MIKE PASARELLA is a Dutch Fashion Photographer, Filmmaker and Art Director with Italian roots. He started as a Casting Director and worked on Dutch and American film productions. During this period he found his passion for telling stories where reality meets fiction.
In his work as a photographer, he tries to find the pure soul of the person and portray it in a raw honest matter. He dares to break boundaries and merge film and photography by experimenting with composition and techniques.
His mission is to move people and contribute to a positive change in the world with both his projects as an independent artist and commissioned work. Mike always brings in his personal style, emotion and artistry in the assignments that both reflect him and the voice of the client.
Together with ADRIANA (a make-up artist and hair stylist), they regularly work as an artistic photography duo and you can find them at the major fashion events.
