Despite only doing fashion photography as a hobby, Veronika Goll has already been internationally recognised for her amazing works. She is an inspiration to all of those out there who love doing photography and letting others see their art. We hope you all take a look at what she has accomplished and give her some love!
How did you get to where you are now in your career?
Hi, actually I am an interior architect! I like seeing nice things, nice proportions and great colors. In may 2016 I bought myself, out of a belly Feeling, a camera and have started to discover the world with her. I fall so deeply in love with all the magic I found in the photography world and I'm so glad to capture all these special moments. Quite quickly I started to put fashion and models in scene. It is an incredible feeling to see the results. I can implement so many creative ideas. I would never have expected. Meanwhile photography takes so much of my life and fulfils me completely. Many tell me that they love my pictures because they are full of emotions.
How did your education prepare you for the future?
I haven't taken any photography courses.
What person has been your inspiration in life? Who is your hero?
As many probably say: my parents. They showed me that you can do all you want in life, if you just have the endurance. I have learned a lot from my children as well - to see the world on another, unaffected world. It does not have to be right or wrong. It just has to feel good
Do you feel like you’ve met your goals and are successful?
I only started half a year ago with the photography and I can say that I am more than surprised by my current "success". I never had the intention to be famous. Now that more and more people are attracted to me and want to be in front of my camera: of course, my motivation has grown to expand more and more. My dream ist to be able to live somewhere doing photography, so the hobby maybe will become a job.
If you had to do it over again, what would you change?
Nothing. I'm one of the people who do not regret anything. There are no wrong decisions for me. It is only important what you make of it.
What advice would you give someone who is young and wants to have a position such as yours one day?'
Just go for it. It's hard work but it is worth it. In the end of the day, you should look in the mirror and you should be able to say: YES, I do what I love. The world is your playground. Go outside and conquer the world.
How do you stay inspired?
I just go through the world with open eyes. I let myself be guided by colors, shapes, music, people, smells, haptics and more. If you're open, it's easy for you. The new people who i get to know always help me to see things differently and keep me inspired.
What photography related things do you recommend?
Get yourself a good and light intensity camera and objective. I'm not a fan of further technology. If you have a good camera, which makes good pictures even in low light, you are motionless. You can quickly change your perspective. It is always good to move freely. When you use flash and stative, you are stiff and firm. That hampers you in your creativity.
What's your favourite camera?
I'm totally in love with my Canon EOS D6.
