Simone Bramante is a Bologna, Italy-based creative who helps companies come up with everything from their corporate identity to their social media strategy. He’s also a jack-of-all-trades, working as a commercial photographer, illustrator, and graphic designer. In his spare time, he puts down his hefty photography gear, his Canon 6D and L-series lenses, and he picks up his iPhone. Under the Instagram handle brahmino, he captures himself as well as others with their feet off the ground, or gracefully floating in mid-air.
Above all else, Bramante is a storyteller. Nowhere is that storytelling ability more alive than in his Instagram feed. Brahmino admits to using photo editing apps to help him create these magical illusions, citing Snapseed, Photoshop, FIlterstorm, VSCO and Afterlight, as some of his favorites. He started posting his photos on Instagram about three years ago and now over 436,000 people follow him to see just what he’ll come up with next. Late last year, Forbes spotted his talent, listing him as one of 10 Instagram photographers we should all follow.
