Interview: Photographer Massimiliano Marcoccia (Italy)
Can you tell us a little about you?
Hi, I’m Massimiliano and I’m a freelance photographer based in Rome. I shoot portrait but my interest in photography doesn’t have any kind of border.
How and when did you get into photography?
I started when I was young using analog machine without any particular knowledge. After a long pause I have started to shoot again and I have focused my personal research in portrait photograpy.
What does photography mean to you?
The possibility to meet different people and represent my personal vision of them.
Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.
I don’t know if I really have a style but I think that, in this moment, common elements in my pictures are the use of natural light and the focus on the eyes of the subject.
Where do you get inspiration from?
For sure I look a lot at the masters of photography and painting but also at new generation of photographers, that have fresh and interesting ideas. Music, movies and novels also give me inspiration and hints.
Think you in advance what you want in the picture?
I try everytime to fix a mood and a story but when I’m shootind could be that everything thake a diffeent way and I go with the flow.
Studio, on location or both?
In this period I prefer to shoot in location (mainly in nature ) but of course depends what kind of picture I have, or I want, to realize.
Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?
Neither, I use the Sony mirrorless system with primes (50mm the favorite) but my idea is that they are only instruments.
Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?
I consider myself an amateur and this give me the possibily to spend my time in things that can give me satisfaction. Of course my approach is alway professional to guarantee the best results possible to my customers.
What has been your most memorable session and why?
I don’t have an aswers to this question, each session have its own story and importane in my route in the photography.
What is one piece of advice you would like to offer a new photographer looking to start their own business?
I think that everyone must follow its own ideas but alway doing self-criticism.
What do you think of our new magazine?
I like it because you are feauturing a lots of good and interesting photographers and modes
