Marco Benedetti is a Swiss photographer with Italian roots. He has been active behind the camera since as early as 1990.

He loves using available light when possible, putting more importance to the excellent management of his analogue and digital cameras than to external props and photo retouching.
At the beginning of his photographic career, he indulged mainly in sports photography for several international martial arts magazines. Later on, inspired by his deep appreciation for beauty and people, he extended his work to different aspects of people photography, mainly portrait, fashion and artistic nude.
