about MB Photography


"I have the gift of neither the spoken nor the written word, especially if I have to say something about myself or my work. Whoever wants to know something about me - as an artist, the only notable thing - ought to look carefully at my pictures and try to see in them what I am and what I want to do." from Gustav Klimt

For me Art doesn't exist if one counts the time spending for the creation process. It is not about hours, minutes and seconds.
It is about emotions, in search of the infinite detail and perfection, being spontaneous with mind and heart. Understand and to make only one with the universe. This is called "The Spirit of the Thing".
Marco Benedetti

Marco Benedetti is a Swiss Artist and professional photographer with Italian roots. He works with passion and love for the infinite detail. In the constant seek of creating emotional and beautiful works, storytelling and narrative, trying to be catching "The Moment". The Key of "NOW".

He has been active behind the camera since as early as 1990 aside from his numerous other professions: mechanical engineer, IT engineer, project manager, graduated in visual communication and new media, certified IT security engineer, leading his own IT company and his own professional photo agency and last but not least practising and teaching Japanese Martial Arts (Karate, Kobudo, Iai-Do, Tai-Jitsu).
He studied photography very late in Milan, Italy, where he used to live with his uncle and grandparents. But this was more to confirm theoretically what he already achieved by inspiration and intuition.

Given the luxury to pursue photography as a creative outlet, he used his chance and built a solid and professional manner of working, with the best photo equipment available and yet with an artistic, unrestrained approach.

He loves using available light always when possible, putting more importance to the excellent management of his analogue and digital cameras than to external props and photo retouching. The vision of the final artwork grows in his brain and mind long before the shooting. He also prefers not to shoot if all elements needed on location are not present and reachable. It is also a matter of feeling the right moment, of working with strong emotions and deep narrative intent.

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 emotions, he extended his work to different aspects of people photography, mainly portrait, fashion and artistic nude. Nowadays, he is still working in all these areas in parallel, providing sports images for Swiss photo agencies and actively pursuing his own artistic projects. He also leads national and international photography workshops and masterclasses. Private coaching of photographers is his preferred method to teach to motivated people.

He is an award winning perfectionist, uncompromising on resources to achieve his visions in the highest quality possible. His photos and projects were awarded several times in the International Black and White Spider Awards, The Photography Masters cup, the Trierenberg Supercircuit, Al Thani Award, Artavita Awards, ONWARD Awards, published/awarded by photo magazines, exhibited at the EWZ photo awards hall in Zürich, exhibited in numerous countries like Tokyo or in Barcelona in the Museum of Modern Art MEAM. He is also published in numerous sports and commercial publications as well as editorials, magazines and also in several photography books. He is known as one of the best Swiss Photographers for Emotional Photography.

In the last 10 years he was one of the most nominated Swiss photographers in international contests being awarded more than 100 times with "Outstanding Achievement", "Merit of Excellence" and "Honorable Mention".

Apart from using high end photo technique, Marco Benedetti is currently experimenting with analogue techniques like wet plate (glass) and pin hole camera, painting and collage.
