Interview: Model Federica Cenci (Italy)
Can you tell us a little about you?
My name is Federica Cenci, I’m 46 years old and I live by the sea near Rome, in Italy.
I’ve been a ballet dancer and a bassist in a rock band. I’m passionate about everything I do and I try to do it better. At the same time I’ve always worked to have my independence and now I’m most passionate about is being a mother.
How did you start modelling?
About a year ago I did my first shooting for fun. The first interminabile lockdown had just ended and I wanted and needed toh ave new artistic experiences so when a photographer contacted me for a shooting I immediately said Yes.
What do you think of the work as a model?
My goalis first of all to learn and become good. I’ve a lot passion but also a long way to go. I like to express my emotions and photography is a great medium. Photography i san intersection between different artistic sensibilities, in this way the magico f stealing an instant from eternity is born. My prerogative is that I take things seriously, especially photography. I’m not satisfied and I chase my dreams by putting my soul into it.
I draw inspiration from the artists I collaborate with, everyone has something to teach me and above all I listen my heart. Generally ther is always a project behind my shooting and I’m very careful in taking care of the cloche and make up, but I confess that some of my best shoots were improvised at the moment.
I leave the post production work to the photographer. I prefer to take photos in Studio because it’s a more intimate situation and you can create a project in a better way.
My favorite genre is portrait photography. I like to tell something about myself through the eyes.
I absolute want a set with a white horse on the beach. I learned that to make progress you always have to want to learn and do everything with enthusiasm.
What are your plans for the future?
In September I’ve a lot of shooting planned both in the Studio and outdoors, especially portraits. I like to collaborate with innovative artists who believe in me
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modelling?
Photography is beauty and poetry, treat it with care!
