About
Paolo Benini excels at helping clients improve the perception of their brand. From his previous engineering career he learnt how to solve problems. He prefers listening over speaking.

Paolo Benini is a Melbourne based commercial photographer, with unique vision, specialising in Food, Portraiture/Fashion and Architecture. He loves surprising his clients and always over-delivers.

Paolo Benini brings a strong European sensibility to every image he creates. The Melbourne-based photographer grew up in Bologna, in northern Italy. He first began honing his craft seriously 16 years ago, shooting on film with an entry-level Nikon, fascinated with the rich landscapes, evocative light and ancient history of his homeland.

"I felt the need to connect to something bigger than myself," he says. "In Italy, everywhere you go, even to a very small town, you can find a castle; and if you live there your entire life, it's embedded in you." Such sensibilities continue to influence his work in Australia today.

Benini and his family moved to Melbourne in 2010, and soon after, he left a 20-year career as a software engineer. He'd always nurtured a passion for photography, but it was something he indulged in after his working day was done. It took him a while to realise what real career satisfaction meant.

"I think the mistake people make is to just adapt - to silence the voice inside," he says. "The voice saying you're changing, and need to live a fulfilling life. I decided not to silence that voice."

Now he works as a full-time photographer. His style is poetic, whimsical, and romantic, and he seeks beauty in every image. He particularly enjoys shooting in black and white. "It's a way to simplify things; to find the essence," he says. "I like to find poetry in light, and I love working with people that share the same vision and soul."

"Paolo is more than a photographer, he is an artist... a storyteller; with a gift of capturing fleeting everyday moments and transmitting them into tales with feeling and soul.
He is deep, thought provoking and his subject matter is real, urban and relevant. Most of all he is passionate... and this is the fire that keeps his work burning with life.
Every now and then someone special comes along in their given field.
Paolo is one of them." - Silvio Cimenti - Creative Director & Brand Consultant at Engine Room Ltd - UK

Testimonials

Anna Gallo, Olivigna
I have used the services of Paolo Benini Photography on several occasions, to conduct a professional photo shoot of our estate food and winery. I can highly recommend Paolo Benini. He has delivered high-quality commercial photography, showcasing our food product in a relaxed and professional manner every time. Paolo was creative and strategic, focused and proactive. Through his work, it is evident he has a trained eye of experimenting with various textures, elements, lights and properties of food and beverages. Paolo was a pleasure to work with and impressively, always available to offer advise even at short notice. The results of his work continues to resonate in my business, with increased client bookings, coming directly from exposure Paolo has been instrumental in achieving. If you are seeking a professional photographer that makes a difference, you can engage in the services of Paolo Benini Photography with confidence.

We engaged Paolo for professional portraits and medical based photography to illustrate approaches of medical examination in orthopaedics. Our company is using these images for our website and educational activities thus requiring high professional standards. The photos Paolo provided are extremely beautiful, clean and sharp. He achieved with precision the information these images need to transfer to our audience. With the staff portraits he captured the true essence of each personality. All in all we are extremely satisfied with Paolo's work and will continue to work with him in future.
