Alright, now for the interview! Firstly Tristan, how would you best describe yourself?
Our readers would love to get to know you more Tristan. Tell us about yourself, why you are passionate about what you do, and your journey so far.
I stated as an engineering Student when I discovered my passion for photography. It's been almost a year since then, and I'm still enjoying every minute of it. My main two fields of photography that I enjoy most are Fashion and horses photography. One is about absolute perfection, and the other is about storytelling. For me, it is the ultimate combination. It allows me to experiment and discover new thing on every shoot and to get better every time.
Would you like to complete our full Editorial interview or skip straight to uploading your photos?
Keep interviewing me!
What are your goals and how do you see yourself progressing in the field Tristan?
I want to make a living of photography and become more involved in fashion photography. I love working with people an to collaborate. The fashion business is perfect for that.
How do you communicate with people Tristan? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements?
I like to talk to people in person. Show them my work directly and see if we can work together. Being on the same page is very important. I never hat any issues with deadlines or working with clients. In fact, when I work with people I tend to work harder. The client and his or her needs are always on top of my list. I like to bring in my own ideas if it makes sense but always make sure the client and me now what is important to both of us
If you had to do it over again, what would you change Tristan?
Nothing really. Maybe stop studying parallel to my work as a photographer to have more time to work. But in general, I'm pretty happy with how the situation is right now.
Who is your hero Tristan, and how have they helped you get to where you are?
Sounds a bit cliche but anyway. I think that have to be my parents, because the made it possible that I could discover photography as a passion of mine. Regarding photography, I learned a lot from YouTube and other networks such as fstoppers.com. If I had to name some one, it would be Karl Taylor, because he was the first one who got me thinking about doing fashion photography
How important are creative education courses Tristan? Have you taken any, and did you find them useful?
I think if you are a creative mind all you need is to know some of the technical stuff like how to use your camera or Lightroom and some of the basics about lighting. Like you have to know the rules before you break them. After that I personally just started shooting, trying things out and see for myself. Getting back to courses. I have taken a couple of courses, and I found them to be very helpful. Especially the ones about running a business.
Do you have any tips for someone who is just starting out in the industry?
Keep shooting! Try out and develop your skills. And also show your work to as many people as you can to get really good feedback. That helped me the most
