What type of artist are you?
I try to capture the essence and the humanity of a moment. I focus mainly on taking pictures using natural light, and I try to keep it simple and minimalistic. However, I am able to provide a wide range of photography services to meet the clients photography requirements.
What forms of art do you specialize in?
I specialise in natural light, by the aid of reflectors, and portraits, mainly because humans are such interesting and diverse subjects. I love getting to know a person as we work. I also enjoy taking photographs of the natural world, which is where I find most of my inspiration.
Is art a passion or a Job?
Art is definitely not a job for me. I can lose hours working on my photography. Some aspects are so creative (design and mood boards), others are so technical (how the camera works and image processing) and I get to work with lots of different and interesting people.
Can you tell us about your favourite famous artist
My inspiration is the late Peter Lindbergh. He worked with various artists and managed to make them feel grounded, comfortable and beautiful. His black and white images are a favourite of mine, and how he manages to capture the most simple but beautiful images.
Can you explain the term artist vs poet?
An artist is anyone who creates. It can be a chef, painter, pianist, songwriter, photographer, writer, architect, interior designer, software developer, and so much more. A poet is a specific artist. A poet creates a world and a feeling with words and rhythm.
