My adventure started in 2008 when I moved to Rome after living in four other countries. The city’s amazing culture immediately fascinated me, and I spent a lot of time wandering the streets, taking pictures of the locals who seemed so comfortable and confident in front of the camera.

One thing that really amazed me was how couples would passionately kiss in public, not paying attention to anyone else around them. As a photographer who focuses on capturing moments on the streets, their carefree attitude was truly inspiring to me.

Looking through my camera’s viewfinder, I’ve been fortunate to capture many special and one of a kind moments with interesting people from around the globe. These moments are impossible to put into words and that’s what makes photography such a strong and meaningful art form.

Continuing my journey as a photographer, I am constantly seeking ways to develop my skills and elevate my creativity. After successfully running 73 weekly contests on our Facebook page Since July 2011, I have decided to create a website specifically for photography competitions, which launched in early 2022. Along with the competitions, the website also features articles related to photography.
