Luca, photographer in Venice
A few words on myself as the person behind the camera, and the keyboard: while the rest of the website focuses on images telling the stories of couples in Venice, here a few words on me as a photographer and a person in general. Ever since childhood I loved drawing, painting and being creative in general then studies went on a way more practical road and after some years spent working and living in several countries I came back to Venice.
Values: Emotions and self actualisation are the main drivers for my choice of being a photographer, and having Venice around is a big bonus.
I feel very happy when there is possibility to partner with people experiencing happy emotions in order to create memories to be shared, this is the part of photography that I love.
The self actualisation relates to being happy about driving my life with freedom and responsibility for each choice.
Present: I use my camera to create memories about happy moments in the lives of others: surprise marriage proposals are my favorite kind of assignment for the amount of unexpected events that normally occur in a very short time, weddings especially if intimate as most elopements and destinations weddings in Venice are, couple's photosession like engagements or honeymoons and vows renewal ceremonies.
This fills me with positive energy and is one of the reasons I love being a photographer.
I use my skills and creativity as best as possible to tell the stories of couples who have given me the privilege of creating visual memories of their special day.
Past: Venice captured my attention many years ago after I started living there at the age of 15 whilst attending an Italian Navy School, after which, I studied economics and worked abroad several years in IT companies. I returned to Milan where my passion for photography, fueled by the education of a 2 years evening course (Istituto Italiano di fotografia) I started my photography business and eventually came back to my favourite city in Italy: Venice.
Future: Venice is a city that I love both for the unique lifestyle and for the architecture. On this subject, and although happy couples are the focus of my activity, while I lived in many other cities I now don't see myself to move much further away. I find myself to be very often in Florence so I'm happy to offer services as a photographer in Florence.
Portrait photography in Venice and all over the world: couples take the lion's share of my photography but the fact that Venice is such a romantic destination doesn't mean that there are little reasons to come here "alone": the Venice Film Festival is a perfect example of when people here for a passion would gift themselves with a day like a star having a private fashion photography session in Venice.
