AUBERGINE STUDIO is a still and motion photo studio with latin soul and creativity, anglo-saxon approach and Italian touch. The studio is mainly run by two skilled and creative international photographers and directors, Francesco Majo and Nataly Cadavid that after being living and working in Milan, London and Paris for over 20 years, moved to the sunny Barcelona in early 2015 lot develop a personal project. In December 2016 they moved back to Paris with great enthusiasm and new fresh ideas.
The photographic duo are married and work as a team. They met in Italy where they both studied at the European Institute of Design in Milan. Francesco studied photography and also later received a degree in Travel Journalism in London. Nataly moved from Colombia to Italy to study art direction and graphic design.
They love the challenge of taking something ordinary and transforming it into something extraordinary. The love for photography and personal research gave them the opportunity to collaborate with some of the greatest and most talented art directors, designers, prop and food stylist to create beautiful work for a different range of international clients. They love to travel and explore the flavours and cuisines the world has to offer.
The duo started their career regularly shooting lifestyle for Italian Elle and then they discovered food photography.
