About Roberto Bigano Photographer
My headquarter is in Verona, Italy, with branches in Naples and Mountain View, California.
Mostly I work in Europe and the United States with a diverse client base that requires wide-ranging commercial art and fine-art photography. I have some 35 books to my credit.
In the last few years, I focused on art repro. Relevant was the high-resolution reproduction of Leonardo Da Vinci’s Last Supper and the masterpieces of Giotto in Florence including the two Crucifixes.
I also recently shot the integral work of the Georgian national painter, Niko Pirosmani.
Consulting and Know-How Transfer
I developed special skills on digital and high resolution photography and I teach digital photography at international workshops and conferences.
Then I created “Know-How Transfer, The Photography Knowledge Hub” gathering a team of talented professionals with the aim of developing software, tutorials and support, in the field of Photography and Digital Imaging.
Know-How Transfer specialized in developing Photoshop Professional Plugins built to make your work easier and more qualitative. All our software is the result of joint work between developers and photographers.
Anna Longo about 7816, my latest exhibition
This work on the a priori condition of photography makes Bigano an engineer involved with developing the technique for constructing images, but it also makes him a visionary able to model reality in order to give it a form as close as possible to the ideal one: a Bugatti car is transfigured into a sinuous line of light, a mannequin into a woman vibrating with feeling, armour into a mythical hero, and a plaster cast gallery into a single sensual sculpture. The power of transfiguration, the power of construction, the power of creativity united to technique but in the service of the ideal.
Anna Longo is Professor of Philosophy Aesthetics at Université Paris 1 – Panthéon Sorbonne, and is specialized on speculative philosophy. She wrote several books, including: “Breaking the spell: speculative realism under discussion”, “Time without becoming”, “il divenire della conoscenza”.
Roberto Bigano According to Hasselblad.
Roberto is a longstanding master of multi-shot technology and is frequently summoned when pinnacle image quality is of the essence.
According to Manfrotto.
Roberto is “a unique photographer. First and foremost he seems to escape any attempt to pigeonhole his style or specializations. Then there’s the fact that he doesn’t hesitate to swim against the current of many of his professional colleagues… he takes the type of photo that so many of his contemporaries shy away from, using and pushing the limits of the best technological resources available today.”
Not your standard photographer, but a photographer who sets the standard. Roberto invented this standard when he first started shooting for Manfrotto, back in the days before digital. That way of making our heads, tripods and special products look that little bit more dynamic, more appealing, is all his.
According to PC Photo Magazine.
To shoot a Fresco hidden by a wall? Or Cars on location in a Museum with a mobile set? Or the details of a Mosaic on the top of the Cathedral of Orvieto, 100 feet high? For these and many other challenges Roberto Bigano is able to find the right solutions.

Currently on a five-city tour of India, Bigano is addressing students and photographers on the art of photography. His adroit shooting of assignment related masterpieces in medieval and renaissance churches positioned him as lensman extraordinaire. For path breaking techniques in photography and exceptional volume of work Bigano has been duly recognised.
