I am a professional photographer based out of Hollywood. I studied photography at the prestiges Art Center College of Design in Pasadena California. While studying started working with magazines such as Detour, Health, Health and Fitness magazines, Hollywood Reporter, to name a few. After graduation started doing advertising work for clients such as Disney, BBC, Comedy Central and many Fashion Designers in NYC and Los Angeles area.
Making the move to NYC after the horrible events of 911. Started shooting fashion shows and Fashion work for clients. By chance started doing production stills for a tv show Brindiamo! that featured Italian restaurants in NYC, Washington DC, italy.. from production stills to becoming a director for the show as the show expanded and traveled and worked with michelin star restaurants in italy to cruise ships that sail the atlantic ocean.
I have photographed many celebrities over the years such as .. jay leno, chris rock, whooppi goldberg, george carlin, steve harvey, Salman kahn, Priyanka chopra, Bernie Mac,Matt Damon, William dafoe, to name just a few.
During the time Maestro Ennio Morricone visited NYC for the first time.. I had the privilege to be the only photographer to have full access to the Maestro shows at the United Nations and Radio City shows. And also photographed him during the time of his Life Time Achievement award presented to him by the Motion Picture of Arts and Science. And have had the pleasure to be on stage and photograph a few shows in Italy over the years.
Since 2010 to 2013 I worked with the talented Rob Fusari who found and named Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta as Lady Gaga. As the staff photographer and videographer for his production company. Thus coming into contact with many singers and song writers during that time..
