Born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Federico’s interest in photography started when he was a kid, and his uncle gave him an old video camera. He turned the camera on and transformed his house into a set. Now after more than a decade working around the world, the film set is his home.

His formal training began when he studied cinematography at Universidad del Cine in Buenos Aires. Immediately after graduating, he started shooting commercials, short films, and music videos. World traveler at heart and soul, he expanded his career across five continents balancing commercials and features varying in scale from major productions to small run-and-gun passion projects. No matter the size or form, he just loves to be on a set and a part of a creative team.

He is obsessed with the many ways one can tell the same story and is always looking for the best way to express life’s everyday beauty and emotions through narrative and framing.

Eight years ago, he moved to Los Angeles, where he is based now.

He just finished principal photography on his fifth feature film, Flamin Hot. Directed by Eva Longoria and produced by Searchlight pictures to be premiered at SXSW festival this year.
