Interview: Photographer Jimmy Machon (Denmark)

Can you tell us a little about you?

Born 1972, a graphical designer, and passioned about creating stories, a poetic depiction of my curly thoughts. I am autodidact and have been teaching photoshop, Design, Animation and Creativity for the last 15 year. Photography is just another way of expressing my ideas.

How and when did you get into photography?

Bought my first camera 28 years ago, but haven’t really spend much time on it until about 7 years ago.

What does photography mean to you?

Just another tool, i dont care what media or what tool I use to visualize my work, but photography for me is an easy way to get good results fast.

Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.

This is really hard, cause i usually does not stick to one style, i am open to everything from nude art, to fashion, but i love to give it a twist of fairytale, a glims of an adventure, a pinch of imagination and creativity.

Where do you get inspiration from?

Pretty much anywhere, but movies, comics, games and other designers usually spark ideas, that i grab and develop to something new.

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

Yes most of the times, i do sketch work, and have a clear idea about the main motive, then i let small details develop as I go.

Studio, on location or both?

Definatly both, but i feel i have more controll in my studio, and i dont feel denmark is the perfect spot for location shoots as the locations in denmark docent speak so much to me, and i feel they dont really fit so much to my ideas.

Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?

I have it as a hobby, my hobby is my work and my work is my life, so i do a bunch of Free work but i do need butter on the bread so this is also where i earn my income.

What has been your most memorable session and why?

None in particular, but My girlfriend is model on many of my images, so we love to travel and do pictures together, so i love working with her and have great experiences with her as my partner, assistant and model.

Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?

Again photography is just a tool in a big box of tools, so i use everything from my phone, to Canon, go pro, and others. At the moment i use a Canon 5D mk II with a 50mm most of the times, but i dont really favor any brand og lens, it all has to do with the job and what suit the job mostly.

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

Dont be afraid of experimenting, learn your tools and gear, have it as a passion and keep the creativity going.

What do you think of our new magazine?

Haven’t read it yet, but i do look forward to read it. It looks promising.
