I moved to Gold Coast to learn more about photography and experience a new reality, breathe new air and produce new images.
Photography provided me with incredible experiences, moments of glimpse in front of my great musical idols, it provided me exchanges with people I would not have known otherwise, it gave me an attentive and quick look at life. It is very pleasant to be able to record such important moments for other people and see their joy when receiving their photos, it is as a way of giving gifts to the other and at the same time having been part of a unique moment.
In the photograph I found myself, I managed to transmit a little of my gaze on the world to the people around me.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have photographed many events, in each of them I allow myself to experience myself as part of the audience. This gives me the feeling of how I should plan my photos on the spot. I always try to stay close to people, talk to them, know why they are there and what they are enjoying most. This allows me to bring my attention to what is most important to be recorded, what they will connect to in the final image. I always try to make a difference in people's lives, being more than a professional photographer, I'm a human being and I like to see other people smiling.
