Interview: Photographer Oscar Lacroix (Spain)
Tell us something about yourself
Photograph with great ideas, the search for great challenges and work with amazing people in the world of modeling. Both the beauty of women as the hardness of man.
My work speaks for itself, each of the shots is an expression of my inner and my concept of the picture, look for That, the maximum expression .. as long as the project interesting.
Love the motivation, I seek the trust between the model and my camera to achieve the perfection of the challenge.
My models consider a crazy photographer for the creativity and the constant movement of a side to find the perfect point
How and when did you get into photography?
I started in photography at the age of 17, in the world of underwater photography, with my uncle, photographer and mentor.
I saw that I needed another vision, the restlessness to find ways to photograph and I dedicated myself to the beauty and sensuality of each woman before my camera, I think there is a point of no return when you enter the game and you want to win.
I want sensuality,beauty,strength,expresiveness….. all
What does photography mean to you?
Means the PERFECT MOMENT to show the most demanding interior to the simplest exterior of a model.
Back home, stand in front of a computer and think "I'm dying for my job"
Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.
My style in photography is developed in sensuality and elegance, a mixture of both.
I love the boudoir,I mix that style with swimwear and sport
Where do you get inspiration from?
I've been following dozens of great world photographers dedicated to these styles to whom I look at each image and I think that's what I want to achieve.
It is something that I could not explain, before each shot I have no idea what will come out, how to put me, how to think ,,, something inside me says "this is the moment"
Think you in advance what you want in the picture?
All the shootings are prepared with intensity but always comes the improvisation and that is also great

Always have my muses, people who give you strength in each image, Without them you could never get the beauty, elegance, sensuality, strength, style
