Interview: Photography Edyta Bruchal (UK)
Tell us something about yourself
What can I say about myself? I'm a happy woman 🙂 Don't try to be better than others, just be yourself! I am trying to be the best version of myself, I am grateful for what I have and who I am. I love photography, it's an amazing opportunity to really SEE another human being!
How and when did you get into photography?
I have started being interested in photography at the age of 15, so pretty early. My first camera was POLAROID. I used to invite my friends over, dress them up and take photos... I loved the final effect 🙂 Photography is close to my heart since I can remember. It's my passion, my oxygen.I am 37 years old today and I believe that I still don't know enough about it. I go with my intuition, my instinct, I fell it more than I think about it. And I believe... it works!
What does photography mean to you?
To me, Photography, is mainly meeting other people. It is my way of expressing my emotions, my inspirations, my fears. It's like a fairy tale, a fantasy world... Taking photos means holding your breath and using all your senses to capture the beauty of the world. I don't use my camera just to show what's in front of me. I like to show people, what's inside, what's beyond ...
Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.
I don't really use one style, I like the change. Because that's life- it's changing constantly. Life is beautiful on so many different levels! An important part of having a photo shoot with me is conversation. I like people feeling comfortable in front of my camera. I love photographing women. I like their delicate, famine side...
Where do you get inspiration from?
I find my inspirations everywhere. In music, people, books, movies... In my heart and imagination...
Think you in advance what you want in the picture?
I usually plan everything ahead but during sessions- it changes. I trust my intuition and I go with the flow
Studio, on location or both?
I can take photos everywhere, I just need good light. The light is the most important element and truth of the Universe!
Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?
It's mainly my hobby and passion. Now- it's my job as well
What has been your most memorable session and why?
I don't have one, exceptional photo shoot. They are all exceptional, different, unique...
What has been the biggest source of inspiration in your work?
My gurus are Peter Lindbergh , Mario Testino, Sonia Szustak...I'm their grates fan and I'm hoping to create as amazing pictures, one day, as they do
Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?
I take photos with canon, I use sigma art 50mm
What is one piece of advice you would like to offer a new photographer looking to start their own business?
Most importantly- don't try to be better than others. Everyone is unique and beautiful and should be proud of that! Love yourself and be proud of who you are
