Meet Photographer Alexis Zernescu Hometown: Bucharest, Romania How did you get started? Tell us a little about yourself. At the age of 30 I’ve decided to reinvent myself and put all my knowledge and passion into practice and become an entrepreneur. I’ve already had a communication and a photographic background, a professional camera, a few lenses and a great motivation to succeed. I’ve started photographing friends, friends’ colleagues and then clients begin to show up. I’ve never settled for the knowledge I’ve already acquired, I always try to learn more and improve through reading and masterclasses. In fact, in this business, if you do not stay informed about new trends and technologies, you will become uninteresting and will be left behind. I am specialized in photographing women mostly and I love to shoot fashion, portraits and boudoir sessions. I love the human body, the expressivity and attitude that it communicates through photographs. For me, it is very important the relationship I build with the people I come in contact with: collaborators, models and particularly clients, that’s why I try to offer them a special and pleasant experience each time we meet for a shoot. Through the years, I have gathered a very solid team of creatives with whom I do almost all of my photo sessions and which helps me put my fearless ideas into practice. Three adjectives to describe yourself. I define myself as empathic, perfectionist and open-minded, traits that help me understand better others and deal with new challenges of the everyday life.
What do you enjoy the most about photography? Working with different personalities and making women regain trust in their natural beauty and imperfect, but sexy bodies. What do you not enjoy about photography? The many pounds of equipment that we have to carry with us when we go to various important photo sessions. Favorite color? Each season a like a different color, this summer I’m in love with magenta. Favorite food/drink? Watermelon at every hour of the day, in every combination. What person, living or dead, would you love to photograph? Tom Ford, who is the symbol of absolute masculinity, attitude and style and also a great photographer. What country would you love to shoot in? On my must do list, it’s not a country, but a place I would love to shoot in – a lavender field. What is your idea of perfect happiness? Travel around the world and making money of it. Your zodiac sign? It’s the sign that loves people and freedom – Aquarius. What’s your favorite quote? “Don’t compare yourself to others, compare yourself to the person of yesterday.”
Dream vacation you would like to take (or have taken)? A cruise ship in the tropical islands is what I would call a dream holiday. If you had the opportunity to meet any photographer, living or dead, who would it be? I would love to meet and watch Annie Leibovitz working, because she is a legend in the field, that knows how to manage difficult celebrities and make art, creating beautiful and engaging stories in her photographs. Favorite movie? Inception – a fascinating movie about human mind with amazing special effects. What was the last picture you took with your phone? Before leaving the hotel in Kavala, Greece, I’ve took one last panorama of the city, that was just waking up. It was the last day of our adventurous summer vacation. Last book you read? The Nature of Emotion – Fundamental Questions by Paul Ekman Anything else you want the readers to know about you. My team and I are preparing a new fashion project based on the Fifty Shades series. It will be all about sensuality and passion behind closed doors… Website www.zalexisphoto.com/ Follow Alexis on Social Media IG: @@zalexis_photo Pinterest: https://ro.pinterest.com/ 9 zalexisphoto/ SALYSÉ AUGUST 2017

SALYSÉ Magazine is a photography magazine, featuring beauty, fashion, and conceptual art editorials. We do not seek to define beauty with one narrow idea, but with myriad viewpoints. Vintage is right next to emerging designers, who are right next to established designers. We are looking for creatives who push the envelope, take chances, and disregard the status quo. SALYSÉ Magazine is about sophistication, authenticity, with a touch of eccentricity. ---------FOLLOW https://instagram.com/salysemagazine/ LIKE https://www.facebook.com/salysemagazine SUBSCRIBE http://issuu.com/salysemagazine PURCHASE http://www.magcloud.com ---------Not just a magazine— a movement! www.salyse.com © SALYSE, LLC All rights reserved.
