As a photographer and owner of the studio, Alessandro Della Savia considers it a privilege to witness unforgettable events and emotions, with the mission of creating value for his clients. The images he captures represent wonderful memories, unique experiences and emotions that will be cherished forever.
Portrait photography is an art that requires passion and culture, sensitivity and continuous dedication. He is committed to creating fresh and elegant images, reflecting his aesthetic research for the photographic style that identifies him as a storyteller.
Alessandro Della Savia began his career as a professional photographer working with some of the most important masters of architecture and interior photography in Milan, thus acquiring excellent technical and artistic knowledge of the field. This experience allowed him to develop a strong sensitivity towards light, perspective, and composition, which enables him to capture the aesthetic and functional aspects of architectural spaces to the best of his ability.
As an architecture photographer, Alessandro Della Savia is able to create suggestive and impactful images that best enhance the essence of the volumes and artworks he photographs.
Alessandro Della Savia
From a young age, he breathed the language of photography, feeling at home among images. After university, he decided to give voice to his sensitivity and aesthetic through the visual arts. Today, he has opened his own photographic studio in Milan, where he masterfully interprets professional photography, capturing emotions that last forever.
He says of himself: “Photography is an urgency for me, it’s my inner drive towards the search for a world of value. When I take pictures, my focus is on the people in front of the lens: what are they feeling in that moment? How can I translate their inner world into an image? In my relationship with my clients, my feeling is that we are together in the same story, sharing a part of life’s journey, of which I have the honor of being the witness through my shots.”
Wedding, Exclusive Events, Portraits and Photography Teacher
As an exclusive event photographer, Alessandro Della Savia captures emotions and atmosphere by remaining invisible and discreet, but attentive to every detail, telling the event and the people with a fresh and spontaneous reportage style. Capturing the essence of every memory and collecting important moments drives him to observe carefully and photograph emotions in an elegant way, allowing you to relive your most beautiful day or dream event.
As a portrait photographer, he creates empathy and trust with the person or people in front of the lens and translates their identity into light. He tells the person and their story in what we like to call “Personal Visual Storytelling,” a sincere and natural visual story of an individual and a special moment.
As a photography teacher, he shares his passion for this art and combines theoretical and practical learning methods for a complete and effective experience. He believes in confrontation as a source of inspiration and improvement, and therefore considers it very important to relate to students to understand the origin of their passion for photography: teaching is the best way to learn. This is a privilege reserved for those who dedicate their energies to improving themselves through confrontation.
I am a professional photographer always equipped with high-quality gear to ensure superior results. I continuously update my skills by participating in training courses to stay up to date with the latest trends and photographic techniques.
My goal is to provide excellent service for both business and private clients, capturing unique moments and creating unforgettable images that tell stories.
Some questions for the photographer
Alessandro Della Savia has been working as a photographer since 2008 and is the owner of a photography studio in Milan. We asked him, in his capacity as a photographer, to answer some questions to allow you to get inside his mind and understand what has driven him so far to photograph and teach, discover what is behind his work, and above all perceive his motivation and passion.
The Work of a Photographer
What does photography mean to you? To me, it means creating value through my shots, being a witness to an event or reader of a portrait. It means interpreting the world, to remember it and enhance it. We must always remember the depth and contribution that we put into what we do.
Photography is a visually stunning and sensitive art form. A single photograph can convey more than a film or a book can: it’s a language for communicating emotions and sensations. Just like a dancer, musician, or writer creates culture through their works, for me, photography is a means to artistically express my sensitivity.
Being able to translate into an image what was previously only present in my mind before taking the shot. And then, the satisfaction of the clients: knowing that I have been able to reconcile my sensitivity with their expectations is always a great achievement for me.
My first time in a darkroom was when I was twelve years old. Since then, I have always used the visual language to tell and capture my experiences. Today, after decades, my perception of photography and my relationship with it is still fresh and exciting.
This question brings to mind a quote by Pascal: “What vanity painting is, attracting admiration because of the resemblance of things of which we do not admire the originals.” If it is true that photography captures and represents an imprint of reality, in front of a portrait, we encounter a new person, similar yet unknown. In one word, unique. This new object trouvé is generated by the photographer, not the camera. Therefore, only the author can make their works unique.
The creation of a portrait is a performance where we focus our photographic vision, empathy, and affection for the subject (if we gain their trust), and the desire to create something out of nothing. It requires freedom of thought and interaction. Often, no more than 5 minutes are needed, but the intensity of those few moments can be incredibly high.
Having a broad photographic knowledge allows us to navigate without getting lost, but we should never suppress the sense of wonder that the sights before us can bring every day. We should have the desire to learn more and never take anything for granted: that’s how confidence is built, knowing that the right moment will always come.
If you want to become a photographer, you must first understand what it means to you, what role you have and how dedicated you are to photography. Do you want to improve your skills, take photos for fun, and share them online? Or do you want to make photography your profession and exhibit your work in museums and galleries? Always remember the depth and contribution you are putting into what you do.
There are plenty of ways to learn. It depends on how much time you have available: most people rely on online videos for technical skills, but real learning, knowledge, and confidence are gained by working alongside professional photographers, attending courses and workshops, to engage and see firsthand how it’s done.
You need to have a thorough understanding and knowledge of the tool you are using, but just like with a pair of skis or a motorcycle, technique is not the fun part but rather a means to have even more fun, capturing photos in every lighting condition and in places where nobody has ever thought of taking a photo before.
Emotions, gestures and gazes captured in weddings and exclusive events, of which the photographer has been an attentive witness, are the protagonists of his personal portfolio. As it emerges from his images, Alessandro Della Savia has a fresh and elegant style and always aims to create shots that enhance the moments and emotions portrayed.
