My name is Simone, I’m a young Italian photographer. I’m studying graphic design and art direction at the Academy of Fine Arts of Milan. I choose this university course thanks to my passion for cinema, which introduced me to the world of graphic and web design. My aim is to work in the field of advertising and communication. Currently, I work as an assistant with various professional photographers and graphic designers and I follow workshops focused to continually update my skills in this area. The passion for photography was born as opposition to drawing and illustrations, maybe for the ability to see a good part of your project from the first shot, or maybe because I love to accomplish what I have always loved in the cinema world. The photograph has a very vast sector.
I work in portrait and beauty. What’s the difference? Beauty photography brings out the beauty of the subject, the portrait tells the story of it. I often speak with the model and the makeup artist about the service that they would like to do after we decide a location and we go shooting! Sometimes it happens that we do not like a photograph because you want that the model has a better face or because you realize too late that behind the subject there is something that is disturbing. The problems may be many, but also the solutions. For this reason thanks to my university course I can do the post-production, so I not only realized the shots but I take care of the whole project.
I recently had the opportunity to work with Beatrice, a young model of 19 years, but with so much talent, she was able to pose in an expressive manner and we realized what we wanted to communicate with our project. She felt immediately at ease in front of the camera and the pictures were really formidable, thanks also to Michela, the make-up artist, that did the makeup of Beatrice. The makeup has been created without any real basic idea, Michela was inspired by the face and by the gaze of Beatrice and she makes the best with a make-up that was right with the face and that puts focus on Beatrice’s eyes. Smokey eyes highlighted the eyes of Beatrice and lipstick with metallic effect immediately created an interesting play of light that characterized the face of the model. The blacks hair, wavy and voluminous have created some really interesting contrasts with the light skin and gave a strong character to the face.
The outfit chosen is a total black outfit that makes the photos very elegant and interesting thanks to the contrast with the red background that wants to convey a theatrical touch recalling the red curtain. Few accessories, but well-thought. The watch creates a point of interest in the image and follows the vintage style present all over the portrait. The photos are designed to create games of light and shadow, leaving the shape of the model in an air of mystery. I found in these girls two very good coworkers and together we have created a truly functional team, even if we are all young the final result was surprising. The shots are upscale and everything has been well thought out and created. Nothing was left to chance. It is nice to find people like me who want to work to create a high-quality content to add to their portfolio, either as a finished work, but also as an experience. It is hard to believe that three strangers in a short time succeeded in creating such a good work. I hope to find more people to work like that, I want to improve as a photographer and to discover new things and new styles.
