Claudio Cantadori nous présente son livre : (interview réalisée en anglais – voir traduction FR ci-dessous)

WeLovePhoto – Could you tell us more about you as a photographer and your style: what’s mia1your background in photography? When did you start and why? Who are the photographers who inspire you the most? What specific material did you use for this photo set?

I was born and live in Parma, Italy. I started taking pictures when I was 12 years old. My first camera was a birthday gift, a « Bencini Comet II « . After few years I had it, I fell in love with photography. When I still was a student, I was already working during the summer and this work allowed me to buy a reflex Canon and all the instruments to print and develop my pictures at home. Then the university came, followed by my work, four sons and a country house. I didn’t have enough time for photography anymore and I didn’t have neither money!

Now i’m a 61 years old pediatrician. Children are already adults and my work gives me the best satisfaction i could ever expect; Consequently, i decided to come back to my first love and i gave vent to repressed desires.

Right now, I have a professional Nikon equipment: D700 and D800, 14-24mm, 24-70mm, 70-200mm, 300mm, 200-400mm, 500mm, 50mm, 85mm, two teleconverters, two tripod Gitzo with Arca Swiss head, Lee filters, Wimberley Sidekick. During all my life, I was keen on wildlife, architecture and design. My way to photograph things is based on the union of all these interests: I’m looking for simple shots with unpredominant landscapes. My aim is to capture the essence and personality of the photographed subject, it does not matter if it is a person, an animal or a landscape. To obtain the right balance, I’m using photo editing softwares as Photoshop, Lightroom and Silver Efex Pro. With these programs I change lights equilibrium, shadows and I use cropping technique. I think there are several types of photographic art: one is to photograph and don’t retouch the imagine, the other one is to partially fix the shot. The retouch of the photography helps the photographer to better represent the picture’s message: the initial shot is just a base on which the photographer has to build the final imagine. That’s what I love to do. Above all, I admire wildlife photographers. Moreover, among them, I prefer those who are looking for the design purity: Nick Brandt is my favorite but I also like Stefano Unterthiner, Marsel van Oosten and Vincent Munier.

Je suis né et je vis à Parme , en Italie. J’ai commencé à prendre des photos quand j’avais 12 ans. Mon premier appareil était un cadeau d’anniversaire, un  » Bencini Comet II  » . Après quelques années avec cet appareil, je suis tombé amoureux de la photographie. Quand j’étais encore étudiant, je travaillais déjà pendant l’été et ce travail m’a permis d’acheter un reflex Canon et tout le matériel pour imprimer et développer mes photos chez moi. Ensuite, l’université est venu, suivi par mon travail, quatre fils et une maison de campagne . Je n’ai plus eu assez de temps pour la photographie ni assez d’argent !
Maintenant, je suis un pédiatre de 61 ans. 
Les enfants sont déjà adultes et mon travail me donne la plus grande satisfaction que je n’aurais pu espérée ; Par conséquent , j’ai décidé de revenir à mon premier amour et j’ai donné libre cours à des désirs refoulés.
En ce moment , j’ai un matériel professionnel Nikon : D700 et D800, 14 -24mm , 24-70mm , 70-200mm , 300mm, 200 -400mm , 500mm , 50mm, 85mm , deux téléconverteurs , deux trépieds Gitzo avec tête Arca  Suisse, filtres Lee, Sidekick de Wimberley .
Pendant toute ma vie, je me suis intéressé à la faune , l’architecture et le design. Ma façon de photographier des choses est fondée sur l’union de tous ces centres d’intérêts : Je suis à la recherche de shootings simples de paysages non prédominants. 
Mon but est de capturer l’essence et la personnalité du sujet photographié , ce n’est pas grave si c’est une personne , un animal ou un paysage. Pour obtenir le bon équilibre , j’utilise des logiciels de retouche photo comme Photoshop, Lightroom et Silver Efex Pro. Avec ces programmes, je change l’équilibre de la lumière, les ombres et j’utilise la technique de cropping. Je pense qu’il ya plusieurs types d’art photographique : l’une est de photographier et de ne pas retoucher l’ image , l’autre est de fixer partiellement le déclencheur. La retouche photo permet au photographe de mieux représenter le message de la photo : le déclenchement initial est juste une base sur laquelle le photographe doit construire l’image finale. C’est ce que j’aime faire .
Par-dessus tout , j’admire les photographes animaliers . En outre, parmi eux, je préfère ceux qui sont à la recherche de la pureté du design : Nick Brandt est mon préféré mais j’aime aussi Stefano Unterthiner , Marsel van Oosten et Vincent Munier .

