Leading the session - Amedeo Castellani

Amedeo Castellani was born in London and attended art school in Rome in the 1970s. After the Liceo Artistico he worked at Cinecitta' film studios for two years before returning to London to work as a jobbing photographer from a studio in Hammersmith. Here he specialised in portraiture, model's portfolio shots, public relations, product and fashion photography using 35mm, medium format and large format cameras. There was also a brief flirtation with photojournalism working for two Scandinavian daily newspapers.
