Simone Zeffiro is an Italian photographer born in 1979 in a small city close to Milan. About eight years ago he officially started his artistic journey combining his own feelings, sensations and personal visions of what an image should be. His interpretative ability brought him to study different photography fields, from fine art to portraits, from street to land and cityscapes, with a particular interest to black and white, nocturnal pictures and nature. During 2008 and 2009, Simone participated as an official photographer to the Italian Sailing Cup MINI650, increasing his experience in the field of Sports/Action photography. 2009 also saw Simone involved with interesting travels and direct cooperation with a leading fashion photographer in Italy. In June 2010 he was acknowledged by an exhibition at the renowned Brick Lane Gallery London. You can view more of Simones works here: www.simonezeffiro.com
