Elia Locardi is an internationally recognized professional travel photographer, writer, public speaker and educator who spends his life seeking out and capturing some of the most beautiful and inspirational locations in the world. Recently featured by Professional Photographer Magazine, CNet Australia, and Wacom USA, Elia has cultivated an engaged social media following of nearly 2.5 million people.

Throughout the (highly caffeinated) journey, he teaches the Art of Photography on his website www.BlameTheMonkey.com, shares his images and stories across social media outlets, collaborates with various brands, sponsors, and tourism boards, and leads Photography Tours and Post-processing Workshops worldwide.
