Interview: Photographer Kristian Podrepsek (Austria)

Tell us something about yourself

Well, I was born on 15.05.1959 in Graz. After school, I did an apprenticeship as an electrician, then another as a machine technican and then trained as a foreman for mechanical engineering.

I have 5 wonderful daughters who are all grown up and well educated.

I have been "retired" for 2 years and can now devote myself to my passion, nude and people photography, and will continue to develop this on my travels around the world.2 How and

When did you get into photography?

I've been taking photos since my early youth. So for around 50 years. Back then, my father gave me an old Russian camera. Without any electronic aids, of course.


What does photography mean to you?

If I hadn't become a technician, I would definitely have become a photographer. I just love it!


Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.

I practically only photograph female nude models. Believe it or not, preferably with amateurs who are in front of the camera for the first time. With most models two to three times afterwards.


Where do you get your inspiration from?

Simply by going for a walk or watching movies. I love to read LIGHT! I observe very closely what effect light has on my surroundings and then try to recreate it in my work.


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

Always and exclusively! My pictures are not created by chance, but are well planned.


Studio, on site or both?

Definitely both! Unfortunately, I can no longer afford my own studio since I retired. I therefore switch to home shoots or hotels.


Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?

I am professional! But normally I shoot TFP. I don’t need to earn money from shootings.


What was your greatest session experience and why?

I can't possibly answer that! All the models I work with are exceptional. And I love asking them to cooperate until they give up their shyness and let themselves go. It's a great experience to see this transformation every time! 


What has been the biggest source of inspiration for your work?

My world of thoughts! When my imagination is doing somersaults!


Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?

Canon. 70 - 200/2,8


What advice would you like to offer a new photographer who wants to start their own business?

If you're not prepared to go all out without constantly thinking about making money, then don't!


What do you think about our new magazine?

Very cool thing! And I'm delighted to be involved!
