Portrait of Coldplay's singer Chris Martin... interview with professional photographer ANITA ZVONAR.

Today we have a really special guest- internationally published professional photographer ANITA ZVONAR, based in Toronto, Canada. She worked for magazines (People magazine, Readers Digest…), advertisements, record labels etc. She photographed musicians such as Paul McCartney, Gwen Stefani, Metallica, Kid Rock, Dandy Warhols, Dresden Dolls… and many more.

Here's her recipe how to become a successful professional portrait photographer: "Keep learning and practicing.  The industry has a lot of competition, so try to be patient.  It takes years to develop a career, and even then, there can be slow months or years depending on the economy.  Develop a portrait style that represents you best… which takes time, but it happens."

Plese visit http://www.anitazvonar.com/music.html to see portrait of CHRIS MARTIN.

1Q) Can you please tell us the story behind this portrait? How you took it and why you choose to shoot this person?
This portrait of Christ Martin was taken for Chart Music Magazine in Toronto .  I was sent on assignment to shoot him while Coldplay was playing a gig in Toronto for a couple nights.



2Q) What photography gear you used here and why? What is usually in your photo bag?
For this portrait, I used my Bronica SQB medium format film camera.  This portrait was taken about 6 years ago, when film was still sometimes used for magazines.
My photo bag has a tone of stuff in it…..extra lens, light meter, extra batteries,  tripod, blankets,  stool or mini ladder, and large strobe lights in another bag if needed.
3Q) What do you love most about shooting portraits?
I like meeting and photographing new people. Everybody is unique and it’s interesting seeing how people express themselves in front of the camera. Some people need more coaching then others, but that’s part of my job.

4Q) Do you consider yourself mostly as a “portrait” photographer?
Yes, my work is all portrait based….whether be for magazines, advertising, music promotion, etc.

5Q) Do you work with available light or do you use additional lightning often?
Both, depends on whether it’s an indoor or outdoor shoot.  If outdoors, I’ll often use my large reflector as fill light and to create a nice glow on subjects.  Sometimes I may use the camera flash for some fill.

6Q) What/Who are your photography muses and influences?
I was larger influenced by magazine fashion photographers in the 80’s and 90’s, such as Bruce Weber, Ellen Vons Unswerth, Irvin Penn, and Herb Ritts.

7Q) Any tip for taking better portraits?
Watch your light.  A strong composition combined with learning to manipulate the light around you is key.  And don’t be afraid of getting up close to your subjects. 














Thank You, Anita!
