In his work he is following the words of Helmut Newton "I have always avoided photographing in the studio.
A woman does not spend her life sitting or standing in front of a seamless white paper background". So Italian photographer Marco Boccato is the perfect candidate to be featured in Streetfashion MagZZine. We got in contact with him via Facebook already two years ago and have featured him before, but love to update our last article and show you a glimpse of his current work.
Marco, please tell us a little bit about yourself to begin with.
Hi, I'm Marco Boccato, also known as Marco Eventi Photography, a photographer for fashion, portrait, fine art and fantasy. I'm based in Italy in the Veneto region, precisely in Port Viro in the province of Rovigo.
I am known for my headshot and half body portraits with available light. In addition to photography I am the only organizer of fashion events in the lower Polesine area in Italy since 2012.
Remind us how you first became interested in photography?
My interest in photography was born in 2004. I started to take photos of almost everything. My interest grew step by step to finally become a great passion in the last 5 years. As you might remember from our last interview my interest in photography - to create an image, that remains over the time and provides good memories – was born as I was in London with my girlfriend and since then every shot, that I performed, got me always more excited.
What equipment are you using?
I still work with the equipment mentioned last time, what is a SLR camera from Nikon combined with 85 mm f1.4, 50 mm f 1.8 as well as 17-50 f 2.8 - 4 lenses.
What is your conception of beauty?
I define the beauty of a person by the right amount of trust and humility. It is amazing how this affects the way, a subject will appear both in front of the camera and as a person itself.
What are your current goals in photography?
My biggest goals should be a good relationship to clients as well as creating a distinctive aspect of my work, that is easily recognizable, and writing some viral content,
What would you say characterizes your work in comparison to other photographers?
Basically nothing has changed. I still think I have a good composition and to create elegant and evocative scenes. My color grading is quite identifiable and I try to pay close attention to the detail.
What do you hope to be doing in the next 5 years?
I like to travel around the world for work to find new sources of photographic inspiration.
