Settimio Benedusi Milan photographers

Born in Imperia under the Gemini star sign, viscerally curious and armed with an unbreakable determination, Settimio Benedusi has published images commercially and in major magazines.

Over the years, he has shot numerous celebrity covers and produced editorials and advertising work including beachwear, fashion, kids and products for brands such as Versace, Northsail, Fusco, Cantine Ferrari, Miss Blumarine, Iceberg, Winston, Seventy, Take Two, Fisico and many others. For seven consecutive years Settimio has participated as the only Italian photographer with famous swimsuit magazine Sports Illustrated.

He has shot portraits of the cremè-de-la-cremè of Italian society, from Silvio Berlusconi to Giorgio Armani, Gianfranco Ferrè, the Missoni spouses and Alberta Ferretti. His frenetic positivity has led him to extend his activities beyond the profession into teaching, putting on exhibitions, holding conferences and participating in television programmes.

Settimio's profession means he has the great privilege of travelling throughout the world, producing photo shoots in some of the most diverse and incredible locations.
