Gettin’ Air With Reebok

September 19, 2013 Caterina Bernardi

One of my favourite things is to make people jump in pictures. So an assignment from Reebok featuring/highlighting the sole of the their new line of kid’s shoes was perfect for me. It was so fun to shoot active kids that have boundless energy. Agency: Giant in San Francisco.

Lofoten Series

May 2, 2012 Caterina Bernardi

Lofoten is an archipelago north of the arctic circle in Norway. It truly a stunning place to visit and it seems that at every turn you to stop in awe and admire the view. Traveling there in July when the sun slightly dips into the sea around midnight and raises again around 2-3 am., leaves many hours of the day to explore the islands. Gustav Vigeland, a famous Norwegian sculptor once said;” you have not seen Norway until you have been to Lofoten,” and this is what made travel up north to discover this natural marvel.

Selected to be in Communication Arts Photo Annual 2011

“After a 3 hour hike up and along a steep mountain I reached “Kjeragbolten,” a boulder wedged in a mountain crevasse.  Kjeragbolten is located on the west coast of Norway at the very beginning of a fjord called “Lysfjorden,” close to Stavanger.  Just below the boulder is a nerve-wracking 1000 meter drop straight  down into the fjord.  The subject of the photograph, a young adventurer from Stavanger, did all sorts of acrobatic moves in the rain, jumping up and down on the boulder as if he was on solid ground. It was a perfect moment to capture the dramatic scenery with his fearless moves, a surreal moment that lasted a fraction of a second. The work was done for an adventurous lifestyle request by Getty Images.”

 

 

“A lot of the artistry that happens in an image nowadays is done I post production, which gives you an opportunity to create layers to further extend the story telling, the mood and the colour palette; to take an image in a direction beyond the naked “negative.”  For much of my post-production, Adam Moore, a retouching artist whose company Sugar Digital provides much of the post-production for my work, infuses the images with a special look and feel, often elevating a simple moment frozen in time with a heightened sense of special timelessness.  His work on the image with Kjeragbolten reflects a sensory duality, the fragility and danger of a man in the elements coupled with this man’s self-awareness and defiance of this position.  Moments like these, which offer a contrast in a moment, are images I feel that can have a strong impact on the viewer.”

 

 

International Color Awards | Photography Masters Cup Winner 2010

September 15, 2011 Caterina Bernardi

 The Samba that the world knows is through the Brazilian Carnival, punctuated by spectacular performances overflowing with glitz and feathers and costumes. Samba has its roots in Brazil via the West African slave trade; a dance that started in the favelas of Bahia and Rio de Janeiro has now become an icon of Brazilian national identity.

 

But Samba is so much more complex. In Brazil people are practically born dancing and Samba is such a vital part of the culture. It can be energetic, sophisticated and also sad. I wanted to capture a different side in a quiet, calm and beautiful moment.
