Hi there ! My name is Chiara…
I am your local neighbourhood photographer.
I am a bit of a cosmopolitan – I was born in Venice – Italy.
But I grew up and spent the majority of my life in Bali.
Getting Into Photography
Since my early teens, I often recall having had a camera in my hand. My step-dad really enjoyed photography so there was never a lack of cameras around. My first real passion was photographing my dogs. I recall once I even organised a doggie wedding ceremony where I dressed my dogs up and took photos (no they weren’t small dogs either, it was two German Shepherds) and I am sure one day I will find these films somewhere in the attic of my mum’s house and I will be able to show you the epic-ness that was the start of my photography “debut”.
After gaining my Bachelors’ degree in Journalism, I went on to complete my Masters in Professional Communication, specialising in Photo-media. This was really just a fancy title for photography. I really wanted to travel to conflict prone areas and become a war photojournalist. Instead I went on to having an office job for a few years, before having my daughter.
My Photography Today
Having the perfect muse around and on maternity leave, I realised how much I loved working with natural light. In the start of 2017 I finally took the big leap and started Chiara Luna Photography, and here we are today – having survived early motherhood and a global pandemic, I’ve not looked back since.
My style is relaxed portraiture and lifestyle photography. I find myself often drawn to low light but I would never shy away from a photoshoot in nature or at the beach.
If you love my style, get in touch and let’s chat xx
