Interview: Photographer Marco Lucato (Italia)
Can you tell us a little about you?
Pleasure I am Marco a 32-year-old boy born in Novi Liguria (AL) on July 30, 1988, I am a photographer specializing in portraits set, fitness and weddings. I have been practicing this work for 3 years now, in which I have tried to evolve my personal style, always introducing some new elements and experimenting with new things.
How and when did you get into photography?
My photographic journey started precisely about 3 years ago, I still remember the first time I held in my hand my first reflex, it was a kind of love at first sight, if so we can understand, from that day I started as a neophyte to shoot relatives and friends, evolving every day my skills, studying tutorials and sharing my passion with more experienced photographers.
What does photography mean to you?
Photography is the art of capturing an instant and making it eternal. I've always thought that a good photo has to convey something to those who view it, and that's where a photographer's skill lies, which is to convey the very reason why that photo was taken.
Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers?
My style is actually constantly evolving, I always try to improve and experiment with new things, while maintaining some key features, namely the fidelity of colors hating the reckless use of modern filters, and the non-vulgarity of the shot, which must enhance a model and not commodify it. I use different post-production techniques that are more or less complex depending on their work needs. at the base of everything, however, must never lack a project to share with the participants of its own realization.
Where do you get inspiration from?
My main inspiration goes towards my mentors who in recent years have followed me and allowed me to improve my shots. Alessandro di Pinto in the first place, jhonny visentin, Andrea Vesko and Alan Montesanto
Do you think in advance what you want in the picture ?
I usually already have in mind the realization of the shot that I have to perform, but in some contexts as in weddings improvisation is fundamental, and a good photographer must know how to adapt.
Studio, on location or both?
Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?
What has been your most memorable session and why?
I remember several, from my first set with Alessandro di Pinto became my master, to my first fitness set with Giulia Costa, and the different sets made with Nikita Pelizon. but if I have to choose a specific one among many, my choice absolutely falls in the set made with Melissa Gallo in the guise of a Pin-Up , she is simply brilliant and the understanding during the set was total. at present it's still the most beautiful set I've made .
Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?
Sony A7riii, 50mm 1.4 sigma art
What is one piece of advice you would like to offer a new photographer looking to start their own business?
