Simone Conti is an Italian photographer teacher, and the co-founder of “FotografiaProfessionale”, Italy’s leading photography website for training and workshops for professionals and enthusiasts sharing a passion for photography.
From early childhood, Simone was totally absorbed by two passions: photography and technology. A first computer at age six, followed soon by his first camera led him down a path that would bring together both disciplines for his professional career. He studied engineering at the University of Bologna and photography at the ICP in New York, among others.
Simone enjoys shooting both film and digital, and is a recognized expert on the technical elements behind composition, shooting long-exposure and flash photography. At home both in the studio and in the field, Simone enjoys shooting a wide-variety of subjects including landscape, portraiture, still-life and street photography and his cat, Lucio. Simone enjoys sharing his knowledge with others through 1-1 teaching and through workshops and classes.
His photographs have been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions since 2007, including the 2010 edition of the international festival of photography: "Fotografia Europea 2010". He is the Profoto ambassador in Italy.
