Alessandro Sigismondi was born in Torino, Italy, in 1974 and attended the University of Turin. Upon matriculation and for 16 years, he worked his way up the corporate ladder, becoming the deputy creative director at the top advertising company Italia Brand Group. In 2012, he quit the corporate world and moved to India with his wife Paula and young son Leo to study yoga. He intended to become a yoga teacher while there but soon realized his real calling in life – as a yoga and movement photographer and filmographer. Since then, he has built a huge portfolio, shooting the world’s most influential teachers like Kino MacGregor and Dharma Mitra, and working with globally-known brands like Liforme, Mandala, OHMME Apparel, as well as big-name studios like Pure Yoga in Hong Kong and Triyoga in London. Alessandro has a lot of passion for his job and thinks that sharing images that are both aesthetically beautiful and deeply authentic can inspire more people to embrace a healthy lifestyle like yoga. While he can work on set with big crews or be a one-man crew himself, he’s always focused on making who is in front of the camera comfortable and at ease, to let them fully express the better version of themselves. Alessandro is based in Turin, Italy, but constantly travels globally. His reach and influence are wide with 122.000 subscribers on his Youtube channel and 47,000 followers on Instagram.
