Interview: Photographer Antonio Alesci (Italy)

Can you tell us a little about you?

I am a very normal person, I am 48 years old, I have been shooting for 6 with an interruption of 2 years, due to very serious health problems. I live, near Milan but I was born in Sicily. Until 3 years ago (before the health problems) I was involved in marketing and communication.

How and when did you get into photography? 6 years ago, at the insistence of my ex-wife (the only good thing she ever did). She convinced me to buy a camera because she saw potential in me.

What does photography mean to you?

It is currently therapy (motor and neurological), allowing me to meet beautiful people and especially take beautiful photos, express my soul and capture people's souls.

Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.

I try to capture warm-cold contrasts, from portraits to the nude, always keeping soft, pastel colors.

Where do you get inspiration from? From a look, from a silhouette, from a body, from music, an eye or a movie, from what I see and from empathy with the subject.

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

90% yes, I always prepare a moodboard to serve as a guide and inspiration.

Studio, on location or both?

Anything goes, but I prefer natural light most of the time.

Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?

Currently a hobbyist for the reasons described above.

What has been your most memorable session and why?

All those where empathy with the subject makes me touch the sky... the last one a couple of weeks ago.

Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?

Canon. 85mm.

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

Never mind we are already too many :D

What do you think of our new magazine?

Very nice, I've been following it for many years now and it certainly inspired me 3 years ago to put up my own magazine.
