"My mother inspired me to push myself beyond my limits all the time, she's a really nice and strong person. "
Model Citizen App is the platform where we recognise 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.
Christian is an inspiring individual who has some remarkable works that we absolutely had to publish. We love his creativity and art, and we are sure you will too!
How did you get to where you are now in your career?
When I was about 23 a friend of mine who was working for an Italian TV channel (Rai) as video editor told me that she looked at my photographs and she could see a promising photographer.
After that I started thinking about photography more seriously, now I'm 33.
How did your education prepare you for the future?
I did a business and marketing school while I was in Melbourne to know more about I could market myself online.
What person has been your inspiration in life? Who is your hero?
It could sounds a bit of a cliche but my mother inspired me to push myself beyond my limits all the time, she's a really nice and strong person.
Do you feel like you’ve met your goals and are successful?
There is still a lot of work to do, but I think professionals never stop learning, I'm quite happy of the goals I've reached.
If you had to do it over again, what would you change?
I wouldn't buy all the gear I've got at the moment because photography is simplicity and you can achieve great results with small budget equipment and your creativity.
What advice would you give someone who is young and wants to have a position such as yours one day?
I would tell him/her to think before taking photos not just "spray and pray".
How do you stay inspired?
Travelling, meeting people, listen to them and dreaming about my job, what can I do more, I can be inspired from watching a stain on the wall too.
What photography related things do you recommend?
Fashion, Travel more, meeting more people..
How can people reach you for a job? And how would they know your rate?
I've got a website www.cristianruboni.com or through Facebook. They know my rate when they contact me, I listen to what they need to do and I calculate a price for them.
What's your favourite camera?
My actual favorite camera is the Sony A7R II.
Tell us something very interesting while working with a model.
While working with a model be friendly, make them laughing, be a gentleman, never touch them to correct his/her pose or ask them if you can, always politely. Talk to them, ask them about what they love and what they are interested in.
