Stefano Germi was born in Prato, Italy, in 1969.
He studied music but didn't finish the study.
Mostly self-taught, a part the basic that his father taught him. He attended the Tuscany Photographic Workshop where he studied the Zone System with Willie Osterman and Black and White Print Basic and Advance techniques with Jim Megargee.
He started using large format with a 4x5", using it for some years, when he attended an Andrea Modica's workshop, where Stefano was fascinated by 8x10" camera.
He bought a 8x10" view camera, photographing exclusively with it, committed himself to contact print.
This new adventure allowed to him to meet during the workshop "Vision and Technique" Michael A. Smith and Paula Chamlee, a master of contact print, showing them his works and they were astonished by my "Graffiti".
Now he started to get the base of a new landscape project, where he decided to use also color, and a project about Chinese's family in my city.
