I must be the luck­­i­est man alive. I not only get to meet and pho­to­­graph the world's most beau­­ti­­ful women, but when I'm not in the stu­­dio or on loc­a­­tion I fly Chinook and Huey heli­­copters for the Itali­an army!

My pas­­sion is to cap­ture and share the sen­su­al beauty of the fe­­male form. The fe­­male nude is, for me, nature's finest gift. I am so moved by this aes­thet­­ic that I try to trans­late what I feel into still im­ages. I don't use many mod­­els as I prefer to form spe­­cial work­ing re­la­­tion­­ships with just a few. I think this is the most im­­port­ant part of tak­ing a great pho­to­­graph. I have very spe­­cial feel­ings for my mod­­els and they for me. A re­­cipe of trust, un­­der­­stand­ing, hu­­mour and friend­­ship al­lows my mod­­els and I to relax, to relax in such a way that my cam­era be­­comes simply a tool for cap­tur­ing the mo­­ments we share. Many people ask me whet­h­­er I am a ro­­mant­ic when they see my pho­to­­graphs. I take this as a great com­pli­­ment. It means that I por­­tray women in the right light. I am ro­­mant­ic and in front of such ex­­traordin­ary beauty I want to cre­ate po­etry with my cam­era.
