BRIEF BIOGRAPHY

Photographer

Dr Peter Blombery

Paolo Benini

in-House Photographer
Paolo Benini brings a strong European sensibility to every image he creates. The Melbourne-based photographer grew up in Bologna, in northern Italy. He first began honing his craft seriously 17 years ago, shooting on film with an entry-level Nikon, fascinated with the rich
landscapes, evocative light and ancient history of his homeland.
Paolo and his family moved to Melbourne in 2010, and soon after, he left a 20-year career as a software engineer. He’d always nurtured a passion for photography, but it was something he indulged in after his working day was done. Now he works as a full-time photographer. He particularly enjoys shooting in black and white. “It’s a way to simplify things; to find the essence,” he says. “I like to find poetry in light, and I love working with people that share the same vision and soul.”
