Interview#28 BriAnne Wills
How old are you?  I just turned 30!
Where are you from?  Portland, Oregon.
What kind of photographic equipment do you use? I shoot primarily with a Canon 5d, but I love film so I usually have my Yashica T4 on hand as a second camera.
What do you do when you are not shooting? I’m usually planning my next shoot. But in terms of life outside of photography I travel and spend time with my husband and cat.
What was the first photograph you were proud of? Wow. This is a tough question. Especially because the photos I was first proud of don’t necessarily make me proud now. There is one photo I took of the first model I ever worked with about 7 years ago. She’s sitting in her car waiting for the rain to stop in between shooting and the windows are fogged up. There’s a little heart drawn in the window and a small star tattoo on her hand. It was perfect so I snapped a quick photo not really thinking anything of it. Later, when I was going through all the photos from our shoot, it ended up being my favorite. I’m still proud of it today.
How much preparation is there behind your photographs?  I usually work with a team so there’s always hair, makeup and wardrobe, but there is very little preparation on my part. I shoot with available light so I don’t lug around heavy lighting equipment. I like to keep things simple and natural.
Have you ever done sacrifices or compromises as a photographer? It’s common to make compromises when working for a client. You might have to do things their way to keep them happy, but I do my best to retain my style. After all, that is why they hired me.
What is your safe place? My bed with my husband and cat by my side.
Do you have any obsessions?  Right now I’m obsessed with my cat. Is it obvious? She was a stray kitten we saved after she fell from a tree near our apartment a few weeks ago. We’ve been nursing her back to health. She’s quite the project, but we’re in love. I’m also obsessed with seeing as much of the world as possible. Traveling is so addictive and there are still so many countries I am dying to visit.
Is there an artist you’ll gladly collaborate with or that you regard with esteem?  There are so many photographers that I regard in high esteem, such as Ellen Von Unwerth, Camilla Akrans and Tim Walker.
▶You are an american photographer living in Kiev, and before that you have been in Shanghai and Prague. How living in such different places has influenced your photography?  Traveling is hugely inspirational for me and living in different countries has broadened my perspective and allowed me to grow as an artist. I was feeling creatively stifled back home, but now I’m surrounded by a new and different environment. It seems like the possibilities for shoots are endless.
