Interview: Photographer Carlo Tarchiani (Italy)
Can you tell us a little about you?
Talking about me is not easy, I am very reserved I don't like big stages and a lot of publicity hahahaha. I am a character that I dedicate a lot to photography to the project to the type of model to use in the context that there must be in a photo. I leave nothing to chance.

I don't have so many problems I love life as it comes.
What does photography mean to you?

And my way of expressing myself to say what I sometimes can't with words, is a fantastic world photography is a way of telling what you are doing trying to always do it in the best possible way.
Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.
To describe my style when I photograph a model I try to express the beauty of her, because for me before the model there is the woman / girl first I try to create in each model her charm her beauty and sensuality that there is in them. and above all important thing to bring out the best in them in their looks and poses that remain unique.
Where do you get inspiration from? I take inspiration mainly from Russian photographers but also English and Spanish photographers, I love the Russians for their absolutely fantastic post production, and the British and the Spanish for their soft warm styles as if their photos were paintings.

Certainly the photo and what I want to do with photography I have been programming for weeks from the lautfit from the environment I need with the model, and the careful choice of the model for that type of photo shoot, I leave nothing to chance.
