Who are you, where are you from, what do you do?
I’m Maurizio from Mary & Maurizio - Quattro Studio Photography. We’re husband and wife duo of photographers from Italy.
Best thing about living in Italy?
Food. Of course. Good food everywhere.
One true stereotype about Italians?
Italian people love the food. That’s true.
Who is influencing your photography these days?
I’m really enjoying the work of Nirav Patel, I love how he manages the light and his portraits are so intense. Sometimes I simply get lost on his Instagram account.
Then, I’m really lucky because now I can find some his best work here on Kolla (thank you guys, Christmas is coming).
I’m always in search of how to render the best colours in a picture.Maurizio Palumbo
Describe the last photograph you printed and hung.
My last print was a photo that I’ve done in Venice Beach of a cyan house with a red old classic car parked inside. I’m in love with every kind of house and classic car so so it’s a must on a wall in my studio.
What is one thing you're obsessed with right now?
Colours. I’m always in search of how to render the best colours in a picture. Every time I stop in front of my computer I can't avoid to work on my own edition presets, I’m really obsessed about this right now.
But I also need to talk about Hawaiian music. Have you ever tried to work with instrumental Hawaiian music on background? It’s so relaxing.
