BIOGRAPHY Like any other boy, ever since my earliest childhood, I have been interested in those four wheel games. Red quickly became a familiar colour; my interest in car racing went slowly growing with the years. A major event accelerated this passion in august 1988, the Commendatore bowed out, the living Legend of car racing was joining his fetish drivers Ascari and Villeneuve. A huge emotion took me over, I felt like loosing a relative, I wanted at that moment to know everything about this colourful character. After I read « My terrible joys », my thirst of knowledge increased: Enzo Ferrari life was outstanding and, of course, fascinating. The first three years following the Commendatore death, auctions exclusively about Cavallino Rampante took place in Monaco. Native of French Riviera, I had the opportunity to discover and immortalize Maranello masterpieces through those fleeting museums. During my research, I got fascinated by Bernard Cahier photographs: a second passion was born… I went studying in Toulon, close to one of the most beautiful circuit of the world. So after static photography, I turned to dynamic photography, and for years I went shooting on Paul Ricard circuit with the goal to create the most representative photographic collection of Ferrari. Antonio Ghini, who was at that time head of Ferrari Spa Communications Department, and Peter Auto association were the first to give me a chance to cover important events such as the Auto Tour, the Historic Shell, the annual Ferrari party… On the circuits, I could meet Bernard Asset, Jean Michel Le Meur, François Flamand, Roberto Viva … photographers who, like Bernard Cahier, made me feel like capturing those magical instants provided by car racing.

On 2012, I am the official photographer of Auto Tour Optic 2000, Classic Endurance Racing, Pau Grand Prix, Spa Classic, Imola Classic, and of 10.000 tours… I also continue my collaboration with Ferrari Corse Clienti. Publications: Yearbook & Media Book Ferrari, World in Red, Red Racing Green, Lemans Racing, Avus, Flat 6… Fotorissima is, as you can imagine, going to relate Ferrari exploits, but it is also opening itself up to the rest of the world…

Sportingly,
