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 tabbed as the family photographer and videographer during gatherings and events. His interests continued through college, where he learned and practiced film shooting and darkroom processing. After earning a bachelors degree in Media Arts, he began his career in 2005 as a product photographer, cataloging antiques and historical pieces. Soon after, he worked as a contractor, documenting thousands of our military service members and their families in South Carolina, Georgia, and Kentucky. These days, you can find Sol taking pictures of weddings, families, and travel adventures.
During his downtime, Sol can be found at home or around town with his wife, Josephine, and their children.
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.
