In this episode of The Photography Podcast With Mike Cassidy we hear from long time boudoir and womens photographers Fabiana and Carlo Nicora, perhaps better known as the London based boudoir team of Faby and Carlo.
In their own words...
"Faby is a tomboy with a feminine soul. Faby is a woman, an idealist, a photographer, a beauty lover and a mum. Creative and messy, she sees beauty everywhere and is quite stubborn (it runs in the family!). Constantly battling with her curly hair and with the mirror, she decided that she wants to give women their confidence back. With her pictures and much much more. Carlo is a geek with a gentle soul. Decisive and opinionated, he balances his strength as a leader with his almost feminine sensitivity. He loves computer, coffee and definitively challenges. He is doer. He organises Faby and her creative mess. He always battles with his hair and does not want to sleep. Ever. Carlo is able to capture in his pictures people’s souls and their stories like nobody else. We started 12 years ago and we never looked back. Photography is our passion. We believe that boudoir photography empowers women. Removing clothes allows women's vulnerability to shine through in all its authentic beauty for them to see, cherish and embrace. For us Boudoir is a path to self confidence."
Faby and Carlo are rare photographers that understand that boudoir photography is much more than just a camera and a website.
