Mattia Balsamini


I was born on September 24th 1987 in Pordenone, Italy. In 2008 I moved to Los Angeles, California and freelance assisted fashion, still life and advertising photographers around the world for two years. I really liked moving power chords, c-stands and flags for them. In June 2010 I started assisting David LaChapelle on set and behind the computer for retouching work, then I magically graduated with a Bachelor in advertising photography at Brooks Institute, Santa Barbara.

Now I’m back in Italy, I work out of my small studio space in Venice but often I find myself traveling elsewhere.  I love bread, apples, warm weather and fast alpine skiing.
