Eddy Ballardi Photographer

FASHION / CORPORATE / EVENTS / VIDEOS / FILMS

Eddy Ballardi is a director/DOP and photographer based in Madrid, Spain.
After studying and working as a cinematographer and photographer in Dublin (Ireland) and Berlin (Germany), he moved to Madrid which he now uses as a base to engage in local, national and international projects, with specializations in fashion (backstage and catwalk) and promotional videos.
As both a director and DOP Eddy has shot short films, trailers, promos, and both fashion and music videos. His passion for communicating ideas and moments through the mediums of film and photography has led him to work with a wide range of exceptionally talented and inspirational clients across the film, fashion, music, theatre and corporate industries.
The last couple of years has seen him working in places as far apart as Madrid, Amsterdam, L.A. and Namibia. Location is never an issue; feeling a connection to the work and project team is what matters most.
