London, 1966

After taking a degree in Documentary Photography at the University of Wales, Newport Colin moved to Italy in 2002 where he lives with his wife and two children. Specialised in portraits, advertising, interiors and editorial commissions his clients are spread around Italy, Europe, Australia and the United States.

Colin shoots mostly on-location but he can rent a studio when required. Drawing on his documentary background he takes a thoughtful, considered approach to his photography. He speaks fluent Italian, he has a friendly, well-behaved assistant and he lives in a beautiful part of the world with easy access to locations around the Mediterranean area.

A finalist in the Hasselblad Masters Award, 2021, Colin continues to develop his own personal projects for books and exhibitions and he presents talks and workshops on contemporary photographic practice. He also edits the work of other photographers, writes articles for the Manfrotto School of Excellence and teaches in the Masters program at BraveArt Academy. He is currently Artistic Director of Venetofotografia.


Un fotografo inglese che abita in Italia dal 2002.

Finalista  'Hasselblad Masters 2021', Colin è specializzato in fotografia di interni, food e ritratti per aziende, giornali e agenzie di pubblicità sia in Italia che all'estero.

Oltre i suoi lavori commerciali Colin presenta workshop e mostre  fotografiche,  è docente presso BraveArt Accademy , scrive per la Manfrotto School of Xcellence ed è Direttore Artistico dell'Associazione Venetofotografia.
