Interview: Photograpger Kseniya Arhangelova (Poland)

16 Nov 2017

 

Tell us something about yourself.

As you know already, I was born in Buryatia near famous Lake Baikal – the deepest lake in the world. I travel a lot and I’m deeply involved into photography’s world.

 

How and when did you get into photography?

I studied photography in the university in Vilnius. I liked drawing in my childhood. I think that a wish to draw this world turned into digital visualization through the camera.

 

What does photography mean to you?

It’s the way to visualize my imagination. It’s like a process of drawing for me.

 

Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.

It’s not easy to say which style exactly I have. I do what I want and what I feel.

 

Where do you get inspiration from?

From the world around me: nature, music, movies, books, art, people.

 

Think you in advance what you want in the picture?

Real emotions, “naked” soul.

 

Studio, on location or both?

Both, I prefer to work with daylight.

 

Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?

I work as a photojournalist, so, it’s possible to tell that I’m professional ;)

 

What has been the biggest source of inspiration in your work?

Good music, mostly without any words.

 

Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?

Canon. I tried to work with Nikon, but it’s not mine. Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM, Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L.

 

What has been your most memorable session and why?

Last years I rare do any creative projects as a photographer. I collaborate with a narrow circle of models. I remember my very first session with the talented artist of the Belarusian State Circus Veronika Kasperova. Also, I can mention the first shooting with Dennis Osterman from the german band In Strict Confidence. One photo I called “Dark Room” and worked with it several weeks. In 2016 I did a beautiful shooting with the russian actress Anastasiya Richi. We even did some photos in very cold water. I like to work with artists from different spheres. Such people inspire me : )

 

What is one piece of advice you would like to offer a new photographer looking to start their own business?

Today we have too many photographers. Cameras aren’t so expensive, and people can afford to buy them. This profession isn’t rare anymore. Market is full of photographers. To be able to earn money, you should be a good…pr manager of yourself and have some luck. But in any way you can try : )

 

What do you think of our new magazine?

You make good content, guys. Best of luck!
