Interview: Photographer Kamil Kowalczyk (Poland)

Can you tell us a little about you?

42 yo, father, husband, small business owner, is it a little enough J ?

How and when did you get into photography?

My story with photography it`s like very complicated couple love story. I started late, I was 30 when I bought my first camera, lenses, full studio lighting kit, and few books about photography. After a few months of learn I started to shoot events, portrait and family sessions (and earn some first money). Unfortunately photography didn`t come to my main job. I share my time between my main business, family and photography, which was a victim this relationship. Soon arrived a long divorce with my camera, and everything landed into a box for few years. In 2018 my wife asked me to took some photos to her pregnant sister. When I set up background, lights, and took camera to my hands, I felt this “something” again.

What does photography mean to you?

passion, emotions, memories, all kind of feelings

Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.

B&W portraits mainly, but I don`t want to put myself into a frames one kind, I love to try new things.

Where do you get inspiration from?

I think, that movies are quite important for myself, especially if we speak about frames and color grading. Usually when I watch the movie, more important like a storytelling is a camera angle, frame, light and colors J.

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

When I`m doing photos for myself, to my portfolio, they always are in my head before I put the shutter down.

Studio, on location or both?

Like I said before, with my first camera I bough full studio lighting set, then my natural environment is a studio. But when is nice weather outside I do not to say no.

Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?

On a half way at the moment.

What has been your most memorable session and why?

I believe that those session in still before me J. If I have to choose, it was first one with a professional photomodel. It is completely different kind of work, and every beginning photographer should to try it as soon as possible on his photography way.

Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?

I never was a brand freak, and to be honest I can`t understand those brand wars. At the moment I use Canon myself. Lens definetelly 85mm.

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

Newer give up, be yourself, and always is good time to start (even if you are 40+ J)

What do you think of our new magazine?

I very like them. Lots of inspirations and a lot of great photos.
