RL: WHAT IS IT ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY THAT DRAWS YOU?
NAOE: Wow, how do I express that?!? I believe photography choose me. I still remember that day I picked up a camera (many moons ago). For me it is a very spiritual thing, creating. Through the lens, in the darkroom (which I do miss since digital is really taking over).
RL: AT THE BEGINNING OF YOUR CAREER DID YOU DO A LOT OF FREE PHOTO SHOOTS?
NAOE: Once I felt prepared to do professional work I did some research came up with a rate card and I was able to grow from there.
RL: WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FAVORITE PHOTOSHOOT?
NAOE: Each photo shoot is special, I wouldn’t say that one is my favorite or least favorite.
RL: WHAT NECESSARY STEPS SHOULD BEGINNING PHOTOGRAPHERS TAKE TO ADVANCE THEIR CAREERS TO THE NEXT LEVEL?
NAOE: Everyone’s journey is different. There is no Step 1, 2, 3. Live and breathe photography. Whether that be taking classes, self assignments, networking with other photographers, read, join professional trade associations.
RL: ANYONE CAN PICK UP A CAMERA, BUT HOW DOES ONE CAPTURE THE MOMENT? OR RATHER, HOW DO YOU?
NAOE: Well I go into a “zone”. I don’t have a better explanation than that.
RL: WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING TO CAPTURE IN YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY?
NAOE: Moments that express sensuality (not to be confused with sexuality). Imagery that speaks, moves, that touches souls. It moves, it startles, it ignites passion. The heart of humankind; the essence and fabric of life, soul, spirit, and sensuality. Capture the inner person that express the precious gift we all are.
RL: WHAT SHOULD CLIENTS LOOK FOR IN A PHOTOGRAPHER?
NAOE: Someone who is capable of capturing what they envision as well as something they may have never thought of.
RL: WHAT SHOULD CLIENTS NOT DO DURING A PHOTOSHOOT?
NAOE: Clients should not NOT communicate with photographer. Communication is key in making sure everyone walks away happy. In addition to that, the client should also have a degree of trust and not interfere while photographer is shooting. If at all possible, wait between takes.
RL: ANY CURRENT DEALS THAT YOU ARE OFFERING RIGHT NOW? WHAT ARE YOUR RATES?
NAOE: Rates are determined by several factors (type of shoot, usage, location, etc.) Readers should contact me at http://www.naoepix.com to discuss their needs/project.
RL: WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON NOW AND WHAT’S NEXT FOR YOU?
NAOE: Stay tuned…you haven’t heard the last of Naoe.
