Interview: Photographer Krzysztof Kowalski (Poland)

15 Oct 2018

Can you tell us a little about you?

My name is Krzysztof Kowalski and I am from Poland. Apart from being a photographer I also create various film productions.

 

How and when did you get into photography?
I got interested in photography because of my beloved woman, who started long before me. Though it does not mean I started from scratch.  Before photography I was and still am a cinematographer and I create different film projects for companies. Recently I combined photography with film and started creating video sessions with models.

 

What does photography mean to you?

Photography is for me entering another world, where everyone can be whoever they want to be. Where you can show certain person in a chosen way. I think that when creating projects I can in some way stop time that is running so relentlessly. I think that after many years people from my photos will be looking back in time and thinking „how it was back then”.

 

Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.

I never thought about whether I have my own style, though I have heard many times that my photos are “film like”. It is probably because my job that I do on daily basis. I think it is a good definition of my style: film like.

 

Where do you get inspiration from?
I try not to follow the trends, I try to go my own way. I never plan ahead frames or positions for models. It is all natural and spontaneus. Often when I do sessions in the forest then those places are speaking to me, I just know that we need to stop here and I feel that in this place there can be great picture taken.

 

Think you in advance what you want in the picture?

Probably as most of photographers I am searching for emotions, but not only. I also try to show surroundings or archtecture, apart from models.

 

Studio, on location or both?

Definitely on location, places outside give me much more fun of creating and give me unlimited possibilities.

 

Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?

Photography is my hobby, though sometimes sessions are commercial. But my main source of income are films.

 

Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?

Definitely Canon. When it comes to lens, I recently fell in love in 85mm f/1.4

 

What is one piece of advice you would like to offer a new photographer looking to start their own business? One reasonable piece of advice that I can give is not to care about criticism of normal people that has nothing to do with photography. They can destroy your dreams, stop your growth and desire to create more and more interesting projects.

 

What do you think of our new magazine?

Your magazine is great, lots of beautiful works there. One thing that is missing for me is lack of paper version in Poland. Maybe one day it will change, and as for now I reccomend to everyone more and more bautiful photos and great models.
