Born in 1979, Sacha Rovinski, as a present for his eighth birthday, gets a small Super 8 film camera.
This is how everything starts for him...
He discovers that this camera enables him to capture both images and moments onto miles and miles of film, much to his parents’ displeasure.
Between motion pictures and still pictures, there is only a fine line, but he doesn’t cross it yet.At that time, indeed, he enters the conservatory, where he studies for over ten years.
From this decade-long musical training, he becomes all the more conscientious in his work. Above all, he feels that more important than the crucial moment of shutter release is the idea that a photograph also results from a certain rhythm made of colors and shapes.
He feels that a story has to be as harmonious as a concerto.
The first click that he ever hears is one from an old Miranda RE II. This corresponds to his first step into photography.Another crucial step is made as he works with light in theaters. He then discovers in wonder the art of sculpting shadows.Meanwhile, after scientific studies (undergraduate degree in physics), he also studies design and graphic arts, discovers digital retouching and 3D photorealistic modeling. He gets a degree in multimedia conception and production, before becoming a freelance art director (he has worked for – among others – Devarieux Villaret on projects like idTGV, with La Maison on budget like EMI, as well as on the production of 3D photorealistic models for Praquin Agency).
Photography becomes more and more part of his life, to the point where he decides to make it his profession.Beside his own photography, he's working now as retoucher and digital operator all over the world for some of the best photographers.
