ABOUT
Hi!
I'm photo editor with 5-year experience. 
I specialized in beauty/fashion retouching.

I have an individual approach to each photo and always try to make it more interesting, original and unusual. 
So, I can say that retouching - it's my favourite job!
During my professional career, I got publications in Dryminds mag, NAKID mag, Elegant mag, The Draft mag, Dreamless mag.

Our readers would love to get to know you more Liya. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you, your brand or the services you offer?

as You see, I have an unusual name - Liya Embrace, but I must say that this name is not real
When I started retouching career, I wanted to build my brand, that will have a nice name and will sound good!
And from that time I created this nickname consist of 2 words.
Liya - I like how soft and tender this name sounds.
Embrace - maybe You can't understand my crazy mind, but I inspired with the book of
Andrzej Sapkowski called "Witcher".
There was one character who has the second name "Erase", and I imagined how it would sound together - "Liya Erase".
I liked it! But I wanted to add some sense to name of my brand, and I remembered verb "Embrace", that so close to Erase. 
I was thinking: "Woooww, it will fit so good for me."
So finally, Liya EMBRACED all creative fields that I love: retouching, photography, cinematography, insta blog, textile art.
So all lines of my art can call Liya Embrace
I hope. You understood all that I told You.
And my real name is Tatyana Kondratyuk!

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

For this moment I can say that food photography, and cinemagraphs is my passion. Recently I bought Fujifilm XT-20, so now I can take photographs using a professional camera, not a simple smartphone. 

What about retouching: I always loved editing photos, that was my hobby. I used Adobe Photoshop just for editing my photos, that was a nice experience
Then I understood that I could make money with my hobby! 
I learned to retouch for a while, and then I found photographers for collaboration.
with each new order my experience increased, and
and it increases now 

Who is your inspiration in life Liya? How do you stay inspired as Retoucher?

I'm inspired by different photographers: fashion, beauty and food photographers. I love Peter Lindbergh, Patrick Demarchelier, Tina Eisen, Linda Lomelino.

We all make mistakes Liya; we wish we could take back. What was the mistake you made in the past that you wish you can take back?
You know, I think I don't want to take back things and mistakes that I did. I did choices that change me and made me who I am now.

Liya, How do you describe yourself regarding working with clients?


I'm a responsible and fair person; I always meet deadlines (it's important). I love my work, and I put my soul in each photograph. My clients = my friends, and
I cherish these friendly relations 

Please tell us Liya, how do you prioritise work, social life, friends, and family?

1.Family
2. Work
3. Social life
4.Friends
And I think this list change time to time

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


I'm not sure that I understood the question correctly, but I think I worked one year as a retoucher, and then photographers began to notice me

Liya please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Retoucher. 


My work got publication in the Elegant mag, and it will be printed! Also one of the photos that I retouched is on the cover!

Liya, 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 always can be creative when I do colour grading. Because colour always creates the atmosphere and mood of the photo. And also photo compositing and matte painting projects are always creative and exciting. I imagine how I want to see final image, and then I create a photo from many parts. In such projects, you need to be able to fantasize and have a sense of taste

What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Retoucher?*
*
You need to work hard! And you always need to follow and view photographers and other retouchers.

Now for the best part Liya! Please upload 5-10 photos so we can get to see your work.

She makes a claim about herself on personal exhibition in Moscow in November 2015.

"When you start to think you are successful - take a look around and you will find another goal."

Ilona's works are to be marvelled at. She has accomplished so much in her short career as a photographer, and we wish her ever success in the coming years. We really hope to see more of you!

How did you get to where you are now in your career?

Tell us something interesting about you, something inspiring. Don't be shy.

I am a fashion & fine art photographer, focusing on advertising, beauty art direction, post-production, and retouching. I am 23 years old, living in Moscow. My debut personal exhibition "Victims" was presented in November 2015 and got a lot of reviews. My style contains fantasy, surrealistic elements, sometimes dark and mysterious. I'm shooting fashion and advertising for different brands, editorials for fashion magazines and promo-shoot for popular musicians and celebrities. "Fairytale fashion" is a word which I can fully describe my style.

Have you taken any photography courses?

The best teacher is your own experience.

What person has been your inspiration in life? Who is your hero?

I'm never creating a hero for myself. Every human which has a success in his/her activities is a hero, in some sense. If you have a volition, wish to be the only one, and wish to be the best - you can do anything. But if you give up - I'm sure, you are just not even tried.

Do you feel like you’ve met your goals and are successful?

When you start to think you are successful - take a look around and you will find another goal. So, I'm successful in which way, what I can do what I love and people help me to fulfill my dreams.

If you were to do it all over again, what would you change?

