Settimio Benedusi calls himself a beauty hunter – a description that is very fitting. Ever since he got his first camera at the age of 12 he has been thinking about taking the perfect picture. He says he’s looking for beauty, emotions and feelings. And if you ask us he’s been successful at that various times. “I look at the subject and shoot – that’s the only way for capturing moments that otherwise would be gone like tears in the rain”, Settimio adds.

He was born in Italy forty-six years ago and is based in Milan, where he also has his studio. He’s been a professional photographer for already 20 years now and his projects have taken him to places all over the world, working for all kinds of major magazines like GQ, Max, Vogue, Cosmo, Marie Claire, Sports Illustrated, Elle, and various big brands like Versace, Fila, Armani and Swatch.

Settimio also writes (in Italian) about photography on his blog and for the major italian newspaper, “Corriere della Sera”.
