 my interview for Shaadiography

Dear Katia, we at Shaadiography really like your work and the fresh perspective that you bring to Wedding Photography. Tell us about yourself and your journey until now.

Thank you very much 🙂 Well, we have to travel 20 years back where my story began. I was brought up watching my Dad work as a Photographer, not all his life but it took few years of him to go really deep into. It was my first encounter with Photography. What I really learnt from him was to be brave and fight for your dream. Not to care too much about inhibitions and people who are trying to restrict you.

If someone will ask you same question (or, who knows, one day you will ask yourself), will you put down

all that typical job searcher stuffs like profession/nationality/gender? And what if one day you will decide to change your gender? Will you stay same person as before?

The trick is you will never really realize that now you are 840 breaths older than you was an hour ago.

I found myself confused. At the same time there is always other side of the coin. Like, as I believe, my “likes” and “dids” dropped me right where I am now, and todays attraction will lead me to the bright, fascinating tomorrow (Hello, Karma!)

Well, what we have for now.  Continue reading
