Interview: Photographer Daniele Rebecchi (Italy)

Tell us something about yourself

My name is Daniele Rebecchi, I am a non professional photographer from Mantua (Italy). My passion for photography began almost by chance, next to the one I have for music and painting.


How and when did you get into photography?

I approached to photography 12 years ago with a compact digital camera. Given that music has always been my greatest  passion, I started catching memories during my favourite concerts. Since then, I understood that photography would have become a deep and fundamental passion.


What does photography mean to you?

I would summarize my answer with the following sentence: “Photography is a research of yourself in the others and a research of the others in yourself”.

 

Where do you get inspiration from?

My inspiration gets on the spot. Photographically, I am an instinctive. Of course, the greatest masters of the past have somehow influenced my view but I have always looked for my own identity.

 

Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.

I have always been particularly interested in the study of natural light, understood as the light at the moment of the shooting (both solar and artificial). My style, in case I have one, is the continuous research of the right mood, the right feeling, as an authentic (and not unnatural) evidence of that moment. I would say that my approach is a sort of reportage, regardless of who or what is in front of me.

 

Think you in advance what you want in the picture?

Absolutely not. I look for the unicity, the spontaneity of a moment. For this reason,  depending on the model and the kind of feeling established, my works might result very different from each other. Actually, the unexpected is more than welcome.

 

Studio, on location or both?

On location.

 

Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?

Photography is my passion, not my job.

 

What has been your most memorable session and why?

I don't feel like saying I have a memorable one: every session gives me something unique and unforgettable.

 

What has been the biggest source of inspiration in your work?

Berengo Gardin, Mario Zanaria, Toni Thorimbert, Peter Lindbergh and many others.

 

Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?

My equipment is exclusively Nikon. Favourite lenses: Nikkor 50mm f/1.4D, Zeiss 35mm Distagon f/2.

 

What is one piece of advice you would like to offer a new photographer looking to start their own business?

Here are my advices: to study the greatest masters' works, read and listen their interviews, shoot both digital and analogical and not keep buying new equipment.

 

What do you think of our new magazine?

An original and well-finished magazine oriented towards photographers and models.. Good work, keep it up!
