We have interviewed Fabrizio Cirulli, photographer and drummer

Who’s Fabrizio Cirulli?
I’m a freelance pro photographer, graphic designer and webmaster, I’ve been working in publishing industry for more than 20 years and, since 2002 I’ve been studying photographic techniques. I’m a teacher in photography courses, I work for some agencies and I have published on monthly magazines such as Vogue Italia, Canon Photo Professional, Digital Camera, and weekly magazines such as Nuovo, published by Cairo Publishers and Mio published by Angelo Aleksik.
Why did you choose jazz photography? Are you only interested in jazz?
I shoot jazz because, as I’m also a musician, more precisely a drummer, it’s the musical genre I feel more comfortable with. The other photo genres I do in my activities are interior photography, food, still life, industrial, book, wedding, portraits, fashion, e-commerce, events and photo reportage.
Would you like to share with us an anecdote about your relationships with jazz musicians?
I can tell you how a friendship between two photographers was born. Everything started in 2007, when I was taking pictures at a concert of the Italuba, led by the Cuban drummer Horacio “El Negro” Hernandez at Pavone Canavese Jazz Festival. While I was shooting, I saw at the other side of the stage another photographer shooting, we were practically the only two photographers that night. At the end of the concert we met and, after introducing ourselves, he asked me if I wanted to meet the musicians and, if so, he would have been glad to introduce them to me. Obviously, I told him yes, and so it was. That photographer was Roberto Cifarelli and, since that day, we have been shooting together so many festivals and we also had an exhibition together in Alba jazz festival in June 2018
What could you suggest to young photographers approaching this art?
To have good shots, you must study the techniques for each type of photo, independently from the fact that you are doing it either for work or as a hobby, otherwise you will be led by your camera and you will go home with poor results. Shoot to have fun, if you’re compelled to, it becomes boring. Expensive equipment helps, but it’s not essential, find a photographer you like and be critical towards yourself.
Which is your favourite gear?
I started to take pictures with Canon film cameras and I have remained faithful to the brand for their versatility, even if I don’t deny I’m also fond of quality medium format cameras such as Hasselblad.
Is there a pic you’d wish you’ve taken?
The one I will shoot tomorrow.
