"Life and photography are similar. Focus on what counts, capturing beautiful moments, analyzing to improve. And if things doesn't work, try again a new shoot"
Straight italian gentleman, former actor, musician, collaborating with some TV and well experienced photographer. With a Renaissance vision of life and spirit of freedom, I live in my park in an ancient countryside described by Lonely Planet as the less known and the most beautiful area of the world only after an atoll of the Cook Islands. Hedonistic, I love the good life, photography, entertaining at piano and organ, antiques, shooting guns, wellness. At the same way I don't like ignorance, superficiality or moralism. Some precious inches over the flat reality, I catch atmospheres with the goal of a photo gallery exhibition or a table photo book.
2.THE RIGHT MODEL
Exists an ideal, or a right model? Naturally yes. A normal girl of any size and any experience could be the right model as long as: open minded, indipendent, free, easy to collaborate with, curious, hedonistic. My favorite model is a long-term friendly model, a magnetic woman with a sense of art who loves to flirt with the camera with complicity and fun. A model who is not just looking for pay shootings, but first of all for a new unusual, quirky, creative project, ready to travel for the right one. Like in terms of photography, my images are primarily for the art and not for a commercial use, at the same time the right model loves to be photographed as a real muse...
After many works, doing photography for pure pleasure. It is therefore very important that a shoot also fun is. No stress hassle, but in a pleasant way together achieve a good result. Not looking for a difficult person, but of a model following the instructions of the photographer with mutual respect. The right model easy to get along and to experiment, will enjoy of a great shooting time. An independent, free, open minded, trusty model is uncommon. Sometimes she lives distant then I'll be happy to offer board and lodging in my villa with photostudio where a model will be free to enjoy also the nature of the area, or if prefer, will enjoy also artistic beauties of Rome. In special cases, I can also help to find collaborations in the fashion or in the TV business.
For a creative project with a selected model, I pay in digital fine Jpeg TFI (Time For Images), to enrich our own SC (Set Card) and also more use. The model and the photographer will have the same right of use of the images. I don't exclude even to send later to the model also edited pics and/or copy of some publications.
If you travel by plane to the villa for a photo shoot, is helpful your dates flexibility and also the use of some special travel websites on the web to find easily a direct and a really cheap flight. I suggest to the model of moving always with especially useful and cheap travel websites (for example: SKYSCANNER).
Instead it's not helpful to bring your entire wardrobe, unless you are creating a specific fashion catalogue. My photography is based on the female beauty, character, magnetism in her figure, then, it takes along a pair of sandals with high heels and a good make-up. If it will serve, however, are available for you clothes and make-up in place cause of the villa is equipped with various props type. Famous the phrase of Jean Cocteau "The prettiest dresses are worn to be taken off"
The villa with photostudio and own park is located in an area of 200 villas situated in an amazing historical countryside between lakes, open thermes, special flavors, not far from Rome and the Mediterranean Sea. The surrounding are described by international press like the countryside the less known and the most beautiful in the world. The stay at the villa is normally pleasant, safe and comfortable. The model has its own comfortable room with a large bed with direct access to the park and her private bathroom. The villa/photo studio has make-up room, laundry, barbecue, two fireplaces and a single Jacuzzi. A basic Wi-Fi router guarantees a browsing online.
When the photographer and model requirements well coincide, in addition to the TFI shooting, I can offer board and lodging free in villa, plus 100,00 euro tribute refunded (directly in Italy) for travel expenses.
Model release with same rights for model and photographer is mandatory.
