"My one tip: Be able to create good pictures in the technical sense with one flash"
Federico is based in Buenos Aires and we definitely had some difficulties understanding his accent! His work has extended internationally, working with mostly female fashion models. Federico has opened up to us about some tips and tricks that he has found useful in pursuing his photography career, and we can't wait to share them with you!
How did you get where you are now in your career?
A big sacrifice. To move from my country searching for a good photography academy and to continue being available to go every place in the world where you see that your work can be interesting. Maybe with my work, I don't "Discover America or Mars" at the moment, but every picture made by me has a combination between Think - Believe & Influences.
How did your education prepare you for the future?
Very important. Modelling is about discipline, expression, acting, culture, to understand what the people behind the camera want of you. And all of this, in different countries, idioms and climates. So it´s important if you have a good platform. I studied Model's direction in my Academy when I did the Master in fashion photography.
Do you feel like you’ve met your goals and are successful?
Yes, definitely. In this moment of my life and my career, I need the Public in the stadium and the Sponsors, more than goals. So maybe in this moment, it's much better to be the cheerleader more than the man who makes goals. But talking seriously you never got to stop, always playing in this competition with humility.
What advice would you give someone who is young and wants to have such a position as yours one day?
Have discipline. Watch everything, the classic, the new, the future, the incredible and the trash. And second, never gift your work, have criterion, and made of you a professional.
Who is your inspiration?
Maybe I can say my Mother but she doesn't take pictures :) . So the first in my mind are Helmut Newton, Peter Lindbergh, Wim Wenders and Bono. I think they are a good combination.
What Photography related things do you recommend?
Think in the power of the image, it has to be your Hit. Only one Light. Be able to create good pictures in the technical sense with one flash.
What is my Favourite Camera?
I love Medium Format cameras. Especially Big Cameras, with good grip and s big number of pixels resolution.
What is your most memorable moment as a photographer?
I really enjoy working with a Top Model, when she works perfectly and she gives you her all.
