Hair Stylist Miss Crystal
Could you tell us about how you became involved with photography and realized you wanted to be a photographer?
Me: I started at a very young age with a film camera and people used to be very thrilled with the way I approach them to be in front of my lens.
Do you think that photography has changed you in any way? What do you love most about Photography?
Me: Yes, most definitely!
I now see the world from a different point of view, In my head, I am always placing a subject at that particular location where I am and trying to figure out what the outcome would be in a photograph. What I like most about Photography is the ability to create the impossible from just a fraction of your imagination.
Do you have any favourite pieces of equipment you couldn’t live without?
Me: Over the years, I developed a love relationship with the 70-200 mm f/2.8 lens ; It became one of my favorite lenses and therefore never leave home without it.
If you had unlimited resources who and what would you photograph?
Me: I enjoy photographing people with a story to tell so if i had unlimited resources I would definitely veterans older people to showcase what they've been through.
How do you keep yourself motivated when it comes to creating your editorials?
Me: I am constantly creating images in my head and once I have something in mind I cannot sleep until it comes to life.
Could you tell us a little bit about the concept behind your editorials we featured?
Me: The model (Lisa Evanoff) is obsess with horses and truth be told, so am I. A very good friend of mine has this gorgeous horse (Smoke) well trained so I approached with the idea of doing an editorial with him (Smoke) and a model (Lisa) and she was thrilled to be on board and help me create this editorial.
What is the impression you want viewers to get from your work?
Me: I want the viewers to get the impression that they were part of the photoshoot when it happened, I want them to see what I saw before I took each shot.
Do you have any tips for photographers/creatives at the start of their journey?
Me: I would say to let your imagination run wild, whatever vision is going through your head to at least try it, only through trial errors you will get better.
Amongst your work do you have a favourite and why?
Me: So far, almost every photo session is a favorite, each photograph speaks to me in different ways.
- What do you feel has been your biggest accomplishment to date?
Me: My biggest accomplishment to date would be becoming one of the official Canon Canada Photographers
- Is there any thing key in the future your aiming for?
Me: I am aiming to be a Celebrity Fashion Photographer
