Interview: Photographer Luiza Lipińska (Poland)
Can you tell us a little about you?
I am a photographer skilled in portrait, lifestyle, fashion and sensual photography, based in Warsaw, Poland.
How and when did you get into photography?
I have always been an artistic soul, as a kid i loved to draw/sketch. Unfortunately reality forced me to chose other way of living for a long time but now I am doing what I really love since about 3 years (which is photographing obviously). I quitted my regular office job to become a freelancer photographer.
What does photography mean to you?
Photography is basically the air I breathe. My friends and family laugh cause everywhere i go i see pictures and i photograph everything like an Asian tourist (no offense of course). :-)
Photography lets me express myself through the visuals.
Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.
I shoot people! This is what I love the most, it took me a while to define myself but now I cant imagine my job or even my life without portraiting people (especially women). I love it when i can catch emotions on their faces and add a bit of myself in postproduction.
Where do you get inspiration from?
I basically get inspiration from everything my eyes can see, I love hanging around the city, exploring it. I love to assosiate with other artists as well, not only photographers but painters, make up artists etc.
Think you in advance what you want in the picture?
I would love to run my own studio, this is the plan!
Studio, on location or both?
Both i guess.
Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?
Paid professional passionate.
What has been your most memorable session and why?
I guess I am still looking forward to it.
What has been the biggest source of inspiration in your work?
People i photograph are my biggest inspiration.
Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?
Canon. I used to be in love with 85mm 1.8 but i switched to 50mm 1.4 and i cant put it down.
What is one piece of advice you would like to offer a new photographer looking to start their own business?
Keep practicing daily, don’t be afraid of your ideas and your imagination. You gonna move the mountains soon!
What do you think of our new magazine?
I find it very fresh and inspiring. Im glad there is a magazine like this to promote talented people.
