Matteo Originale

ARTISTIC WEDDING PHOTOJOURNALIST FROM BOLANO, LA SPEZIA in LIGURIA, ITALY

 

Born in a small village near Cinque Terre, Italy in 1977, I was interested in photography since my youth. I spent a lot of hours in the darkroom viewing my father's pictures. With the passage of time photography became more than a passion, it became my whole life.

I work throughout Italy (Siena, Florence, Rome, Venice, Como Lake, Portovenere, Orvieto, Amalfi, Sorrento) and in foreign locations.

I continue to develop my skills through attending different workshops and seminars.

I started taking pictures when I was a child, trying to imitate my father. I liked his old cameras and I was fascinated by the alchemy of the darkroom.

With the passage of time this particular way of interacting with reality has become the passion that today is my job. I like to think that with me there's always that little boy, with his curiosity, his desire to experiment, his wanting to put himself to the test continuously. Read More...
