Colour management is at the heart of everything I do. Without the right colour management workflow, all my efforts are wasted.
No matter how well I try to take a picture, post-produce it with the utmost care or use the best equipment. All this will be in vain.
Only by following proper colour management I can work smoothly, without surprises and with full confidence in the results I will get on the monitor or in the prints.
I have received many official awards in my career, but what counts most for me today is the esteem and trust my team and my customers have for me.
It is never easy to find the right people to work with, people who can make you grow every single day, people with whom you can work very hard but never stop laughing and playing.
This means a lot to me.
I’m seen as a survivor. It’s fantastic and for me it’s an ode to life.
I have survived several earthquakes, such as the one in Japan in 2011, a conman who robbed me, an emergency landing and a burning train car.
And I survived a malignant tumour discovered when it was already in its third stage.
Despite the trials I endured, I chose not to back down. I chose to defend my dreams and my happiness. I learned to pursue courage. In the end, life is an opportunity and should be cherished.
I think that studying is the most important aspect if you want to achieve great results in something.
However, for anyone trying to get serious about photography and post-production it is nowadays very easy to get lost in a myriad of different techniques, approaches, tutorials, and effects.
So my most valuable advice to anyone who wants to do my job is to carefully choose sources from which to study and always test everything you learn.
The number of followers on social media is often overestimated: they indicate good marketing skills, but do not guarantee good skills.
I totally trust Calibrite’s heritage, expertise and products.
Thanks to these products, the colours in my photos are always exactly how I want them: true to reality or accurate to my imagination and creativity.
