The research for important detail and the conjuring up of magical atmospheres, exalt the unique art of Dino Cappelletti, a photographer who lives and works in Grottammare where he was born in 1962.
Since 1984 he has been a professional photographer and co-owner with his wife Laura Venditti of the Immagine Foto Studio, a prestigious photographic studio specialized in social photography and portraits.
A natural predisposition for painting displayed at an early age, a love of the figurative arts together with a remarkable aesthetic sense, have strongly influenced his work.
Purely self-taught, he has perfected his style by studying a great deal, photographing non-stop and learning how to correct his own mistakes. He incessantly participates at training courses and educational workshops, adding a high professionalism to his natural talent.
In addition Dino Cappelletti is a perfectionist, capable of studying places and situations for hours, returning several times to the same place to seize the right moment and capture the right light. His talent, strong professionalism and thoroughness regarding research emerge both in his romantic wedding services, which are always set in different environments and are never repetitive, as well as in the images of the landscapes and settings.
He rose to international fame for his special photographic services, not to mention his wonderful travel reportages, landscape photographs and research. Also his large photographic archive, that he jealously guards in his studio, is particularly interesting and is used by public and private organizations for furnishing small and large environments; as well as his collection of vintage photos. In his portraits he succeeds in capturing the maximum expressiveness and the characters of the people portrayed, like a painter with his models.
Not at all jealous of his art, whenever he can, he offers his professional expertise to young professionals during his photography courses, seminars and photographic excursions
Since 1991 he has been engaged in carrying out meetings aimed at professional photographers, both as organizer and teacher; he is also extremely committed to the realization of photographic exhibitions and the publication of books and catalogues.
Laura Venditti began her career as a professional photographer in 1984, the same year in the which Foto Studio Immagine was founded, a prestigious Photographic studio with its premises in Grottammare, which specializes in Wedding and Portrait photography.
Laura quickly became the heart and soul of the studio’s artistic activity, adding that particoular touch of feminine sensitivity that would make all the Albums carried out during her long and successful career, unique, special, interesting and of the great emotional impact.
We are talking about the real emotions, when she photographs the subject, trying to capture and transmit the feelings perceived in that delicate moment of portraying a person.
In fact it was she herself who coined the motto that accompanies Foto Studio Immagine’s trademark – “All your emotions in our photos” – which distinguishes the splendid works that are born from the photographic studio’s constant and meticulous commitment.
Laura lets herself be captured by the emotions and moved by the feelings, as she take her photo, in such a way that she is able to see through the eyes of her models, in order to understand their character and discover their sentiments.
Her character is vivacious and volcanic, but at the same time charming and kind, so she has no difficulty in putting this person she is photographing at ease and winning their collaboration.
Her career is full of professional and commercial successes, she has taken part in numerous refresher training courses and workshops both in Italy and abroad: she organize photographic events and courses aimed at attaining the European qualification Q.I.P for Portrait photography in 2008.
