In order to live a happy and fulfilled life, you have to look within and follow your passions. While this statement may seem as obvious as it is cliché, very few people have the self-awareness, access to resources, or the ability to act on that feeling. Emanuele D’Angelo is not one of them.
D’Angelo didn’t always know he wanted to travel the world photographing new cities, new landscapes and new people, but when he realized his passion, nothing could stop him. Despite a reliable and exciting career photographing celebrities and prominent events, D’Angelo wanted to raise awareness about climate change and nature with his photography. After a close friend, and fellow travel photographer, spoke to D’Angelo about the travel photography industry, a light bulb lit up in D’Angelo’s head. He quickly realized that he would live both a happier and more meaningful life if he combined his love of exploring new places and his desire to raise awareness about climate change with his love and talent for photography.
Since that moment, D’Angelo has never looked back. Today, the Italian photographer is a leading travel photographer who travels to new countries and continents to photograph anything he finds interesting. D’Angelo has traveled the world focusing on different cities and themes every time he travels, producing unique projects along the way.
Following his love of tropical beaches, intense sunsets and vivid colors, D’Angelo used to travel to South America to capture photographs of the cities, landscapes and the people who live there. D’Angelo traveled to Bogota and Cartagena in Colombia to photograph unique aspects of the surrounding towns, people and mountains. Additionally, D’Angelo is in love with the tropical and colorful capital of Brazil, Rio de Janeiro, having captured amazing photos of the city, the coast and the locals. D’Angelo also visited Argentina’s cultural and bohemian epicenter, Buenos Aires, on one of his travel photography tours. D’Angelo is on the recording stating that he loves South America and its cities very much because of their mix of epic landscapes, cultural variety and vibrant colors.
In terms of projects, D’Angelo always finds ways to display and organize his work in a creative way. When it comes to published books, D’Angelo has two. After spending a fall season in Tokyo, Japan, D’Angelo assembled a collection of his photographs titled “October in Tokyo”. After being fascinated by the motorcycle culture of Los Angeles, especially the low rider culture of Los Angeles, D’Angelo traveled to LA and spent a lot of time photographing enthusiasts in the city for his book titled “Baby Let’s Cruise “.
D’Angelo recently developed a passion for drone photography. The young travel photographer traveled to the island of Iceland in Northern Europe to photograph landscapes that would be incredibly difficult, if not impossible, to capture without drone technology.
True to his passions and interests, D’Angelo is also known to photograph as many tennis courts as possible, wherever he goes.
