Rocco watched his Dad in awe as he developed black and white photos in the darkroom at home and aged 5 he fell in love with photography. He studied at the Academy of Fine Art in Bologna and Facultad des Ballas Artes in Bilboa and went on to assist the likes of Annie Leibovitz. His main inspiration is music followed by art, films and books and of course the work of other photographers.
Working with both kids and adults his clients include Diesel Kids, Iceberg, Marni, Geox, Emporio Armani, Aston Martin and Trussardi and his editorials appear in leading titles such as Vanity Fair and Family Traveller.
Rocco speaks Italian, English and Spanish and his favourite food is, not surprisingly, pizza! He loves to visit New York, LA, Havana, Berlin and London with holidays in the warm waters of Mexico. Playing and listening to music is Rocco’s main passion outside of taking pictures which he does – a lot!
