Sol Basconcillo was born in Naples, Italy, and grew up in the beautiful coastal city of Charleston, SC, where he currently resides. He was often behind the camera at family gatherings, and eventually studied media arts in college. After graduation, he began working as a product photographer, cataloging antiques and historical pieces. He also had the honor of documenting thousands of our military service members and their families in South Carolina, Georgia, and Kentucky.  These days, Sol enjoys taking pictures at weddings, with families, and of travel adventures. 

During his downtime, Sol can be found at home or around town with his wife, Josephine, and their children.


The Approach

Sol finds a great sense of purpose in helping families tell their stories. His goal is to document memories in a simple and truthful way.  He believes in a flexible approach- capturing authenticity and candor, while directing when necessary.

A self proclaimed camera geek, Sol shoots with both film and digital formats.
