Elia Locardi

Co-founder, Pro Photographer, Tour Leader

Elia Locardi is an internationally acclaimed professional travel photographer, videographer, Fujifilm Global Ambassador and X-Photographer, writer, public speaker and highly sought after educator who spends his life shooting some of the most beautiful locations in the world. Location independent since March of 2012, he and his wife live a 100% mobile lifestyle, perpetually traveling from country to country, continuously circling the globe. Since he began traveling full-time in 2009, he has visited more than 55 countries, flown over one million miles, and collaborated with major companies, brands, and tourism agencies all over the world. Featured by Professional Photographer Magazine, CNet Australia, Wacom USA, and Fstoppers, Elia has built an engaged following of nearly 3 million people across various social media outlets.

Using a combination of traditional in-camera techniques, targeted times of day, and advanced post-processing methods, Elia has developed a widely recognized and highly unique style of travel photography. With each photograph, his goal is to share his vision so others can see the world as he does, full of color, texture, depth and emotion.

Throughout the journey, he shares the Art of Photography on his popular blog, teaches post-processing workshops worldwide, speaks at major international photography conventions, and is proud to be one of the founders and leaders of Dream Photo Tours.
