Hi Emanuele, welcome to Lomography. Why don't you start by telling us when your photography career has started?
It started in 2009 when I moved from Rome to London. At the beginning, I shot mostly fashion/backstage/parties for my website Livincool. After a few years, I started to shot more portraits and editorials.
I obtained my US working visa at the end of the 2015 and since then I've started to come to Los Angeles more often. The main reasons why I chose Los Angeles are the perfect weather and the fantastic sunsets you can enjoy in this city.
What are you working on at the moment?
I am working on different projects, especially on a book and the merchandise for Livincool, which is basically my new brand.
Which aspect of your work you like the most?
Well, it's a job that I never mind to do. Photography has given me the opportunity to meet a lot of people and to travel around the world. I always like to establish a connection with the people I portray and most of them have become my friends as well.
What did you shoot with the Lomo'Instant Wide and which feature have you enjoyed the most?
I shot several landscapes and landscape portraits, I really enjoyed the camera. I like a lot the possibility to disable manually the flash, a feature which is not very common in other cameras.
My suggestion is to experiment and have fun with it. It is a brilliant camera and I love the design too!
