I have been taking photographs professionally for over 30 years. Born & brought up in Florence, the great beauty of my surroundings has inspired my love of harmony, colour & form. My father, who was an artist and owned Florence's foremost modern art gallery, always encouraged my love of photography. My cousin & godfather Primo Conti was one of Italy's most influential Futurist painters & growing up around them helped form my eye & aesthetic.

I started out shooting still lives & fashion for Stefano Ricci more than 30 years ago. I am again the official photographer for Stefano Ricci which is one of the foremost luxury menswear brands in the world today & one of Italy's best-loved Made in Italy labels, selling extremely high-quality men's fashion & accessories around the world.

I am responsible for the photography of all of Stefano Ricci's various catalogues, Look Books, online images as well as all the images they use for advertising their products around the world, in magazines such as Robb Report, & at venues such as NYC's MOMA.

As well as fashion, I specialise in reportage, fashion, interiors, lifestyle, street style & travel pictures. Editorially, my work has been published by the Guardian (UK), The Financial Times (China), WEXAS Traveller (UK), Elle Deco (Italy), & a host of other international titles. My fashion still lives have appeared in British GQ Style.

I am based between Italy & London.
