Alexandra Grablewski is one gifted photographer. Born in New York City, she kept true to her roots with an education in photography from NYU and continuing her photo love by assisting local photographers. It's no surprise I'm not the only fan of her work... Alexandra is the Queen of books, having photographed over 30 books!
Yet, photography isn't her only talent. Alexandra loves to sew, knit and use power tools (yes, power tools!)... which should come in handy with her current renovations on her soon-to-be Brooklyn home. (That's where her picture was taken).
Alexandra's portfolio has been on my link list since this blog started. If you are not already familiar with her work, you'll now know why I'm such a fan.
Here is our interview, for you:
12. Do you think it is important to assist photographers before venturing out on your own?
Yes, I assisted a few still-life and food photographers and I really think that it was in many ways much more applicable to the business than what I was able to learn in class. At least for me it was a much more gratifying way to learn hands on, and a great way to get a good spectrum of how different artists work as everyone sort of develops their own methods.
Thank you, Alexandra! Readers, please show your appreciation by leaving a comment!
