Nicholas Makhonuk is a photographer; here is a link to his website:
Q: What made you interested in photography?
A: Photography peaked my interest once the iPhone 4 was out.
I was about 17 at the time and Instagram had also been released. The mixture of exploring new places and being inspired to use my phone as a camera had it really easy to start photographing.
Q: What kind of training have you had?
A: All my training has been through on the field, youtube or learning from a few other photographers on the job.
Q: What kinds of things do you like to photograph?
A: I enjoy city scapes and landscape for personal photography. Street photography can be fun also. As far as clients and events I prefer to photograph weddings because of the many emotions that go with it.
Q: What do you hope to express through your work?
A: I hope to capture beautiful images and moments naturally. I want to make sure when you get your images you say wow I remember exactly that moment like it just happened.
Q: What kind of day job do you have and how does it influence your work?
A: I do photography full time.
Q: Who are some of your influences?
A: I am influenced by conversations, the places I visit and the books I read.
Q: What have you done to promote yourself?
A: My promotion has just been the typical online marketing :facebook, instagram etc.
Q: What do you like about living in San Francisco?
A: I am no longer in the bay area but in Los Angeles. I moved here because of the huge media industry and great weather 🙂
Q: What would you change about it?
A: I would make Los Angeles have less traffic. Uber pool is a bit of a start for this problem.
Q: What is the oddest thing you have ever photographed?
A: I photograph odd times often. Often there is a silly expression that I capture and think if only this person knew how they look like. and then they do:)
