Ep. 033: Felix Kunze | Be Inspired Photography Podcast
Portrait photographer Felix Kunze on the Be Inspired Photography Podcast.
In this week’s show, we chat with portrait photographer Felix Kunze about following your gut, standing out from the crowd and developing your own style of photography.
Felix Kunze’s Bio:
Felix Kunze is a commercial and editorial portrait, fine art and advertising photographer.
Born in Berlin, he grew up in Sussex, England and now lives in Brooklyn. His accent is almost impossible to distinguish. Felix blasted off in his career with an internship with Annie Leibovitz that later turned into assisting opportunities with the top photographers on earth.
He now focuses on creating beautiful portraits of all sorts of people, mostly looking for people of substance with strong personalities.
As an educator, my work on CreativeLIVE he has focused on helping hobbyists and professionals alike completely rethink lighting from the ground up. By empowering them, rather than talking at them, he has carved an unmatched style and reputation as a teacher.
