Photographer Interview: Enrica Brescia

Scrolling through my Flickr feed every day, I know an Enrica Brescia photo when I see one. Lush, rich, and always fashionable.

I was first attracted to Enrica’s work in the Canon EOS M group on Flickr. New to the camera, I wanted to see what others were doing with it. And Enrica’s photos, often paired with EF lenses, caught my eye. Now she’s one of my favorite portrait photographers.

Who are you and what do you do?

I am an Italian photographer based in Rome. I’m a fashion and portrait photographer.

How did you get started in photography?

I started to get into photography at the age of 15. I’ve always had a huge passion for art, particularly photography.

What do you like about your photography? 

With my photography, I like the atmosphere that I can attribute to my shots.

Your work includes people, still life, landscapes – and it’s all so beautiful and rich. Where do you get inspiration for your style/ideas?

I take my inspiration from photography books and from the big fashion photographers from the history of photography.

What kind of themes do you explore with your work?

No themes specifically, I try to capture the souls of people.

Any upcoming projects or shoots you’re working on?

Many, but I can’t reveal anything 😉
