Since childhood Mirko has been gifted with an innate sense of curiosity towards everything around him, which is why he develops a strong attraction for nature.

Subsequently he deepens the subject by undertaking a path of specialization in lighting engineering and that in advanced digital shooting. In these years Mirko discovers his particular affinity for portraits, the only medium that will allow him to transmit and establish a completely unusual relationship with people and the world around him.
