LIVE ACT PHOTO SERVICE

Live Act Photo Service_by Fede

Are you in Milan with your band for a live show/showcase or a recording session?

I am a photographer/essayist/music journalist, member of f/50 The International Photography Collective.

I’ve been in the music business for more than twenty years. Now, I am a columnist for Swiss Pnp Magazine and for Indiana Music Magazine and a contributing author/photographer for Fuji X Passion and Olympus Passion magazines.

In my ROCK MUSIC ARCHIVES you can find people like Iggy Pop, Chris Cornell & Soundgarden, Wayne Kramer & MC5, Soft Machine and indie/underground musicians too.

If you are tired of the usual boring photo sessions, please contact me. In addition to the live performance I can also photograph all the soundcheck & backstage situations. (Photo: Me and Zara McFarlane at Blue Note, Milan, 2018 – by Federico Ramponi)

LET YOUR PICS TELL A STORY

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Let your pictures tell a story. During the years as photographer/journalist/essayist and curator I’ve always looked for a personal narrative that could help me put a story together in a thoughtful way. Very soon I’ve felt bored by the dangerous & sticky idea of “beautiful images.” The ability of storytelling – a deep love for History and the need for different languages – is now the main difference between a “catcher of beautiful images” (closer to a lone collector) and a photographer who is a visual artist.
Please contact me – this is my e-mail: ceschimatteo@gmail.com – if you feel the wish and the urgency to let your pictures talk! I can help you arrange your stories in a professional way.
