Helena Palazzi [ Contributor - Fashion Photography ]

Helena Palazzi is a freelance commercial and editorial photographer with roots in Sweden and Italy. She was born and raised in Sweden but spent many summers in Italy- her father's native country- and eventually moved there to study at the Academy of Fine Arts. As a new graduate, she landed in NYC in 2000.

Helena was immediately drawn to the editorial and advertising world. Her desire for telling a "story" combined with her unique sense of imagery enabled her to pursue her photographic journey and successfully collaborate with world-renowned clients and creatives.

The mixture of her Scandinavian and Southern European roots are evident in her work: Sometimes amplified and dramatic and other times quiet and humble but always in search of beauty and uniqueness; even in the smallest details. Her style is timeless and elegant with a pinch of whimsical.

When Helena is not traveling she is dividing her time between Hudson Valley and NYC; invariably and passionately working alongside clients and shooting for personal projects and telling stories.
