I began to take photos using a very basic camera, when I was a teenager. I bought all the necessary elements as soon as I could, and set up a Black & White photo lab. At the early age of seventeen, I bought my first Minolta reflex camera and a professional speedlight, with which I began to work as a wedding and event photographer. Later on I became an architect and then I obtained a degree of Master of Arts in Urban Design from the Victoria University of Manchester. I worked as an architect, and mainly as an urban designer and city planner, but never abandoned my love of photography. In 2008 I made the leap into the world of digital photography, and from about 2010 and onwards I have been using Sony cameras and lenses.
