Tell us a little about yourself! (details or get declined)
Damona Art is a Belgian Artist/Photographer who's totally into Retro and Pinup. I'm photographing Pinup models since late 2010 and have grown to someone with my own style. I only work in themes and guide the models through the shoot.
My inspiration of Pinup and Glamour comes from style icons such as Dita Von Teese, Bernie Dexter, Gil Elvgren, Ginger Rogers, Marilyn Monroe, Bettie Page etc. I often find myself finding inspiration from the smallest and simplest things.
I would not necessarily describe myself as a 'professional' Pinup photographer, but rather as someone who is professional in my approach, and passionate about what I do; regardless of whether I am having a bad day or not. I make my plans, set my goals, and work towards achieving them, and that is what I think 'professionalism' in one's work is all about.
A piece of paper does not make a person a professional; especially if they do not act in a professional manner. Having fun, love and respect really means a lot to me, and I like to incorporate those qualities into my work, and with the models I work with. Anything is possible with the right mind-set, and a lot of hard work.
I'm a very positive thinking woman and someone who is always happy and laughing. Sometimes people think I'm a little crazy...well maybe I am a little...I think it's healthy, and great whenever I get the opportunity to use this positive energy within my shoots, which always makes the shoots successful and fun.
I'm also regulary featured in magazines. Always trying to stretch my limits and to achieve the best quality in my photos, served to you with the best care. Therefore I joined this community.
