My name is Diana Scalfati and I'm an Italian photographer and filmmaker. My journey to where I am today started after graduating in Cinematography and working on a documentary for the United Nations Development Programme about the importance of water as a resource in different parts of the world. I started realizing the massive importance of storytelling in creating awareness and eventually change. That’s when I started working in collaboration with a marine conservation NGO based in the Philippines, the Large Marine Vertebrates Research Institute Philippines, working on stories for different awareness campaigns. My drive to inspire and protect the environment, and the people and animals that inhabit it grew even stronger and brought me to collaborate with WWF Australia and Earth Hour Australia as well as several other Australian NGOs.
I use the craft of visual storytelling, in the form of photography and video, to tell meaningful stories, molding each one based on the kind of reach, audience and characters. Telling stories with a purpose, be it for fundraising or raising awareness, is my main focus. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss the development of any story you would like to tell.
I’m proficient in Italian, English and Spanish and feel comfortable traveling and working in remote locations.
