Artist of the Month: Rafał Bojar

 

It's time to learn a little bit more about the polish artist Rafał BojarRafał has been captivating us in the past weeks with a new approach to blogging weddings and storytelling. With the combination of his incredible imagery, we can safely say that Rafał is currently one of the most creative and unique wedding photographers out there. 

His emotional approach to capture lovers in all different situations helps him to stand out in the crowd. He is currently using a customized version of LXC to achieve his haunting look.

How old are you and where are you from?

Hello, my name is Rafał Bojar and I am 32 years old. I am a photographer living in Warsaw, Poland.

Tell us a little bit about your life in the moment?

My life is not much different than the lives of others with a small exception. I often travel and plan future trips all of the time. I am passionate about photographing intimate sessions and small weddings organized in a slightly alternate way.

How did you end up being a photographer?

My journey began a couple of years ago, when I was working for an airline. I was working as a flight attendant for 7 years. During that time, I had the opportunity to visit many captivating corners of the world.

There were times where my stays abroad took as long as up to 7-14 days. At that time I figured out that it would be cool to take pictures of those places. And that’s how my adventure with photography started.

I used to take pictures of landscapes at the beginning. After some time I decided to learn how to photograph people. I took some photography workshops that gave me a solid knowledge basis. The only thing left was to forge that knowledge into experience. When I began to feel comfortable while photographing others, one of my friends asked me if I would like to take photos of his wedding in France, in a beautiful place.

Obviously, I was afraid at the beginning that I may not handle this. However, I try to live my life according to the rule that one can’t be afraid of new challenges. It is them that shape our character.

Where do you see yourself in 20 years?

It is an interesting question. Not many people can answer that honestly, because how could they foresee their own future? The thing that I would like to see the most is myself doing something that is important to other people.

Currently, it is telling stories by using photographs. It is something that gives me incredible motivation and happiness. Being a witness of someone’s love, seeing real and frank feelings - these are amazing things. I’d love to do what I do as long as other people allow it.

What gear are you currently using?

I am a minimalist when it comes to my gear. It is a Nikon system and 2 body D750. Additionally, I carry in my bag the following lenses: Sigma 35mm 1.4 ART, Nikon 58mm 1.4, Nikon 45mm 2.8, and Nikon 85mm 1.8. My whole gear fits in a Venque Campro Black backpack.

What advice could you give out to a new starting photographer?

If I could give someone the most important piece of advice it would definitely be to learn from those, who you admire the most. I have taken part in many workshops during the last 2 years. It allowed me to incredibly spread my wings and open my eyes to new things that I didn’t know existed.

Did the LLF community changed the way you see or shoot weddings?

Thanks to LLF I had a chance to meet great people. I think that it is an awesome community of individuals who are inspired and supported by one another. Thanks to LLF, people from all around the world were able to get familiar with my work.

What plans do you still have for this year?

I have a couple of intimate weddings planned for this year. Some of them in Iceland. It is the place of my soul. I am also going to the USA for the first time. I am going to drive through California and get to Oregon. I am definitely going to visit Portland as well. I would also like to rest a little bit and make plans for the next year, which looks like it is going to be amazing. Together with my friend we are planning to organize rather unusual workshops, but you’ll definitely hear about them in LLF in the future.
