Today we’d like to introduce you to Olya Helga.
Olya, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
All my life I been in the art industry first I started dancing professionally. I worked as a choreographer for a lot of projects and dance schools then seven years later I found myself in the photography. Now I think I have the best job ever. I am very creative I literally cannot imagine my life without art. Originally I am from Ukraine. I moved to the US a couple of years ago, and now I’m located in the South FL. I’m literally addicted to photography, and I really love what I am doing. Here’s the secret to become successful in any field: Do what you love and love what you do!
My favorite thing about taking photos is catching unique moments of happiness and emotions people express. I love vivid emotions and real bliss. That’s why I have such a passion for photography.
We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
My perspective as a photographer is more towards using naturalistic elements with an editorial vibe that makes it authentic and interesting at the same time. My process to create comes from many things; the clients’ wishes, photographs that move me, anything really. I take everything in and do my best to put my own unique tastes to elevate the image to something one of a kind but familiar. I really hope that my photography impacts the viewer in a way that transports them for that single moment to something dreamy and raw while still being visually delightful. I want them to see that reality with the right perspective can be beautiful and captivating.
Any advice or thoughts you’d like to share with prospective artists?
The backbone of any good photographer is incredibly knowledgeable about this craft as well as having a point of view. We are of the digital age where the internet has lots of information to build knowledge that will help improve your portfolio- a portfolio which should showcase your point of view. This doesn’t come out sacrifices, lack of sleep being the biggest I think. Ultimately, if you love it and push forward, you will make it.
Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
Nowadays, social media is a big thing. People can find me on Instagram, Facebook, I have my website too. I think it’s a very important thing for a professional photographer.
