Alright, now for the interview! Firstly Lucio, how would you best describe yourself?
Photographer

Our readers would love to get to know you more Lucio. Tell us about yourself, why you are passionate about what you do, and your journey so far.
We're a berlin based Italian photo duo. Partners in work and life, we love to work with fashion, portraits and art projects.

Would you like to complete our full Editorial interview or skip straight to uploading your photos?
Keep interviewing me!

What are your goals and how do you see yourself progressing in the field Lucio?
We would love to show our work to more and more people. We're now working on a photobook project.

How do you communicate with people Lucio? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements?
Well I'd say we're pretty friendly and, when possible, we try to get as close as we can to our client's requests

If you had to do it over again, what would you change Lucio?
I think we would both try much more to put the accent on our homeland, Sardinia. It has so much potential! But hey, it's not too late.

Who is your hero Lucio, and how have they helped you get to where you are?
I wouldn't talk about heroes. I would talk about inspirations. Lately, we're re-discovering the Italian heritage more and more. I'm thinking about great registers from the past; everything was so inspiring and experimental.

How important are creative education courses Lucio? Have you taken any, and did you find them useful?
We both took creative courses, and we would suggest to anyone who wants to start: even if you wanna be extremely experimental, underground, etc., you need a base. You need to know the past. 

Do you have any tips for someone who is just starting out in the industry?
Just said it before
