"What happens only once is as if it never happened. If man can only live one life, it is as if he does not live at all.


Photographs can bring us closer to the idea of "living again". We are made of a set of memories. I want to think that each photo contributes to preserve them and avoid that the passage of time erases our best moments.


I like to photograph going unnoticed, to "steal" the moments of truth, the hugs, the kisses, the looks, the smiles, the love. And also that you look at me in camera with serenity, and let yourself be portrayed calmly, with your truth ahead.


If your philosophy of life is relaxed and optimistic, without artifices, without forced poses or conventionalisms, if you live a love story like a film worthy of being told, if you have a wonderful family, or if you think that this is the best moment to take some photographs without haste, I would love to meet you.

A fun fact about me

Photography for me was a hobby and many people told me that I was a better photographer than an engineer (I worked as a systems engineer for more than 25 years), when I came to the USA my first job was as a photographer and I was paid for this, which I enjoyed! I couldn't believe it! Since then I can't do anything else, this is my passion and what I want to do for the rest of my life.
