~ TRAVELING PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER, STYLIST and MAKE UP ARTIST ~ ~ Film and digital photography since 1997 ~ ~ AIRF (Associazione Italiana FotoReporter) Member 712 ~ ~ All Concepts, Styling, Makeup, Painting and Handmade Accessories by Roberto Manetta ~ Roberto Manetta started his professional photographic career in 1997. He specializes in Fine Art photography and Reportage, including projects that have slowly delved into a very personal search of the mixing and marrying of so called "Creative Nudes". As a freelance photographer, Roberto is particularly popular for managing a very suggestive use of shadow and light in portraits and street photography and shows a great skill in creating a pleasant blend of characters and documention by telling visual stories of places and of the people who are crossing them. After many years of study he has gone from analogic to digital but always trys hard to keep to the ideals, the form and details of classical photography. He lives and works in Rome, where he continues to maintain an active "photographic idea" about the creative photography, showing his work in galleries and art spaces of the capital. Since 2004, he works closely with several artistic groups in the representation of dance, theater and the performing arts related to music. He is also shooting for Actress / Actors agencies in Rome. His photographs have appeared in many national and international books and magazines devoted to the Art of Photography.
