NOAH PHARRELL

My crew. For me, my crew (make up artist, stylist, videographer and art director) are the main reason why I still continue working so hard everyday. They believe in me more than I do, so I'll never give up because they are not gonna let me do that. They are my artistic family. 

The night before a shoot, I cannot sleep well; my brain is working in a mad way that is difficult to explain. I want perfection, at least I try. When I arrive at the shooting place, days before I make a personal playlist in relation to the shoot theme. I switch it on to create an atmosphere. I used to get so nervous the first half hour when my MUHA was working with the model and I normally drink Monster Rehab to relax, or just coffee, but a big one. (laughing)

A few days ago, I had a fashion shoot with skater / surfer clothes, and I realized I was really excited. I felt confident but the most important thing was that I felt that the world makes me happy... When I have a test, I personally choose the clothes, sometimes from my own wardrobe, otherwise I buy special things for the models. But in a big shoot, like a fashion editorial or a fashion film, I have an awesome stylist who makes my life easier because she knows the things that I would like. She knows my mind and how I think, so it's great having that kind of relation with your crew, they are going to help you always. We always create chat groups to have everything under control and to motivate each other.

Years ago I found an old 600 Polaroid in a second-hand market. I have been always really interested in those pics, in the way they can steal your soul. So since the day I bought it, I couldn't stop taking Polaroids. Now I am using another one, a Fujifilm Instax 210 playing with double exposure (laughing). This is a game for me.

I really am [optimistic], as I have said before, being a photographer is a game for me, like I am never getting old with this. I can't stop taking photos from around me, I swear that, it's like a bad obsession. I always bring my Pentax k1000 in my bag ready for shoot. Meanwhile, I want to continue taking photos; everything's gonna be alright, at least for me, that makes me really happy! And happiness it's the main thing in my life.
