Behind the camera: Sebastian Fissore

Who are you? Sébastian Fissore, I’m an industrial designer, cultural manager and photographer based in Córdoba, Argentina. I write and photograph for virtual cultural sites and a local Rock Magazine. I think I’m a gig-photographer because I am a frustrated musician.

How did you get started? Eight years ago, when I finished college my parents gave me my first camera. After a couple of years I got a DSLR, do some workshops and the opportunity arose to make the first coverage of a local radio station. After several gigs I meet people from different media have given me the opportunity to photograph and see many national and international bands that pass through the city.

What’s in the bag?

  • I have a Kata bag with:
  • Canon T2i w/battery grip
  • EF-S 18-55mm IS II
  • EF 50mm f/1.8 II
  • EF-S 55-250mm IS
  • Tamron SP AF 28-75 f/2.8 XR Di LD.
  • A little notebook and a pencil.

Which photographers do you admire? Too many to name, but any photographer who is able to generate some feeling with your photos is worthy of my admiration.

Your top 3 tips for music photographers?

  • Get a 50 mm lens
  • Respect the other photographers, they are working too
  • Have fun and enjoy each gig

My favourite shot is? One of Tony Levin (Stickmen) in Teatro Libertador San Martin, might not be a good quality image but I really like how the light highlights the silhouette.

How can we find out more about you and find more of your work?

    Soy la heredera de su primer cámara. Una realidad a la que no hay forma de rendirle honores. La cámara no hace al fotógrafo. Hermosas fotografías las de Sebastián Fissore. Linda nota!
