Hi, I'm Paolo Priori and I'm 24 years old. Born in Como and resident in the wonderful Intelvi Valley, defined as the "Green Bridge" between Lake Como and Lake Lugano (Switzerland). After completing my high school studies in administration, finance and marketing, I completed the production photography course at the Mohole school in Milan. Passionate about this fascinating job, I decided to continue with the family business which has a photography studio called Foto Idea in Centro Valle Intelvi. I immediately started photographing weddings and events, covering the role of my father's assistant and over the years I became the main wedding photographer of the studio, leaving the task of videomaker to him. In February 2020 I obtained both drone licenses for standard scenarios and critical scenarios. In November 2022 a work experience totally changed my way of thinking and seeing photography.


In November 2022 I was lucky enough to work on a film set for the Amazon Prime Video series "Mr and Mrs Smith" as a photographer assistant to David Lee, brother of the well-known director Spike Lee, who greatly influenced my way of photographing and seeing things with great attention to detail, framing and composition. I always try to propose these values ​​that David taught me in my photographic style, combining them above all with the uniqueness and spontaneity of the moment, also giving great importance to the beauty of the background that will frame the image. I prefer color photography with warm tones because in my opinion these characteristics give greater joy to the photo.

Since January 2024 I decided to start my own business, so I opened a VAT number as a professional photographer. The desire to get involved was and still is really great and I would like one day my name and my way of working to be a point of reference for all those looking for a professional photographer on Lake Como and beyond...
