Miami's Finest Topfotograaf: Alex Manfredini (foto's NSFW)

We kunnen er niet om heen. Dennis Black Magic is back en haalt constant de media. Is het geen aankondiging van een nieuwe naaktkalender dan is het wel een onderonsje met Jan Verheyen op de set van FC De Kampioenen, of is het een Irish Coffee klets met Jan Eelen, de man achter ‘In de Gloria’, ‘Het Eiland’ of ‘Callboys’, oftewel één van de beste TV-momenten van afgelopen 15 jaar. En niet om een stunt verlegen doet hij het vandaag gewoon opnieuw! Hij haalt de bekende modefotograaf Alex Manfredini uit Miami, die o.a. de shoot “50 shades of grey” op zijn naam heeft staan, van 18 tot 22 augustus gewoon naar België om één bekende en twee nieuwe gezichten in de modewereld te fotograferen. Verder zal Alex ook de centrale gast zijn op zaterdag 19 augustus tijdens de Fashion Industry party Marquee Herent. Een party die gehouden wordt ter ere van zijn bezoek. Wij trokken onze stoute schoenen aan en wilden alvast meer weten over deze straffe kerel. Wie wil er niet meer weten over een leven tussen mooie dames, wuivende palmbomen en zwoele stranden? Wij zijn alvast de volgende woorden van Will Smith nooit vergeten…’Yo I heard the rain storms ain’t nuttin’ to mess wit, But I can’t feel a drip on the strip, its a trip. Ladies half dressed, fully equipped,
And they be screamin’ out “Jens, we loved your last…!” Ok, dat laatste was gedroomd…over naar Alex…

Alex, tell us a little bit of yourself?
Dirty Mind. Caring Soul. Good Heart. Smart Ass. Gifted Talent. Organic Sinner. I Never said I’m Perfect.

We neither! How long have you been a photographer?
Since a kid – very long time ago- I always loved graphic arts. I started in 1994 as a digital artist and by 1996 I became a full time photographer.

Which production were you most proud of?
I consider the trigger of my glamour photography career the production of the 1997 Sexy Calendar of Actress Sofia Vergara. Since then my professional has changed to slowly build what I’m today

Sofia Vergara? She must be the hottest 44-years old woman we know! For those they don’t know who she is…a 12,8 million followed Instagram account will tell you more!

My ultimate Topmodel to shoot whith? My dream is to discover the next one with my camera!

 

But(t) back to business…Alex, what is the biggest compliment you have ever received?
I really feel blessed for lots of compliments and love received by clients and fans. People that find me, my lifestyle, and of course my work, as a source of inspiration to always move forward.

Great words! Which topmodel is your ultimate dream to work with?
I’m happy to had the opportunity to work with lots of Playmates and Celebrities. My goal is not to shoot the top model. My dream is to discover the next one with my camera.

If you need to build a professional portfolio, hire and pay a good photographer to do it!

 

Be the first! Nice one! What about the shoots! What do you like most…classy nude, boudoir or fashion shoots?
Obviously, my comfort zone is the nude. But I love to produce with my crew avant-garde fashion shoots as well as tell the story when shooting erotic boudoir.

Can you give our models some advice to make it in the US?
Prepare you professionally and believe in yourself. Show off why you are unique. Respect it as a full time job and never work for free. US is a very competitive market. If you need to build a professional portfolio, hire and pay a good photographer to do it. Don’t build your image through mediocre images or you will only get mediocre gigs.

Make money in NY and live in Miami!

That’s what we call advice! Back to our intro…I’ve been there once but for those who haven’t been there…how is life in Miami?
I LOVE Miami. Its awesome. Great weather, strategically located for travel, very cool and nice city,  friendly people, great food, fun lifestyle and with a cosmopolitan culture. I moved to Miami in 1994 to be there for a couple of years and  was hooked for its magic. Now i don’t want to move from my block. After a week of been in another city I cant wait to return home.

I have friends in L.A, Miami and NY and they all say the same about their city? What do you think? L.A., Miami or NY? Why?
Make money in NY and live in Miami.

Life goals! What about luxury? What does it mean for you?
Luxury is a lifestyle more than a brand. Is the way that you pamper yourself more than what you show off.  Experience how you enhance your senses more than accumulate expensive things.

Do You have a wife? Isn’t it difficult for her when she knows you’re always surrounded by beautiful ladies?
Yes I have the same wife for more than 35 years and she is very comfortable with it. Sandra is my partner as well as the head makeup artist and hair stylist of my studio, and we have been working together in this business for more than 20 years. We take our profession seriously and with the highest respect to make it comfortable to all of us.

Respect! What are your favorite places to you out, go dine or have drinks?
I love to be outdoor. Love to hangout at rooftop terraces and pool parties, or chill with an intimate dinner by the sea. My favorite place to relax is by the beach or sailing.

What do you expect about your trip to Belgium?
Meet lot of new good friends, and have a wonderful time doing what I love the most.

What are your ambitions? What would you like to achieve in the future? 
I’m a happy puppy. I want to live 100 years more being healthy and enjoying my life the same way I’m doing now. I see myself in the future very active socially, dedicated more to publishing my lifetime work and traveling doing exhibitions.

Before we go…we have some nasty, dirty, good heart and smart ass quickies for you…

Damn, you got us here! Polaroid or Digital?
I still have and love my Horseman. Today I consider film as an craftwork. But Digital is the way to do business.

My favorite Model is…
Tuft question. But in a balance of professionalism, gorgeous beauty, easy to work with, and with a personal “click” that makes everything more easy, I’ll say Nella Miartusova.

My favorite Ride is…
My mind

My favorite Quote is
“Love the life you live, Live the life you love”

Thank you Alex for the time you have spend to do this really inspiring interview! We’ll definitely come to Herent when you’re visiting Belgium.
