For two decades, Montreal born photographer Patrizia Castiglione, has put in practice her keen passion for beauty and light.
Having studied in both cinema and photography, along with shooting analogue at the start of her career, has given her tools and a keen eye for detail. Her editorial work has brought her to various destinations around the globe. A passionate personality, with an entrepreneurial spirit and a witty sense of humour, Patrizia loves to collaborate with different teams. Making sure her clients leave with results that are nothing less than stellar.
In 2015 Pentax made her the first woman and only Canadian Ambassador for their brand. That brought various cities across Canada to speak about her journey as a photographer and to promote their gear.
When she’s not shooting for commercial clients, Patrizia continues to work on personal projects feeding her insatiable need to stay creative. As an extension of her love for photography, she shares her knowledge and experience as a professor at Dawson College’s Institute of Photography. And has done so, for over 15 years.
Some of her Quebec subjects have been creative talents such as Karine Vanasse, Alex Nevsky, Jessica Paré, Stéphane Rousseau, Dumas, Genevieve Borne, Roch Voisine, Véronique Cloutier, Mitsou, Jean-Francois Verreault, Julie Dupage, Jacynthe René, Julie St-Pierre, Normand Brathwaite and many more.
