Christian Oblak is an experienced portrait and food photographer, who is well trained in a studio environment but not limited to those. Very customer orientated and always an eye for details is exactly what his customers love about him. Organised, punctual and short turn around times are only a few key strengths. Specialising in everyday portraits, from corporate, family, model portfolio building or exotic dancing are examples of his capabilities as well as the different aspects of food photography.
I love to watch the reaction of my clients. When they browse the photos and don't realise that I am actually watching them. The happiness and joy in their faces gives me the best return ever with this job.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done many outdoor portraits for models who wanted to build up their portfolios. Some of them were actually living longer in this city than me, but I was able to surprise so many of them with my excellent knowledge of locations and show them some hidden places which they were able to enjoy. On the other hand I have done so many studio shots, where I try to not only be the photographer but also have a good conversation going, getting to understand my client and then realise their actual needs of photos. I love to meet people and to socialise with everyone. A photoshoot can be truly a social experiment and be fun for everyone involved.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
Unfortunately I have not received any as such. I have never applied for a magazine or any competition. I love to provide to my clients and those photos taken are for them only.
