Alessio Michelini Photography

Portrait

Hello, my name is Alessio, and I'm an Italian photographer based in Dublin, Ireland. Like many other photographers, I started with the cheapest point and shoot camera, almost 20 years ago, taking photos of cats and dogs, and anything around me that I deemed interesting.

Over the years the passion grew, trying almost every field of photography, macro and close-ups, portraits, events, concerts, and landscape.

For a good chunk of my career, I concentrate more on music photography, snapping almost 500 gigs in a few years, and having the chance to take portraits of many international artists. But while it was indeed something cool to do, I started to lose interest in that field, and back in 2015, after I shot AC/DC in the Aviva Stadium in Dublin, I decided to quit with that genre.

Nowadays I occasionally take street photos to document my daily life and trips around the world, and every time I have a chance to go out in the wild, I shoot the genre that I loved since day 1 of my adventure in photography: Landscapes.

Also over the years, I moved from my powerful and heavy Canon gear to something easier to carry, but yet still perfectly capable, doing the transition to Fujifilm cameras and lenses, doing something that many years ago I thought didn't make sense, moving away from a Full Frame DSLR, back to an APS-C sensor, but I haven't regretted it a single bit, and I'm totally in love with my Fujifilm X-T3 and X-E3 and their superb lenses.
