This is Andrea, AD at Armando Testa, with whom I worked this last job I did. I’m not a people photographer but when I saw the light and the shadows, I shouted Freeze! and jumped on my camera. Being a daylight photographer means that you often have to wait until the right light appears, if you’re unlucky it never comes.
Yesterday I came back from Milan after four intense days of work. I’m doing the the impact photos for two Christmas catalogues for a major food chain here in Italy, Esselunga, and this was just the start, I will be going up and down for another three weeks.
Sometimes you just have to go on intuition which was exactly was I did when I had to hire a photo studio in Milan, surfing on the net, I found a fantastic studio, Cantina Bovisa and after having talked with one of the owners on the phone I went for it and I do not regret it, it’s a great space and great people-I couldn’t ask for more could I?
We have been working something like 10 hours a day, me and the people concerned from the ad agency Armando Testa to shoot half of the photos needed for the first catalogue, next week we are doing the rest, then we start on the second catalogue which deals more directly with food and where I will have the help of a food stylist.
Leaving you with some photos from the studio
