Interview: Photographer Flavio Zamberlan (Italy)

Can you tell us a little about you?

My name is Flavio Zamberlan, I’m an Italian photographer living in Rome, Italy.

I’ve been working on my photography for many years and I have experience in most of its practical applications.

How and when did you get into photography?

I remember having always had an interest in photography. As a child I was fascinated by image and had an intuitive sense of its power, then the long hours spent in front of the lens confirmed this vocation and thought me the ability of photography to capture, in an instant, the truth of the incessant flow of life. I have been studying photography and the power of images for over ten years.

I feel however that in the last two years, I have found my true path: street photography and portraits photography. In other word in my photographs the interest in the human figure is predominant.

What does photography mean to you?

Photography has become a life partner for me over time. Even when I'm not shooting, I every day dedicate time to photography, looking at the works of other well-known and lesser-known photographers. This is because I believe you can learn something from everyone and it is also a way to stimulate your creativity.

Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers

As I said, the photographic genres that I find most stimulating are portraits and street photography.

This is because I am very intrigued by the human figure and I see photography as the medium that helps me to grasp its essence. My goal is to represent people without the masks that social conventions force us to wear.

Where do you get inspiration from?

I really love looking at the work of other photographers, portraitists, fashion photographers and street photographers but many visions are extrapolated from the world of cinema, comics and illustrations.

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

Let's say that I come to the shooting with a basic idea but I also let myself be carried away by the mood of the day and the of the person I have to portray

Studio, on location or both?

Mostly at the studio, I love the intimacy and the connection that you can create with your subject inside an enclosed space.

Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?

More than a hobbyist I think I'm a lover of photography. I don't like commodifying it and I only shoot what arouses my curiosity.

What has been your most memorable session and why?

I feel like saying each. Each shooting and each person you portray is a unique and unforgettable experience.

Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?

I solved this dilemma, I bought Leica. I love the rendering of the Leica lenses.

The focal lenght I use most are the 28mm for street photography and reportage and the 90mm for portraits.

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

Surely I would tell him to always be curious and also a little dissatisfied with his works because only in this way you keep alive the desire to always improve.

Whatdo you think of our new magazine?

I consider it a very beautiful publication, young, sparkling but interesting at the same time.

I also find this initiative to give visibility to young photographers wonderful.

Thank you.
