Interview: Photographer: Karolina Leszczyńska – Urbaniak (Poland)

Can you tell us a little about you?

My name is Karolina Leszczyńska – Urbaniak, I come from Poland. I’m a photographer and also a mother and a wife.

How and when did you get into photography?

I became interested in photography as a teenager over 20 years ago. I started taking analog photos, spending long hours in the darkroom. Over time, this passion turned into a profession. Currently, I run my own company offering photography services.

What does photography mean to you?

Photography as an opportunity to create is a great value in my life. I still have a head full of new ideas that are reflected in photography. Besides, thanks to photography, I can run my own business and be my own boss;)

Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.

I deal with artistic photography to a large extent. I make fine art portraits.

Where do you get inspiration from?

I find inspiration everywhere: painting, films, books, pop culture icons, but also in nature and people.

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

Yes, each of my sessions is planned and thoughtful, although I am flexible. If something doesn't go as planned, I can easily change the concept.

I also deal with the styling of models, which gives me great pleasure, because it is another element where I can use my creativity.

Studio, on location or both?


Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?

I’m a paid professional photographer and also a hobbyist, because I love my job ;)

What has been your most memorable session and why?

The last session I had is for a brief moment the most memorable one (if everything went according to my expectations). And each session planned in the future is the most anticipated one;)

Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?

I work with Nikon. My favourite lenses are Sigma lenses: 85 mm, 35 mm and Nikkor 50 mm.

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

Initially, I advise against overinvesting. It's best to learn to do your best with the resources available.

What do you think of our new magazine?

I think Modellen Land Magazine is great! It allows you to see the works of various photographers.
