How do you as a photographer make sure that the thing, person or landscape you want to shoot looks the way you want it to?
That’s the challenging part of photography for me, because to make sure the picture come as it was in my mind I prepare any aspect of the shooting in advance (scouting the location a few weeks before with different lighting conditions, studing poses, props, outfits and colours) keeping in mind that every little mistake or forgetfulness become a problem on set that compromise the result.
From your point of view, what makes a good picture?
Light! Light first, and then composition.
Since the photography techniques and equipment change quickly, it is important to stay up-to-date. What do you do to always keep up with the times?
I always keep an eye on other professional photographers getting ideas of new styles and new techniques. I’m always curious to know as far as they can go and how.
Nowadays almost everyone has access to devices with which it is possible to take pictures. What do you think is the difference between a professional photographer and any other hobby photographer?
A professional photographer in my opinion has a different approach into photography compared the hobby photographer, the professional invest more time studying than just taking photo, creating a solid knowledge behind the shot, which could takes months or years before pressing the button of the camera, while an hobby photographer prefer grabbing the camera with an idea going outside to take the shoot hoping the pictures taken is good.
Which one is your favorite lens and why do you prefer it?
Hard to say my favourite lens, because I have a favourite lense for any different condition. I definitely love my 70-200 F/2.8 Sony GM for Action Sports Photography and Portraits and 35mm F/1.4 Sigma art for Weddings and Storytelling.
Who influenced you the most?
Well, this is a good question for me, because I don’t have just one photographer who inspire me but a set of photographers who create an inspirational list in my head where i get a little from everyone. Cristiano Ostinelli e Raph Nogal for Weddings, Constantinos Mouchtaris and Alberto Buzzanca for Glamour, Aaron Brimhall and Sebas Romero for Automotive and bikes, Jasin Boland for Still photography and last but not least Sebastião Salgado and Steve McCurry for documentary and photojournalist whom inspired my photography passion since the beginning.
Is there any other photographer that you considers as a kind of idol?
Peter Lindbergh! He is more than idol, he is “The photographer”.
What, in your opinion, is most important to consider while shooting portrait pictures?
Portrait for me is, getting the exspressiveness that distinguishes each person, added to her/his aspect, facial features and eyes colour. A good portrait can tell you a lot about a person.
Which editing software do you usually use?
I’m felling very comfortable right now with Capture One which is for me really versatile, fast, easy to use and professional. Just in a few cases I may use Lightroom, Capture One and Photoshop together for some specific results.
As how good would you describe your skills in that software?
I would say really good, but probably because is easy to use or because I edited thousands and thousands pictures with it. J
In your free time, what kind of pictures do you like to shoot and which ones do you avoid?
I really love nude art photography and action sports photography and I avoid new born photography and family photos.
