The Photographer


Fernando Faciole is a conservation photographer with dual Brazilian and Italian citizenship, based in São Paulo, Brazil. With a background in biological sciences, Fernando has built his career focusing on wildlife photography. His childhood, spent mostly in a trailer amidst nature, forged a deep connection with animals from an early age.


In 2022, Fernando became the youngest and third Brazilian to join the prestigious International League of Conservation Photographers (iLCP), a group representing the world's foremost conservation photographers. That same year, Fernando also clinched his first major international award, the Panda Awards at the Wildscreen Festival, in the Photo Story category, opening doors with prominent industry editors.


In 2023, Fernando produced a compelling visual story licensed by National Geographic Global, shedding light on flamingo conservation in the Dominican Republic. By March 2024, one of the images from this narrative was chosen for the March edition of the National Geographic print magazine, making Fernando one of the very few Brazilians to achieve this milestone.


Documenting various projects in Brazil, Latin America, and Africa, Fernando has emerged as one of the foremost figures in contemporary wildlife and conservation photography, both in Brazil and globally. Among these projects are those centered around the conservation of flamingos, caimans, anteaters, giant armadillos, agroforestry biodiversity, crabs, and more.


Beyond capturing the essence of wildlife, Fernando aims to transcend traditional wildlife photography by highlighting the human aspect of those dedicated to protecting vulnerable and endangered species. Over the past few years, Fernando has specialized in capturing animals, people, and landscapes, and weaving them together into compelling narratives that drive positive conservation changes.
