Catania CT, Italy
A never-ending surprise…a great emotion! This is how I describe my passion for photography. A relationship born when I was a boy and never ended. It captivated me so much that it has become my job. I love true photography that tells without cheating, that reproduces the magic of a gaze or a heartbreaking landscape.
I was born in Modica, a noble, ancient and in some features modern town, full of history, traditions and contradictions. Its light, its shadows and the velvet touch of the sun going down are always present in my photos.
I have always taken advantage of any chance to travel and go explore Europe. I have taken plenty of pictures, I have met various photographic souls, discovered various viewpoints, numerous lights and atmospheres. I have unconsciously absorbed their being, and all of this has become Marco Ficili today.
My technical education has followed a more conventional path. Thanks to photography schools and courses, I had the opportunity to visit and live in cities like Milan, Florence, London and Berlin.
In 2000 I opened my photography studio in Catania, the city I live in. I started working in advertising, in the publishing industry and studio portrait photography.
I had the pleasure to be mentioned, awarded and published by WPJA “Wedding Photo Journalism Association”, TAU VISUAL, White Sposa and Vogue Sposa.
Did I get any awards? Some, the right ones for an excellent résumé!
