Interview: Photographer Jennifer Klüpfel (Germany)
Can you tell us a little about you?
My name is Jenni and I am a 26 year old photographer from germany.
How and when did you get into photography?
I started taking pictures when I was a child. I was just roaming around and shoot everything that came across my lens. About three years ago I started taking portraits and I love it every day.
What does photography mean to you?
For me it’s a form of expression as an artist and as a woman. Since I mostly portray women I like to tell the viewer a little story about them, give them a glimpse into their femininity.
Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.
I like to create very feminine and soft portraits with lace undergarment, wavy hair, soft tones and subtle make up.
Where do you get inspiration from?
There are some photographers I really admire like Cara Gutman or Madamilein Photography. I also love to look through instagram and find new ideas.
Think you in advance what you want in the picture?
Not really. I try to get to know the model and then portray her the way I see her.
Studio, on location or both?
Almost exclusively studio.
Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?
A paid professional.
What has been your most memorable session and why?
There was no specific session. In fact, I enjoy almost all of them. Quite often, people you have not met before walk in, you get to know each other, and usually have a great time together. Ideally, at the end of the day, you have found a new friend.
Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?
Canon from the beginning. For my portraits I always use the Canon 50mm f1.8.
What is one piece of advice you would like to offer a new photographer looking to start their own business?
Networking is very important. If you get the chance to work with other photographers or make up artist you should definetely do it.
What do you think of our new magazine?
I really like the idea behind this magazine. As a photographer you are very grateful for being seen as a member of the huge communinty of artists all over the world, especially in times of the internet. So I am very thankful for this chance.
