Nato a Sorrento nel 1964, Francesco si afferma come art director presso le agenzie internazionali di advertising di Milano, Roma e Londra ma, appartenendo al segno dei Pesci, era certamente destinato ad esprimere professionalmente la sua passione per il mare.
Si dedica quindi alla fotografia subacquea e archeologica, ai reportage di viaggio e pesca tradizionale, vincendo numerosi concorsi di fotografia e realizzando apprezzati libri.
Da alcuni anni è approdato alla fotografia di yachting e segue come fotografo ufficiale le più belle barche e le regate del Mediterraneo, nonché i grandi restauri nei cantieri.
I suoi scatti sono presenti sulle copertine e negli articoli delle più prestigiose riviste del mondo, per le quali lavora su archivio e su assignment.
Realizza inoltre Mostre fotografiche multitematiche in Italia e all’estero.
Le sue fotografie combinano tecnica ed entusiasmo, alla ricerca del taglio grafico, del momento e della luce giusta, che esaltino la storia da raccontare che si cela dietro ogni scatto.
La sua appassionata filosofia è: “No words, emotions!”

Born in Sorrento in 1964, Francesco made his name as an art director at international advertising agencies in Milan, Rome and London, but being a Pisces, he was always destined to express his passion for the sea through his work.

For several years Francesco has been photographing yachts and as an official yachting photographer, he documents the most prestigious regattas and most beautiful boats in the Mediterranean, not to mention the biggest boat renovations.
His photos can be seen on the covers of and in features of the most prestigious journals of the world, working for them both on assignment and on archive.

His photography is a combination of technical expertise and enthusiasm, in search of the right graphic, perfect timing and the right light, ultimately bringing out the story waiting to be found behind each click of the camera.
At the heart of Francesco’s work, lies his passionate philosophy of: “No words, emotions!”
