Eolo Perfido

Photographer and Educator

eolo perfido biography

Photography arrived quite late in my life, but fortunately passions are timeless, so at 28 I took a camera in my hands without knowing that after a while my desire would be to keep it there forever. Taking pictures has become something that goes beyond the simple realization of images and has deeply changed my way of experiencing life and relating to others.

In the last decades I worked for several international agencies and clients such as JWT, Saatchi & Saatchi, Leo Burnett, BBDO, Corbis, Pepsi ColaKraftGatorade, Novartis.

My images appeared on many magazines and journals such as The New York TimesCommunication Arts, Panorama FirstVision, Vogue Russia, GQ Russia, L’Espresso, Computer Arts to name some of them.

I’m represented internationally by the photo agency Sudest57 (Milan).

In the last years I’ve been also honored to assist on the field photographers like Steve McCurryElliott Erwitt, Eugene Richards and James Nachtwey in several of their shootings in Europe, Africa, Asia and South America.

I was born in France in a small town called Cognac.

I live in Rome and work all over the world.

Street Photography and Leica Akademie

About 10 years ago I started to practice Street Photography and now I never go out without my Leica M.

Street Photography is, of all the photographic disciplines, one of the most comprehensive and useful to develop the ability to take pictures in any situation. Regardless of the photographic genre practiced, whether it’s for passion or as a profession, I always recommend to my students and colleagues to deal with street photography as a tool for growth.

Their photographic technique gets stronger and stronger as we apply it to Street Photography. They learn about the ambient light in all its forms as well as shooting in mixed light environment/artificial. They also develop the ability to see and interpret situations in a less superficial way.

Street Photography forces the photographer to walk, learn how to recognize situations and details that can make a great shot. To reach out to people and know them often forcing us to develop interpersonal skills, a very important characteristic for a photographer.

WalkingPhotographer.net is my Street Photography portfolio.

I run international photography workshops and since 2014 I’m a Resident photographer at Leica Akademie (Milano).
