29 out, 2016
My name is Maurice Sinclair and i am 24 years old. I was born in Switzerland and also raised in Peru, so as a kid I traveled a lot and even back then I love to capture everything on my way.
Style, Influences and Inspirations
I always loved photography and to capture life which is my motto, so I started modeling as well and got more into the fashion area and started taking pictures of my roomates.
I did shoots after shoots trying to capture those special moments, combining them and creating something new with art and fashion.
I find my inspiration on the streets or everywhere when I see something that catches up my attention.
Digital era really helped the photographers?
Well, yes and no, quality is easier to achive with the digital era, but its not necesarly better. The limits are pushed far away. so it is easier to create and way faster than before.
But I´ve learned photography the old shool way to see how it really works so i can exactly apply it to my current work, which is digital. I think this is really important because nowadays everybody with a camera think can be a photographer.
Capturing the perfect moment and the cool partnership with models
Yes, i love that feeling, it feels like u´ve captured the whole moment and can save it forever on a picture.
Its a nice feeling to see your work on their portfólios and make connection and friends all over the world. I feel proud for them.
Hmm well… on all my shoots funny moments happens. Once a model came with her mother because she was super young. Her mother loved the camera and always wanted to be in front of the cam, so at the end I had more pictures of her than the model haha.
Top cool places for a shooting
Chinatown, New York: I Love that vibe!
Peru: the landscapes are amazing,
Paris: the amazing old city
Milan: so colorful
Chicago: the music jazz district, the whole vibe and mood there is amazing
I always work on my own current projects and with models at he same time so its hard to say a specific one, but i just came back from New York after 2 months and i loved the models and attidute there.
Black and White Picture with the girl and the boy with the cigarette on the bed is one of my recent ones. Follow me for cool projects coming soon.
