"I admit I am
a photographer by chance – I bought my gear because I was passionated
not about photography in itself, but rather about observing wild
animals in their habitats. I’m not attracted by exotic settings and I
prefer to focus on Europe. I like hide photography, which gives you the
thrill of a face-to-face meeting with elusive species. I feel lucky to
live very close to the Po River Delta, where this kind of photography
is an extraordinary experience.”
I live and work in Ferrara.
I have a long-standing collaboration with the magazine Vita in Campagna,
as a photographer and author of articles on wildlife. In addition, I
collaborate with Italian and foreigner publishers in the environmental,
teaching, and free-time sectors. I'm collaborator of the Photographic Agency Getti Image.
