Interview: Photographer Jan Stachowicz (Polen)

11 Jan 2019

Can you tell us a little about you?

Hi, my name is Jan I'm 43 years old, I live near Lublin. 

 

How and when did you get into photography?

All of that began with the fascination with chemistry and processes that take place in the photographic darkroom. When I was 16 I discovered total fascination with photography, I think it may be related to the fact, that my grandfather was also a photographer. In the past he had a photo studio in Warsaw. 

During my studies I was a photographer at the University. 

 

What does photography mean to you?

The meaning of photography for me is both the documentation of a given moment, situation as well as showing the beauty of another person and his emotions. 

 

Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.

My style is a constant search for a light, but the form is still dynamic and from time to time I experience new fascination. 

 

Where do you get inspiration from?

Small things are inspiration for me, for example light from a candle flame, rain on the glass. These things become the leitmotif for subsequent photos.

 

Think you in advance what you want in the picture?

I usually act spontaneously, even if I have a plan of action I still love spontaneity at the end. 

 

Studio, on location or both?

I like both, location for natural light and unlimited scenery, studio where just like in a lab, the photographer's imagination is a limitation.

 

Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?

I’m a hobbyist. I do not like any restrictions that can affect the end result and give me full freedom in the creation. 

 

What has been your most memorable session and why?

Work with a beautiful girl M. who had the first professional session with me. A month later she worked at professional outdoor events and she became a well-know model. 

 

Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?

Canon, Sigma Art 105

 

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

I think it is important to work with light, watching how the light is arranged on the model. 

It is also important to invest in the first place in the workshop and in the second in the equipment. 

 

What do you think of our new magazine?

It is very aesthetic, wonderful photos and great quality. Very good job.
