Carlo Pascolini's passion for photography began when his parents bought a camera for him on his thirteenth birthday. It kept him out of trouble and gave him direction and freedom while growing up in Kansas City,Missouri. Soon he was building a darkroom with his father,Asterio,who taught him the basics of photography. Upon graduating high school,he took a position as an assistant at a photo studio with twelve photographers,each with their own distinct style. It gave him an education in the field while he saved money to attend Brooks Institute of Photography. Upon leaving Brooks,he was employed at a fast paced studio where eventually became a photographer. In 1997,he fulfilled his dream of opening Carlo Pascolini Photography and enjoyed a career in advertising and editorial photography. His work has been featured in magazines and print,as well as on TV and the web. After many years in this ever-changing environment,he felt he needed to search for more fulfilling work that truly spoke from his heart. Carlo decided to reinvent himself as a fine art photographer, shooting the people and places of America and Italy,showing similarities and distinctions between the two. He continues to travel and photograph people and places that resonate with viewers everywhere.
