More about Lena K....

What do you love about your job?

Making pictures may take you to new places, allows you to meet new people, to make new discoveries, and learn about the world, even without going anywhere far. Photography can be a tool for self-expression, self-reflection, spreading information and story-telling. I love to be a photographer because the medium is so rich.

What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?

When taking portraits, I try to shoot in a neutral way when a person can just comely be him/herself unless something specific is required by the purpose of the shoot. My main purpose is to make a person be comfortable in front of the camera. When shooting events, I prefer a photo reportage mode, when I am catching what is happening around without interfering and interupting.
