Curriculum vitae

Marco Ravenna is a freelance photographer specialising in Italian  cultural heritage.

With more than thirty years’ experience and around 100 published volumes , Marco Ravenna has also organised entire photography campaigns, of which he has curated every logistical and organisational aspect. 

The Marco Ravenna photographic archive currently contains 50.000 shots in large format film.

Due to the nomadic nature of his job, he has also specialised in outdoor photography and setting up in different kind of places.

His lessons, both held at institutional level and through private courses, represent one of the main activities of its genre in Italy and a concrete connection between real professional practice and the ability to transmit it to others.

Marco Ravenna, owner of the studio, took an interest and specialised in the fine arts. From the very beginning (1974), he gained a scholarship in the Cultural Heritage course put out by the Emilia Romagna region, during which time he had the opportunity of meeting a great teacher, Paolo Monti. The frequenting of Monti, as that of another great teacher, Mario Carrieri, and the attendance of specialisation courses at Chinon (Francia) and at Rochester NY at the Visual Art School, allowed for the realisation of higly professional images, obtained by the use of the most up-to-date instruments and of an eye that "knows how to see".
More than thirty years of work and attentive editing of his own images, has given life to the Marco Ravenna Photographic Archive viewable at.
