Francesco Schiavi is an emergent Photographer based in Brisbane. He fell in love with Photography after moving to Australia from Italy. His passion for Visual arts and the drive to seek beauty in the little details of life gave him the motivations to buy his first camera and he never stopped shooting since then. Portraits, landscapes, urban scenery or sports, he always finds a way to express the soul of the subject in the frame. He completed his Photography studies at Tafe Sydney and since then he developed his network of clients in Brisbane producing social media content for brands such as LashXtend, Kiki Hair Extensions, Fortitude Boxing Gym and Resistance SS.
I absolutely love the challenge of catching the moment when the picture is perfect: the sincere smile of the model, the perfect look, the right angle, the crucial moment in a sports event, the right framing with the surrounding objects. The creative process behind every pictures is what drives me to perfect my craft and give the best I can to my clients.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have mostly shot advertisement campaigns for start up businesses in Brisbane, so my goal for each of my clients was to make them look like what they are: real lovely people which are trying to attract more customers and make their businesses grow. Nothing too fancy, just let the pictures speak with the heart like the subjects in them do in their everyday life.
