My name is Paola Brigneti. I am the fine art photographer behind World Photos by Paola. I have always been passionate about the arts. Growing up in Peru, I have always been involved in some kind of artistic project like drawing, pastel painting, and mosaicking. My apartment is full of my artwork.

Currently based in San Francisco, I enjoy photographing the city’s everyday moments and try to step out of the traditional landmarks of the city by paying attention to what happens around me, in my neighborhood, in the hidden alleys and stairways all around and up and down San Francisco. The city is full of charming little corners everywhere, you just have to take a second to take it all in.

Combining my love of travel with my love of photography, I have captured images of nature, food, people, and every day life in countries around the world.  When not traveling internationally, I love discovering gorgeously diverse California. I especially enjoy photographing the coast, beaches and surrounding mountains during weekend day trips. California has made my love of nature grow deeper every single day since I moved to the Golden State in 2010.
