Lucrezia is an elegant, creative and positive person tha loves fashion and modelling. She is an italian playmate and she likes to work hard, to be consistent and try for the best.
Can you tell me a little about you?
I’m Lucrezia, an Italian freelance photomodel based near Venice. I’m 23. I usually work for artistic photoshooting, workshop and photographic event.
How and when did you get into your profession?
I started modeling about 3 years ago, for fun with some friends. From that moment I realized that I wanted to deepen my ability to pose, so I did a lot of apprenticeship to reach a good level.
What does modeling mean to you?
For me, modeling means being able to express myself in the best possible way, being able to express my emotions, interpret abstract figures and create something aesthetically beautiful that will remain immortal over time.
Could you describe your style in three words?
Elegant, sophisticated, delicate.
Where do you get inspiration from?
I have studied a lot from models and photographers who have more experience than me to understand how to move in the best way possible. But I let myself be carried away a lot by my emotions and feelings that I feel at the moment and I let myself be pervaded by my creativity.
What was the most uncomfortable situation you encountered during a session ?
A photographer who initially seemed serious and professional, at one point during the shooting asked me to “push myself further” and offer to him sexual services (even fetishist). Obviously I didn’t accept and we stopped the shooting.
What a model should be careful for ?
Models must be careful of the people who contact them to shoot. You must always inquire about the person with whom you are going to work and in any case, even during the shooting, you must remain in your roles (model – photographer). If you don’t want to do a certain thing, we can refuse and we don’t have to feel forced or (even worse) blackmailed.
What has been your most memorable session and why?
There are many sessions that I remember with great pleasure. But I think that the one that gave me the most satisfaction was the photo session with Gianluca Moretto, as one of the photos was exhibited at an international photography exhibition.
Can you name four of your favorite photographers you worked with?
Nico Ruffato, Davide (dg_portrait_photographer), Gianluca Moretto, Roberto Demaria (but there are a lot of other good name to mention).
What is one piece of advice you would like to offer a new model looking to start their own career?
I would tell her to use her head, not to do rash things that she would later regret, to work hard, to be consistent, build a good foundation and work with good photographers. But above all not to be ashamed and not to listen to people talking behind their backs.
BONUS QUESTION: Redflag the “strange” photographer’s behavior.
In my opinion photographers should never touch the model without asking permission, they should not fill her with heavy and continuous compliments. They shouldn’t have “weird” attitudes during the set. They should accept the fees without playing to the downside and, if it’s a TF shooting, deliver the photos!
