Flavio Bandiera (Italy)
Art lover, fond of literature and music, Flavio begins his career as an assistant photographer working in several fields as portrait, still life, and advertising photography. His first experience with wedding photography, in the ’90s, was almost accidental and marked the beginning of a great passion: while looking for a perspective that could be more real and immediate than the most fashionable and popular point of view he discovered in this field the perfect mixture of a formal rigour and a stylistic spontaneity.
In the following years Flavio devoted himself to wedding photography with great passion, believing in the value of his pictures as both pieces of art and documents and choosing this as his path. A declared elegance, a descriptive language rich in details and slightly intimist, in which one can identify himself because it is timeless.
Flavio is the founder of the exclusive Best of Wedding Photography, including the best wedding photographers in the world, and of ANFM, the first national association of wedding photographers of Italy. He is member of the most illustrious international associations of wedding photographers as SWPP, WPPI, ISPWP, WPS, Fearless Photographers.
His contribution to the world of wedding photography earned him several prestigious awards. He is currently a wedding photographer, holds conferences and workshops photography around the world and collaborates with the most important magazines in the industry, both in Italy and abroad.
After having used for years so many reflex cameras I finally fell in love for FUJIFILM X-T3 thanks to its retro beauty look, dimensions, lightness and of course, quality in terms of colors and details together with his phenomenal tilt screen that allow me to create definitely better photos with no efforts. These are the main reasons why I decided to start working just with X-T3 and GFX 50S.
Now, at the end of each work, I’m more happy with my photos and less tired, even ready to enjoy more good times with my family.
