Let me be honest - I am not a good writer and storyteller. But I will do my best to keep this blog interesting.
I am a final year photographer at the University of Huddersfield, originally from Ukraine. My everyday life is undoubtedly connected to photography in different ways, either it is a studio shoot, or dissertation, or meeting an artist, or just taking pictures with my iPhone (like the one I’ve attached in this post).
Richard Avedon once said:
“And if a day goes by without my doing something related to photography, it’s as though I’ve neglected something essential to my existence, as though I had forgotten to wake up. I know that the accident of my being a photographer has made my life possible.”
It is one of my favourite quotes by one of the most prominent photographer.
Currently I am working on the major project, dissertation, wedding photography and helping out my friends with fashion and commercial shoots. But I am also doing something that makes my soul shine - it is a film photography. You never know what kind of images you gonna have and it is what fascinates me and intrigues. I am shooting with my old camera Zenit. I bought it when I was 15 and it has its own interesting story. Once I nearly had to fight for this camera :) Soon I am going to develop the film and post few images.
Magic exists, just look around. Thank you for reading this.