WeLovePhoto – What’s the inspiration behind the photo set in your book: why did you start this project? What message did you want to convey? What inspired you?

Earthlings” comes from the love for beautiful nature surrounding us and the respect for animals that inhabit this earth like us. Also animals are terrestrial. When I was close to them, I understood that they are also living of love and feelings; their behaviour is premordial but they have all the typical human feelings. I hope this mood and the love of nature are coming from photographies contained in my book. When I went to Africa I did’nt have a clear idea of photographic project, but in the moment I got there, I understood what was the project and what was the message to be spread. Definitely, I was influenced by the art of Nick Brandt and the diligence of his “Big Life Foundation”.

« Earthlings » vient de l’amour pour la belle nature qui nous entoure et le respect des animaux qui peuplent cette terre comme nous. Les animaux sont également terrestres. En étant proche d’eux, j’ai compris qu’ils vivent aussi de l’amour et des sentiments; leur comportement est primordial mais ils ont tous les sentiments humains typiques. J’espère que cet état d’esprit et l’amour de la nature sont transmis au travers de mes photographies contenues dans mon livre. Quand je suis allé en Afrique, je n’avais pas une idée claire du projet photographique, mais au moment où je suis arrivé, j’ai compris quel était le projet et quel était le message à diffuser. J’ai été certainement influencé par l’art de Nick Brandt et la diligence de sa fondation «Big Life».

WeLovePhoto – Could you tell us about your experience publishing books? What criteria did you use to select pictures and define the structure, etc.? Why self-publishing? What steps would you recommend others follow when creating a new book?

I think Blurb is currently the best way to produce and publish online books: the service is really amazing and every time you just want to buy a lot of books. I hope in the future we can improve the color matching between the photographic project on our computer and the real printed material: even following the online advices and the « Blurb Color Management », color casts not provided may appear in the print. I solved the problem by ordering a lot of prints with different dominant colors until I got the desired effect! I think Blurb should provide test prints to see before the publication of the entire book.

Je pense que Blurb est actuellement la meilleure façon de produire et de publier des livres en ligne: le service est vraiment incroyable et chaque fois vous voulez juste acheter beaucoup de livres. J’espère que dans l’avenir, nous pourrons améliorer le contraste des couleurs entre le projet photographique sur notre ordinateur et le matériel imprimé réel: même en suivant les conseils en ligne et la «Gestion des couleurs de Blurb », il peut y avoir des couleurs non reproduites dans le print. J’ai résolu le problème en commandant un grand nombre de tirages avec différentes couleurs dominantes jusqu’à ce que  j’ai eu l’effet désiré! Je pense que Blurb devrait fournir des impressions testspour voir avant la publication de l’intégralité du livre.

WeLovePhoto – What are your next steps: do you have any future photography or publishing projects in the pipeline?

At the moment I’m not thinking about a new accurate photographic project: I’m probably going to develop in colors some of the “Earthlings” book’s photos.. By 2014 I hope to go to Amboseli National Park, Kenya, in order to continue the photographic story started now.  I want to focus on portraits of elephants during the dry season: I think might be photographs of great visual impact, iconographics and I really think they are images that remind us of the beginning of our life on earth. »

Pour le moment je ne pense pas à un nouveau projet photographique précis: je vais probablement développer en couleurs certaines photos de mon livre « Earthlings » .. En 2014 j’espère aller au parc national d’Amboseli, au Kenya, afin de continuer l’histoire photographique démarrée à présent.
Je veux me concentrer sur les portraits d’éléphants pendant la saison sèche: Je pense peut-être à des photographies de grand impact visuel, iconographiques et je suis convaincu que ce sont des images qui nous rappellent le début de notre vie sur terre « .
