Born in a family of esteemed and creative photographers, David Bastianoni, approaches photography since his young age thus following the path of his grandfather, father and uncle narrating since 1932 the realism of personal stories and feelings through images.
The power of his images is driven by deep passion and remarkable experience acquired over years and oriented towards the constant search for emotions, moments and situations. His creative eyes are able to capture the authenticity and magic of the story, as well as the uniqueness of every moment.
“Impartial and privileged observer” these are the words David loves and uses to describe himself, an aesthete in his constant quest for “beauty” in all its expressions. He aims at telling unique and exclusive stories through the narration of a tale described with technique, elegance and spontaneity, by combining candid photos with staged photos, and materializing emotions by means of lights, colours and gestures.
He becomes passionate about wedding photography and finds in his land, Tuscany, numerous perfect settings to create moments and situations filled with emotions: Chianti and Val d’Orcia with its historical villages, Versilia and Val d’Elsa, Florence, Siena, Lucca, Volterra, Pisa, Arezzo, including small Tuscan villages which perfectly frame the event such as Certaldo, Vinci, Pienza, San Miniato, Montepulciano, San Gimignano, Poppi, Pontignano, Cortona, Montalcino, Greve in Chanti and Sinalunga.
His choice to focus on wedding reportage, led him to shoot prestigious events in Italy – Venice, Rome, Portovenere, Orvieto, Naples, Sorrento, Ischia, Capri, Milan, Perugia, Lake Maggiore, Lake Como, Lake Garda – and abroad, as well as to establish numerous professional collaborations such as Workshops in Rome and Pordenone at European level. He has been awarded with several prizes as “Best wedding photographer 2012”, unanimously recognized by the FIOF Association (Fondo Internazionale Orvieto Fotografia – Orvieto Photography International Fund), and “Wedding of the Year 2012” by the ANFM (Associazione Nazionale Fotografi di Matrimonio – National Association of Wedding Photographers), QIP of the year (Italian Professional Photographer Qualification).
