Thanks for stopping by! My name’s Paolo Rubini and I’m a professional photographer based in Vancouver, Canada. If you like my work then don’t hesitate to reach out.
My Kind of Photography
Paolo developed his passion for photography while travelling through different countries throughout his early twenties. Fascinated by the opportunity to capture elements of different cultures – or moments of unusual beauty hidden in everyday life – he later was inspired to move toward a more personal and intimate perspective of reality. With this approach, he started to explore the possibility of composing images with a deeper conceptual impact, whilst reflecting his own emotional landscapes and visual art influences more clearly.
Before moving to Vancouver, Canada, where he currently lives, Paolo attended several photography classes in Mexico City and New York City. He now continues to develop his style, shooting freelance in North America and focusing mostly on conceptual photography, urban photography, environmental portraiture, and still life.
His current work explores the relationships human beings form with their environments, and the usage of panning techniques and long exposure to capture time, motion and urban feelings.
When travelling Paolo still enjoys capture the essence of different cultures with a photo-journalistic approach that borrow from the aesthetic of the film photo-reporter Masters of the past century.
Rubini is currently a featured artist of Time Frame Gallery and has been previously in the roster of Fast Frames and Davie Art.
His latest projects were exhibition in Vancouver and include “Stillness in Motion”, “At the seaside”, “Pulse with life” and “Light paints”.
His current, ongoing project “Hands On” has been selected by Capture Photography Festival, 2019.
What People Say About Me
