The most important technique I use in all my photo shoots is called relationship building. Over thirty years of relentless world travel working for Network News has landed me back to my original passion: portraiture. Obviously I can work digitally, but my preferred tools are large format film cameras. I use these cameras and lenses from a bygone era to create a specific look. Hand-developing in my own darkroom enables a remarkably fast delivery of high resolution digital scans to clients. A “Renaissance” upbringing in Italy and many years of studio and field experience worldwide have helped me connect easily with all types of people and allow me to translate the most stylistically and editorially diverse briefs into an accurate, unique interpretation of my clients’ vision.
