Professional Photographer – Alberto Cosi
Chiang Mai, Thailand
Alberto Cosi along with his wife and partner Buachan Piyasak created the ‘Italian Connection Partnership’. Alberto Cosi is an experienced professional photographer and Buachan Piyasak was a renowned stylist in Milan before returning to Thailand. Their partnership has therefore resulted in one of the finest professional photography services in Thailand. They specialize in hotel photography, industrial photography and also product photography. They share a passion for fine buildings, automobiles and fashion and are available for real estate, automotive and portrait photography.
Alberto is an Italian born photographer and graphic designer. While working in Milan as a fashion designer’s assistant he met a young Thai woman. She was a junior producer at Vogue magazine. After several visits to Chiang Mai over the past 25 years he decided to settle there permanently.
During his exciting years in Milan he had the opportunity to work alongside leading photographers including Arthur Elgort, Paolo Roversi, Maria Vittoria Backhaus and Torkil Gudnason.
He consequently decided to become a professional photographer and attended several workshops at Sinar and Broncolor in Switzerland.
Alberto has a passion for automobiles and fine objets.
San, to her friends, had an exciting life at the top of her profession living in Milan for almost 25 years.
She experienced the thrill of working with Carla Sozzani at Conde Nast dealing with top-class models, photographers and fashion designers. During that time her styling skills made her well known and widely appreciated in the fashion scene.
Now back in her home town of Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand she gives her full support to Alberto’s photography adding her valuable experience to his work helping with styling and editing. These skills are particularly evident in their hotel photography. Her eye for detail dressing a room for shooting is just one of the reasons why they stand out from the crowd.
Having a native Thai speaker on the team is also a huge advantage on the many commissions undertaken throughout Thailand.
Details make all the difference, and we keep it in mind all the time either when setting up lights, styling or post-processing.
