I worked as a Journalist for several years but moving to the US in 2008 put my life to a different perspective. I was looking for a way of expressing myself and the universal visual language of photography offered me a perfect creative outlet. After a couple of years of studying photography and assisting on sets in San Francisco, I relocated to Ann Arbor and decided to open my own photography studio. In my work as a wedding and event photographer, I am the observer, not the creator to an existing scene. I use visual language to tell stories and I pride myself in being able to capture the personalities of my clients. I had the opportunity to photograph celebrities on the Venice Film Festival`s red carpet this September 2011 and traveling, quite frankly, is the best part of my job.
