Fotograf Samo Rovan@rovan PRO
Ljubljana, Slovenien PRO
—Først og fremmest - hvem kan du navngive som den bedste fotograf i Ljubljana, Slovenien? :)
—It depends on who you ask.
In 2015 I was WPJA photographer of the year – worldwide.
—Hvordan blev du en del af fotografiindustrien?
—After working 7 years as a photojournalist and another 7 years as an architect I decided to become full-time wedding photographer.
—Hvad er de vigtigste komponenter i et godt billede efter din mening?
—The strong content.
—Hvad kan du bedst lide ved dit fag?
—For me the best thing to do in life is shooting weddings.
—Er der nogen tendenser inden for fotografering?
—There are, but I don't believe in them. I don't like trends. They come and go. For me, photography should be timeless. So I practice nice colors and black & white photographs with strong content.
—Hvad bør kriterierne være for en kunde, der skal vælge en fotograf?
—I always say to my clients – think about what will your kids see in your wedding album, when they will get married after 20/30 years.
—Hvilke detaljer, der som regel går ubemærket hen, vil en fotograf bemærke?
—A good photographer can capture beautiful photos of the couple but also the hidden/small moments that no one sees. A good photographer can capture the 'making of' at the same level as the 'must be' photos.
—Hvem vil du gerne fotografere?
—I've photographed Hollywood movie stars, super-rich people, politicks,... but also very normal couples. For me is the same. It's not about what the people are or do, the wedding is about the love between two souls.
—Hvad har været det mest imponerende øjeblik i dit liv?
—In personal life – definitely my kids birth. In professional career – winning the Photographer of the year 2015 title by Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA). Another huge moment was speaking in front of almost 2000 people at the Wedding Brasil conference in Sao Paulo.
—Hvem inspirerer dig i dit liv, og hvorfor?
—My wife and my kids. They are my biggest inspiration. My son is a very talented football player. Daughter is a national champion in saxophone. And my wife – I'd never be where I am without her!
—Hvad laver du i din fritid?
—I love trail running. So I try to spend as much time in nature and mountains as possible. Now and then I also make something from wood.
