Fotograf Samo Rovan@rovan PRO
Ljubljana, Slovenia PRO
—Først og fremst, hvem vil du si er den beste fotografen i Ljubljana, Slovenia? :)
—It depends on who you ask.
In 2015 I was WPJA photographer of the year – worldwide.
—Hvordan ble du en del av fotografbransjen?
—After working 7 years as a photojournalist and another 7 years as an architect I decided to become full-time wedding photographer.
—Hva er de viktigste komponentene i et bra bilde etter din mening?
—The strong content.
—Hva liker du best med yrket ditt?
—For me the best thing to do in life is shooting weddings.
—Finnes det noen trender innen 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.
—Hva bør kriteriene være for en kunde som skal velge 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, som vanligvis ingen ville lagt merke til, kan en fotograf fange opp?
—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 kunne du tenkt deg å 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.
—Hva er det mest imponerende øyeblikket i livet ditt?
—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 deg i ditt 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!
—Hva gjør du i fritiden din?
—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.
