Giulio Saggin


I was born in Rome, Italy, in 1968 to Australian parents travelling through Europe doing the ’60s thing. We returned to Australia and Brisbane in 1974.
My childhood and formative years were spent in Brisbane and, after graduating from high school in 1985, I spent the following year working an assortment of part-time jobs. It was during this year I started taking photos and spent 1987-88 studying photography at the Queensland College of Art.
My career began as a cadet photographer on The Canberra Times newspaper in 1989, before moving back to Brisbane and The SUN in 1990.
I began freelancing as a news photographer in 1991 and in 1992 moved to Edinburgh, Scotland, where I worked as a freelance news/tabloid photographer for more than five years. During this time I had work published in every major Scottish and London-based newspaper.
In 1998 I left Scotland and hitchhiked all the way around Australia, photographing everyone who gave me a lift and writing about each hitch ( I did, available through Smashwords - see below).
I live in Brisbane and no longer work in the media. Instead, I work on my own projects, some photographic, some not.
