About Me - Pia Parolin

About Me

Born and raised in Italy, I studied biology in Germany and in Brazilian Amazonia. Passionate tropical ecologist with PhD, I always carry my camera with me since the day my father gave me the first Minolta at the age of 9. Living on the French Riviera since 2005, I love to capture light, colours and movements.

I started artistic photography in 2017 with my first series "Promenade Moments". I capture blurred movements with people passing by on the Promenade des Anglais in Nice.

In 2018, I focus on "People´n´Art" - people standing in front of art works in museums.

For 2019, my new project will be "Rainy Windows", with street scenes captured through windows with rain drops.

In order to share my passion, I organize weekend photo workshops on the French Riviera, high quality and low price, with the aim to have a lot of communication and fun and learn from reknown (street) photographers whom I invite to my place on the French Riviera to share a weekend with other interested photographers - much in the tradition of the Côte d´Azur artists of the 50s who gathered in the beautiful villas along the coast to be creative, share ideas, get inspired and be productive.

I take my pictures with my Olympus E-M5 II and a Fujifilm X100F. I keep postproduction at a minimum and try to take the picture in its almost final form right away with my camera.

I am a member of the Fédération Photographique de France FPF and Antibes Photo Club APC.
