Interview: Photographer Jarosław Hauber (Poland)
Can you tell us a little about you?
I am passionate about photography. I am also interested in photo processing - retouching and photo collages.
How and when did you get into photography?
I have been taking photos for as long as I can remember. I got my first camera when I was 9 years old. I have been working s a professional photographer for 15 years.
What does photography mean to you?
Photography is mainly a way of fulfilling my passion.
Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.
I only photograph beautiful women, mainly in the sensual and glamorous moods. I heavily focus on post-production. It takes me about 2 to 4 hours to process one photo.
Where do you get inspiration from?
I draw inspiration while observing the work of recognized photographers.
Do you think in advance what you want in the picture ?
Half of my works are created with an earlier intention and half of them are a result of improvisation.
Studio, on location or both?
I have a large modern studio equipped with everything that is needed, including a cyclorama, but from time to time I also work outdoors.
Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?
Photography is more of a hobby for me. I earn money working in a completely different area. I contribute more to photography than I earn.
What has been your most memorable session and why?
The thing I remember the most is a photo session in the street, where the model was dressed in a summer buttoned dress. Some of the photos were taken near a fountain. At some point, the model unbuttoned her dress, took it off and entered the fountain. She had no underwear, and the whole situation was in the middle of the city. I was shocked, but I managed to take some photos of this situation.
Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?
I have always photographed with NIKON cameras and have used SIGMA lenses. My favorite lenses include the Sigma Art 85 mm F1.4 and the Sigma S 70-200mm F2.8.
What is one piece of advice you would like to offer a new photographer looking to start their own business?
A beginner photographer who wants to earn money on photography has two options: to take photos of weddings and baptisms, or to become a world-famous photographer, where his photos are on the covers of famous magazines. The first situation is boring, the second is hard to achieve.
What do you think of our new magazine?
Your magazine is very interesting. You post high quality photos. The only element I would change is the text - to be in one language.
