My background is in software development, and math science is a little different from others in the field, which gives me a unique perspective that has allowed me to see solutions that are creative and resourceful.
Nadiia, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Photographer?
My journey in photography began when I was looking for a wedding photographer for my wedding. We interviewed many before we found a professional whose photos just blew my mind! They were so original, and yet organic, alive, and moving. They grabbed your soul and did not let go off of it. That was the moment I heard my calling. My wedding photographer became my teacher and my mentor.
Who is your inspiration in life Nadiia? How do you keep inspired?
Checking out new publications, buying the latest books, magazines from a favorite author Reading a biography or business bookStay connected to what other artists and photographers are doing
We all make mistakes Nadiia; 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.
1) Don't study photography by yourself as it's a long way. Just select a school or take lessons from a photographer with whose works you are really in love2) Don't afraid to copy existing works. You will never get the same. But you can learn much more.3)Buy photography books, magazines as they are great teachers4) Learn works of other photographers. Try to analyse why to do you like their works: because of the color, posing, idea, retouching
Nadiia, 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 inform them first about possibility delay images delivery. Then I prioritise images depends on how fast my clients need images and how big the client is.
Please tell us Nadiia, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Photographer?
I do preparation for each my shoot. I find out what client want to receive in the end; I usually ask them to provide with inspirational images and then we discuss about the finished result
