Interview: Photographer Evelyn Magrì (Italy)
Tell us something about yourself
I’m Evelyn, 23 years old, from Rome, half Finnish.
So... in my life I am determined, precise and a good observer. When I photograph I become a true leader !! (I need to have everything under control)
How and when did you get into photography?
I have been always a fan of fashion! when I went to art school I wanted to be a fashion designer, but over time I have found a good alternative to express my vision of the woman. So I started to try and see the final result of my imagination.
After 4 years, I have consistently identified my style, my idea, my atmosphere and my concepts.
What does photography mean to you?
For me, photography is both to work with the head, but also with my feelings and dreams. Think at the details, and at the same time, get carried away by the moment and improvise!
Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.
I love the colors and liveliness! but also the romantic and soft style, never vulgar, but always elegant, feminine and artistic. I love special models, with their beauty and charisma, I transform each of them in the character who most i want....( for example if I want a princess, or a rebel, or a suffering or sensual girl, it depends on their personality and physicality)
Where do you get inspiration from?
The main inspiration comes from her face, after which I start fantasizing about the shooting and all the composition.
I love nature and sun light.
Think you in advance what you want in the picture?
Exactly, I am a "thinking head" sometimes in the night I can not fall asleep because I imagine the scenes, clothes, makeup and everything else! (When I shoot the last outfit, i enjoy it more and I get more ideas, i ask to the models to do crazy things! To finish off the shooting) eheh =)
Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?
It started as a passion, and it still is now !! I love this passion, but now it is also a paid job, not always, or rather those who want pictures, pay the work, passion and my immagination that I use, for personal research, they are also free!!!
Studio, on location or both?
I prefer the location, to Have more chance of frames and external elements. But I like the studio for other situations.
What has been your most memorable session and why?
I love all of my shooting, some more than others, surely.
What has been the biggest source of inspiration in your work?
My artistic spirit, which I have to express. For me it's like a challenge, I have to seize the perfect moment that makes me happy, it s always a click click clik! poor my canon!
Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?
Yes, i love Canon! I find it is easier to use!
What is one piece of advice you would like to offer a new photographer looking to start their own business?
I don’t have great tips, if anyone has for me!! Better!
What do you think of our new magazine?
It is a great magazine, which gives the possibility to employees all, photographers, models, etc, to tell their stories, and to have good visibility of their work.
The magazine has a wide range of moods, it following a good line in the choice of photos and has many initiatives!
