Interview: Photographer Thomas Henell (Sweden)


Can you tell us a little about you?

Hi! My name is Thomas Henell, 58 years old in July this year and born just South of Stockholm in Sweden.

I have spent about 25 years living abroad, studying and working. I am married since 2001 and my wife and I live in a beautiful house in the mountains of South Chile.

Having travelled to more than 100 countries, I have met many people and cultures. This has been the main trigger to fully explore my passion for photography.


How and when did you get into photography?

Exotic travels got me into nature photography. However, when living in Panama and Argentina (2007 to 2016) my interest in Fashion photography really took off. Inacquired a lot of lighting equipment and started an amazing journey exploring the beauty of the Latin American people.


What does photography mean to you?

It is a way for me to show the beauty of this world.


Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers?

I am very much into beauty photography. Both studio, I had my own in Buenos Aires, and on location. Always with top class MUA ans stylists.


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

Yes, almost always. I am very much into details and planning. Always working in a team with model, MUA and stylist.


Where do you get inspiration from?

I always have a notebook in which I draft ideas. Listening to music drives my inspiration, as well purchasing clothes and accessories, especially in 2nd hand shops where theaters sell off creations they have used. I had a favorite place in Buenos Aires… I also love watching people..especially at airports… very inspiring!


7Studio, on location or both?

Both.


Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?

Hobbyist.


What has been your most memorable session and why?

1 week of shooting with the fabulous Morelia Fabio on the island of Dominican Republic in 2012. Paradisic beaches, gorgeous and genuinly lovely model. It was simply outstanding.


Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?

Nikon, 70-210 2.8. Unbeatable for both studio and on location!


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

Spend a lot of time to build relations… they are crucial for success. Partner with a MUA, it is ALL about TEAMWORK.


What do you think of our new magazine?

Excellent initiative and superb opportunity to showcase photographers not so well known, but with potential.
