Interview: Photographer Ewa Szymańska (Poland)


Can you tell us a little about you?

I am a photographer and graphic designer from Poland, I have been dealing with photography for 10 years and specialize in sensual, boudoir photography.


How and when did you get into photography?

I worked as graphic designer in advertising agency and my favorite job was retouching pictures. One day I decided that I would like to retouch my own photos to edit the style of photography that suits me best. First it was my passion and just a pleasant way to spend a free time, but then I started getting paid jobs.

What does photography mean to you?

It's a job and a hobby for me all rolled into one, so it's probably the best possible combination.


Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers, in fact.

I don't know if I can clearly describe my style, in fact, it changes all the time. I prefer working in daylight, tight framing, detailed processing and soft shadows. Usually I don't photograph the whole body and the model fills almost the entire frame.


Where do you get inspiration from?

At the beginning I wanted just create something similar to the photographers whose work I admired. Now anything can inspire me: a beautiful model, interesting location, advertising campaign of a well-known brand. When I saw a beautiful picture of Matthew Terry in Calvin Klein campain I suddenly wished to try some men model photoshoot.

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

I usually have some assumptions, what I want to do but it doesn’t mean, that the end result will not be entirely different from the assumed one.


Studio, on location or both?

Mostly a location, sometimes a studio.


Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?

Actually both.


What has been your most memorable session and why?

A session that I will never forget happened at the beginning of my work as a photographer. I had to shoot a few very expensive dresses for a client. When model was ready we started shooting. In the meantime makeup artist started looking at the hanging dresses, suddenly she realized that her hand was stained with lipstick and she left red stain on few dresses. I was terrified! Fortunately, the client was understanding and the photos were great.

Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?

Definitely Canon and my favorite lenses are: Canon 85mm f/1.4, Sigma A 105mm f/1.4, Canon 70-200 f/4.0.


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

Do not care about what other people thing about your work and doing your job as best you can.


Whatdo you think of our new magazine?

I love it!
