Studio Pasarella is a photography and film production company by Mike Pasarella. He is a Dutch Fashion Photographer, Filmmaker and Director with Italian roots. He started as a Casting Director and worked on Dutch and American film production. 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. Together with ADRIANA (a make-up artist and hair stylist), they work as an artistic photography duo. They found their love in fashion and portraiture and have never stopped expending their horizon. Mike and Adriana always bring their personal style, emotion and artistry in the assignments that both reflect them and the voice of the clients they work for.
