Alessandro Sigismondi was born in Turin, Italy, in 1974 and attended the University of Turin. After enrollment and for 16 years, he made his way up the corporate ladder, becoming the creative deputy director of the leading advertising company Italia Brand Group. In 2012 he left the corporate world and moved to India with his wife Paula and son Leo to study yoga. He intended to become a yoga teacher while there, but he soon realized his true calling in life: as a yoga and movement photographer and filmographer. Since then, he has built a huge portfolio, photographing the world’s most influential teachers such as Kino MacGregor and Dharma Mitra and working with world-renowned brands such as OHMME Apparel, Liforme and big-name studios such as Pure Yoga in Hong Kong and Triyoga in London. Alessandro has a lot of passion in his work and thinks that sharing images that are both aesthetically beautiful and deeply authentic can inspire more people to embrace a healthy lifestyle such as yoga. While he may work on set with big crews or be a one-man crew himself, he is always focused on making the camera look comfortable and at ease, to allow them to fully express their best version of themselves. Alessandro is based in Turin, Italy, but constantly travels around the world. His reach and influence is extensive with over 70,000 subscribers on his Youtube channel and 37,000 followers on Instagram.
