Sam Scott Schiavo was born and raised in Philadelphia. After various adventures on both sides of the Atlantic, he has made Europe his home for over 20 years. After working nearly 18 years as a model agent in prestigious agencies in Milan, he left that sector of the fashion business to devote himself to photography and the arts full time. His very personal photography style has been influenced by his love for cinema, in particular film noir, neo realism and underground along with the great masters of photography and art. His images are natural yet often inherently erotic, lingering glances stirring ambiguous emotions, transporting us to past recollections in a contemporary present.
A continual collaboration with editorial and commercial clients, Sam has recently entered the world of short films, himself directing, filming and editing.
Also in the planning are exhibitions and the publication of his books ‘Fifteen’ and ‘Carnal Remains’.
Commissioned portraits and limited edition fine art prints are available upon request.
