Irene Di Salvo
I think that I am unique because I always smile, it doesn't matter if things go wrong, I see with positivity, and I believe in what I do.In my photos, I put all myself, to me photography means all.
Irene, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Photographer?
All started four years ago when my old friend Alessio gave me his camera to take photos during our travel. At that moment I fell in love with photography, and I wanted to learn more and more every day. Two years ago I bought my first camera, and from that day I know what I want to do in my life. I discovered that Fashion photography and portraits are what I love because with photography I can exalt the beauty, the emotion and I can express what I have to do.I hope one day I will work for a magazine or a model agency
Who is your inspiration in life Irene? How do you keep inspired?
My inspiration is my mum. She always says me that I must do what I like to do, to follow my passions and strive to the maximum.
We all make mistakes Irene; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Photographer; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
No, fortunately, I had no problems with colleagues
Irene, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Photographer, how do you go about prioritising your clients’ needs?
With a large number of clients I organise all before, time, price and there're no distinctions to give priority
Please tell us, Irene, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Photographer?
To be a photographer means to spend money to have the equipment and I am joung so I saved money that could be spent in new clothes or new shoes and I invested that money in my equipment.
Irene, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
I remember when my friends didn't believe in what I do, but I did not give up, and when I started working in this field they understood me, they finally saw what I do, and now they think that a dream could never be abandoned.
Irene, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Photographer. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
The proudest moment of my career was when I worked for a famous Italian blog â€˜Isa e Chiaâ€™ in their party with VIPs and stars.
Irene, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
Every day you must have a creative idea, is amazing because your fantasy in always active. Is not difficult for me, I find new ideas just looking around me.For example, that time when I choose to represent the beauty of the sea when It finds the color of the human eyes and I choose a model that has the same color of the ocean.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Photographer?
Be yourself, always. Never give up, if you believe in it, it will happen. Learn learn learn because it will be never enough if you want to be successful
