About me
Nicoló Urbani is a 22 year old Italian photographer with a strong passion for fashion. Graduating soon with a degree in photography from Edinburgh Napier University, and being selected as one of the finalists for the Scottish Portrait Awards In Fine Art 2022 made Nicoló reflect on what achievements he reached as a photographer and how many he will attempt in the future.
