Interview: Photographer Dawid Stanczak (Poland)

11 Aug 2019

Can you tell us a little about you?

Hi! My name is Dawid. I'm from Poland. I'm 26 years old.

I also work on a hard coal mine every day. Photography is my extra work and a huge passion. Moreover I like to ride a bicycle and spend time with my friends.

 

How and when did you get into photography?

I've been taking photos for two years. The decision was quite spontaneous, I sold the car and bought the equipment. I did not regret it for a moment.


What does photography mean to you?

I guess it even means more from the movie. It lets you capture what I see in a way planned by me, often even bending reality. It is a way to remember the moment, a timeless memory.

 

Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.

I mainly do portraits. In the pictures I try to reach a compromise between the naturalness of the person and the creation of a specific climate in the picture. I do not conceal that I am retouching my pictures, as you can see, but I think that it adds to their individual character.

 

Where do you get inspiration from?

Just when I look at someone I have to see him in my picture, just this.


Do you think in advance what you want in the picture ?

Usually yes. I do not like taking pictures without a purpose. When I'm doing a session, I know what end result I want to get.

 

Studio, on location or both?

I definitely prefer to take pictures outdoors. Mainly it's light, most of my photos are made with natural light.

 

Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?

Both :)

 

What has been your most memorable session and why?

Jest wiele sesji, które zapamiętam na długo, głównie z powodu atmosfery, na swojej drodze spotykam mnóstwo cudownych ludzi, ludzi z ogromną pasją, to jest niesamowite. Gdybym miał wybrać to chyba pierwsza: stres, presja, dreszczyk emocji... :)

 

Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?

I'm not attached to a specific brand, I'm currently working on Canon. Currently, the favorite lens is 85mm, at this moment I work on Sigma Art.

 

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

Hire for work and earn money there. Create a photo like you want, and if you're good at it then the money will come alone.

 

What do you think of our new magazine?

I like it very much. I believe that every form of promoting artists and this type of activity is extremely valuable. It's nice to look at people from the same industry, "meet" people that I could never come across.
