Can you tell us a little about you?

I am a Franco-Italian photographer based in London. I was born in France and grew up in a

bilingual family. I have travelled to many countries throughout my life and my passion for

travel came with my love for imagery and photography. I first started to photograph

landscape and architecture. Then, I photographed people and their emotions. I have now

built a business around my passion for photography. I am a part-time professional

photographer and my work has been recently recognized by Vogue Italia.

Photography has become a real passion, a skill that I have mastered. It is a way for me to

express my creative energy.

 

Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.

I mainly focus on Fashion black and white photography. I’m fascinated with the range of

shades of grey and the different contrasts between black and white. I strive to keep a classy,

elegant and sharp style.

 

Where do you get inspiration from?

I get inspiration from my daily life, magazines and social media.

 

Think you in advance what you want in the picture?

A good photographer needs to have a keen sense of style and strive to keep inspiration

flowing.

 

What do you think of our new magazine?

I really appreciate the idea of promoting new artists, from photographers, models, stylists to

make-up artists. I believe that the arts scene is in need of new fresh perspectives.
