Milan-based photographer Settimio Benedusi is a self-professed "beauty hunter." That's precisely why Sports Illustrated magazine hired him to take these stunning shots of their gorgeous models.
Ever since Benedusi got his first camera at the age of 12, he's been fixated on taking the perfect picture. He seeks to capture raw beauty and emotion in every shot. "I look at the subject and shoot – that’s the only way for capturing moments that otherwise would be gone like tears in the rain," he says.
