写真家Samo Rovan氏リュブリャナ, スロベニア rovan
—最初に - リュブリャナで最高の写真家として誰の名前を挙げることができますか？:)
—It depends on who you ask.
In 2015 I was WPJA photographer of the year – worldwide.
—After working 7 years as a photojournalist and another 7 years as an architect I decided to become full-time wedding photographer.
—The strong content.
—For me the best thing to do in life is shooting weddings.
—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.
—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.
—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.
—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.
—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.
—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!
—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.
