Interview: Photographer Pepe Aldo (Italy)
Can you tell us a little about you?
Pleasure, i am Aldo, a 65 year - old man, born in Montalto Uffugo ( CS ). How and when did you get into photography? In 1980 I left painting to devote myself to the so-called "new art". What does photography mean to you?
Photography for me is a tool to externalize the art that is inside me, to photograph the moment, to take back a mood, to photograph an outfit to make it eternal. Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.
My style is simplicity! I love shooting mainly outdoors and shooting my subjects set in nature and in old buildings such as castles, villas, abandoned artifacts or on the beach. Where do you get inspiration from? I take inspiration from nature and painting. Do you think in advance what you want in the picture?
I think the photo first, as well as the location based on the project I have in mind. Studio, on location or both?
I mainly prefer to shoot outdoors, but when needed also indoors, preferring natural light, and limiting artificial light to a minimum. Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?
I am an advanced amateur photographer. What has been your most memorable session and why?
One of the most beautiful sessions I made was a few years ago, when during the Cosenza Fashion Week, I photographed the creations of Sladana Krstic and Giuseppe Fata, two great artists! Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?
Canon optics. Zoom 24-105 F4L What is one piece of advice you would like to offer a new photographer looking to start their own business?
For a photographer who starts now, I recommend believing in himself. Do not give up at the first difficulties and to experiment and innovate. What do you think of our new magazine?
The magazine is gorgeous! Well done graphically and of excellent quality! Congratulations to those who do!
