Paolino is originally from Genova, Italy and has been residing in Los Angeles since the year 2000.
At 14 years of age, he borrowed his Mom’s Kodak Instamatic and armed with film from his grandfather, he started shooting moments of his life. He fell in love with the photography because he realized that it was a way to freeze memories that would otherwise be lost. When he moved to the US, he bought a digital camera and realized the full potential of editing the photos, like having his own personal darkroom in his head.
After shooting at a friend’s wedding, Paolino was commissioned by various individuals for portraits. He found shooting portraits too static for his creativity, and explored new frontiers that allowed him more artistic expression, such as fashion, editorials, alternative, and avant-garde.
Paolino likes to express with photography the feeling and mood that his models have in that one special, irreplaceable moment. He believes that it is a way to capture one’s self, in a personal, vision of the world. Paolino has more than 20 years of experience in Adobe Photoshop and likes to manage his shoots from start to finish, to produce the results and control the quality that he holds to. Photography, he says, it's about commitment, dedication and attention to details.
