FEATURED PHOTOGRAPHER INTERVIEW
1. How does this collection speak to you? How did it come about? What did you want this to say to your
The story is about a young girl who has an "Alice in wonderland" spirit. She felt down to a complete different
world. The beauty side of Almodovar's movies was what attracted us for the collection and we chose to illustrate it by putting it into a complete opposite decor. However, this incoherence vibe is far from being as dramatic as Almodovar's movies. It is more a poetic search.
2. What do you find to be the most difficult when bringing a team of artists together to create a cohesive
look? How do you pick the right team?
The most difficult is to find the right people to get the perfect team. You want team members who are as excited as you about the project. It is amazing when stylist, hairstylist, make up artist are in cohesion and agree with the style and ambience of the shoot. Mainly, the projects will happen when a team comes together. For instance, this editorial was directed by the stylist and myself. I like common project a lot because you can always learn working as a team.
3. As an editorial artist, what do you feel is one of the biggest mistakes beginners tend to make?
When you start, you tend not to have the right team with you. The risk is that the result and the pictures will not look as you have had expected. Create a universe for a photo-shoot requires making choices, define a lexical scope. You do have to go threw different shoots to experiment and get the best team after different experiences. It is important that within the team, everybody builds the shoot. Also, it is good to keep in mind the
way that you want the photos to look. It is like advices, take it, listen to it, don't always apply it.
4. How would you describe your artistic style?
I am mostly inspired by simple, pure, graphic and strong pictures.
When I shoot, I like to enhance the femininity and the beauty of each model I work with.
5. Do you prefer to be behind the camera or in front of it?
I prefer to be behind the camera. I love creating stories, or just to take some key moments that I want to
6. What is your greatest weakness; your greatest strength?
Tricky question, I guess they change overtime when you grow up but I'm always trying to work on my weaknesses to make them strengths.
7. What misconceptions do you think outsiders have about fashion and beauty editorials?
Maybe that fashion is superficial. From my point of view, fashion is beauty, art, colour, sculpture, creation, material, concept and most of it all, an excuse for creating stories, sets and editorials.
8. What is your secret to keeping a happy balanced life while following your passion?
To stay positive, believe in myself, work hard, and be surrounded by the best team and people I have ever met. Try everything without forgetting its ethics. My job is not easy every day, but I am really happy about what I
do, and I feel very lucky about it.
9. Music feeds the soul and often motivates. What music are you playing while you are shooting?
Chicago, Sufjan Stevens
10. Words to live by?
Be careful what you wish for, it just might come true.
