We’re glad to present you today our new contributor and photographer, Luca Piras! You have already seen some of his images here, and now you’re knowing him a little bit more with an interview in pure Candies-style.
Hi Luca, first of all I want to say thank you for the passion you show for Candiesmagazine.com. How old are you and where do you come from?
Hello everyone, I’m 20 and I’m from Turin…
*How long have you been loving photography?
…I’ve been loving photography for almost 3 years, since when I started shooting with my first compact camera…
…surely it was also thanks to my father’s passion for photography and also the fact that I’ve always loved extreme and less common sports…
*What’s that passionate you the most into sports photography? And what are the sports that you love shooting the most?
…Sport is an endless resource of images that can be shooted and moreover sports photography is real and spontaneous…Till now I’ve had the opportunity to shoot at some downhill and bmx contests…If I had the chance, I would like to capture any extreme sport…
*What’s you equipment? Camera body, lenses etc?
….Currently I’m using a Nikon d3000 with 18-55 f3,5/5.6, 50mm f1.8, 18-200 and an old sb-24
*What are your favourite lenses among those that you already own?
Surely the brightness of the 50mm f 1.8
*If you could choose the lenses you want without caring of the price, what would you choose?
… I’d surely choose some creative and funny lenses, a fish-eye or also a bright tele it wouldn’t be bad…
*Your favourite brand?
…I know that someone won’t agree with me, but I prefer Nikon….
*What do you do in your life, are you studying/working?
… I’m looking for a job, but unfortunately it’s not easy….
*Your plans for the future?
…To become the photographer of some magazine should be nice…we’ll see
*What sport do you practice?
…some snowboarding during winter and downhill during summer…
*If you were obliged to choose, snowboard or downhill?
*What kind of different sensations give you those two sports, so differents but both bond with mountain?
…the opportunity to leave the city and to come in close contact with the mountains using what they offer to us…
*Your favourite bike spots? And the snowboard ones?
…for the bikes I say Prali, it has a lot to teach and it can be a good to practice, but also Bardonecchia offers a lot of fun…talking about snow I love the snowy peaks of Montgenevre…
*Park or pow? Be careful, this could be a compromising answer
…I’m not a champion but I prefer the pow
*Do you think that a thousands euros equipment is essential to take good pictures?
..well I think that it can help a lot, but without fantasy and a good hand they are wasted
*What do you think about Candiesmagazine.com? Suggestions/advices?
…Candiesmagazine .com it’s a great idea to support all these expandig sports
*Coming to end, you have the floor. What would you like to say to our readers? Is there anyone you’d especially like to say thanks?
… Surely I thank you of Candiesmagazine for the nice opportunity you’re giving me, and I hope it’ll be the beginning of a future career…Thanks…And hello everyone!!YOU MIGHT ALSO LIKE: INTERVIEWS
