I love photography and I invite you to discover landscapes, nature and structures, re-defined by the powerful contrasts of light, shadow and ever changing colours. Everything startet with my 1st camera when I was 8 or 9 years old, but since then the photography had never let me go. My pictures are all about landscapes and nature. Very often, I focus on the heavens above them, who seem to interact and speak to what is below. I challenge you to look through my eyes, that are constantly searching for new moments of beauty and transformation in nature and everything around us. This is the stuff, that my dreams are made of.
I love to share them with you!
