面试

  • 您上相吗?

    Good one! Ana and I often get asked by other photographers from all over the world to pose for them for their portfolios in Paris. Not sure if that means that we are photogenic, we are just different and that is always fun to photograph.

  • 您是如何进入摄影行业的?

    My wife has had a wedding photography business in Austria before we even met and I was working in fashion photography. Once we tied the knot and moved to Paris it was just a natural thing for me to join forces with her and now we work as a tandem. Every single photo we deliver gets shot by either of us, color corrected by Ana and then skin retouched by me to the fashion photography standard.

  • 在您看来,一张好的照片最重要的组成部分有哪些?

    As an avid cinema lover I'm fascinated with capturing emotion in a cinematographic way. The true connection read in the photograph in one frozen in time moment for me is what makes a good photograph. It has to tell a story and reflect the character of people in it. If it we up to me I wouldn't care for the backdrop, but working in Paris it's a fine line between architecture vs the couple in it. Still discovering my way to tell the best narrative while also focussing on the backdrop to it.

  • 您热爱旅行吗?

    Yes! Being from Costa Rica I have lived in Sweden, Canada, the US, Austria and now France, my wife is Russian and she lived in Italy, Germany and Austria before we met. In between the two of us we speak 6 languages, so traveling is a way of live for us and we enjoy it immensely.

  • 对于您的职业,您最喜欢什么地方?

    That's an easy one – making people happy!

  • 对于您的职业,您最不喜欢什么地方?

    Time! The reality of the fact that time is a finite resource and catering mostly to travellers we often have to say no to a couple who otherwise would be a perfect fit because another perfect fit has already booked their date. I think saying no in general is the hardest thing for me as a wedding professional!

  • 摄影的前景如何?

    In the past wedding photography has been a narrow field but now with the advancement of technology and wider variety of choices there are so many paths to develop. Film photography has made a big and luxurious comeback. Social media and search engine optimisation have made it more difficult to shine with just the photos and make us work that much harder on being great marketers too. What my hope is that in the sea of voices and choices it would still be possible for each bride to connect with her perfect storyteller of a photographer, but how only future will show.

  • 您专长的摄影风格有什么特别?

    A wedding is a special moment for me when a couple come together in a celebration of what makes them different, defines their choices as individuals and shows all the points two people connect and blend in their unique way. Capturing all the little details and emotions of what makes that couple different from any other couple is what makes wedding photography as epitome of a lovestory magical for me.

  • 您如何应对批评?

    To quote a comedian "I was raised up to be an insult navy seal" – nothing gets under my skin. I don't mind any opinion and I will always try to get constructive criticism from it.

  • 摄影有什么趋势?

    My favorite two are the return of film photography and the return of the vintage film looks driven by the creations of VSCO and MastinLabs.

  • 客户选择摄影师时应该遵循什么标准?

    The very first one – can they see themselves as the people in the photos in the portfolio of this photographer. Second, when they talk to the photographer can they see him/her as potentially being one of their group of friends. This defines whether they like what the photographer has to offer skill-wise and whether the chemistry to capture that is present.

  • 拍摄时绝不允许什么事情?

    It's a totally situational question – as a wedding photographer I pretty much need to be there and capture what unfolds and not be too intrusive. Not allowed is probably just asking me to hold my camera and play with it LOL.

  • 有哪些摄影师可以捕捉的通常会被忽略的细节?

    Details! Hands holding during the ceremony, mom crying during the vows, the flower girl staring at the bride with an open mouth – those kind of details. During the wedding the guests are so focused on the couple, that what unfolds around them often goes unnoticed to their eyes.

  • 什么影响照片的价值?它的元素有哪些?

    The emotion, the composition, the location – in that order! Yes, the location doesn't matter as much as catching a cinematic and real emotion.

  • 在您看来,什么人可以成为 21 世纪的代表人物?

    In a society as diverse as ours I can't name one particular person because that would be too restrictive. I would rather point out a modern day nomad, a boho bride, a Kinkfolk reader – that's the symbol of going back to our roots, appreciating simple and healthy way of life and of love.

  • 您想要为谁拍摄?

    My client. The couple who choose me for my style and my personality and who I feel like they fit well with me.

  • 您有职业禁忌吗?

    Yes, client poaching. There are plenty of clients for all of us.

  • 您想与谁一起拍摄?

    I'm a happy man, as I'm already shooting with my perfect partner.

  • 您担心什么?为什么担心?

    The answer is always – time. There is too little of it and always too much to do.

  • 在生命中,给您印象最深的时刻是什么?

    Getting a callback for a job interview in the team of Rankin, who is one of my fashion photography idols.

  • 如果有机会成为一个动画、文学或电影人物,您想成为谁?为什么?

    Christopher Nolan's Interstellar is a metaphorical letter from him to his daughter. In the movie, McConaughey's character Cooper goes through time and space to save his daughter as well as keeping the promise he made to her.
    I'd like to believe that I would be Cooper – go through time and space for my family and keep my promise.

  • 在生命中谁鼓舞了您?为什么?

    Bruce Lee, because he had a really inspirational world view.

  • 您如何定义成功?如何衡量它?

    Success for me is not having unhappy clients. As long as it's down I now that I'm doing something right.

  • 您非常受人喜欢或尊敬吗?

    Respected.

  • 您在工作中犯过的最大错误是什么?

    Forgetting the name of the bride's mom. Embarrassing!

  • 当您准备去旅行时,要携带什么?为什么?

    Passport, medicine kit, camera gear, change of clothes. I'm simple this way.

  • 在您拥有的器材中,是否有一些是您后悔购买的?为什么?

    Nope.

  • 您如何提高自己以拍摄出更好的照片?

    Look, look, and look. Wedding blogs and favorite photographers help me to identify what I gravitate towards the most.

  • 谁的作品对您作为摄影师的影响最大?

    My wife and Ivan Troyanovsky. As they are friends it's really – being a part of that creative group that puts cinematography first.

  • 开始拍摄时,您最想知道什么?

    That answering emails and managing business is taking up more time than the actual picture taking. Having been prepared for that I would have an easier road.

  • 您想对自己的照片说什么?

    For me it's not what I want to say but what I want the captured moment to say – I want my photo to end up on the wall in my couple's house and for them to tell their grandchildren all the stories about their wedding day when they ask.

  • 什么激励您继续拍摄下去?

    My wife – seeing her passion for it and being able to be alongside her in our life and our work. There is no other thing I'd rather be doing.

  • 您的父母是否应该更严厉或变得温和一点呢?

    I wasn't really raised by a full family, rather my life has taught me and I wouldn't change a thing.

  • 如果能够回到过去,您会有什么不同的举动?

    So far so good.

  • 对于其他星球上的生命,您有何看法?

    Sure :)

  • 谁是您的英雄?

    Bruce Lee, Valentino Rossi, my wife.
