Art & Life with Madina Kanzitdinova

Today we’d like to introduce you to Madina Kanzitdinova.

Madina, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
I was always attracted to shot. Shot, who living, talking. And I always took photos by the phone, by other people’s cameras and drew pictures. When we met, my future husband gave me to use his old Canon 500D. With it all started, I took my friends’ lenses and made commercial photo shoots with this camera. The main thing is to see the picture and the last model of the camera will be yours someday so I took pictures in Moscow for about a year. Upon arrival in California year ago, our old Canon died completely, and I had to buy a new camera-it was Canon EOS 5D Mark IV. And I use it to this day.

Can you give our readers some background on your art?
Photographers are catchers. Catchers of the moments. Professional moment catchers the moment .. it is like a Golden Snitch in Harry Potter 💫 And you must be the most skilled catcher to catch him we are some kind of wizard, don’t you think so? We help people remember themselves in their moments of joy. And it’s so wonderful. Because of such small caught Snitches consists life. And visual memory is much stronger than our event memory. Looking through the years on their photos, people again revive inside themselves those emotions and experiences that they experienced then. When their Golden Snitch was caught ✨☺️

Artists rarely, if ever pursue art for the money. Nonetheless, we all have bills and responsibilities and many aspiring artists are discouraged from pursuing art due to financial reasons. Any advice or thoughts you’d like to share with prospective artists?
At first, you need to be ready, that you will work for free. And a lot and the people will know about you. Then the commercial clients will go you do not need to invest in expensive camera at the beginning of your carrier: I started with the most simple one but I developed my style and studied and the client went. Learn, learn and learn again, never give up! And take creative projects even if all the days are crowded with commercial ones, allocate space and time for creativity ✨ it inspires and allows you to remember all causes for what you started working and move in this field ✨
