Interview: Photographer Giovanni Barbera (Italy)

Can you tell us a little about you?

I am a 44-year-old photographer, photography is my favorite hobby, I like traveling and being around people. In life I like to compare myself and discover new things. I consider myself a nice, sociable, and very polite person.


How and when did you get into photography?

I discovered the passion of photographers by chance. One day some photographer friends invited me to spend a photographic evening, for astrophotography shots. All fascinated me but I had never held a reflex in my hand. Later I went other times with friends to keep him company, but in the end I made up my mind! I want to start discovering the world of photography, so I bought a reflex camera, and I let my friends explain a little bit. Gradually my photographic interest has matured and it can be said that I started with nature photography. A year later I decided to attend a master in photography, where I was able to obtain photographic skills. lately I have looked into the photographic portrait that I really like, but I also practice other photographic genres.


What does photography mean to you?

Photography beyond art, for me it is creativity joy, capturing moments of light and moments, photography is a way of telling a certain thing, even a simple gesture, an emotion, and much more.


Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.

My photographic style consists in portraying both emotions through a glance, sensuality, beauty, fashion, woman's intimacy.


Where do you get inspiration from?

I draw inspiration based on the subject I will have to photograph, it depends so much on its expression as well as its charm in general. Usually before photographing a person I prefer to converse with them, to understand their personality, and make a type of photographic shot suited to their style.


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

Yes of course, a good photographer must always have in mind what he wants to achieve in the shot. Sometimes even in practicing reportage during an event, I am an image hunter, you must always be attentive and ready to capture unique moments in a split second .


Studio, on location or both?

Both of them


Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?

I would say both cases, because to be a true professional, first you must have the hobby in your heart, and be able, and then you can be a paid professional, however you are a paid professional.


What has been your most memorable session and why?

My most memorable session I remember was my first reportage wedding photo shoot.


Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?

Canon.


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

My advice is: to practice more and more with photography even if in the first years the photos will not be a success, the more photographers and the more experience you get, but above all, it is always good to attend a serious photography course, from the base to the 'advanced.


What do you think of our new magazine?

Honestly I still know it recently, but I already find it very interesting, certainly a curated magazine to follow.
