Biography

My name is Riccardo, I was born on September 3rd, 1985, in Marsciano, a small city in the province of Perugia and I still live there today. I’ve been drawn to photography ever since I was a small child when I would flip through countless magazines, soaking in all the characteristics that I found most interesting.

In 2004, I received a diploma as a technician in the field of Touristic Services which led me to go on and obtain a degree in Public Relations at the University for Foreigners in Perugia. My thesis focused on the use of images to raise awareness and appreciation of any given territory (in my case, the territory of Todi) and its historical, artistic and natural heritage. I first approached photography as a passion and later had the great fortune of being able to transform this passion into a job. I am mainly specialized in wedding reportage, landscape and travel photography and photography related to corporate events and communication.

I have provided services to several large companies such as Ebay, Liomatic, Gesenu, I Sassi di Assisi, Nexo Corporation, Italian Marketing Foundation, L&TC Logistics and Traffic Centre, Hot Buttered, Assia Medica, Work Secure, TiEmme Elettronica and for the advertising agency Salt & Pepper.

I love the work I do because a photographer’s job is one of the most beautiful trades in the world. It allows you to express your sensitivity – and the way you view, interpret and tell a story about anything – through photography, whether it be concrete or abstract. The intrinsic and magical power of photography is its ability to move people. I consider myself very fortunate to have taken on this mission.
