- Order Summary
I love art, every kind of it, from the use of light in XVII century paintings to the way modern artists see the world through their art works.
I love travelling, especially with my old Mini and my Vespa and discovering new amazing places around me, those spots that are not in road maps and are unknown for most of the people.
I enjoy reading Superheroes comics and watching cartoons. You’re never too old for them, nor for collecting Lego as I do.
HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN PHOTOGRAPHY?
I started a long time ago, it seems ages now! I was only 18 and I was studying photography in high school and to get some pocket money I used to work during summer holidays with a local and old school wedding photographer that introduced me in this world. Then I completely fell in love with wedding photography and you know how love works, you want to know everything about the other half, so the more I shot the more I wanted to know about this amazing world, about other photographers, also from abroad, other styles and so on. I started to feel like I needed to escape from traditional photos, they were so cold to me and I needed to express something more in my pictures to be true to myself and the couples. That's how everything started!
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
I hope my style represents myself: spontaneous, fun, always looking at the bright side of life.
WHAT DO YOU LOOK FOR IN AN IMAGE?
That depends on the photo whether it is a posed or a stolen one. In a posed photo the aesthetic beauty is at the service of the creativity to realize a specific idea. In reportage photos the gesture is really important to me. You can have the most technically well done photo, but with no gesture in it, what will you remember in 10 or 20 years? Memory is so fragile sometimes that it fades away really quickly and the photos can help you to relive those moments and feelings again and again.
WHAT INSPIRES OR MOTIVATES YOU?
Almost everything inspires me, from comic books to Caravaggio, that I truly love, to music or even crosswords in the newspaper... I think that we can find inspiration in everything that surround us. We, as wedding photographers shouldn't focus only on wedding photography per se, but be open as much as possible. Wedding photography is a part of a whole and for that it should live interconnected with all the other means of expression.
WHAT CHALLENGES YOU?
Every wedding is different one from another: different people, sometimes totally different cultures, different locations and you have to know exactly how to react and be prepared in every situation.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MOMENT OF A WEDDING?
Definitely the party. Tension is over and people are themselves, they have fun, relax and enjoy their day.
OF ALL YOUR IMAGES, DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE ONE?
One of my favourite photos is that with the kid that takes a bite of the cake right before the cake cutting. I wouldn't believe when I saw him and I loved his spontaneity and hunger for fun, maybe because I'm like him, still that kid deep down.
ANYTHING ELSE WE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT FABIO?
I love being a wedding photographer, it's not only a job for me, it's also a passion and I have a lot of fun doing that. The day I get bored will be the day I will probably stop shooting.
TELL US ABOUT DVLOP
Definitely a good preset can speed up the processing part, considering that editing for me is like a photographer's signature and I take care of it very much. Having the opportunity to choose among a lot of presets like those that DVLOP offers can allow a photographer to find the one closer to his personal features and let his work be more fluent.
