Interview: Photographer Cristian Sartori (Italy)

8 May 2020

Can you tell us a little about you?

Hi everyone, I'm Cristian Sartori, I'm 27 years old and I live in Piacenza, a small town not too far from Milan (Italy). I am a portrait photographer and I have been doing this type of photography for 4 years.

 

How and when did you get into photography?
I started to love photography in 2010 when I was still in school, taking pictures with a smartphone. The following year, I bought a compact camera because I wanted to increase the quality of my photos. I mainly shot landscapes as here in Val Trebbia there are beautiful places to photograph. Since 2015, however, I realized that this was not the right way for me, in fact I became passionate about portrait photography and started studying as a self-taught. In 2016 I bought my first reflex, a nikon D90 and started to put my studies into practice.

 

What does photography mean to you?

For me, photography is being able to give a message or express an emotion.

 

Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.

For my style of photography I always look for a perfect light and try to combine the style of the classic portrait with a more modern and colorful one.

 

Where do you get inspiration from?
I take inspiration from art, painting and my favorite photographers, Steve McCurry and Peter Lindberg.

 

Do you think in advance what you want in the picture ?

Usually yes, then I also like to improvise based on the light at the location where I am.

 

Studio, on location or both?

I only shoot with natural light or ambient light so I never shoot in studio.

 

Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?

Nikon, my favorite lens and the one I use most is the 85mm.

 

What is one piece of advice you would like to offer a new photographer looking to start their own business?

 

What do you think of our new magazine?

I think it's a nice opportunity to introduce emerging artists, there should be more magazines like yours out there!