Everything goes on as usual. If I was not born in the town where I was born, I'd never become a person like I am now. I don't want to be another person, it would scare me.

Just never give up. If you really think what your way is a one way - take anything possible to show your soul to the world. You do not immediately receive recognition, but if you will find your own style - follow it to the end. The only reliable support in your life bridge - is yourself.

How do you stay inspired?

Inspiration is not a windy muse, it's a hard job. If I've been lazy for one day, I'll start to think that I've missed something really important. So it's a greater incentive for me. Also I've found a support in nature. In the dense morning fogs, in colorful meadows, in the murky swamps, in majestic mountains and bitter berries.

What photography-related tips do you recommend?

If you are only start to photograph, do not run to buy an expensive professional camera. It can fight off the desire to understand its settings. Try to find something more reliable to you, the device which you can take with you everywhere, like phone or compact camera. And later you will understand yourself, so it's a time to switch it to more serious equipment. The time, when your projects find its own auditory and clients. And remember, you first 3 years of photography are the worst.

What is your most memorable moment on the job?

They are just looking to my art projects and if they love it, they will hire me, but if whey think what your art projects are bad - it's not your client. Even if they will hire you, you will never get a good clients. They will always be unhappy. Try to find the people who are on one wave with you. Which understand and respect your ideas.

What is your favourite camera?

Most part of my portfolio was made with Canon 600d, but for serious projects I'm using Canon 6d or 5D MK III.

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

I always think of this saying " Nobody can do anything that nobody can do."
Our job is to show more creative art to others. If people say you are a flake, this is the best compliment.
My goal is to put my thoughts in one photograph, and I want to convey my thoughts to the people.
I always check elements, all staffs in the field. Because the field is very active and dynamic, it is impossible to predict which changes will occur. Because, I always check the elements, all staffs, and all the equipment to minimise the change.

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

I present reference to the other person to replace the concept I thought. I have a lot of talk with the other person for the concept. Talk and reference is a very important factor in creating creations that are mutually satisfying.

We all make mistakes Gyunsu; 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.

Self-satisfaction can never develop myself. I always simulation my field again and again and again..because self-reflection gives me many changes.

Gyunsu, 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?

When I was working in the entertainment, the vice president is my hero. She's name is taeshin Kim. She had a lot of idea and leadership.

ABOUT

My passion moves me, in each job I give myself to what I like to do, to create and to work as a team.

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

Creating is my passion, I finish one work already thinking about the next one, and I only feel complete when I am creating something new.My relationship with photography began very early, like a child's play, when I was nine when I created scenes with my dolls.

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

The beauty of life, every little thing can be a great inspiration at the right time.

We all make mistakes Marcia; 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 consider myself a lucky person because I have always been able to work with a great team, tuned. But if there is one thing I would have liked to have done better is to have been more firm in my opinions, but I have learned this over time.

Marcia, 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 try to stay focused on the organisation. I have a fairly methodical workflow, and this helps me to stay focused on the right place.

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

I try to keep everything as simple as possible, following the maxim that says less is more, that way I feel free to explore the full potential of the moment.

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

Once I had a big problem with equipment on the set, which prevented me from following the original briefing, while my assistant ran after a solution I talked to the client and managed to convince him to change the strategy, showing him that plan B could be even better and indeed it was, as it made more sense in the whole of the brand.

Marcia, 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 feel very satisfied after each work, and I already think about the next one, but without a doubt what made me proud was the editorial "Painted Lights", because I was able to print with maximum fidelity the concept I had planned, without escaping any detail and because of the technique employed, long exposure and blending flash with continuous light that I had never explored and managed to master without difficulty.

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

In my author work, I always look for concepts that can take my creativity a step further, so I believe that everyone is a good example of this, I could not highlight just one.

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

Study the light very much, try and improve your technique to the maximum and be persistent.

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

I'm always open to collaborating with a creative and passionate team, so I look for collaborators who love photography and who like to explore their possibilities.

Our readers would love to get to know you more Caroline. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you, your brand or the services you offer?

I’m currently a student at the University of Alabama and me also a model. I’ve been modelling for a few years now, and I’ve enjoyed it. I love working with brands and enjoy shoots with creative concepts. I feel that Instagram has helped grow my platform. I love that I can use it as my portfolio and know that every picture I post will get much engagement.

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

I love art, and I’ve always been an artistic individual. I feel that modelling helps me embrace that part of me.

Who is your inspiration in life Caroline? How do you stay inspired as Model?

I’m always looking through fashion magazines and model’s Instagrams for ideas. I love how everyone has their style, and it’s allowed me to develop my own.

We all make mistakes Caroline; we wish we could take back. What was the error you made in the past that you want to you can bring back?


