The beauty portrait is a great challenge for every photographer, on the one hand you have a beautiful face to photograph, a good make-up artist the same for the hair stylist, on the other hand after the day of shooting, even if everything was perfect, when you look at the images on your monitor you start to see a lot of imperfections, and you know that you will start with hours of retouching, trying to do everything looking perfect but not fake. Sometimes because the money and the time always rushing , I cannot do the best I wish, but in every case I want to see the customer happy.

The biggest mistake is thinking about the commercial photography like a simple work to do, unlucky is not exactly in this way, just for example, think about a bottle or better a jewel, if you want your customer happy you have to respect the reality, look at the image on the right, each stone has been separated in post-production to make the color and as close as possible to the real one.

And this is only the beginning.

Precision, years of experience, hours and hours of training for find out the right light for every different product, and also we cannot forget a perfect post production, the obsessive attention in every single details, this is what a still life need.

Everything else is just fairytale.

Portrait photography is about capturing the essence, personality, identity and attitude of a person, but is not important if the person is a model or an actor, a white-collar or blue-collar, a pregnant woman or mother with child, before to use grunge background, stunning light and your expensive camera, first of all you should use your brain, talk with people and understand what they expecting from the shooting,

This will make a great portrait for sure.

So if you want to have a portrait or a look book feel free to contact me.

Glamour, "a form of photography involving the taking of pictures of models which are intended to be erotic without being pornographic". I do not want to start a debate on what is right or wrong about this sentence , what I tell you for sure is,

I try sometimes to make people feeling sexy, always with a good taste,

So if you are looking for sensual images of woman’s beauty , you are welcome , but if you think to find just erotic images , I am very sorry , but you will be very disappointed , so please go over.
