I love arts in general, meet new people, have a conversation, sit on a coffee and watch the people. I like to do simple things that make my day happier.
Rikko, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Photographer?
I like people who see beyond the basic, people who think differently. I started as a photographer at the university, four years ago.
Who is your inspiration in life Rikko? How do you keep inspired?
I don't have one person in particular, but artists, in general, make me inspired.
We all make mistakes Rikko; 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.
Fortunately, I never had to deal with complicated situations as a photographer. But we never know, tomorrow something can happen, and I think that I will deal with that in a friendly way.
Rikko, 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?
I usually don't treat my client with a difference, I treat them with professionalism. If I can't deliver good work, I don't take it.
Please tell us Rikko, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Photographer?
My priority is always to attend to my clients. Sometimes I have photos to make editions, and I don't have time to do it, so I need to pay something to do this work for me.
Rikko, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
What I as graduated in advertising is my job to persuade people. I try to convince the clients the best for the brand, or the product, they have to think in their clients first as well.
Rikko, 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?
My proudest accomplishment is a campaign in which the client used my photos to publish in outdoors; I loved that sense that my work was going well.
Rikko, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
In general pre-production of an editorial or campaign, we must use creativity, is a job in the team, I like this part of the job.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Photographer?
Just make new photos, and think how you can make it better than last you did.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?
I'm open to meet people from different areas, so please, contact me :)