I feel that you learn from mistakes and every mistake I’ve made in my life has been something I’ve learned from. I’ve always been a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. With that being said, I don’t think I would take anything back because I wouldn’t be where I am today.

Caroline, How do you describe yourself regarding working with clients?

I’ve always been professional and involved when it comes to working with people. After all, I want to do a great job and make sure we create something that we are proud of. So being involved in the creative process and knowing what they wish to beforehand ensures that I will show up and prepared.

Please tell us, Caroline, how do you prioritise work, social life, friends, and family?

School, friends and family come first. Any time that I have left goes to modelling. Personally, I think I do a great job prioritising everything. If my schedule begins to impact my family or the social life, negatively I do a good job of rebalancing everything.

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

I am always open to everyone’s opinions and ideas. Luckily I’ve never been in a situation where I’ve had to redirect someone. I still work with amazing artistic people, and the final product always turns out beautiful.

Caroline, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model. 


Recently, I’ve started working with many clothing boutiques. I’ve always wanted to model unique clothing brands, and I’m so happy that I am finally able to do so.

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


Recently, I did a shoot with a Columbus photographer named Rakib. He told me he wanted to do a red series and left the outfits up to me. I ended up putting together this outfit that matched the location correctly. It was completely unintentional but looked very editorial. We shot outside of the Columbus Museum of Art in front of a Blue, White and Red sculpture. My outfit was those exact colors, and it couldn’t have turned out better.

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


It’s essential that you have your unique style or look that sets you apart from people. I also think Instagram is a great tool that can help display that. A lot of brands and talented photographers use social media to scout potential models and influencers. Using social media as a portfolio can get your name out there.

ABOUT
I'm a portrait photographer in the West Midlands / England. It has always been my dream to open unique photography studio. Photography is my passion and thrives on creating and developing unique solutions for her clients and customers.

My work has been featured ScratchMagazine.

Influenced by elegance, colour and new trends, I create personal photography stories for my customers based on their individual needs and expectations.

As well as working on my work, I also tutors on a 1-2-1 basis and organises photography workshops in my B Style studio.

"I will work with you, not just to take a photo, but help you capture the perfect moment..."

Our readers would love to get to know you more Bella. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?

I am focused on my client; I make them forget the camera is there.

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

My passion is photography and fashion. I aspire to become a famous and well-known fashion photographer.

I started out styling photographer's models, and I quickly understood that photography was in my veins, so I swiftly enrolled in college to study, and I have never looked back.

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

My inspiration in life is Mert Alas (photographer). He had a fashion background and is presently a famous fashion photographer. 

Dancing and musical lyrics inspire me.

We all make mistakes Bella; 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.
In my early days, my communication skills were not good with my colleague; after I quickly understood if you want to create great work, team work was essential, now, I communicate and listen to people in great detail.


Bella, 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 prioritizing your clients’ needs?

Portfolio value, relationships

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

A business wanted me to create a futuristic image, I took a risk and mixed warm and cool colours in one image. Some team members did not like the idea but I believed in my work, and this work became on the front cover of Scratch Magazine, with two pages of editorial.

Bella, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
As above, question 17. I persuaded the team with a fantastic piece of work.


Bella, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Photographer. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you just want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
When I opened my Photography Studio while I was studying in my second year, my tutors were very proud and provided me with much support.

Bella, 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 connected Toys and Real Life in my early days of photography. It was so exciting to create a different view of life but wasn't easy to create a storyline.

What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Photographer?*
*
So important to choose team members, as a good stylist, hair dresser, make up artist and right model for your project.

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

Our readers would love to get to know you more Thorton. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?

I am an Athlete, Author, curator of content, currently working in software sales. I am Haitian American, that is honestly here for the adventure. 

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

I am truly passionate about making someone’s life better in any circumstance. Be that donating, be that therapy with a friend, maybe helping a friend get a business idea up and running. I truly enjoy being the light bulb for someone, the spark. Modeling honestly just happened to me. I did it for fun in college because I wanted the girls haha, but then began enjoying aspects of being able to cause emotions based on pictures.

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

My mother is a big inspiration in my life, my family and my best friend. Those you keep close to you are meant to push you. I’m also inspired by who I can become, so I’m consistently battling the future me in a sense. 

We all make mistakes Thorton; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Model; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
Honestly, I don’t have a moment. If I could go back, it would just take away from what life means. Everything that has happened to me has made me who I am 

Thorton, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Model, how do you go about prioritizing your clients’ needs?

The organization is huge; if you can prioritize the immediate needs, you’ll be able to get to everyone. 

Please tell us, Thorton, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Model?

I had a moment where I knew I needed to be seen by the masses to be considered or recognized as a good model. So, in being strategic, I had to find the photographer that would be able to that.

Thorton, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you just want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
Being published in essence has been my proudest moment.

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