My name is Francesco Bognin, class of 1987.
I am an exclusive Italian Photographer specialized in Fine Art Wedding Photography and I live in Verona, but I work all over the world; wherever there is a true love story waiting to be told.
I am a young guy that is ambitious, romantic, and I am a dreamer; my dreams are a life consisting of serenity with my family, a career which I love and that brings great satisfaction, and long walks at sunset with my adored dog.
I discovered photography only in 2011, and within a short period of time, the rewards have been so fulfilling and numerous that they could no longer be ignored; it was at that precise moment, even though my studies brought me to become an osteopath, that I decided to follow my heart and transform what was my greatest passion into a splendid career.
I believe that it was my destiny to become a photographer; I am not a child of art, but my photography is very much influenced by my family, especially my maternal grandfather, who was a nationally acclaimed painter.
I never had the honor of meeting my grandfather because he passed away before I was born, but from an early age, however, I used to gaze at his paintings that I had in my parents house and I used to lose myself there.
Today I continue to love art and I am often influenced by some of his works as well as other artists of the past; this is why I like to call my style "Fine Art Photography"; my intent is not to create simple shots, but rather small works of art.
I love to recount weddings because I deeply love life in the simplicity of those which I consider to be the most important values: serenity, family, and loved ones.
