ABOUT

I am interested in art, I draw and paint constantly. My inspiration is Frida Kahlo; she made me like surrealism a lot. Thanks to her I see myself related to conceptual art.

Majo, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Photographer?

I wanted to be a painter because the painting was a way to show my ideas since I was a little girl I dreamed of sharing what I knew and what I thought, but from there I realised that photography is painting with light and that I was also happy to capture moments or create my own. Scenes. That is why I decided to be a photographer, to share my reality with the world through the lens.

Who is your inspiration in life Majo? How do you keep inspired?

Frida Kahlo, because she painted her reality in front of her unfortunate life, and she did it in a surreal way, but still it was still her life. I photograph my point of view towards people, as I see them and not necessarily as they are.

We all make mistakes Majo; 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.

I've been a photographer for one year, finish my career in 2016 and now I'm working on my career.

Majo, 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 talk to them; I let them express all their ideas and proposals and then rearrange them together with me, planning a project that becomes ours, because we are both parts of the service.

Please tell us Majo, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Photographer?

It took me a long time to be able to organise my ideas and project my priorities, but with the time one learns and investigates and nurtures new things. I received help from teachers, who taught me everything I know now.

Majo, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.

I always try to help and give my point of view in different situations, in terms of work I collaborate in everything that is within my reach and give advice when needed. I like to learn and experience new things.

Majo, 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 show with my photos that people can be used to transmit different versions of each one. I am of the opinion that people are objects to which we can give expressions that do not necessarily have, just as an actor. As for my portraits, I put my portrayed part of me; they come to be a kind of interpretation of what I see. I also use them to raise general concepts.

Majo, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?

I usually draw the pictures first in my mind and then in physical and then take them in a photo. It is easier for me to have an idea in physical than in my mind, and from there I modify them while I do the photo sessions.

What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Photographer?

Do not give up, do not think it's an easy career, because it's not like that. I would advise them to study, investigate and above all have references in art. The photographer who does not take photos is not a photographer.

Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?

I am interested in making portrait photographs. fashion, advertising and also makeup
