Interview: Photographer Andre Moreau (Italy)
Can you tell us a little about you?
I started shooting at the age of 17 following the footsteps of the masters Mimmo Cattarinich and Sergio Strizzi, immediately loving BW photography by artists such as Herb Ritts, Robert Mappletorphe, Sebastiao Salgado. I mainly deal with glamor, portraiture, nude.
What does photography mean to you?
Passion, expressiveness, imagination, escape, work.
Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.
I love to shoot with natural light, often trying to match the model to architectural geometries or natural landscapes. What interests me most to portray is the femininity that goes beyond beauty and that is innate in some women.
Where do you get inspiration from?
From the places, the lights, the random model attitudes that remain in my mind. Even from the outfit.s
Do you think in advance what you want in the picture?
Yes, but thought and reality are often adjusted in the moment.
Studio, on location or both?
Both. For me location is the best.
Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?
The same thing. But I prefer a nice photo to a paid Photo.
Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?
What is one piece of advice you would like to offer a new photographer looking to start their own business?
Practice. Start as an assistant, and shoot, shoot, and shoot again.
What do you think of our new magazine?
A good initiative.
