In the world of photography Gabriele grew up as an autodidact. While spending adventurers 5 months in Africa, his most beloved companion was his camera. The photographs that he took with it on the road inspired him in many ways. And, this love for photography encouraged him to create a website where he publishes all the images and the articles about his travels and the moments that he captures. If you meet an Italian on the road with a big smile, a backpack, and a camera, most likely it will be Gabriele, and he will be ready to share a new story that he experienced.
In this “Exclusive Interview” section, today we have the opportunity to talk with Gabriele Ferrazzi, as his photograph was winner of Photo of the Month – 23rd Month, 2nd Place. Let’s discover more about him, and his forays into photography in the following interview with him.
Gabriele Ferrazzi: I’m really honored to be selected as the winner of Photo of the Month (2nd place). It isn’t much time, that I have started to publish my works and this is a confidence boost for me!
Gabriele: I’m just on the first step of photography world. It’s so good that my photos are loved and I’ll try to grow up more and more. I hope to tell more and more stories with my photography…
Gabriele: I’m Italian, but I like to define myself like a world citizen. My country is a fantastic place, full of history, monuments and small villages with stories to tell. Probably all Italians have a small amount of artistic skill in DNA, but I think only knowing the differences around the world, it is possible to learn something useful.
L&C: We see so many different genres of photography in your portfolio. Do you like a particular genre of photography?
Gabriele: If I could choose, probably my perfect shot should be in the wild…but in any case, it’s a good think to know technique and good composition of many kind of photography. Probably it depends on my mood, some days I like to stay in a traffic of a metropolis, other day I prefer to stay alone in the middle of nowhere…
Gabriele: As I already said I am self taught. The process was natural and easy… I found a new passion and I followed my instinct. That’s what I do with my camera… The visualization is the result of my instinct.
Gabriele: Few of my photos were published on magazines and exposed in Rome, and I received a couple of recognitions , but I never organized a real exposition with my shots. I will do it in the future…
Gabriele: I started with five of my friends a new project about wild photography in the nature. We are building a website and as soon as possible and we will start to organize workshops and trips taking photos in the wild….
Gabriele: I don’t feel I can give advices… Just follow your passions and doing something natural… A good shot as like a good work in the life, will be done only if you will love what you are doing…
L&C: Thank you, Gabriele, for sharing your feelings and experiences with us.
Gabriele: Thank you too, to give me the opportunity to share my works and also to participate on your communities of photographer from all around the world.
