    KIDS ADVERTISING

    sui giornali in giro in questo periodo le mie nuove ADV per il gruppo SPAZIO SEI, per il quale curo da tempo l’immagine pubblicitaria.

    per il brand MISS BLUMARINE abbiamo scattato a parigi, in linea con lo stile lussuoso e romantico di questo marchio:

    non c’entra nulla ma metto qui una fotina fatta con l’iphone, poco prima di fare l’immagine qui sopra, ad un “collega” (quanto odio la parola “collega”, ma proprio per questo mi piace usarla un sacco…) impegnato, con mezzi ben superiori ai miei, a fotografare un vispo matrimonio cinese:

    ====================================================

    per il brand MISS BLUAMRINE JEANS abbiamo invece noleggiato un autentico school bus americano:

    ====================================================

    molto divertente lo shooting del brand PARROT: abbiamo costruito una casetta, all’inizio bella bianca e pulita alla fine completamente dipinta dai bimbi scatenati. fin dall’inizio (nonostante l’argomento fosse drasticamente diverso!) avevo in mente il famoso ritratto di keith haring della leibovitz…

    questa era la finta stanzetta all’inizio dello shooting:

    e così alla fine. (ancora trovo resti di colore nei vestiti usati quel giorno…):

    ====================================================

    per il brand ICEBERG abbiamo fatto una storia più rock:

    ====================================================

    infine per il brand Ki6, di ispirazione ecologico/naturale, abbiamo costruito una sorta di boulangerie francese:

    PHRASES ON SET

    A small anthology of typical phrases you hear on set. If you are a rookie try and say these words during a photoshoot: your quotes will immediately take you up the ladder:

    -I LOVE IT!

    -LET’S TRY WITH AND WITHOUT

    -MODERN!

    -ANTIQUE!

    -IT MIGHT BE TOO MUCH

    -IT MIGHT BE TOO LITTLE

    -WHAT?! BUT DON’T YOU KNOW THAT TOM, DICK, HARRY, PHILIP, GEORGE CLOONEY, FIORELLO, MAURIZIO COSTANZO, RENZO ROSSO, THE POPE, NAPOLITANO… GOING UP AND UP UNTIL YOU GET TO THE LORD ALMIGHTY (WITH ALL THE ANGELS, C’MON! IT CAN’T BE ANYTHING BUT THAT).. IN SHORT DIDN’T YOU KNOW THEY WERE GAY!!!! BUT EVERYONE KNOWS THAT!!!!!\

    -COME ON, HE IS A DOG!

    -THEY ARE SO GOOD IN LONDON/PARIS/NEW YORK!

    -LIKE THAT IS SUPER CHIC

    -THERE AREN’T GOOD LOOKING MODELS, THEY ARE ALL IN NEW YORK (BUT IF YOU ARE SHOOTING IN NEW YORK THEY ARE ALL IN LONDON OR PARIS)

    -AH! THE EIGHTIES!

    -LET’S TRY AND DE-DRAMATISE WITH…

    -WE ONLY LIKE IT LIKE THAT

    SPORTWEEK DREAMS: NINA SENICAR

    Last but not least, the images of the guest star for this first edition of sportweek dreams, Nina Senicar.

    Her editorial was the most traditional and unabashed style of SPORTS ILLUSTRATED: simple images, with the model being sensual and provocative.

    Here are the photographs:

    Here is the backstage video:

    And this is the video I shot myself:

    Here is the interview with Nina.

    With this post I end the tales of the SPORTWEEK DREAMS adventure. It has been a very important project for me and for my studio, at which we have dedicated a lot of energy: the production lasted about two months, with the preparation and the shooting, which took place in two weeks at the British Virgin Islands, in the Caribbean. In fact we didn’t only take the photographs, which indeed have been the last link in a very long and complex chain: we did in fact take care of both the creative and production stages.

    For this complexity the project would not have had the success it had without the fundamental contribution of many people, which I would now like to thank:

    Andrea Monti, the big boss: who believed in the project since the beginning

    Matteo Dore, the director: with extreme intelligence and humility he approached a world that is not his own, giving a major contribution so that things would work to their most.

    Giovanni Nipoti, from marketing: he made sure that everything had the fundamental fuel (ok, the dough…) and to have been a fundamental moneymaker!

    Giuseppe Marsicano, the hair & make up: his fun, his competence, his intelligence  have been key in making our models beautiful

    Luca Stefanelli, the stylist: his fun, his competence, his intelligence  have been key in making our models beautiful (did I say this already?!? So think at the square luck I had!)

    Daria Longinotti, my producer: her enthusiasm has simply made possible to do in two months what would have been done in at least six

    Pasqualte Ettorre, my assistant: his come back alive and well, not the least

    Giorgio Ghilseni, backstage video operator: he perfectly insterted himself in a gang of mad people without flinching

    And finally Manja, Natalia, Linda, Dayane and Nina, our models: they have been truly exceptional, extraordinary. I really would not know how to prefer one over another, all wonderful!

    THANK YOU EVERYONE!

    WORKSHOCK CORIGLIANO THE END

    The workshock has come to an end (copyright francesca stella!) which took place in Corigliano Calabro, within the festival that is held there since nine years, for the passion and love of photography by Gaetano Gianzi and Cosmo Laera.

    The workshock has been really interesting, as well as very tiring: not because the “students” weren’t dedicated, but because every time I try to give, give, give and give more. Honestly its exhausting.

    A really interesting fact is that the best work were made by three girls (one of which, Martina, 17 years old!) and was basically the first time they took a camera in hand: knowing too much (or, rather, to think to know…) is obviously a burden hard to eliminate.

    It is much better knowing to not know, rather than think you know…

    Nicola, one of the “students”, wrote on his blog a sort of diary of rhte three days: the first, the second and the third. The post written in the end is a little worrying: hope its all good!

    Really thanks to everyone for participating, thanks to the two models, as beautiful as brave, Arianna and Magena.

    The first day I took a photograph of Arianna, which I actually had in mind for some time and I hope in the future to have the time and inclination to develop: a group of people in a public place that completely ignore the presence, of course not “discreet”, of a completely naked woman. Perhaps I am the only one that can see this woman?

    Moreover this shot has served to show all the participants in the workshock, avoiding the usual big group:

    More words about the festival: for those who love photography this is an excellent time to share this passion with others. Everything is organised very well, as I mentioned above, but repeat it gladly, with passion and love by Gaetano Gianzi Cosmo Laera, which I want to thank publicly.

    To have in one place great photographers, curators, critics, journalists and so is a unique opportunity: I do suggest that you attend next year.

    And I also discovered that Franco Fontana is very nice!
