Sonia Primerano began her photography career in the film and music video industry in 2011. After 4 years as a unit stills and behind the scenes photographer, she decided to venture into wedding, festival, lifestyle and food photography and has been pursuing those passions ever since. She thrives in situations that push her beyond her limits and think creatively, and has also recently started a Youtube channel to pursue expressing herself through video.
I believe that stories are the foundation of life. They connect us and unite us all in our human story. My job is a privilege, an honour, and to be able to make memories last a lifetime for people is the most amazing thing to me.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
When I first began my career, I worked on music video and film sets. Overall, a set can be a stressful environment for all the crew members involved, but I always found a sort of stillness in the chaos, and a way to make others feel more at ease and calm despite the pressures on getting everything done and done right. I can always see the beauty in any situation, and love creating something beautiful with what's given.
