Elia Locardi is an internationally acclaimed professional travel photographer, writer, experienced public speaker and highly skilled educator who spends his life shooting some of the most beautiful locations in the world. Featured by Professional Photographer Magazine, CNet, Wacom, SmugMug Films, Adobe, Fujifilm and Fstoppers, Elia began working full-time in the photography industry in 2009, and since then he has visited more than 65 countries, flown nearly 2 million miles, and collaborated with major companies, brands, countries, NGOs, and tourism agencies on nearly every continent. Due to the years of dedication and genuine openness with his colleagues and audience, he has become one of the most followed photographers in the industry, while building and maintaining a highly engaged social media following across all major networks.


Using a combination of traditional in-camera techniques, targeted times of day, and advanced post-processing and time blending methods, Elia has developed a widely recognized and highly unique style of photography that has become well known around the world. With each photograph, his goal is to share his vision so others can see the world as he does, full of color, texture, beauty, depth and emotion. As a result, many of his photos have been used in some of the most widely circulated publications including National Geographic and displayed in fine art galleries, expositions, and photography events worldwide.


With extensive on-camera, public speaking, and teaching experience, Elia has established himself as one of the most respected and articulate photography educators and speakers in the industry. He has a unique ability to simplify even the most complex topics while communicating in a clear, friendly, and highly engaging way. He has been invited to speak at some of the largest photography events and stages in the world including, Photokina, Gulf Photo Plus, Photo Plus Expo, Inter BEE, National Geographic Aveiro Festival, and Instagram Illuminate.

In collaboration with Fstoppers, Elia has become well known for developing the most in depth and complete Landscape Photography and Post-processing tutorials available. With dozens of lessons that span over 50 hours of educational content, the Photographing The World series has grown to include 4 complete seasons and has been filmed in North and South America, Italy, Iceland, Hong Kong, Singapore, Cambodia, New Zealand, and Dubai. Specializing in Landscape, Cityscape, and Astrophotography, in this incredibly immersive series of lessons, Elia teaches his entire photography and post-processing workflow from start to finish, both on location in-the-field and in post-processing.
