Interview: Photographer Anastasiia Ses (Ukraine)
Can you tell us a little about yourself?
I am a Ukrainian photographer, I lived in Moscow, Hong Kong and Milan for a long time. Photography is my passion. I Always try to capture the most interesting moments of my life with a camera and share these moments with others.
How and when did you get into photography?
When I was 13 I decided to try to take my first shots and like everyone, I came to the Photo just starting to shoot as an amateur, but after some time I realized that photography became a daily matter for me, a habit with which I could not part. For some time I was working as a photomodel, but after some time I realized that being on the other side of the lens is much more interesting for me.
What does photography mean to you?
Photography means a lot to me, but the key value of photography such is for me the opportunity to share the most unique moments of my life, to give other the opportunity to see how I see this world, people and everything that surrounds and inspires me. This is an
opportunity to look at the World through the eyes of another person.
Where do you get inspiration from?
I am inspired by nature, when I am alone with nature, I am inspired by it, it gives me the strength and the understanding that everything natural is beautiful. Beauty in simplicity
Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?
100% Paid professional.
Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.
The transfer of the atmosphere and the mood that I experienced during the shooting is my style.
Think you in advance what you want in the picture?
Sure, even if these are pictures of landscapes, I preview the weather, I calculate the time (for light) to catch exactly what I want to see in the photo.
Studio, on location or both?
Both, for sure. In order to take a good picture it is not necessary to be in a studio with a professional light. And in order to take pictures with natural light it is not necessary to be in the studio.
What has been your most memorable session and why?
I guess, it was in Meteora (Greece). This is not the most popular place, but it is one of the locations from the series Game of Thrones. It captures the spirit of how unusual and beautiful it is.
Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?
Sony! For sure only Sony. I adore this camera.
What is one piece of advice you would like to offer a new photographer looking to start
their own business?
Do not copy anyone and create your own style.
