Pro Media Mag : First of all tell us about the start of your professional career?
Alexis Gilli : The first time I got a camera in my hands , I felt in love with it !
It was an old 7D with a 70-200 2.8 which I lent from a friend . I spent a whole week playing around with it , then spent 2 years eating/sleeping/breathing photography , and finally decided to make the big jump! I launched my business , and it quickly became very successful.
Pro Media Mag : Who or what inspired you to get into Photography?

And I want to have a fully booked agenda 3 years in advance .
Pro Media Mag : We came to know you are also creating a start up on E-commerce? Our readers would like to know more about that?
Alexis Gilli : Well , photography is amazing , but I also love entrepreneurship in general .
I found that only having a photography business running was a little boring
and I was lacking the hustle and the grind that has to come along with being an entrepreneur .
Therefore , I decided to launch a startup , called Piquitio , which is gonna be a
platform , similar to Aliexpress , Wish or Amazon , on which sellers will be able
to upload their products for free and to sell them worldwide !
Pro Media Mag : Anything else you would like to share with our readers ?

It’s an honor , and shows everyone that hard work pays off 🙂
