What is it about photography that made you decide you’d like to do it as a business?
I was given a camera for my 10th birthday and from that moment on I was hooked and I carried that camera with me everywhere and was forever pestering everyone and anyone to let me photograph them.
Over the years as my photography developed I found that I was being asked to photograph friends and family events and then my first wedding and it got to the point that I thought perhaps we can make a living out of this and Mezzino Photography was born.
What’s the best part of capturing a special event?
The best part of capturing a special event is the fact that I am creating wonderful memories for people and recording moments in time that will never happen again, our clients will be able to look back over the years and remember that particular day with great fondness and those memories will come flooding back all over again.
What do you look forward to most when working with your clients?
We get to meet so many people from all different walks of life and it is always fun to get to know a little about our clients, everybody has different ideas about how they would like us to photograph their event and we are always learning something that perhaps we can incorporate into our next shoot.
Your wife Gina helps you out at times, some people say working with your partner is challenging, would you agree or has it bought you closer together?
We work together well on a shoot, it is always good to get a different perspective to what I am seeing and Gina brings ideas from a female point of view that I may not see.
Of course there are always challenges but overall it has bought us closer together.
What do you look forward to most as you grow this business?
I am always looking to improve how the business runs and to improve my skills as a photographer so I look forward to seeing how both of those aspects are going to change over the years.

Tell us about this charity?
This charity is about raising funds for people suffering from EB, Epidermolysis Bullosa is a rare disease whereby the skin blisters and peels at the slightest touch. Living with EB has been likened to living with third degree burns. It is very painful, and sufferers must be bandaged every day with dressings to protect and medicate their wounds.
Why is it important to you?
Back in 2016 I saw a notification about The Cotton Ball that was to be held later in the year, at the Adelaide Convention Centre. I didn’t know anything about EB and did a little research and soon realised what a horrible disease it is and just wanted to get involved and help out if I could so I contacted the organisers and offered our services and they accepted, they are holding another ball this year at The Convention Centre and we were very happy to be asked again to help out and immediately said yes.
Photos of the 2016 Cotton Ball can been seen here ;)
Tell us about their ball and the vibe on the night?
The Ball is a real buzz to be involved in, it is a fun night of eating and drinking with special guests and lots of entertainment and money raising but the real meaning of the night is not lost on the hundreds of guests and that is to raise money to support sufferers of this debilitating disease.
Why do you love being involved?
I love being involved because it gives me a feeling of helping and supporting those less fortunate that myself, albeit in a small way.
Thailand ~ What a wonderful place to visit.... friendly people, fabulous food, plenty to see and lots of sun....shorts and t-shirt weather for two weeks in the middle of our winter; was just the tonic we needed to get us through.
If you haven`t been to Thailand before and you have the opportunity to go I would say do it and it would be a great honeymoon location. We stayed at the Sheraton Resort in Hua Hin and I cannot say enough good things about the people, the food, the culture and the warm weather.
I hope you enjoy these photos and be sure to visit us on Instagram @mezzino_photography to see many more :)
The Grand Palace was built in 1782 and for 150 years was the home of the Thai King, it`s fabulous architecture and the attention to detail has to be seen to be believed.
Damnoen Saduak`s floating market.....talk about organised chaos :)
People and boats everywhere and everything from spices to wooden frogs for sale, lots of fun to be had haggling with the locals.
The Khao Luang underground cave, a magical place of worship and a welcome relief from the extreme heat and humidity.
Khao Wang, locally known as the Palace on the hill, a Royal residence built over 160 years ago, unfortunately we were not allowed to photograph it inside but there were plenty of photo opportunities on the outside.
Here at Mezzino Photography we adore being asked to capture beautiful christenings in Adelaide.
The families love to celebrate the occasion in their homes surrounded by family and friends all dressed up ready for the church service. The Adelaide Churches never disappoint, there is definitely a reason why we are known as a city of churches!
The children are dressed in their most special clothes, bubbling smiles as they are passed from family to friends for kisses and cuddles.
Then off to the church to capture the ceremony.
We hope you enjoy a selection of our Christening Photography, and don't forget you can see more here.
