“I can say that in the choice of photo projects I am versatile, I am very open minded. I like to go in a style that is not necessarily mine in the life of every day, change, have challenges, my goal is to learn more and more … it’s very important in the world of fashion. I am passionate for styled photos where the subject will be searched, I like when a picture speaks, I like small details, I do not like flat things. I love fashion projects, the fashion, the lifestyle, moreover soon the theme of my next project will be “rag doll”, a little dark series. “
