Fotograf Samo Rovan@rovan PRO
Ljubljana, Slovenia PRO
—În primul rând, pe cine puteți numi cel mai bun fotograf în Ljubljana, Slovenia? :)
—It depends on who you ask.
In 2015 I was WPJA photographer of the year – worldwide.
—Cum ați ajuns în industria fotografiei?
—After working 7 years as a photojournalist and another 7 years as an architect I decided to become full-time wedding photographer.
—Care sunt cele mai importante componente ale unei fotografii bune, după părerea dvs?
—The strong content.
—Ce vă place cel mai mult la profesia dvs?
—For me the best thing to do in life is shooting weddings.
—Există tendințe în fotografia?
—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.
—Care ar trebui să fie criteriile după care un client să aleagă un 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.
—Ce detalii de obicei neobservate de alții pot fi observate de un fotograf?
—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.
—Pe cine doriți să fotografiați?
—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.
—Care este cel mai impresionant moment din viața dvs?
—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.
—Cine vă inspiră în viață și de ce?
—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!
—Ce faceți în timpul liber?
—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.
