Recently did an interview for a magazine called B-Authentique which can be viewed by clicking here. I have included the interview below for those that don't care to see the editorial that accompanied it. Definitely cool to have given an interview from the photography side of things. Hope you enjoy!
In a few words, tell us a little bit about yourself?
I am a hairdresser turned fashion photographer. I only shoot women right now because that is where I see the most beauty.
How long have you been a photographer?
How did you discover photography?
When I was 8 or 9 years old my father bought a Minolta Maxxum Af 7000. The first autofocus camera, I thought it was (and still do) a piece of art.
How was your first shooting? What did you shoot?
I shot a model, indoors and my lighting was HORRIBLE… Could barely look at the pictures. Thank God I didn’t give up.
How would you describe your style?
My style is simple. Because of my hairdressing background and my personality, women feel incredibly comfortable around me. This enables me to capture a “snapshot” of a particular moment. It could be candid, it could be fun, but it is almost always up close and personal. The photograph is almost an afterthought, it is more about the moment.
What does photography mean to you?
It has become the ultimate form of expression for me. I am able to translate what I think is beautiful or cool or quirky into a photo which will live forever.
What inspires you?
Other artists inspire me, life inspires me, sometimes nostalgia inspires me. I might have a memory of an instance or something I have seen (I have a photographic memory) and I may incorporate that into a photo.
What would you like to photograph?
I already photograph what I want to, which is women. If I could choose one in particular it would be Amanda Seyfried… Her eyes!!
A photographer you particularly admire?
What is happiness?
Doing what you love, surrounding yourself with people that you love, and realizing that happiness comes from within.
If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
Sicily, San Vito Lo Capo.
What’s your next goal?
To photograph Amanda Seyfried.
