Valerio Mezzanotti, Fashion and Portrait Photographer.

I graduated in 1996 from the “Roberto Rossellini” School of Cinematography and Television in Rome.

In the same year I moved to Paris where I started working for ELLE, and as a photographer’s assistant.

In 2001, I started my twenty-year collaboration with The New York Times, taking portraits and photographing the Milan and Paris fashion weeks, my photos have been published in articles by Cathy Horyn, Suzy Menkes, Vanessa Friedman and Guy Trebay.

In 2010 I created NOWFASHION, the first website to publish fashion show photos in real time, and until 2019 I was also the Creative Director.

In all these years I have had the honour of collaborating with many prestigious magazines and the biggest fashion brands worldwide.

In 2020, after 25 years of living abroad, I moved back to Rome and I regularly work in Milan and Paris.
