Hi, I’m Francesco Reffo, a creative photographer based in Padua (Italy).

BIO

Got a master degree in Modern Languages at the University of Padua and worked for some years as press officer and communications specialist in the fashion industry.
Began working as a full-time photographer at 25, developing a deep, sincere interest in people portraits, reportage and street photography.
Spent the last ten years shooting for national and international companies as commercial photographer and fotoreporter.
In 2021 I started my own business, opening STUFO, focusing my work on large format portraits. One year later I have been awarded the prestigious Pictures Of The Year International for the project “Face of Our Time”.
In 2023, together with a couple of dear friends, I founded GREEZO, a creative multimedia team.
