Born and raised in Rome, Italy, the union of photography and fashion began in Nino’s childhood when his uncle gave him his first camera and he used to photograph and watch his mother, a seamstress, sewing clothes at home.

Nino moved to New York City and received a full scholarship to FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology). Having been an assistant designer to Ralph Lauren, Giorgio di Sant'Angelo and Ron Shamask, Nino brings his knowledge of fabric, color, silhouette, texture – all the elements of good design – to his photography.

His style is rooted in the classic, yet he's contemporary, and always striving for the element of surprise: “It is that element that I'm after, that unexpected moment – sometimes that's the best shot!”

Nino's Fashion, Lifestyle and Celebrity images have appeared in Harper's Bazaar, Hamptons, Downtown, Men's Health, etc.

He's a faculty member of the Fashion Design Department at FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising).
