Kristina Venichenko: photography gives a huge scope for creativity
To begin, where are you based? How long has photography been a hobby and career of yours? What motivated you to get started?
Now I live in two cities: Novorossiysk and Krasnodar. I have been doing photography for more than five years, since school. While I was studying, I took pictures for myself, then I started working part-time, and by the third year of university I realized that photography would become my life's work. I have been engaged in creative work since childhood, so it was no surprise to anyone that I started photographing. People are more surprised when I say that I graduated from the specialty "Economic Security"
What is your dream in terms of your career?
Photography is the most important for me, so I just want to do my job well.
What has been your most successful moment to date in your career so far?
I remember the first time my work was published on the cover of a magazine, I remember my emotions then, I was very happy.
Has your vision and style evolved or changed over time?
My preferences change too often, I don't always keep up with myself. But I'm constantly in search of something new, it feels like I'm riding a swing every day. It seems to me that my style changes with the change of the season.
What type of models do you prefer to shoot with? Why?
I don't have a preferred model type. I love people who are as passionate about their work as I am, then the work is 100%
Can you please explain some of the feelings you are trying to achieve in your photographs?
One photographer once told me: "With the help of photography, we are trying to tell about ourselves through another person." Most often I try to convey the femininity and at the same time the strength of character of the model that is in front of me.
Fashion can be a somewhat unforgiving industry with a lot of egos, how do you deal with it on set or behind the scenes?
On the set, I don't think about it at all. I need to give 100%, the rest will wait. And behind the platform, it only pushes to grow and develop in this area.
How has photography influenced you as a person and what do you love most about being a photographer?
I've always been shy about making new acquaintances, but thanks to photography, I've made a lot of wonderful new friends. Besides, I don't risk experimenting in life, but photography gives a huge scope for creativity.
From your point of view, what makes the shoot successful?
The return of the whole team, it has already been tested
What projects are you working on next, and what are your goals for the future?
I will develop in different directions of photography, I can't limit myself to one thing.
