Dazed Digital - the online version of arts, culture, music and style magazine Dazed & Confused - just did a photography feature on rising lifestyle photographer (and a regular on my weekly muses and lenses photo feature) Brad Ogbonna. Obgonna, who recently made the move from Minnesota back to New York, showcases his work and answers questions for the mag.
Dazed Digital: Your style of work is very varied, shooting all kinds of subjects - What style of photography feels more natural to you?
Brad Ogbonna: Definitely lifestyle and editorial - photographing subjects in their natural state with little interference on my end is when I am most comfortable. Shooting friends and age-mates has been fun since there is already a rapport and familiarity present that makes capturing unique moments very easy, but the rush and excitement I get from shooting a person for the first time is second to none. I am always careful not to encroach on my subject’s space too much so that the photos will retain the individual’s style as much as possible.
