Photographer venice

A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed.

Ansel Adams

The world presents numerous wonderful opportunities to a photographer.

I have spent many years exploring these possibilities, including documenting child labour in Latin America for 12 months which culminated in a travelling exhibition; and recording the lives of Kenyans in an exhibition called “People from the True Continent”. My native Venice presents a wealth of subject matter which never ceases to thrill me, from the serenity of the lagoon at dusk to the excitement of the Carnivale, I never tire of photographing this beautiful place.

My name is Michele, I am a native of Venice, born on the island, now dividing my time between Vienna & Venice. I am a events & wedding photographer, as well as operating photography workshops, mostly in Austria & Italy.

I speak Italian, English, German and Spanish.

Recently I have been working for Ferragamo, Generali, Netflix and Tate Gallery, with photographs published in many international publications including Il Gazzettino, Ansa, Lapresse, Kurrier, Reyerzine, Venezia Marketing & Eventi, La fotografia Actual, and the 55th Venice Biennale catalogue.

I have been a member of the Association of Italian Journalists and teach photojournalism at my local folk high school.

I find capturing the moment before me exhilarating. Documenting the detail, recording the mood and finding meaning in the scene before me are central to my photographic technique.

To photograph is to hold one’s breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It’s at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.
