Emiliano Russo – Lifeboard – Daniela D’avino
I offer a multiple range of photography services although essentially I can define myself as a wedding photographer now, portraitist and a very skilled one in photography of interiors and architecture.
I do not think that a photographer must necessarily be specialized in one genre or even that it should have one distinctive style in that specific genre.
Life and creative process is a continuum. It ‘s just a wrong cultural vision to define boundaries and dichotomies that today more than ever are sterile and not even functional to the marketing strategies.
A wedding photographer should be also good at portrait photography and interior as well as still life.
I’m an “anarchist of photography”, self-taught at times, who only follows some models and teachers in order to give back some kind of emotion or feeling hidden in the picture.
I do not want and neither pretend to be given the status changing my style on the will of my clients. I love meeting the needs of those who commissioned me a job.
Personally I love to adapt my vision of the world to the inner world of those who hired me, not only in weddings and portraits but as my clients know very well, even in the photography of architecture and interiors.
Photography is not just technical. I am aware that photography will be more and more authorial. I constantly seek a balance between the emotions and strictly commercial needs. Therefore I am not a true artist. I am a creative person who works for a third party without giving up the world of emotions.
