Photographer Samo Rovan@rovan PRO
Ljubljana, Slovenia PRO
—Unang una sa lahat - sino ang papangalanan mo na pinakamahusay na photographer sa Ljubljana, Slovenia? :)
—It depends on who you ask.
In 2015 I was WPJA photographer of the year – worldwide.
—Paano ka nagsimula sa industriya ng photography?
—After working 7 years as a photojournalist and another 7 years as an architect I decided to become full-time wedding photographer.
—Ano ang mga mahahalagang bahagi ng isang magandang larawan sa iyong opinyon?
—The strong content.
—Ano ang pinakagusto mo sa iyong propesyon?
—For me the best thing to do in life is shooting weddings.
—Mayroon bang mga trend ang photography?
—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.
—Ano ang dapat na pamantayan ng isang customer sa pagpili ng photographer?
—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.
—Ano ang mga detalye na kadalasan ay hindi napapansin na napapansin ng photographer?
—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.
—Sino ang gusto mong kuhaan?
—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.
—Ano ang pinakahanga-hangang pagkakataon sa iyong buhay?
—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.
—Sino ang nagbibigay inspirasyon sa iyong buhay at bakit?
—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!
—Ano ang iyong ginagawa sa iyong bakanteng oras?
—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.
