Diego Restivo Photography | About

THE PHOTOGRAPHER

 

My name is Diego Restivo, I come from Italy and I am based in Hilversum together with my wife and our 5 year old boy. 

 

I am full-time "go to clients" photographer in the field of Portraiture Photography. My focus is pointed to the human beings and to their ability to communicate through their body language. In particular, I am fascinated by the diversity of the expressions, the postures and the gestures that generate this “language”, and I like to “capture” all of this, from different lights and from different perspectives by using a creative approach.

 

Creativity, passion, patience, friendly personality, years of experience in working with people from different cultures and ages, are the top ingredients that enable me to succeed in what I do. This mix makes me grow as a person as well as a professional, and it keeps expanding my creative mind.

GENERAL NOTES:

 

 

- Generally, the duration of a photo shoot is 2 hours, and it is a lot of fun!

- I appreciate some people are a little uncomfortable in front of the camera, I will guide you through the shoot to ensure everyone looks natural and relaxed.

- Possibility to shoot in location. Entry fee (ticket) to the location, should this apply, is not included in the photo service. 

- For outdoor shoot the best time is in the morning or late afternoon (2-3 hrs before sunset). Mid day shoots are not advisable.

- What should you wear in a photo-shoot? Clothes should reflect your personality, medium to darker colors are the best, because they are more flattering your body. Avoid stripes, loud patterns or logos. Women should not wear heavy make-up please. For young child, bright colors can be appropriate, and timeless white dresses are lovely for a little girl. For babies, the more skin showing the better! Bare feet are the best. In general, prior to each photo-shoot, I will advise you what the best way of dressing is.

- No travel costs within the Netherlands

- Advance booking fee (20% of the cost of the photo-shoot session) is due at the moment of the photo-shoot booking.

- All prices include 21% VAT
