Today I am happy to share with you my first menswear editorial published on HUF Magazine! A huge thanks to my precious team, to the amazing talent of dancers Travis S C Knight and James Pett, to the great professionalism and impeccable taste of stylist Alexandra Vilvoc and to the lovely work of make up artist Agi Spisak.
Summer is almost over, as are my holidays, so it is time to process the last photographs, and plan new projects! Here are some photos from a test shoot done with the lovely Justyna, just a few weeks before she moved from England to Spain. Wishing her all the best, I leave you with these sweet images!
My first Fashion Editorial has been published on Kodd Magazine! I am very happy I had the chance to work with some very talented professionals on this, and I want to thank them all once again for the nice day spent together and of course for the result achieved!
Amanda and Billy got married last summer in the lovely village of Wytham (Oxfordshire). I had the pleasure to work and collaborate with Amanda the year before, and I was very happy when she asked me to photograph her wedding, treating me as a friend and really trusting my vision and style! The ceremony, celebrated at All Saints church, was a very heartwarming one, and it was followed by a reception in the Wytham Town Hall. Everything, from the cake to the decorations and the childrens’ games, was handmade (families and friends worked hard on that) and beautiful. Speeches were hilarious, funny and moving. I could not expect anything better from a couple in love! Everytime I photograph a wedding like this, I feel blessed to work with such lovely people. So, thanks again Amanda and Billy, and all the best in life!

Thanks a lot to Travis S C-Knight, dancer for Wayne McGregor, who trusted my ideas and used is great talent to work with me on this project!

This is something Vinesh could have said to his Victoria, among all the other beautiful words that have been shared on their wedding day! They had such a marvelous celebration last June, and I felt honored to be their photographer for the second time. Vinesh and Victoria got officially married last year, and wanted to do a great party for those family members and friends who could not attend the previous civil ceremony. Nothing could be done better! From the location – the amazing Rhodes House – to the table setting and all the little gadget prepared for the fun of their guests, everything was joyful, young and inspiring. Also the speeches – some of which were readings from books – were touching and beautifully romantic. The best I have heard so far! Equally special was the pre-wedding session we obtained the permission to shoot at the Codrington Library of All Souls College (see the photos at the bottom of the post). For a person like me who loves books and historic locations, that was a real moment of happiness. For all these reasons I want to thank again Victoria and Vinesh for letting me be part of one of their best days in life!

Your great visions strangled your words

I met these two lovely children – brother and sister – two Sunday ago in Oxford. During the past three years, since I moved to England, I had the opportunity to photograph them other times and to see them growing up. This is for sure one of the positive aspects of working more often with the same loyal clients: that we better get to know each other, and we all together enjoy the photo shoot with a relaxed mind and an happy heart.
