Born in Desenzano del Garda in 1975, I lived most of my life in Sirmione, currently residing in Peschiera del Garda.
Since adolescence I have always had a morbid attraction for overseas travel in search of different cultures, customs, smells, tastes that could satisfy my greedy curiosity ". In the early days (then twenty) photography was nothing but a way to document and report to my friends and relatives my travel experiences, places, monuments and above all the faces I met in my long stays abroad. I soon realized that something was missing in those images, people's expressions were unnatural because they were aware of being photographed, serious looks always turned towards the lens ... photographs without any authentic feeling and emotion. Dissatisfied with the early work I began to refine a new technique to try to capture the most natural moments and expressions possible, a technique that grew slowly ... matured in the street ... from the colorful Bolivian markets to the chaotic Indian railway stations ... from the thick Indonesian rainforests to the remote mountain villages in Ethiopia. Not to be observed to observe, to be confused among the people to be part of it, to try to disappear to give transparency. I therefore started not to frame the subject through the lens but with the camera on its side ... calculating the perspective for the shot to have the maximum discretion possible and to obtain the expressive naturalness of the subject.
Great photographer. I had an idea about an anniversary shoot in Italy, googled a few names, asked for a price estimate and got a few responses. His stood out, because the price was reasonable and he also gave me an idea of the whole photoshoot. Seemed really nice and easy to work with and in reality everything turned out perfect. We had an incredible 2,5 hours walk around beautiful Sirmione. We had so much fun taking the photos, talking about historical sites, our lives. He was like a photographer / tour guide :), easygoing, fun to work with, speaks excellent english. Doesn't matter if you've ever had a photoshoot before or if you're a bit shy, he makes you feel really comfortable. Definitely recommend!!!
Check out his website, amazing photos.
I had Fabio take some holiday photos of me while in Lake Garda and I was very happy with the results. Fabio spoke english, was very friendly, and showed me around some extremely beautiiful hidden parts of Sirmione during our time together. He even recommended his favourite local restaurant which was fabulous. I would totally recommend the whole experience :)
We decide to make a wedding photoshot near Garda lake and I found Fabio via Google maps. He answered my letter the very next day and in the next conversation Fabio always answered very quickly. Since I had never been to this region before, it was difficult for me to choose a place for photography, but Fabio helped us to choose places and suggested how to get there more conveniently from where we lived. He speaks good English and it was easy and pleasant for us to communicate with him during photography.
He is not only a very talented and polite photographer, I assume not only for us, he was and is the best photographer to choose at Lago di Garda. He supported us with the best photos of our wedding in Sirmione so that we can see our memories all the time. Also we like his style and way of photographing very much. Or to say it in short words.. we had our wedding in the best places of Sirmione, Villa Cortine and La Speranzina, with the best photographer of Sirmione! Hope to see again! Greetings and Grazie Fabio!
My family and I got photos taken with Fabio while in Pescheria. Beautiful memories captured. Fabio was easy to work with and great with our two small children. He knows the area really well and brought us to lovely locations. Thanks Fabio
Un artista, molto professionale e preciso. Ormai siamo i suoi clienti da tanto tempo, e ogni suo servizio (il matrimonio, i battesimi, foto da gravidanza, sessione famigliare nello studio e altro ancora) è stato sempre molto soddisfacente. Si impegna molto nel suo lavoro e le foto che fa sono davvero bellissime. Lo consiglio con tutto il cuore.
We had a large wedding with a Persian ceremony at Isola del Garda and a party after at Torre San Marco on the mainland at Lake Garda in Italy. We found Fabio over the internet. He was reasonably priced, got back to us in no time, spoke great English, was reliable and - which is quite important for a shooting - fun to work with. He took our wishes and ideas seriously and turned them into his art. He is a true artist and we can only recommend him to all couples out there who want to have a great memory. Thank you Fabio.
Als Überraschung für meinen Mann suchte ich einen Fotografen für ein Paarshooting am Gardasee und fand glücklicherweise Fabio Faccioli. Die Kommunikation von Anfang bis Ende lief wunderbar und einfach per email und WhatsApp. Er kann sehr gut englisch sprechen was hilfreich war. Da er sich als Einheimischer bestens auskennt haben wir Fotos an außergewöhnlichen Plätzen machen dürfen und die 2,5 Stunden vergingen trotz großer Hitze an dem Abend wie im Flug. Unser Shoot fand in Sirmione statt und können die Grotte di Catullo (welches Eintritt kostet) nur empfehlen, da die Aussicht und Umgebung für Fotos phantastisch ist. Die Fotos wurden uns überarbeitet und digital zur Verfügung gestellt und auch auf unsere Wünsche eingegangen. Vielen Dank Fabio und ein großes Lob an dich! Alles bestens gelaufen und wir nehmen tolle Urlaubsfotos und Erinnerungen mit nach Hause. Gerne wieder und alles Gute
We booked Fabio for a Pre-Wedding photoshoot at Venice, Italy. before the shooting, Fabio will asked us to send him some samples picture/style that we would preferred so he can fits our needs! We love all the photos taking by Fabio! He is very professional during his service. No communication issue for a Malaysian couple. He did a very great job and we had a great time with him. (He is able to speak English..yay ) Also he charged for a very reasonable price with excellent quality pictures. Definitely will spread word of mouth to all my family and friends when they visit Italy! See you soon Fabio! Take Care!
