Hi, I’m Giulio!
A lifelong journey into photography began when I inherited my best friend's camera only to come to the realization that we never had a photo together. When I was given Travis’s camera, I knew it was for a reason, for a higher purpose than making a beautiful image. I find spiritual fulfillment in that fraction of time when the image is captured knowing it will bring a much-needed pause in one's life when they see the end result. My vision is for the viewer to have a genuine connection with those I photograph.
My creative process begins by setting the intention. I think about why am I photographing this person(s) and what do I want the finished series of images to say.
I have an empathetic approach to photographing people and like to work at a conversational distance. This methodology creates an inclusive experience for the viewer while giving the subject space for honest emotions. As an optimist, my energy is often reflected in those I connect with through photography.
❤️ Community, self-expression, and diversity are the foundation of my photographic work. ❤️
When collaborating on projects, we'll work with the data your research provides as a guide to creating content that fits the needs of your brand's messaging. Deliverables can be still photography, video clips and audio clips perfect for storytelling in the age of screens we live in.
I value people over profit, experiences over things. I love being a father to Roman and husband to Valdese and my many friends bring joy to my life. I'm named after my grandfather, Giulio who after WWII was a photographer in Rome before opening three shoe stores. My grandfather and father both worked to live well. I embody this ideal within my family.
If I'm not working, I'm spending time with those close to me. My extended family is large, diverse and beautiful. Life is too short to work for the pursuit of things, but I appreciate greatly when a product or service gives me time with those I love.
