Some might say ‘you’re just born with it.’ In my case, I guess I can say that as a writer and photographer, you have to bring a quality of curousity with you in order to do your job. Even when I think way back I’ve always loved exploring new things, getting a glimpse of the production or the behind the scene. When I was a child, I loved to draw, play music or take pictures. The passion for photography hasn’t changed and with the time I also found interest in telling story through words and I added the writing.
Berlin Fashion Week Calling
Not long ago I’ve been invited to Berlin Fashion Week to take pictures backstage at Pearly Wong’s show. The one thing that I always say about backstage photography is that this is really the place where the magic happens. There’s tons of people, like make-up artists, hair stylists and people involved in the organizing process who help making the designer’s visions a reality. I personally love photographing backstage a whole lot more than photographing shows, because it really allows me to share my individual point of view, whereas at shows I can’t really move and all the pictures look pretty much the same as from everybody else, you know what I mean?
