Interview: Photographer William Zompì (Italy)

Can you tell us a little about you?

I’m a young photographer from Apulia, in love with my country and interested, since I was a child, to the memories and the stories connected to the photos. When I was 26 I moved in Austria and then in Tuscany and I spent all my free time exploring and taking photos of these wonderful contries. Last year I “discovered” the portraits, a magic mean to tell a story about someone else.

How and when did you get into photography?

Mainly when I was in Austria: it has such beautiful and enchanted landscape, I wanted to bring some of that magic with me!

What does photography mean to you?

It’s a way to express myself…I am not a very “chatty” person, I prefer silence to words. But with the photography it’s different: you can tell a story, an entire world with “just” a picture.

Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.

I always try to create a fashion/romantic mood: my goal is to make pleople dreams about the cities and the places I photograph, to fall in love with the subject of my photos

Where do you get inspiration from?

I usually get inspired when I walk around the city, from the people around me and also from other photographers I follow on Instagram

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

Sometimes, it depends on what I have to do. If it’s a work for a shop or a personal project I always try to find some inspiration and to create my moodboard.

Studio, on location or both?

Mainly on location or around, I love to include corner of the city in my portraits.

Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?

By now I’m a hobbyist, but in future I would like to became a professional photographer.

What has been your most memorable session and why?

The most memorable was a shooting made for a personal project in a kind of private botanical garden: with me I had an incredible team (two models, a stylist and a makeup artist) and to work with them was so inspiring and there was such a great synergy that at the end I created my favourite photos by now!

Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?

Always Nikon, I have a D750 and usually work with a 35mm or a 50mm lens

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

Well, it’s a very hard work and it’s not so easy to be a photographer....I think everyone should find its own mood, character

What do you think of our new magazine?

I think it’s incredible interesting, it’s an amazing way to discover and appreciate people’s work and also a new way for me to get inspired by photographers of other countries….and, of course, it’s a pleasure to be part of it!
