Interview: Photographer Francesco Coluzzi (Italy)
Can you tell us a little about you?
My name is Francesco, I’m 41 years old. I’m married and i have one daughter. I was born in Rome, but now i live in Bruneck, a little town in North Italy, near Dolomiti Mountains
How and when did you get into photography? I started photographing about 20 years ago a bit for fun but I still didn't have an idea of photography, so I soon gave up. I approached photography again about 10 years ago dedicating myself above all to automotive photography during the GP of the Gt series and the Ferrari Challenge, my great passion. But soon I was kidnapped, studying the great photographers, by portraiture and above all by the genre Glamor, Bouduoir and Nude art because I believe that if well done, these shots are true and proper art forms that enhance the femininity and sensuality of a woman. What does photography mean to you? It is a way to express my creativity and my sensitivity.
Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers. I love women and I like to enhance all their nuances, both physical and character. My photo sets always have a project and I like to choose the right model for each project so that the model can be an actress and interpreter of the photographic project and express herself fully. The project must enhance the characteristics of the model.
Where do you get inspiration from?
From nature, from a painting, from a film, from a song... from everything that arouses an emotion in me.
Do you think in advance what you want in the picture?
Absolutely yes ... it can take months to design a photo shooting.
Studio, on location or both?
The location where to shoot is a consequence of the project.
Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional? I am a hobbyist but it happens to me every now and then to be paid for projects requested by some clients.
What has been your most memorable session and why?
An artistic nude project between woods and waterfalls. It was a project that required 1 year of preparation and study.
Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?
Canon. My favorite lens are 11-16mm f2.8, 50mm f1.8, 24-70mm f2.8 and 70-200mm f2.8
What is one piece of advice you would like to offer a new photographer looking to start their own business?
Studying, experimenting, finding your own style and never giving up.
What do you think of our new magazine? It is a beautiful magazine, with hundreds of great professionals and professionals. Rich in many photogrophies, real works of art and a source of great inspiration and help to try to improve more and more.
