Fotografer Samo Rovan@rovan PRO
Ljubljana, Slovenia PRO
—Pertama-tama – menurut Anda, siapa fotografer terbaik di Ljubljana, Slovenia? :)
—It depends on who you ask.
In 2015 I was WPJA photographer of the year – worldwide.
—Bagaimana awal Anda masuk ke bidang fotografi?
—After working 7 years as a photojournalist and another 7 years as an architect I decided to become full-time wedding photographer.
—Apa komponen terpenting dari foto yang baik menurut Anda?
—The strong content.
—Apa yang paling Anda suka tentang profesi Anda?
—For me the best thing to do in life is shooting weddings.
—Adakah tren dalam fotografi?
—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.
—Apa yang seharusnya menjadi kriteria bagi pelanggan dalam memilih fotografer?
—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.
—Detail apa yang umumnya lewat tanpa disadari yang tertangkap oleh fotografer?
—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.
—Siapa yang ingin Anda jepret?
—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.
—Apa momen paling mengesankan dalam hidup Anda?
—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.
—Siapa yang menginspirasi Anda dalam hidup dan mengapa?
—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!
—Apa yang Anda lakukan di waktu luang?
—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.
