Rossella Vanon – London fashion and beauty photographer
My name is Rossella Vanon and I am a fashion and beauty photographer based in London, UK.
I was born in a small town in Italy and developed a love for art since the very early days. After devoting my teenage years to playing music instruments and obtaining a Sound Engineering & Music Business Degree, I developed a passion for photography that I was decided to grow into a full time business.
Years later and here we are. My client list includes names such as GHD and Lipsy, ELLE and Marie Claire magazines amongst others.
My work is defined by an attentive use of light and colour – two of my favourite things. I love spending time evaluating both before a shoot, planning a lighting setup that creates the exact mood I want the images to convey and colours that enhance that same feeling, all working in harmony with one another.
Apart from photographing, I enjoy taking care of the production of my shoots. Using my experience and valuable connections acquired from years in the fashion and beauty industry, I love to carefully evaluate each brand or collection to produce suitable shoot ideas, colours and lighting matching the client’s values, visuals and objectives. I cast for suitable models from top modelling agencies and gather a professional and friendly styling team that will execute the tasks to perfection.
Alongside photo shoots, I have been teaching renowned photography workshops in London since 2011, mentoring new photographers and enriching knowledge on topics ranging from Studio Lighting to model direction, from business to retouching. Teaching and meeting new photographers is a true pleasure for me. As a mentor, I also had the honour of making appearances for talks and seminars at high-profile events such as The Photography Show, Pure London and The Photographers’ Gallery.
I was lucky to have the opportunity to write a book along the way, fulfilling a dream I had since I was little. The book, named ‘Lighting People’, is a in-depth photography lighting guide focusing on the standard and creative use of studio lighting, published by ILEX / Octopus Press in late 2016.
