For this episode of Local Business Spotlight, we had the pleasure of featuring the work of Guido Venitucci, a professional photographer based in Brooklyn, NY.
Guido’s photographs truly bring out a rich personality in his subjects’ photos and we wanted to hear more about how he is able to capture this in his work.
Born in Rome, Italy Guido studied Drama and after coming to the US in 1994, worked for many years in theatre and TV while practicing photography as a hobby. In fact, fellow actors and workers on the sets became his first subjects as he honed in on his craft and became more and more interested in it as a profession.
He spent some time teaching acting and later opened his own theatre/acting studio in Manhattan called “The Actor’s Playground” with his wife Heather.
Guido believes that it’s through his experience as an actor, producer, and director that he is able to capture something special in each of his photography subjects.
Through hard work and generous referrals, Guido gained recognition for his portraits and commercial work in the health and beauty industries.
