Interview: Photographer Assaf Lazar (Israël)

15 Sep 2018

Can you tell us a little about you?

My name is Assaf Lazar, I am 46 years  old, married and have 3 children.

 

How and when did you get into photography?

I began photography about 10 years ago as a hobby, I bought a very old camera, Olympus E-330 and tow lenses. And start shooting everything.

 

What does photography mean to you?

Over time, photography has become an integral part of my life, Everything I see is translated in my head almost immediately into a picture.

 

Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.

I take pictures of beauty and fashion, but my greatest love is artistic photography and artistic nudity.

 

Think you in advance what you want in the picture?

In artistic photography, I plan the pictures in advance according to the location, the light and according to the model with which I work with. There are pictures I planned to photograph and I thought about them for a few months until I formulated the full idea of the concept, the location and how the picture will look at the end.

 

Studio, on location or both? 

I really like to shoot outdoors, especially in the summer. But recently I started investing more time in studio photography.

 

Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?

In the last year I have been working as a professional photographer and only doing photography.

 

What has been your most memorable session and why?

The photo session that influenced me the most was a few years ago when a group on Facebook organized a photography meeting of models and makeup artist. It was the first time I had photographed models, and I really enjoyed it and realized I was not bad at it. Since then this is my main field of photography.

 

Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?

I shoot with Nikon, and my favorite lenses are Nikon 50nn f1.4, Nikon 85mm f1.4 and  Nikon 180mm f2.8.

 

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

For a new photographer I propose to experiment with as many subjects and styles as he can and to create his own photography style.

 

What do you think of our new magazine?

I think your magazine is great. It presents a wide range of photographers and different photographic styles. I would be very happy to take part and participate in it.
