Behind the camera
Hey! My name is Jack, I was born in Italy and have lived in Edinburgh, London, Barcelona & Melbourne. I am currently spending half the year in the Southern Hemisphere and the other half around Europe, with a base in Barcelona. I travel a lot, play guitar, love festivals and take photos at weddings.
I would love to join you and your friends while creating a “non-weddingy” photography that doesn’t look shiny or kitsch but more raw and authentic. Less posing and more fun, take away the boring bits and add some rock & roll instead.
A few weekends remain free in 2017, now also taking bookings for 2018. Pricing starts at £1,650 / 1.950€ .
Please drop me an email if you would like to check availability and I will get back at you as soon as possible.
I would love to hear a bit about yourself and what you have in mind for your wedding.
I hope to hear from you soon!
More about me..
I travel loads!
I shot weddings all over the UK, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Norway, Sweden, Australia, the USA, and fly out to more countries each year. In the last 10 months, I have not been in a single place for as long as two weeks.
How did I get there?
One August evening, in Scotland, after shooting for 15 hours I was in a room witnessing the Hindu ritual of the groom taking the bride from her parents’ home.
Everybody started crying.
The bride, her parents, cousins, the little kids and the old grandparents. Even Satpal, behind his video camera. My eyes started getting wet, it was just impossible not to. That was the first time I had tears in my eyes in quite a long time. That is when I knew I wanted to become a wedding photographer.
Born in the region of Parmesan cheese in Italy, left for Scotland at the age of 18 where I studied a bit of Psychology and then Graphic Design before starting to work as photographer. After 4 years in Edinburgh I moved to London where I attended a world class workshop and met some amazing wedding photographers, while filling up my summers with shoots all over Europe and the occasional festival, including my favourites: Burning Man events, we call them regional Burns.
In 2015 I lived in Barcelona and commuted to the UK on weekends, as I have worked out this was cheaper than paying rent in London. Yup, it is true.
In 2016 I shot in 9 European countries and travelled through a total of 15 including Australia, New Zealand & Indonesia.
How I shoot
I think you should enjoy your wedding first of all and I would never "command & control", but let the day unfold and capture great moments as they happen.
I never ask anyone to "do it again", you are not an actor. I am ready when it happens the first time ;)
I often shoot from the hip to be even more discreet. The cameras I shoot with at the moment are very small and hardly noticeable. I am not the type to lift a half meter long cannon-lens into someone's face.
Oh and I never say no to a gin & tonic!
