Sergio is an autodidact photographer with a particular interest in studying and applying composition and color theories to his photos
Still life in studio photography is an important part of Sergio's photography where he plays with light and color to give new depth, vibrance and texture to his compositions. The careful use of post processing techniques allows him to bring to life that particular mood that pervades his photos.
In some of his work he uses the "light painting techniques" where the photo is taken in total darkness and a small light is moved to define the final subject. Trial, error and imagination are needed to obtain the desired results.
Sergio's photos have been displayed in numerous Galleries including the Spectrum in Essex, CT, the Salmagundi Art Club in NYC, the Washington Art Association Gallery in CT and the Kent Art Association Gallery in CT, The Carriage Barn Arts Center in New Canaan, CT.
Here is a list of some of the awards received for his work:
award of excellence for Photography in the 2018 President’s show at the Kent Art Association and the Award of Excellence for photography at the Member II show at the Kent Art Association. He won the SCNY President’s Award for photography at the 40th Annual Open Exhibition at the Salmagundi Art Club. Honorable mention in the Focus 19 and Focus 20 shows of the Wilton Arts Council. One of his photos has been nominated for the 2021 International Color awards, and his work has been a selected finalist and commended in the still life competition of the IGPOTY (UK).
