Interview with “professor” Silvia

150 150 Silvia Coluccelli

The new Baby Fashion issue is out. Every month this magazine publishes an interview with a Kids Fashion Photographer. This month it’s been my turn. You can find the interview here. Please take a seat and read it because, unlike the usual, I think I even said a few serious things!

In case you didn’t get it after reading the article I’ll say it again: I love my job!

One more thing. A few weeks back I started to contribute to the Total Photoshop portal. They’ve made me a “Professor” and to fit the role I’ve decided to grow a mustache. Alright, that was the silly joke of the day.

I had already been asked about my job by Total Photoshop a few years ago. You can find that interview here. Now they’ve asked me to deliver some tutorials on portrait photography.

The first one is dedicated to the greatest masters of portrait photography. Avedon, Irving Penn, just to name a few. I am aware that listening to someone who talks about the theory and the history of photography could be a little “boring”, but one can’t possibly think of becoming a portrait photographer without knowing something about the greatest portrait photographers of the past.

In case you decide to watch this video I got to warn you: I am not yet totally at ease in front of a (video) camera. It still feels kind of awkward being on the other side of the lens and having to talk and talk, trying to say something that makes sense, without losing the thread and avoiding grammatical mistakes.

I have to admit that it makes me feel nervous, my stomach shrinks, breathing becomes difficult and I can hardly listen to what I’m saying. Don’t worry though, everything else is fine.

Anyway, I’m working on it, and I’m sure I’ll get over it soon. It’s a challenge that I want to face and win, because I’m determined to share my knowledge and my passion, and nothing will stop me.
