I am a perfectionist. For me important is the result of my work. I like to change people's view of themselves. Before shooting the person may not believe in its beauty and possibility, is revealed after and give his surroundings and the world a happy smile. Nice photography to relieve stress in people.
Alexander, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Photographer?
My story is amazing. I am from a dynasty of photographers. But to 27 years and never thought to pursue it seriously. I grieved father. Making the first move was difficult. I started with retouching, and the process was fascinating to me. The father was evaluated and prompted, but for the most part, I studied alone. Trial and error build. In the end, for 27 years and to this day I marry my love of retouching and a passion for photography. I like every stage, from inventing the idea to the final implementation.
Who is your inspiration in life Alexander? How do you keep inspired?
I'm looking for inspiration in music, books and poetry. The idea can inspire any object. I am grateful to photography for the ability to more acutely notice the details of objects that previously did not pay attention. Save inspiration is not difficult enough to live and breathe your passion.
We all make mistakes Alexander; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Photographer; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
14 years I've been involved in photography and retouching. For me this process never is bored. It gives awesome fun interesting people. Professionals. Especially rejoice in the opportunity to work in teams with professionals. So many ideas and possibilities to implement the plans. To gain invaluable experience. Looking back I wouldn't change anything in my life. Forward to new knowledge, technologies, opportunities, and Dating.
Alexander, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Photographer, how do you go about prioritising your clients’ needs?
I have an individual approach to each client and honest with them. My priority is to help the client to form an accurate concept of your order. It would bring him not only profit but the joy of active participation in the process. I also clearly understand, to cover all orders is not possible. For this have to work properly with their time. To do this, I constantly improve their technology process from idea to final product. It allows you to save time and not lose quality.
Please tell us, Alexander, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Photographer?
I have always sought to communicate with more professional photographers than I am. It keeps me on my toes and broadens the mind. I learn new technologies and equipment. I also suggest topics to explore independently. Teamed all of the information I am embedded in its technology. The world of photography is not in place. This is a great opportunity not to miss.
Alexander, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
I work with any person. which to contact me. There are times when a photo is used as therapy. People, for example, never smiled. I can spend a few days to get a picture of him with a smile and give it to him. I love shooting directly into the computer using Phase One Capture Pro showing the beauty of the eyes. Destroy the stereotypes of plastic retouch. People see from the live shot and sometimes the first time asking "Is that me?". After that, people begin to change internally and to believe in yourself more.
Alexander, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Photographer. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
I wanted to get into a professional team of advertising photographers. I was introduced to one of them. He looked at my work and gave to understand still have a lot to learn. Then I did not know about the beginning they conceived of ways the gorgeous lesson in life for me. I periodically met with him showing new developments, and he silently looked at them and said it's still early. For 2 years I refused. The other would have abandoned the idea. I continued to independently shtudiroval photograph and develop. By the end of the third year, I came again with new photos. To my surprise, there was, redlea when he told me "now you don't need us, you got what you wanted and became a samostalni photographer". After he smiled at me seeing my shock and introduced me to the whole team. So I joined the team and the world real live pictures. That's a lesson I still remember, and it always inspires new goals.
Alexander, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
The most creative of creativity to have to spend when you need to lift a person or a new brand from obscurity to recognition. The process is complicated. Requires a lot of effort. But that he is valuable. To invent a story of a person or brand, create a website, hold a few photo shoots, to select material for the site. All this I try to do at the startup stage of the project. Sometimes you have to think of a beautiful legend and a certain time to maintain. The resulting experience is priceless. There are no similar schemes. To always put something new and it will need to learn and implement in the project quickly.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Photographer?
The same faith in myself a little, learn to think logically and set clear goals from small to large. Respect your customer and be friendly. Do not try to go to other people's knowledge by assigning all the credit. It will play havoc in the future.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?
Yes, I am interested in commercial cooperation. Ready to work on an interesting art project in which all the parties shall share equally in the costs. TFP possible with very interesting ideas and permission from the model or the customer to use the photos for commercial purposes.
