My inner dream was to become a photographer. I've always been in love with photography, since I was a child, and I've always loved to share my passions with others.
In my lessons students learn the subject they love the most through a variety of exercises and practice, but they mainly learn to see rather than look.
I always encourage people to play with the city around and create new subjects and shapes out of common buildings or objects.
You just need to raise your head to spot interesting details around you!
People sometimes feel overwhelmed, lacking in confidence or creativity. Through our time together I always try to create a relaxing and friendly environment. I've been a student myself, and I messed up so much with photography before I became a proper photographer!
That's why I often challenge my students, to involve them in the creative process rather than simply follow my instructions.
I have been extremely proud of students whose confidence grows and learning becomes almost a beautiful game.
Teaching people is amazing, but teaching people while they can practice with your assistance is even better! I always prefer to start the lesson with a coffee (I'm Italian after all!) and then wander around together.
I always aim to have fun practising on a variety of subjects, and make new discoveries.
That is my goal: create amazing stories to share and encourage people to do the same!
I have been tutoring photography for 2 years and have taught students in a broad range of ages, subjects, and nationalities.
My lessons are designed for all levels or anyone looking for a refresher or an upgrade from film cameras.
I have clients of mixed skill levels who are looking to learn more than they currently know. I will always ensure everyone understands the basics of photography, before pushing skill levels forward.

I always wander around with my camera taking pictures of details on walls or on the floor. When people asks me what am I doing I always try to show them. Usually this ends up with people looking at me as if I'm an alien :D
