Paolo Lazzarotti

Paolo is an Awarded and Published Fine Artist specialized in Nudes in the Nature and Landscapes. He is shooting since 30 years now and still avid and feels open to new experiences like a child!

He lives in a small village very close to some of the most beautiful italian places like Cinque Terre National Park, the Gulf of Poets, the Tuscan countryside and a wild coast line. He took his first steps in Photography when he was 19 with a compact film camera which was given by his father. I loved this gift. It inspired me to look at the world around me in a different way. He is a self taught photographer learning everything by himself without books or instruction.

Paolo's favourite subjects are landscapes, sunsets and all the things in the natural world. He has cultivated a love of sea storms and sometimes faced risk while photographing huge waves and rain. When nature would reveal herself to Paolo with her majestic strength and beauty, He’d feel stupefied next to her.

It's for this same reason that he came to love female portraiture. When he works with a model, he likes to hear her speak. She becomes animated talking about sensuality and passion. Rarely will he have a model pose in a static way. Working with models Paolo feels the same wonder as when he captures images of storms.
