Featured Photographer: Pierpaolo Perri

Model Citizen App is the platform where we recognised fashion models, photographers, designers, makeup artists, hair stylists, creative directors, bloggers, stylists, and labels around the world.Every day, we feature an individual on Model Citizen Interviews. People get to know each of them- their hopes, challenges, aspirations and inspirations in life.

I work alone from the shoot to the edit. I usually don't overload myself as I want to be consistent (or improve) with the quality of my work.

Tell us something about yourself. What you do, passion and aspiration in life?

My name is Pierpaolo Perri; I'm a fulltime photographer. I live in Cosenza, deep south of Italy. I loved photography and videography since I was very young. At the moment my work is focused on wedding and event, but I'd like to become a fulltime fashion photographer.

Who is your inspiration in life? How do you keep inspired?

I keep shooting every day.

What is your aspiration in life? I'd like to become a fashion photographer and travel the world.

We all make mistakes we wish we could take back. Tell me about a time you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.

I really can't tell. At the moment I didn't have any problems with any colleague.

When you’re working with a large number of customers, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. How do you go about prioritising your customers’ needs?

I work alone from the shoot to the edit. I usually don't overload myself as I want to be consistent (or improve) with the quality of my work.

Tell me about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities.

I have to do every day and schedule everything because I have two sons and I enjoy spend a lot of time with them.

Give me an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.

I don't like to persuade people. When I am "the leader" in work I tend to plan everything as accurate that I could and to assign specific task, so there is no latitude for arguing.

Tell me about your proudest professional accomplishment.

I have many of this moment during the year because is a very special thing when a bride is super happy with her wedding album.

Give me an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?

I worked for an opening of a fashion store, quite far away from home, and I brought with me only one flash and one lens. When I arrived the day before the opening the customer told me that I should have shot some pictures of models for their social media, but I didn't have any equipment, so I used the flash wirelessly with no radio trigger and things that I found in the store as my modifiers: clothes, polystyrene, etc.

What was your most challenging encounter? How did you deal with it?

I faced death with an angry bride that was waiting for me at the entrance of the church. I am still alive.

What advice could you give to the people who are reading this?

I enjoy photography. I enjoy work and meet new people. I'd like to work in new places.
