filippo scarpi


I was born in Venice, Italy, in 1978, I am an architect living mostly in Milan, but also in Venice and Padua.
I discovered photography as a reality interpretation tool when I was 20.
I’m working on my own projects where photography is intended as an instrument for cultural investigation and on assignment as well.

I work digitally (Canon camera and lenses) and on film (Mamiya 645 medium format system and Arax medium format 6x6 pentacon six system).

My technical knowledge in architecture and my passion for technology work blend well with my photography skills, creating stunning images for engineering and architecture building industry.
My work covers artistical rendering, photomontage, simulations and photographic assistance to construction processes.

My work also covers fine art environmental and landscape photography, architecture photography, classic portraiture, fine art nude and events shooting.
