Artist Portraits for Art Exhibition Incontri
It was real fun to photograph four artists and all of them utilize different media to express their art. I think artists are the most playful, they were like children in my studio. I photograph babies and young children and babies every week, so I’m well trained.
I often get the compliments, “Amanda, you are very patient.” Yes, I am and I think playing is a way of life, the way we learn new things, the way we live, laugh and have fun.
Here are some “Behind the Scene” photos when we were having the photo shoot.
Getting their makeup done.
They were curious about how makeup artist Martina and I work together. We were adjusting the makeup 🙂
When I photograph another photographer, I often got photos taken also. XD That was Enzo photographing me.
Discussions with Enzo about photography while shooting.
The artists managed to find toys in my studio to play with while I was shooting. They were just like children, very playful and fun to be with.
Photographing Josette, this was the second time I photographed her. She is beautiful as usual. And the guys managed to make her smile all the time.
Shooting and giving instructions for posing.
Thanks Enzo for the lovely photos of me shooting.

It was a pleasure to photograph artists. These four artists each everyone has their own unique work.
