KARA L WAY PHOTOGRAPHY

Posted on 17 July 2017

KARA L WAY PHOTOGRAPHY

Since we began in 2016, we've had to pleasure of working with one of South East Queensland's best photographers; Kara L Way. Kara's work includes everything from Family and Fashion to Big Life Events like Weddings and Engagements, and we have been very lucky to have Kara on board to communicate our vision and style here at LiberalStyle.

As much a free spirit as us, Kara has been able to capture our unique style with ease! An eye for detail, and the ability to position models to get that perfect angle, Kara has been a wealth of knowledge and inspiration, helping us to polish the LiberalStyle 'look'. Not only that, but working with such a beautiful soul, Kara's bright personality makes our photo shoots a breeze!

We sat down with Kara to ask her how she captures that 'perfect picture' and what's coming up next for the talented Photographer.

Kara is that creative person everyone needs as part of their team.  She is able to take a vision and produce it into a series of amazing photo's to tell our perfect story! "

Lets get the obvious question out of the way! How do you take such beautiful photographs?

Thank you. My favourite type of photography is portraiture. I love shooting people and capturing their candidness and those little authentic gestures and facial expressions that are fleeting yet reveal so much about another human. There’s so much depth and beauty in the human face and human interactions, I think I just grab hold of and save forever what already exists naturally in others.

What made you decide to take up Photography?

I have a mother who is a prolific gatherer of images, so I have learnt from her the value in capturing fleeting moments that could possibly lost forever if it wasn’t for a camera in hand.

How important is location when taking photo's?      

Location can be super helpful with shoots. I certainly love a scenic or decorative backdrop as I think if you can include this in your composure of a shot it helps communicate a story about the foregrounded subject and their interests.

What has been your favourite shoot to date?

My favourite shoot to date was a Patrick Demarchelier inspired shoot called “D I S R U P T O R” that I collaborated with Art Director and Stylist Yasmine Rogers and model Ali McNiven on. Think Kate Moss circa 1990’s images. Yasmine pulled the entire shoot together and Ali was a complete professional and one of my all time favourite images came from this shoot. Having a dynamite team of professionals to work with always makes for beautiful images in the end.

This might be hard to answer, but can you share with us which two pictures are your favourite from your collection and explain why?

An image from D I S R U P T O R titled “eyes” is my favourite image. It is a crisp black and white image that’s simple, timeless and uninterrupted. The natural wind picked up just at the right time on location at this shoot and it felt like the creative gods were colliding all at once to help me out to produce that shot.

We know you have just been shooting on location in Hawaii and Bali!!  What were you shooting there? 

In Hawaii I was shooting a wedding of a couple whose engagement photos I created a couple of years earlier.  And I went to Bali in a collaborative shoot with Nat Winter from Society of Now.  Both were amazing beachside locations.

Where is your favourite shoot location?

At this stage of my photography, its less about the location and more about the people I am shooting with. If I have a great team of help around me that makes any shoot my favourite.

What's next for you this year?

At this stage I have more family portraits to capture and a wedding locked in for later this year, however I’m hoping to move more into “on location” fashion editorial shoots. Having shot many stylised editorials over the past few years, I’d really like to add more of these to my portfolio.

We feel so lucky to have Kara on board with Liberal Style and want to share the love with anyone who also appreciates amazing art!
