What do you photograph?
Stories. Dreams. I don’t really care for documenting “reality”. I tend to go for a more fantasy-like twist in my images to catch those fleeting glimpses of magic that hide in the layers between light and shadow, reflection and the reflected, illusion and reality. My photographs are like dark chocolate – rich, with a hint of melancholy and a drop of sweetness. Enjoy them slowly.
Do you mostly shoot during the dark hours of the day?
I like darker kind of aesthetic, however, no, I don’t go shooting only when its dark outside.
What’s in your bag?
Fujifilm X-T1 with the 18-135mm Fujinon lens.
Jay Maisel, Gianni Berengo Gardin, Rankin and many hyper talented photographers that are perhaps lesser known, however, their work takes my breath away.
How much post-processing do you do?
Since I converted to Fujifilm cameras – very little. I live by the mantra “do in-camera everything you possibly can” and Fuji is perfect for this because I love the colors it gives me and the chiaroscuro effect I can get out of it, so I shoot only in JPEG because the quality of the images is amazing and because I don’t want to waste my time doing editing.
Natural or studio light?
Natural all the way. I have no patience for studio lighting.
Is there bad light?
Light is always light. Its our attitude towards it that’s bad sometimes. Light can be challenging, but its never bad.
DSLR or mirrorless?
I dont discriminate, but prefer mirrorless.
A dark fantasy love story in Venezia in winter during caigo with a touch of acqua alta thrown in for good measure. It would be either an extremely elaborate affair or an incredibly simple setup, but it would be so much fun…
