Alfredo Cristinziano: Interview

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

Work, practice & dedication, I cannot think of other buzz words right now.

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

After denying it for all these years, I can now say I am an artist

Why do you do what you do?

I guess I am trying to make people feel something, show the way I see things and mostly do what I love for a change.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

I always had a camera with me, I was just not confident enough to actually use it like I wanted. When I started doing portraits is when it hit me. And when I got in the film photography wagon I could hear the angels singing, fell in love immediately.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

I am shy by nature, to overcome this I needed lots of practice and a bit of humor :)

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

Cinema in general inspire me, also some of my favorite actual photographers like Ryan Muirhead, Frank Ockenfels and Jan Scholz.

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

I made the general mistake of underestimating myself and not think I could actually do this, you have to at least go out and try.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

This is very unclear to me, I have no idea where I will end up in a couple of years, but I will not stop shooting and will continue to explore what I love to do.

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

As generic as it may sound, believe in yourself, it’s a start. Then practice and practice, don`t wait for anyone to hand it to you on a silver platter, there is no stop to learning. And for “photographers” out there, stop jerking around with gear and finding excuses, just go shoot.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Thanks for reading!
