Marina Prinzi, fashion & beauty photographer 

1. Career as a photographer

In 2011 I moved to Switzerland.

The business world didn't really care about photography then. The visual component was not a priority, as it is now.

It was a risky movement, because the photographer's job is far from financially stability. But Switzerland and now my home town of Lugano especially inspired me.

I have always loved photography, since I was a child. I got it from my father: he had old cameras, pictures which he regularly developed himself.

I shot the whole family, my friends, and everything that I found interesting for the images.

In Switzerland I bought my first professional camera and started shooting. And from that moment on, we became inseparable in the truest sense of this word.

2. Why beauty and fashion photography

In 2014 I graduated from the Diego Dalla Palma make-up school in Milan and started shooting my own make-up works.

And at that moment I realized that the profession of a makeup artist is not exactly what I would like. At the same time, those skills contributed to my further development in the art photography.

I paid special attention to the final works that I shot. I understood through the lens of the camera how to properly show makeup, under what angles it looks particularly advantageous.

I think that makeup skills are good for every girl. Knowing how the textures of the beauty products, color combinations, the play of light and shadows work is also useful in everyday life.

All these skills led me to beauty and fashion photography.

3. What inspires

The photographer is inspired by life. It can be people, locations, good and bad weather, a cool movie, favorite music.

You hear the song, close your eyes and imagine the picture that arises and the way it can be captured.

It can be designer clothing. I want to shoot immediately the model in the image that caused emotions.

It can also be even the simplest things in our everyday life.
