I'm Alessio Mesiano

I'm a travel photographer and...

I was born in 1982 in Italy. I’m based in Milano and in the Faroe Islands.

My creative soul brought me to be a photographer and also an architect.

I’m focused on travel photography which involves various other genres like landscape, animal, drone, architecture, reportage, event and wedding photography.

In 2008 I fell in love with the Faroe Islands and since then I’ve been travelling there very often. Thanks to several collaborations like with VisitFaroeIslands, G! Festival and thanks to my growing knowledge of the place, I’ve been able to create a huge photo stock of these remote islands placed in the North Atlantic Ocean.

About Me


”These photos made me fall in love with the Faroe Islands and convinced me to visit them. Your book is a beautiful collection of fantastic landscapes, animals and people. In case you are planning a trip or, even if you are not going, but the destination intrigues you, I recommend this wonderful book!“
”I bought two copies of your beautiful book, one for me and one for my nephew. We both love the Faroe Islands and we love your photos and your book! You are a great professional. Congratulations!“
”I have never been to the Faroes, but my mother was half Danish and half Faroese. My father was posted there during WW2. Alessio’s book brings the islands to life and my mother, when she was ill, loved to look at her homeland in glorious colours. I have given this small, but beautiful book, to two friends for a loan and they went on to buy a copy.“
”Your book is full of the most beautiful photos which together create an atmosphere and a sense that you could almost be there. There is a wonderful mix of nature, landscapes and the community. The photos really create a feeling of relaxation and calm as you view each page and the facts about the island are fascinating. I can understand why Alessio keeps returning to the Faroe.“
