Hi guys, this blog post is going to be a very special challenge for me. For the first time, I will be creating a blog post in English. This is completely outside my comfort zone. Enough talk about me 🙂 Last week, I checked my instagram and I came across a nice profile that interests me enormously. Do you guess what it is exactly? There are many possibilities, but Photography is definitely the best. I’ll leave the floor to this professional photographer serioja_sherman
Tell us something about yourself. Who are you? How old are you? Where do you live? What you are studying ? Are you already going to work? What are your hobbies?
I was born in Moldova in a small town, then my whole family moved to live in Germany and so did I. At the moment I am in Moldova because all my friends and acquaintances are here, but of course more opportunities are in Germany, and even more so for me as for photographer, I am 21 years old, January 23 will be 22 years old. I speak 6 languages: English, Russian, Ukrainian, Moldavian, Romanian and I learn Germany. I am a designer by profession, but I am going to work in Germany in my profession, one of my hobbies is playing the bass guitar.
Are you a full-time photographer or do you do something else? If so, tell me please a bit more about this.
I photograph for myself, I am looking for clients myself or they find me themselves, sometimes I work at weddings as a photographer, it’s not very easy.
How long have you been doing this?
Professionally I started taking photographs 2 years ago and since then I have noticeably grown in quality, before I started taking pictures with my phone and over time I bought myself a camera.
What kind of photography do you like best? Nature? Fashion? Fashion model? To travel?…
Most of all I like to photograph nature, nature is art, as well as travel and then people, I have more nature photographs in my portfolio.
Which photography accessories do you have? How many are there? What are the accessories for?
Accessories are necessary if you want to create “masterpieces” what do I have:
- Lenses, this is the most necessary
- Stabilizer, for creating video
Lenses are used for different scenarios eg 35mm 1.8F lens for portraits, 150mm 3.5F more for nature.
Why the passion for photography?
7 years ago I took pictures with my phone and it seemed to me that the meyan would succeed, but to be honest it was generally awful and I wanted something more and I started saving up for my first camera, I was so happy and full of desire to create masterpieces in photo, of course, I didn’t work very well, but I always strive for perfection and now I have achieved a certain result, photographing this is what inspires me, looking at ordinary things is unusual.
Who or where does the inspiration come from when taking photos?
Each person finds inspiration in different things, personally I find inspiration in nature when I am at one with nature, I feel a fresh breeze, birds singing in the life of creative people there are crises, and in the life of a photographer there is a creative crisis, I had one.
Do you do shoots? How much does it cost for a shoot?
Yes, I take pictures for money, a photo session for:
- 1 model costs 40 €
- A wedding photo session: depending on the order 100 € – 300 €
How do you experience the corona crisis?
Of course, the crown crisis had a very strong effect on work, because it was impossible to contact people at all, and since I needed it, I did not work, but now it’s easier to work, people were also afraid to go to photo sessions, now everyone is used to situation in the world.
How can people contact you?
When I just started doing photography, it was hard for me to find clients, and yes, I even wrote to people myself and offered my services, but over time, my Instagram profile began to grow and people began to recognize me and write to me to make a photo session, in my Instagram profile contains mail, anyone can contact me and I will always to answer.
So, thank you for participating in my interview. I feel very honored to have the opportunity to interview you. I also like to do photography. Super thanks!
