Model: Automobilia Maserati Tipo 61 «Birdcage» (maquette)
Needs: High-quality 1:1 full-scale automobilia of a Maserati Birdcage Type 61. Built on an original chassis, this is the copy of the first maquette used to give shape to this iconic Maserati. The request was to give an idea of the object's peculiarity and uniqueness in the best way possible, to exalt its "birdcage" structure and to give an "industrial mood" to the photos.Solution: In this photoshoot I took particular care of the light to try to define the shapes and to exalt in the best way the tubular structure of the model.

Model: Fernando Alonso Renault R29 Engine Cover (2009)
Needs: For this voluminous memorabilia there wasn't a specific request other than to describe its shape well and make it an attractive object in the eyes of a potential F1 enthusiast buyer and fan of Fernando Alonso.Solution: I searched for a photo in a raised position to start the series with an impact shot that defines the shape of the memorabilia and makes it immediately recognizable in the eyes of any F1 enthusiast. I then continued the photo shoot with the usual views and details trying to exalt the shining of the livery with a good use of the light.Result: My photos have well described this memorabilia, which was sold online and is now an integral part of the collection of an other fan of F1-related objects.
Model: Vintage sign (Ferrari, Lamborghini, ...)
Needs: To photographically represent this type of automobilia in the best way possible. Generally there are no specific indications, if not obtaining brilliant shots, taking care of the proportions of the object and its lines must be always well straight.Solution: Take for example two vintage signs that were sold particularly well, both above the sale estimate. They are simple objects in form, but not trivial in photographic representation. They often have mirrored parts for which reflections must be neutralized and some attention is needed to make the idea of brightness well when the vintage sign has the lights on. The importance of representing this type of automobilia well is essential, infact the are usually sold directly online.Result: Automobilia sold.
