Discover the cool interview we did with Frank Nader!
ModelManagement: How did you know photography was your vocation?
Frank Nader: First, I wanted to be an art director and illustrator and went to the School of Graphic Arts…during this time photography, touched me a lot more, because it’s “always” real, a moment and a document of life.
MM: How did your childhood in Liberia inspire your work?
FN: I guess, growing up in a total different country than Switzerland, made me open minded…but also to keep my eyes open 😉
MM: Your photos of Cuba are splendid! Why did you choose to shoot on this island? Do you have an anecdote about it?
FN: To be honest, I was there on vacation for 3 weeks and had my cameras on me, 24/7. I wanted to experience a different culture…it was very interesting to see how the people get along and live over there. I love to travel…it inspires me a lot!
MM: Do you have an unforgettable memory from one of your photo shoots?
FN: Yes, but it’s top secret 😉
MM: You are part of Modelmanagement.com’s Close-up Magazine, what advantages do you find on being part of a Magazine like this one?
FN: I’ve received quite some emails from all over the world, so far…positive feedback… we will see 🙂
MM: You’ve worked with famous brand, including Mercedes and Swatch! Could you give other photographers some tips on how to stay successful in the industry?
FN: As a photographer, one always has to be on the run and one also needs luck…”have the right connections”. Photography is a matter of taste, like music, art, movies, etc. Anybody can like or dislike your photos!
MM: On which social media people can view your work?
