SOMETHING ABOUT ME

​My name is Livio. I'm a freelance photographer based in London. I'm also an actor, an accomplished dancer, a once-upon-a-time pop star, an aesthete, creative cook, but above all, I'm curious and passionate.

 

I've been described as a multi-hyphenate person (mʌl.tiˈhaɪ.fə.nət/: a person with several professions or skills)

To me it means that I have various creative outlets that I like to pursue at the best of my abilities. 

Photography is one of my greatest passions because it allows me to connect with people and create at the same time.

I love empowering people through portraits: whether in the studio or outdoors, I'm passionate about creating stunning images that help bring others' visions to life by showcasing their remarkable personality, their products or services, and take their business to the next level.

 

My aim is to create inspiring photographs that tell your unique story and showcase your Remarkable Personality, your Products, or Services and take your business to the next level.

MY PASSION

I started taking pictures as a hobby when I was a teenager, whenever I could borrow my father's old film camera - pre digital era! I have always been fascinated by images: the stories they tell, the atmosphere they evoke and the emotions they are able to hold.

My background, however, is in the performing arts. I've spent most of my life singing, dancing, choreographing or acting, in front of thousands of people, on multiple stages & sets all over the world. It's been a crazy and exciting journey, I feel extremely lucky to have lived the life of my dreams and I've had a blast!

Since a few years now, I've enjoyed exploring my creativity in different ways and following alternative paths, which led me to work more and more behind the camera, as a photographer, stylist and creative director. 

Helping people feel confident and shine in front of the camera fills me with incredible joy.

This new creative journey is giving me the opportunity of seeing & experiencing things from another perspective, allowing me to make beautiful imagery not only for my personal self expression but also for the enjoyment of other people as well. I am constantly inspired by the arts, by the multiple facets and colours of nature, by light and shadows, by theatre, dance and music: I can't imagine a world without these things. Ultimately though, I love connecting with people. I am truly fascinated by their dreams, their journeys and the stories they want to tell.

MY PROCESS AND MY STYLE

Having worked in the entertainment industry in theatre, tv, and cinema has helped me develop an attentive eye for composition, story telling, beauty, lighting and the use of space, which I now utilise each time I take pictures, whether in a studio or on location.

Being curious and interested into these aspects of reality have also led me to experiment with creative portraiture photography, which has allowed me to freely express myself and learn more about the art of post-production and image editing.

One of my priorities is to make my clients feel relaxed in front of the camera, whilst maintaining a fun and creative atmosphere, which is fundamental to best assist them in bringing their vision to life.

If you are considering booking a photoshoot, I'd suggest to take a look at my imagery (Portfolio) and if you think I am the right photographer for your needs, you wish to collaborate on a project, or simply wish to make an enquiry, drop me a line.  I'd love to hear from you.

ART PHOTOGRAPHY & CREATIVE PORTRAITS

Having worked as a movement director and choreographer, 

I am influenced by dance, theatre and cinematography. 

Using elements found in nature, hand crafted props, moody lighting, and with the help of photoshop editing technique, I aim to create parallel dimensions and characters suspended between reality and an imaginary world, in a timeless settings. Beauty, the invisible, the underling conflicts, the untold emotions and the unspoken words are recurrent themes in my photography. The way we interact with the world around us and the reality we are able to create, leads me to explore the multiple ways of human expression and the influence we have on each other and our surroundings on a physical, emotional and spiritual level.
