[Albertine in Antique Dress (self portrait)]

Albertine is from in Milan, Italy. She has been a Suicide Girl and a SG Photographer since 2004 and has shot more than 200 sets!

How did you first get involved with SuicideGirls?

An old friend of mine, Aiki, was on the site. I was at the time studying photography and specifically was into a self portrait project, so I did a test shoot of myself for the site and the set was bought!



What’s your background photography-wise?

I studied photography in Italy at IED and then took a masters degree at SVA in NY.



What was the first photo you had published?

It was a picture for an Italian fashion magazine (“D”) that I shot while I was in NY: it was a big cardboard box sitting on a doorstep and you could see the hand of a girl trying to get out from one corner, as if the girl had been delivered to someone.

How would you describe your style?

This is a hard one, as I am constantly in conflict with myself wondering if I even HAVE a style. Generally, I like my models to feel comfortable. I like them to feel hot/pretty. For editorial work I love using references in the world of comics/ movies/illustration. I like it when an image triggers imagination.



What gear do you use?

I generally shoot with a Nikon D700, my lighting equipment depends on the job and the situation.



How important is Photoshop in your final images?

If I shot digital is very important, as I think that completely unprocessed digital images aren’t appealing: I think about Photoshop as if it was a digital darkroom, and the raw digital file a film negative.



What gives you ideas and inspires you to create such amazing sets?

My style as far as SG shoots has changed a lot throughout the years. My sets used to be very themed, as I liked the idea of freeing the imagination of the model and the concept of playing a role/character. Nowadays I try to be as minimalistic as I can, and portray each model’s peculiar way of being sexy.

What is your favorite image?

There are so many that I love!

Tell us why it’s your fave and how you achieved it?

I guess that my favorite shoots of all times are the ones I did with Manko: I think we grew up together as friends and artists, and we always create something that is unique, and also never boring. I like to think of her as my muse.




Is there anybody or anything you would love to photograph that you haven’t? (And tell us why)

I want to photograph tons and tons more. I am very intrigued about shooting more artists. I have a craving for faces that can communicate experiences, love and struggles, faces that have sparkles in their eyes!
