What is it that attracts you the most of what you have around you?  the people in my live are very important for my work. i'd like to take photos of my good friends. And the city, the urban live, has a strong attraction to me. I think a lot about questions why we built streets, houses, skyscraper, why we need so much concrete in our enviroment.
               
Tell us about your experience as  photographer what did it give you? For me, it is an possibility to picture the questions i mentioned in the previous answer.

Tell about exhibition if you ‘ve had any. My first was a group-exhibition in Braunschweig. After a little one in Duisburg and in Braunschweig, I put my first exhibition, called Projekt#Riga, in a real galery – the EinRaum5-7. We had an awesome vernissage with a great DJ and a lot of nice people had been there.
           

 Do you sell prints? How do you make it and where can someone buy? It is possible to buy my photobook at etsy (https://www.etsy.com/de/listing/181001395/projektriga?)

            
What was your most big success? I think it was this big exhibition last year and the publishment of the photoook, of course.
           
Favourite photographer. I am part of small group of german photographers. We are very different, but we have the same opinion about photography. They are an important inspiration for me.
            
Describe some of your projects My last big project was „Projekt#Riga“. I cycled 1700km from Braunschweig to Riga, Latvia. It was a great adventure and i gained many experiences. The output was the exhibion and the photobook.
            
Your main concept. That's a tricky question and very hard to answer. Maybe, it is my concept to show the world we are living in how it is really is – for me. I do not try to embelish anything in my work.
          
What is your occupation, job, interest besides photography. I am student at the technical university of Braunschweig. I am studying and working at the institute of hydraulic constructions. Water has a strong attraction for me.                       
Which advice would you give someone who wants to become a (professional) photographer? Try anything you want, try to find your way
          
Do you work as photographer? I woked has a photographer for my university and for a sports club. But most of my work, i do for me – not for the money.                                                           
 Your plans.
We will see, maybe a series about cyclist or about students of enviromental engineering.




Interview with photographer Daisy Walker

   
 What is it that attracts you the most of what you have around you?  
I am most inspired by concepts and themes I am exploring myself that somehow work their way into my photography. But otherwise I mainly work to incorporate light into all my images.



               Tell us about your experience as  photographer what did it give you?
I’m entirely self taught and starting shooting only 2 years ago so my experience has been fairly full on. I’ve managed to squeeze a lot in in 2 years and have continued to learn my style and hone my craft, which will continue to be an ongoing process.


                 Three adjectives to describe yourself.
Determined, passionate, funny.


                A film, a book and a song
Film: I am an incredibly imaginative person so I tend to lean towards interest in films that are strikingly emotive and story-like. I also work with the medium of film myself as an accompaniment to many of my editorials, and I tend to be struck by the choice of music in films so depending on my mood either The Lady in the Water or Empire of the Sun.
Book: Just Kids by Patti Smith

Song: Evil Woman by Electric Light Orchestra


              What camera do you use?  lense?
I mix between 35mm and medium format and tend to work off of a Nikon FM2 and Bronica ETRSi. Lenses depend on the situation.


             Tell about exhibition if you ‘ve had any.
I’m working on an exhibition displaying the natural beauty of the nude masculine and feminine form but collating the right imagery for it will take some time so there’s no plans to exhibit this year.
 


            Do you sell prints? How do you make it and where can someone buy?
No. Sorry!


            What was your most big success?
Shooting Lupita Nyong’o just before the Oscars, and shooting John Savage- he told me I was
 


           Favourite photographer.
Harley Weir.


            Your main concept.
Currently I’m working a lot of the role of men and women and that can be seen quite a lot in my work being published over the next few months.


           What is your occupation, job, interest besides photography.
I also write for various publications, such as The Debrief and Protein Journal and love tutoring in French and Spanish.

         
           Which advice would you give someone who wants to become a (professional) photographer?
Work hard to improve and never stop critiquing your work. Lastly, never give up. If it was easy, everyone would do it.


          Do you work as photographer? 
Yes I shoot portraits for The Debrief, Dazed & Confused and music artists as well working for a number of fashion clients.
