Q: How did you get into photography?

A: I went to photography at the age of 10 years, thanks to astronomy. Although it may seem strange, the picture was the only thing that allowed me to "catch" my greatest passion of those times: the planets and the stars. In fact I did give the telescope to observe what I saw, but it was not enough to me more slowly and so was born in me the desire to photograph them.
Many of my companions thought the football class, but I even then had a clear idea, even at that age I knew what I wanted to be great: I wanted to be a photographer!
For this the age of 19 I left for Belfast, in Northern Ireland, in love with the "lunar" landscapes of Ansel Adams with the desire and intention to take photographs like him.
Let's say that, like all young teenagers, I still had a lot to learn about this and I have so much to thank my Master then Jim Moreland who, with his severity and his great technical knowledge, made me grow up a lot.
I studied then more in those years at Queen's University in Belfast and after several experiences in the field of photography, in 2002 I opened my photo studio in Perugia.

Q: What does it mean to you to be a wedding photographer? And how would you define your style of photography?

A: Being a wedding photographer for me means being able to express my creativity during marriage I feel free to express myself. Only by following their own taste you can find your own style and tastes that make us different from all the others. The bride and groom in fact rely on a photographer who knows how to "interpret" their emotions and has its own recognizable style. I would not know how to define my style of photography, because during the marriage using very large styles to each other, from the preparation of details, to report to close at torque artistic portraits: every moment has his technique, but it's like we photograph them what we distinguished. I chose MagMod to photograph these moments with advanced flash techniques in a jiffy: thanks to the magnetic system of magnets can change the light with many different types of accessories in a simple and practical, re-lights during the day comparable to the exposure room.

Q: How do you use the May Mod products in your services?

A: During my services use the MagMod products to create interesting contrasts of light and color: for example, I like to send the background an off-camera flash with a MadGel blue or orange and illuminate the subject with another flash (always off -double) with MadGrid to concentrate light only on them. This allows me to have two sources of light and different colors in a single photograph. This means that the viewer's eye is directed to look at where I have decided to focus the light. In a marriage if you reinterpret scenes that are created by the flash can be created visually compelling photographs.

the Master of Fine Art: Ansel Easton Adams

(San Francisco, February 20, 1902 - Carmel-by-the-Sea, 22 aprile1984) was an American photographer.

It is known for his black and white landscapes of American national parks, and as the author of numerous books fo

A great photographer is Steve Mc Curry:

Steve McCurry was born on February 24, 1950 in a small suburb of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He attended High School Marple Newtown in Delaware County and then enrolled at Penn State University to study photography and cinema to earn a degree in theater in 1974. He was very interested in photography when he started photographing for the newspaper of Penn State: The Daily Collegian [2]

After working at the Today's Post at King of Prussia for two years, he left for India as a freelance photographer. It was in India that McCurry learned to look and wait for life. "If you can wait," he said, "people forget about your camera and their soul comes out."

His career was launched when, disguised as a traditional dress, he crossed the border between Pakistan and Afghanistan, controlled by rebels just before the Russian invasion. When he came back, he brought with him film rolls sewn between his clothes. Those images, which have been published all over the world, have been among the first to show the conflict to the whole world. His service won the Robert Capa Gold Medal for Best Photographic Reporting from Abroad, a prize awarded to photographers who have distinguished themselves for exceptional courage and for their business.

McCurry then continued to photograph international conflicts, including wars in Iran-Iraq, Beirut, Cambodia, the Philippines, Afghanistan and the Gulf War. McCurry's work has been described in magazines around the world and often contributes to the National Geographic Magazine. McCurry has been a member of the Magnum Photos since 1986.

He is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Magazine Photographer of the Year, awarded by the National Press Photographers' Association. The same year he won the first prize at the World Press Photo Contest for the fourth consecutive year. He also won the Olivier Rebbot Memorial Award twice.

McCurry focuses on the human consequences of war, showing not only what the war is imprinting on the landscape but rather on the human face. He is guided by innate curiosity and sense of wonder around the world and all who live there, and has an extraordinary ability to cross the borders of language and culture to capture stories of human experience. "Most of my photos are rooted in people, and I look for the moment in which the most genuine soul faces, where experience experiences a person's face. I try to convey what can be a person read in A wider context that we could call the human condition.I want to convey the visceral sense of the beauty and wonder I have found in front of me during my travels, when the surprise of being alien blends with the joy of familiarity. "

Steve McCurry is portrayed in a television documentary entitled The Face of the Human Condition (2003) produced by the award-winning French director Denis Delestrac.

It created in 2013 the Pirelli calendar photographing 11 women engaged in the support of Foundations, non-governmental organizations and humanitarian projects.

McCurry proposes a weekend workshop workshop in New York or extended to two weeks in Asia.

The most famous portrait of McCurry, Afghan Girl, was shot in a refugee camp near Peshawar, Pakistan. The picture was named "the most recognized photography" in the history of the National Geographic magazine; His face became famous and is now remembered as "the cover photo of June 1985". The photo has also been widely used on Amnesty International brochures, as well as on posters and calendars.

The identity of the "Afghan Girl" has remained unknown for over 17 years until McCurry and a National Geographic team found the woman, Sharbat Gula, in 2002. When McCurry finally found her, she said, "His skin is marked, now we Are wrinkles, but she is just as amazing as it was many years ago. "[No source]

Great anthological exhibitions have been dedicated to Steve McCurry's works in numerous cities. The author began to exhibit in Switzerland in Lausanne in 2001 with an exhibition by the advertising agency Leo Burnett, together with the historic Italian painter Umberto Pettinicchio [3], Venice [4], Forlì [5], Pordenone [6] , Turin [7], Otranto [8]. In 2017, the city of Brussels devoted a retrospective exhibition with over 200 of its most famous hits from the Afghan period to the present, reproduced in large and exposed in the Palais de la Bourse salon, and various video installations with Interviews he released over the years [9]
