I'm a portrait photographer who specialises in style, fashion and glamour photography.
Nena, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Photographer?
I started taking pictures of my children. People liked them, so they began to hire me. That compelled me to get better. I took private classes, attended workshops and subscribed to Creative Live.
Who is your inspiration in life Nena? How do you keep inspired?
Sue Bryce. Annie Leibovitz and Felix Kunze
We all make mistakes Nena; 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 accidentally did not take care of some print orders, and they were ruined.
Nena, 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?
Under promise and over deliver is key.
Please tell us, Nena, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Photographer?
A business can't survive on talent alone. One must advise from another business professional in order for the business to thrive.
Nena, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
A woman believed she was too big to be photographed. She needed headshots for her portfolio but was hesitant to invest in herself. After a few test shots, I showed her the back of my camera. She was very happy with those images and amazed that she looked slimmer.
Nena, 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 give back.I decided on doing a photojournalistic project to honornour women veterans. I called it, "I WEAR COMBAT BOOTS TOO". The county commissioner noticed my work, and I was invited to a Veteran's luncheon where I was surprised with a plaque for my work.
Nena, 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 was asked to photograph a group of kinder graduates. I prepared an amazing backdrop, and the kids looked fabulous.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Photographer?
Don't copy anyone, find your style and stay true to want your love.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?
Sure, glamour and fashion.
