My name is Francesco Paratici and Lo Scatto is my photography blog.
I started shooting live events back in Italy when I was just a kid and I’ve never stopped.
These days I shoot a lot of street photography. Street to me is a very important discipline. It is about capturing the our everyday life. It creates a portrait of the society and times, if not the trends, we are living through – it should open our eyes to our lives today, but also capture it for posterity. There are thousands of shutterbugs across the world. I feel proud to be one of them.
Landscape is also something I really enjoy. Capturing the beauty of nature or just the magic of a city at night. Nature is the theatre we are all acting in. It is magic, unique and astonishing.
That said, I truly love interacting with people. Portraits, events and weddings give me a chance to be around people and picture their personality, their feelings, their sentiments.
Photography is the biggest passion of my life. A life without passion it’s a life not lived in full.
