ModelManagement : How did you find out your talent and decided to become a photographer?
Vince Martinelli: Being a pretty humble person I would not talk about talent, I would say that I was always intrigued by photography, to capture a moment and expression an ambiance and I’d say that I’m simply extremely passionate about photography.
MM: Where do you usually get your inspiration from?
VM: I do not have many books about photography and I normally never take any inspiration from other photographers or try to “copy” ! I take my inspiration from people and my personal life experience.
Each person has its own and unique personality and when you do portrait and people photography that is pretty much challenging, interesting and enriching.
MM: Why do you have special interest in black & white art photography?
VM: I prefer black & white photography because I think that color distracts the viewer from the emotion of the photo. B&W gives a less realistic feel to the picture and I really like to play with that in postproduction !
MM: A photo shoot that has made deep impression on you?
VM: Every shooting is a new challenge and a new experience. As already stated, each person has its unique personality, which makes people photography so fascinating.
MM: How do you scout models for your shoots?
VM: Now that I’m on ModelManagement, I will probably scout through this unique site but I’ve been scouting a lot via social media.
MM: How does social media influence in your work? Do you use social media to get contacts?
VM: I’ve been published 4 times in the USA through social media contact and I do use social media to get contacts indeed !
MM: What advantages do you find on having a Premium Pro profile on ModelManagement.com?
VM: ModelManagement is a huge and very professional organization that puts the right people together. It’s easy to get in touch with very specific people that someone is looking for via ModelManagement.
