOs among others UnicefSave The Children, France Parrainages, Virlanie, Humanility, Kya Cambodia, KMSS Myanmar, Caritas Myanmar, Missioni Consolata Onlus, Embolo Foundation.

My latest documentary was filmed in Brazil where I spent some weeks living in the Amazonian rainforest with the Yanomami tribe, one of the last uncontacted peoples left in the world. This project, made with the support and cooperation of two NGOs, resulted in various video productions and photo exhibitions being held in order to support the Yanomami in maintaining their way of life.

An emotion-seeking traveler, I have been moving across Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and South America since 2005. My work has been published in NGO projects, reports, documents, books, magazines, campaigns, and photography events. Among his most recent collaborations: UNICEF, Save The Children, Transparency International, France Parrainages, Condé Nast Traveller, and Vanity Fair.

I assist NGOs and humanitarian organizations in telling their stories [visual storytelling] and promoting their work through photography and documentary projects.

I also work as a Travel Photographer and I work as a Mentor and Tour Leader for various Organizations and Tour Operators to accompany groups of travelers and photographers on the field for Photo Workshops and Photo Travels. // Photo Travels and Workshops
