My style is a mixture of portraiture and photojurnalism. I love telling a story through my photos, that's why you won't find any rigid posed shot in my portfolio. I love focusing on details, as they are what makes every experience different. I always try to show the best side of everyone who is in front of my lens. When I shoot, I want it to be a funny experience from my clients to remember! As a photographer, I also shoot wedding and brands.
- I am a photographer and also a student! I have a bachelor in Modern Languages (specifically in English and Russian) and I'm now studying Linguistics at the University of Padua.
- I love simple things and those cosy little moments that warm your hearts: watching a film, reading books, taking my dog for a walk. As I'm pretty busy during the week, I like to spend my free time with my friends and loved ones, maybe in front of a nice cup of coffee or having a walk. I also exercise a bit - running is a really relaxing activity!
- I couldn't live without my camera and my granny's tortellini.

Customer Love for Matteo
"Working with Matteo was incredible! We are not necessarily people who love being in the spotlight, but his warm, fun personality immediately set us at ease for our shoot. We really appreciated Matteo's documentary approach-- he captured genuine moments between us as we traipsed through the city, offering direction in a minimally intrusive way. By the end of the shoot, we were comfortable, confident that he had created some great images of our honeymoon, and felt like we had made a friend in the process. We highly recommend booking your shoot with Matteo!" - Austin
"It was obvious from the first minute that Matteo was a true professional who loved his job. We were stressed because we were running late due to some issues checking into our hotel. I called Matteo who put me totally at ease assuring me he would wait for us. He knew all the perfect spots for pictures and also encouraged our own input. If you are planning a Venice photo shoot, ask for Matteo." - George
"Matteo was incredible and put the two of us, usually uncomfortable in front of the camera, at complete ease. We had fun and even forgot he was snapping photos! He struck the perfect balance of making suggestions and allowing for candid photos, which led to an amazing array of photos when we returned from our trip. Should we be back in Italy anytime soon, we will definitely be using him for more photos! " - Chauntae
"Matteo was a joy to work with. He understood our desires. We are from Venice and wanted photos of the "Hidden Venice" and he loved the idea and truly made it happen,." - Victor
"Matteo is amazing! He met us right on time as planned. He was very friendly, he made an effort to get to know us and made sure we felt comfortable. He was very good at giving small tips here and there during our shoot. He was also very accommodating as we were walking we saw a few spots we wanted to take pictures in. If you are visiting Venice, I highly recommend Matteo! Oh and wait until you see your photos. " - Brandon
"We were fortunate enough to work with Matteo while on vacation in Venice last week. Our pictures are gorgeous, and Matteo was so much fun to work with. Matteo made the whole shoot relaxed and fun, which showed in our pictures! We were both apprehensive about the shoot- and were quite nervous coming into the shoot- and Matteo quelled all our anxiety in the first 10 min intro and walk to the first site. Matteo was phenomenal, the pics were beautiful (we're even debating using them for our save the dates this month)." - Casandra
"Matteo was wonderful, and made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. We were not used to getting our pictures taken and he was so encouraging. Our photos were finished so quickly and we're so happy with them!" - Mara
