About Photo World Art

Is a collaborative effort between two photographers who first met years ago as students at Brooks Institute of Photography.  While Marco has traveled the world to produce most the images on the site, Clay has stayed close to his California studio producing images for commercial clients.  Both share a love of the outdoors and the beauty of the natural world.  This website is devoted to those who share that love and who want the only the finest in reproductive art.



Marco Simoni is a native of Genoa Italy. Studying photography at the Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara (California), Marco specialized in travel picture stories, nature and stock photography. Currently based in Genoa, working as a freelance and stock photographer Marco travels widely including Greece, Nepal, Thailand, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Costa Rica, and The Falkland Islands. His passion for photography and keen artistic sense allow him to capture the wonders of nature, the grace of architecture, and the character and beauty of people.
