About photographer Michael Campanella
My name is Michael Campanella. I am a freelance photographer based in Stockholm, Sweden specializing in sports photography. Originally I hail from Vicenza, which is in northern Italy, but I have been living and working in Stockholm, Sweden since 2002.
Always having been attracted to photography it was in Stockholm that I decided to make it and part of my education and pursue it as a career. After focusing on film & photography at a university level I began working on film & television productions. And since 2006 I have worked regularly on a wide variety of productions, everything from feature films, television commercials, documentaries, and music videos.
While I greatly enjoyed working on film productions, I found that longed to be behind the camera and started looking for assignments that would grant more opportunities as a still photographer. In 2010 I began working as a sports photographer, covering matches for websites and various online publications. A year later I began working with Pic-Agency, a Swedish picture agency. Through Pic-Agency I have been covering some of the biggest sporting events in Stockholm and have seen my work regularly published by Sweden’s leading newspapers.
I hope you enjoy my work and my website. If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact me.
