I'm Alessio Mesiano

I'm a travel photographer and...

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

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

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.
