The act of photographing is my meditation tool, my never-ending experience of discovery, and my philosophy of life. It is the way I have to enter into a deeper empathy with a reality that needs to be understood beyond its physical appearance, going beyond its first visible layer.

Giulio D'Ercole


My name is Giulio D’Ercole, and I have been a professional Photographer for the last twenty years, since UNICEF Kenya, bought some of my photos for their publications.

I currently teach photography at Istituto Pantheon of Technology and Design, a private University in Rome, my hometown. Since 2016, I have been conducting photography workshops and photographic tours in Rome and Latium, Tuscany, Umbria and Apulia with my two companies: Rome Photo Fun Tours and Italy Photo Fun Tours.

I have a University degree in Literature, obtained in 1986 at the University La Sapienza, in Rome. Since then, I have always worked in visual communication, working first in Theatre, then in Television, and finally as Documentary film maker.

My career in TV started in Italy in 1988, then in 1997 I moved to NY, where I was hired as Senior Producer by Rai Corporation, and in 2003, I moved to Kenya, where I worked as Communication and Media expert for UNESCO and ILO.

In the mean time, I founded Canvas Africa Productions, a media company focusing on social and humanitarian issues. With Canvas,I produced dozens of documentaries for major UN Agencies and NGOs, in fourteen Sub-Saharan countries. As I was shooting these documentaries, I focused more and more into photography. My work was then published in several magazines and reports, but most importantly, it was exhibited at the Italian and at the French Institutes of Culture, at the American Embassy, and at the National Museum in Nairobi, at Lagos Photo Festival, and finally, also at the “Biennale di Venezia” in 2011.

In 2013, for the World Refugee Day, I fully conceived and implemented a multimedia installation in Rome, sponsored by UNHCR, focusing on migration.


In 2015 I returned permanently to Rome, and in 2016 I started running photo walks in the Eternal City. In 2018, I founded Rome Photo Fun Tours, and since then, I have been running hundreds of photo walks, teaching architecture, nature, portrait, cityscape, and street photography providing technical and hands-on workshops. Still, on the commercial side, I also shoot interiors and Food Photography for private and international companies.


My most ambitious present project is “Our Home - A Shared New World”, a groundbreaking, innovative multimedia installation and collective exhibition on Life at the time of Corona Virus. This project is now in its fundraising phase, in cooperation with two other international photography communities: Frames Magazine and EXCIO.
