John Dowling Interviews Fine Art Photographer June Pascocello

John: What inspires you as an artist?

June: When I was a child I would see people when they are happy, sad, crying, hugging and I would say that’s a great shot! And that’s how it started. The feeling of everything is alive. I capture the moment and that’s what keeps me going.  Feeling people’s love and emotions as you can see in the people I photograph. It’s all about the moment and that’s when I know I got the shot! My interior work it’s like you are living in it you make it your own.

John: What do you mean by “That’s what keeps me going”?

June: The love of photography “ it’s about them the people it opens my heart to be able to capture their moment.

John: Many would think that you should be in front of your camera as often as you are behind it as you are extraordinarily beautiful. Why not on the other side of the camera?

June: Awww thank you! I was asked many times to model. But never felt it was about me” I wanted to capture the beauty being behind the camera.

John: I felt the same way lol but I caved

June: Haha…..Yes, super handsome you are

John: Very kind words thank you June. When did you know that you would turn photography into a career?

June: Right after my mom passed when I was 21” she always said to me why don’t you do photography “ when you take photos it’s a amazing what you capture. It’s like you feel it , it’s like you are there.

John: I’m sorry to hear that you lost your mom at such a young age what happened?

June: She had thyroid cancer: she had a little lump on her neck 24 years bf she passed and needed to remove it but she didn’t want to leave her kids and left it alone until it 24 years later. She would have still been here if she took care of it then. We were so close I feel her every day.
