Photography in Shrinking Natural Habitats with Marco Gaiotti

The FIAP Photo Academy Online Events invites you to a free zoom lecture 'Photography in Shrinking Natural Habitats' with Marco Gaiotti on Friday 23rd February 2024 at 19:00 London Time.

Born and raised in Genoa, Italy. In 2007 the award-winning photographer Marco Gaiotti discovered, almost by chance, the wild environments of Southern Africa, and with them the passion for nature photography, which drives him every year to explore the most uncontaminated habitats of our planet. In 2009 he spent a month in Alaska to observe the fauna and the spectacular local landscapes, in complete autonomy, camping in the wilderness. From this experience the desire to give a more professional tone to the passion for photography grew. In the fall of 2013 he participated in an expedition to the Svalbard Islands, a few days before the Arctic night. The results of this photographic adventure are translated into publications in the most important international newspapers, including a double page print in the paper edition of 'The Guardian'.

He has been honoured with numerous awards in the main international nature photography competitions, including: The SONY WPA (Open Shortlist), Nature's Best, Windland Smith Rice International Awards, Memorial Maria Luisa. Other awards were obtained at Asferico, GDT European Photographer of the Year, Montphoto, Oasis, Glanzlichter, SIPA, Nature Photographer of the year, Global Arctic Awards.

Marco loves unspoiled natural landscapes. In his landscape he subtly gives way to different animal species such as polar bears, walruses, arctic foxes and seals. His photos are distinguished by the magical soft lights that illuminate the landscape. Or because of dramatic skies. Marco’s images are in any case a feast for the eyes.

This will Marco’s second presentation to the FIAP Photo Academy and will include new work not shown to the academy before now. To register to attend (click here)
