Photography is a passion born when I was a child. My father owned a compact Pentax, I often took it to take pictures. In truth I simulated the gesture, there was never a roll of film inside, I liked looking in the viewfinder, seeing the cut and focusing. That was enough for me. Passion became a profession very quickly, I started working in a photographic studio when I was only fifteen. In the summer I went out for ceremonies, I was an assistant: that’s when I learned most of the technique. In winter, however, immediately after school – I graduated from the Filiberto Menna Art Institute in Salerno – I helped out in the studio.
In particular, I was in charge of artisan black and white printing, a magic that bewitched me. Specializing in film language came after, even a little by chance, the urgency to replace a colleague, and indeed yes, apart from the considerable weight of the cameras of the time, shooting and editing immediately fascinated me. So what is evident is that in my training photography and videography, the study of light and composition, key elements of newly conceived wedding films, are intertwined.
