International Society Photographer
Italiaander is recognised internationally not only as a leading portrait photographer, but as a highly skilled creative artist specialising in environmental photographic portraiture as well as video film production and direction working in the UK and abroad.
Past Chair of The Creative Portrait Circle, The London Portrait Group, and member of the prestigious Kodak Gold Circle, in 1994, Italiaander was invited to provide all portrait services for Harrods where The Italiaander Gallery was based from 1995 to 1999. Since then he has travelled extensively working on many prestigious projects.
Italiaander has created individual and family portraits for an amazing variety of people from every continent, including celebrities and members of The Brunei Royal Family, The Thai Royal Family and every Middle Eastern Royal Family.
In addition to the testing of printing papers for Ilford Imaging Switzerland and also the use of his images on Ilford Packaging, in 2009 he created a unique photographic fund-raising opportunity for under-privileged children called ‘Family Portrait Week’ which ran throughout the UK.
During the last few years, Italiaander has developed a unique concept, which takes the participants on a journey that culminates in the creation of a coffee-table book that will become one of their most treasured possessions, which creates a talking point with the utmost ‘WOW’ factor.
Italiaander comes from a long line of creative artisans originating in 16th century Venice. From wood-carving to spacecraft design, oil painting to his passion... photography.
Italiaander enjoys an astonishing rapport with his clients who he consults with throughout the projects he works on with the greatest attention to detail. His immense experience of working with members of Royalty, celebrities and international people provides him with the ability to put everyone at ease whether working in a private or corporate capacity.
Italiaander has been commissioned to create portraits for, amongst many others:
Ambassadors & High Commissioners
