Florence Male Fashion Week: Pitti Uomo

Pitti Immagine Uomo is twice a year a fixed appointment in the studio agenda: the possibility to collaborate with Pitti Immagine organization lead us to develop the Instaxpitti project you can check in the previous post. ...

For the 92nd edition of Pitti Immagine Uomo, I've been asked to develop further more the InstaxPitti project that I've started back in January. Let's see to recap it: during the Pitti Immagine Uomo fair, I'm stopping some of the attendees to pose for me for a picture. I chose the one that I like the most for color and general interest in the outfit they wear....

In this post, I'm going to share one of the most interesting sessions I had at the last Pitti Immagine Uomo. I had the idea that was nice to go to shoot outside the usual, and much photographed, place of the Fortezza da Basso. So we set a session in the streets of Florence, and honestly to say, we were more staying close to Piazza Della Repubblica....

On this post, I share the photos I took for Salomon during the last Pitti Immagine Uomo in Florence. Salomon is a very cool guy from Washington DC, he's attending Pitti Uomo from some editions and I've to say that he's one of the most photogenic of the group! He can really know how to strike a pose!...

Here's the photos shoot for Omer during the 91th edition of Pitti Immagine Uomo in Florence. It's always a pleasure to collaborate with Omer since he's a good model! Omer owns his brand called "Domini Forte" and for this edition of Pitti Uomo he was wearing is own creation during the days of the event in Florence....

Some photos taken for Fadi during the 91th edition of Pitti Immagine Uomo in Florence. Fadi request me to do some picture for his Instagram account and want some photos in the iconic main square inside the fortezza: that is a very good spot since you can catch all the interesting guests that attend the event during the week!

Today I want to show you the photos I've shoot for Mr. Defustel. Defustel Ndjoko is an Afro-Belgium influencer and fashion consultant that is attending to Pitti Uomo for some years. I had the pleasure to start to collaborate with him for the photos some years ago. Is always a pleasure to work with him: an example of elegance outside and inside!

This 91th edition of Pitti Uomo has been for me quite busy and with big satisfaction. On one side I was asked to take some photos of friends attending the fair (soon their gallery will come on this blog), on the other side I was developing the Instax Pitti project (link) that has been has been published on the official Pitti Immagine organization website and internationally on PetaPixel, Lomography and Digifoto Pro Netherlands.

For the 91th edition of the male fashion fair "Pitti Immagine Uomo" in Florence, i got the idea to use the Fujifilm Instax film to create a little photo project with some of the visitors.

The idea was to photograph the guests with the Instax camera, then to re-photograph them with the digital camera. The Instax film was going to be a gift for the guest while the digital picture has been published on the official website of the Pitti Immagine Uomo organization.

During the last 90th Pitti Uomo in Florence I've developed a photographic project called "#luckymatch" for the Pitti Immagine organization. The project has been pubblished on their official website (here's the link) and now I'm repubblishing it here on my blog. I want to point out that this series has been created as a sort of game where random numbers of the cards given to the person would match another person by casuality. Here are the #luckymatch I've spotted at the last Pitti Uomo event!

This edition of Pitti Uomo has been particularly rich and challenging for me. On the one side I have developed a photo project for Pitti Immagine (published on their website at this link); then I was contacted by the Belgian fashion blogger and influencer Defustel who asked me to follow him photographically during the fair. Was a big pleasure for me 'cause not only he's an icon of style inside the fashion world, then he's also a very kind and positive man!

Pitti Uomo in Firenze is always a great occasion to meet some interesting people and get back home with some nice and colorful pictures! In this post there's lot of colorful pictures from the fair days! ...

During the last Pitti Uomo I was contacted by the fashion blogger Sani Starr who needed to take pictures for his blog and website during the famous Florence’s fair. In the two days scheduled for the photos at Pitti Uomo’s fair, Sani wore two different outfits that were perfectly matching with the theme "Pitticolor" of this edition. As for the photos previously proposed, these images were taken trying the Fuji X-T1 and the 35mm f/1.4, used almost always as open as possible. I also tried shooting with the electronic shutter that allows extremely fast shutter speeds (up to 1 / 32,000 sec!), useful when we want to use large apertures (as in my case f/1.4), and we are dealing with a lot of sun light. Again I was extremely surprised and happy (and Sani it was too!) with Fujifilm color output from photos, which were slightly retouched in contrast and white balance using Adobe Lightroom.
