Maria Popova by Sergey Korolkov for VIPA Lingerie

"I engaged in photography in the beginning of 2009 and it’s not just my hobby. Photo shooting is my passion or even more. I’d like to show people being at their best. I want them to look gorgeous so I add charm, glamour and some style. I’m not really fond of a traditional photoshoot. It’s boring. I prefer so-called «an esthetics of a casual shot». I try to create an atmosphere where a person feels at ease. It’s the main secret of my photos. I dislike posing and the camera between me and a model, that’s why I try to do my the best in order to make this fact unnoticeable. At this moment all occurs in a flash. It’s needed to catch the person’s essence for fraction of a second. This method allows me to make a lot of magnificent pictures, it is colorful, attractive, reflecting you in the best display of happiness." - Sergey Korolkov

Cameron Hammond is a Sydney-based photographer. He states, “I’ve always loved cameras but my inspiration for fashion photography came when I was working as a television cameraman, I was filming a popular reality TV show about modeling and was inspired by the fashion photographers. I thought to myself 'that looks fun, I could do that!' I knew right then I wanted to work in an industry that encouraged creativity whilst capturing beauty. All I’m really trying to achieve with my photography is to create images that can hopefully give someone the same feeling I get when I see a photo I love. Looking at nice photos is one of the purest joys for me and if I can give another person that same feeling then the photo is a success” (Interview with Life Without Andy).

Cora Keegan for Stoned Immaculate Vintage by Aaron Feaver

Feaver states, "I've always been interested in photography…my dad had an old Canon camera he kept in a metal padded briefcase with a few lenses, and he'd use it to take family pictures, pictures of our trips, stuff like that. I was fascinated by all the dials and levers, all the mechanical geekery of it. Later I paid my way through college working at a little mom 'n pop camera store in Portland, Oregon. This was the 90s, before digital photography had become mainstream, and our shop specialized in repairing professional camera gear…Hasselblad's, large format, professional Polaroids, etc. Part of my job was testing out all the cameras after they were repaired, so I learned how to use every possible kind of camera. I never thought about photography as a career until I was working as a web designer at a little studio in Venice, California, 5 or 6 years ago, when I started getting interested in the world of fashion photography. I'd never gotten much satisfaction out of (or been very good at) the landscapes and still life's I'd been taking pictures of, but here was a whole new subject…people…that I thought would be endlessly engaging" (Interview with Lust Nation).
