At Stella Cove we truly do love all of the photographers, Instagram influencers, and models that capture our girls and boys swimwear in an amazing fashion. We have been so privileged to work with Agata Zwierzycka (@the3of.us) and her son as she shoots amazing candid moments in our boys swimwear! A part of us working together is that we had the opportunity to have a fun interview and get inside the mind of a great artist! As she hits different spots to shoot, she has made our boys swimwear shine bright. Yet, the beauty does surpass the photo and makes it way into the photographer. This is how the interview went with Agata:
Agata Zwierzycka Interview
Who would you like to photograph? Living / historical person, real or imaginary? Why would you want to shoot that person and how would you like to shoot them?
Ideally a photo session should be an experience for both the photographer and the model. My perfect person to photograph would be someone who is present in the moment, aware of their own emotions and connected with their surrounding world. Also, someone who lets me in and allows me to assist in telling their story. I love nature, so someone who appreciates the beauty of this world would naturally be easier for me to relate to and work with.
An ordinary person can be extraordinary in their own ways as long as they are fascinated by the location, the light they are in, the sounds they hear in the background…Children display their curiosity, excitement and fascination beautifully, but there are also adults who can do that as well. My son has a strong sense of adventure and loves visiting new places. This is what makes his heart happy and brings a smile to my face. I also get inspired by seeing love and excitement between couples, parents and children.
If you had to pick one photo which has moved you the most in your life, which one would it be?
Again, I do not think that there is one picture that I can point to and say "this is the one". I love when a photograph moves me, when it takes me on a journey to the moment when it was captured, when it makes me feel a certain way. I love when the light and tones reflect the emotions captured in the picture and give me the feeling I am a part of that world for the time being.
Who would you like to shoot you and why?
I am pretty torn as to who I would like to have photograph me. I feel like I would get the most out of the session if I let some of my photographer friends be on the other side of the camera because the emotional connection would definitely be there. However, I also would love to see how famous photographers like Lisa Holloway, Magda Berny or Elena Shumilova work their magic without having any kind of initial relationship with me.
What would you say to your younger self?
If I had a chance to have a little chat with my younger self I would definitely tell myself to relax and enjoy life a little more, spend more time on things that make me truly happy and not necessarily worry so much about the future all the time. Life has a wonderful way of working itself out.
What is the best moment in shooting and what is the most challenging?
Photography requires patience. There is no way you can rush a photo shoot and get that genuine expression you are going for. I like getting people in the right light without staging my shoot but that always brings risks. Sometimes I get the right expression but not the right angle, other times, the light is falling beautifully, wrapping itself around my subjects giving them a gorgeous glow but they sneeze or get distracted and move before I am able to take my shot. It is not always easy to match the perfect expression with the perfect light.
