10 Sep Celebrity portrait
Venice is the center of major events of international importance during the year, one of these is the Venice Film Festival. The best time of the year to achieve a celebrity portrait. The Venice Cinema Biennale end the summer season. Large groups of journalists, TV crews, actors and directors from all over the world fill the streets of the Lido. A hectic journey that has as its epicenter the glorious Hotel Excelsior a Belle Époque jewel also appeared in some scenes of the feature film “Once upon a time in America”.
Taking part in all this frenzy, for a photographer, can be a bit unnerving but can also become an unmissable opportunity to enrich your portfolio. It must be said that press accreditations are issued only for agency reporters and journalists. A press conference can become an opportunity to meet more closely the cast of some films in the competition and why not, in my case, the sponsor of the Venice Film Festival, Sonia Bergamasco. A few moments, to capture his attention, between an interview, makeup, and another shooting. In these situations especially when shooting with celebrities, the time factor is very important. Few shots, no forcing on the subject.
