A JASMINE TEA WITH SIMONA
What is your drink of choice?
Jasmine tea is a long time favourite, but I also love a good peach ice tea!
Tell us a little bit about yourself?
I’m Simona, a photographer and all round creative. My biggest loves in life are being in nature, watching Seinfeld, singing and dancing to Haim, sipping on some tea, playing with my nephew, and taking photos of course.
I’m based in Canberra and travel to Sydney quite regularly for work. I studied photography at CIT where I found my passion for Fashion Photography.
And most recently I‘ve gotten into graphic design! I have been loving creating illustrations and learning as much as I can. I think it’s important to always be learning something new whether that’s in your field or something totally different. Speaking of, I’ll be going back to uni this year to study design. I’m so excited about this and can’t wait to see where it takes me!
Tell us about Simona Photography and how it came to be?
Simona Photography focuses on high-end fashion, lifestyle, and product photography.
My business was born while I was in my final year at CIT. An assignment required us to make our own ‘fake’ business including a website and branding. Since completing my Bachelor’s degree I have been working hard to turn Simona Photography into what it is now.
How can we support Simona Photography?
Book a shoot with me! Since restrictions have eased in the ACT, I have begun taking bookings for photoshoots. I also have a wide range of prints available online (with more to come soon!) atwww.simonarphotography.com/shop
Any advice for those wanting to turn their dream into a reality?
Just get started! Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there, work hard for what you want, and in doing so you will find your style, niche, and build a solid network around you.
