DANIELE ARRIGO

I try to be self-motivated, but when I'm in need of a boost I look at other people's work, or listen to some good music, or watch a good movie! Everything can be an inspiration! I look up to people like Emanuele Ferrari, Terry Richardson, Larsen Sotelo, Jared Thomas and many many others...

A girl has to be fun and open-minded. I think it really shows in the pictures when the model is enjoing what she's doing. It's a turn off for me when the model says she doesn't want to do some specific kind of photos before the shoot, it should not be all about nudity and sex but sadly for many people it still is. As for the looks, I like skinny girls with some unique facial features, but I'm really open to all kind of models.

I like to shoot streetwear. I think it fits really well with my kind of photography! I also like really simple basic underwear and sporty stuff like sneakers, swimsuits and so on. I think it would be a real challenge for me to shoot high fashion runway type of stuff but in the future who knows? Fake it till you make it, right?

When I first started out, I used to direct the models a lot, like do this or that pose and stuff like that. Nowadays, I want the models to express themselves and do what they feel, and I only "correct" them if needed. I feel like this way the photos come out much more natural and have that candid feel I go after. I also like to talk about random stuff during the shoot and very little about photography, that way the model kinda forgets what we're doing and acts even more natural.

One of the most challenging aspects of my work, but one that I'm grateful for is: Man, this is tough... I'd say dealing with people. I'm not really a people person and I enjoy my alone time, but photography gave me the possibility of meeting many awesome and likeminded people that wouldn't be possible otherwise.

I'm optimistic but also realistic. While many people seem to like my stuff, I'm aware that this is a very competitive field and that everyday a new talented young photographer pops out of nowhere. In photography, I'm not outcome dependent. I would keep doin' this shit even if I had two followers on Instagram and no money in my bank account, I just do it cause I love it!

The end of civilzation will be caused by: Okay, I wasn't expecting this one. I think a zombie apocalypse or a Godzilla event of some sort would be the best, but I think a slow painful environmental destruction will likely be what is goin' to happen in the - I hope not so near - future.
