“I like working with people I already know.” 28 | loveFMD.com
Can you tell us how a professional shooting is organized? Who is picking the pictures for the Magazine? Well, I like working with people I already know. There are always hair and make-up artists and a stylist at least. I like to pick a model most of the time even if I am hired for the job, because results depend on me, and to deliver a quality work, I have to be able to control every step of it. I do my selection 99% of the time and send them to the client for approval before editing. We know it’s not easy to name favorite models, but if you could select three models for a shooting, who would it be? Well 3 models I’ve already worked with would be of course Gintare Sudziute, Martina Dimitrova, and Yara Khmidan. The ones I’d love to work with would be Luma Grothe and Sasha Luss. What are the bad sides of the fashion industry? I would say it’s not worse than any other industry, artists that are difficult to work with, commenting on everyone and everything... but personally I try to stay out of all this. If you could give an advice for New Faces and rising models, what would it be? Try to push their booker to make them test with local photographers that are published, contact photographers, even with mood boards or a concept that you’d like, use the social network, watch work of successful models to see how they act, pose... The perfect model – a myth? What makes a model perfect at a shooting? Someone that gives you unexpected options, that has features that could work on any lighting situations, and that is happy and excited to be on set with you. Do you remember what your first camera was? A Canon 5D Mark II Did someone influence you to become a photographer? Not at all, it just happened. How has your style evolved in the last years? When I started photography, I was trying to do way too much, makeup, lighting, styling... The more i grew as a photographer I learned that the most simple thing is to shoot. To define your style is the most important part as a photographer I’d say. A client would hire you to have your style for his brand. But it is really important to stay inspired by others and try to push yourself and always try new things. 29 | loveFMD.com
