Interview with ~imitate-rain
How did you first get into photography?
I remember enjoying taking photos when I was young but never really thought about photography until studying it at high school and really seeing the creative opportunity it has. I decided to take it on more seriously at University, this is when I began sourcing models and creatives for shoots
Please tell us about the photography equpment that you use for most shoots.
I usually use a 5dmrk II, and 85mm lens or 50mm 1.8
Do you have a muse?
I don't have a specific muse while shooting, but am inspired by many different artists whether they're photographer's, painters, cinematographers, or designers. A few favourites are Danny Yount, Tim Walker, Karen Radkai, and Claude Monet
Where do you draw inspiration for your shoots?
I like to draw inspiration from narratives, tv/movies, magazines, and illustrations for my fashion based work. For more personal work, like my 365, I tend to draw inspiration from thoughts or emotions I'm experiencing at the time
What is your ultimate dream project?
I have too many to list haha, probably photographing for a magazine like vogue, or shooting promotional material for a film or tv show, or a creative photoshoot for a band. Any project I get that involves photography I think I'll love
Join us next week for another interview!
