Veronika, can you tell us more about yourself and how did you get involved in the photography business?
Good afternoon. My soul has always loved art. At school I was fond of photography, and when I realized that it was time to change something in my life I decided to try photography and fell in love with this business!
How did you mode specifically towards fashion and beauty photography? What does fashion mean to you?
Fashion and beauty, directed to the mainstream of natural aesthetics and naturalness, I think, can make this world a better place. Kinder and brighter. Inspire and give joy.
Veronika, how would you describe your photographic vision? What kind of look do you try and create in your photos?
In my works I try to reveal the depth of the idea. Pass on questions of concern to me. Create bright and energetic pieces. Always slightly better than the previous ones.
What inspires you and what gives you ideas to create your beautiful images? Can your ideas change depending on the model you are working with?
I am inspired by works of art: painting, work of other photographers. Contemporary cinematography and people. Yes, each model is unique and in the implementation of the project I am looking for the appropriate type who could convey the idea and character. If this is not a planned shoot, I emphasize the character of the model, her strengths.
Could you take us through the typical planning process for your images?
First, an idea is born. Then I put together a team capable of implementing it. Make-up and hair masters, stylists, clothing manufacturers, a model, I think over the location, the light scheme and the message that the photo should embody. Sometimes an idea comes from my friends, makeup artists or stylists, and we discuss the details of the shooting together.
Would you have any tips for non-models on how to look good in front of the camera?
Take 3 selfies. Face and 3/4 on each side - define the working side. Put on nice music, dance, feel the charge of energy. Smile at yourself. Practice in front of the mirror based on the working side (now you know it :) And most importantly, you are unique and beautiful.
Your projects are a collaborative process. Tell us what is like to always be working with new stylists, models, and makeup artists.
There are specialists with whom I work on an ongoing basis, there are new types and creative people. This is a wonderful process, the birth of art and the manifestation of creativity. I sincerely believe that such works bring light to the world and inspire something good.
What project(s) are you especially proud of? Why?
I was implementing a project related to the social problem of psychological violence. I am very proud of him. It was attended by 15 people and each made a huge contribution. Raising such a question, I hope that the younger generation will think and perhaps a string will play in the heart of at least one person and he will be able to change something in his life. Break out of the vicious circle and believe in yourself. I myself went through a similar experience and it was this that allowed me to convey the silent pain in all colors and show that there is a way out.
In your opinion, what makes the good picture stand out from the average? How do you choose which images you provide to your clients?
Intuitively. There are basic requirements for quality, but knowing the person, I try to show his strengths. Studying psychology, during the shooting, I understand what the client expects and what kind of personnel could solve his problem.
What projects are you working on next, and what are your goals for the future?
I would like more people to see my work. Continue lighting hearts, bringing beauty and light. Now I am implementing several projects related to nature and beauty. It is the same with the peace on the planet.
