Interview: Photographer Den Kara (Moldova)

Can you tell us a little about you?

My name is Dan. I am a photographer with 13 years of experience. I studied photography on my own.

How and when did you get into photography? I started taking photography in my first year of university. My friend had an amateur camera, I asked him to take pictures and since then I got carried away.

What does photography mean to you?

Photography for me is art, my vision of beauty, self-expression.

Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.

I prefer the genres of fashion and beauty (shooting for magazines, modeling tests, portfolios for stylists and makeup artists), and in general I shoot almost everything.

Where do you get inspiration from? I used to look through various magazines, and watch how more experienced competitors and photographers are working, but over time everyone switched to social networks: instagram, pinterest, facebook ...

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

It’s depends on the shooting. If it's an commercial order, then I try to think everything through in advance to save time and show the client that I'm reliable and punctual, and If it's a creative shoot, sometimes in advance, sometimes I come up with something right on the set. And of course, perfect pictures are the work of the whole team: stylist, photographer, makeup artist, and assistants...

Studio, on location or both?

I like different locations, it is important for self-development, to take into account the terrain, to adjust.

Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?

I'm definitely not an amateur, I've been a paid professional for a long time.

What has been your most memorable session and why?

Well, I have a lot of them. For example, shooting a "nun", this image was born by accident, she was not even in the plans, but after 1-2 images we came up with it in the process.

Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?

No offense to anyone, but Canon) Favorite lenses are 85mm, 50mm, 35mm, 24-70mm and 70-200mm.

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

I would not say that I can give advice, but if necessary, I would say: never listen to anyone, follow your gut, always learn new things and do not leave what you started, if something does not work out, photographers are not born, they become experienced.

What do you think of our new magazine?

A promising and interesting magazine.
