Before turning to professional photography Matteo has been working as a computer technician.
He started taking pictures with a Polaroid 600, which sometimes he still uses. He has a great passion for lomography and for Toys Cameras.
He then moved to an advertising agency where he was finally able to work as a full-time photographer, producing still-life images for large retailers such as Metro, Coop. He soon discovered a passion for food-photography, that led him quickly to photograph the dishes of famous starred and gourmet restaurants. For several years he has been working as a freelance photographer, for still-life, portraits and reportage, traveling throughout Italy.
His true passion remains architectural photography, which led him to accept the commitment of the Palau de la Musica Catalana in Barcelona for a series of shots of the theater and his interior rooms. He holds workshops and photography courses in several Italian cities.
His experience in advertising and still-life photography, his attention to details, his love for lines and volumes, confer a very special taste to his images.
