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.
