- Saga Sig, tell us a bit about yourself and your life.
I'm currently living in London but I grew up in Iceland and my hometown
is Reykjavik, where my family lives. I moved to London two years ago to study fashion photography and now I am on my third and last year in
London College of Fashion. I live in London with my boyfriend Elli (acbananas.com) who
is an illustrator and artist. I love my family and friends. I love to read, to go to art galleries, listen to music, watch films, sit at cafés and read my books. I love spend time in libraries to get inspiration or look at magazine and blogs. I am inspired by so many things but my main inspiration is all the amazing people around me.
- Where do you find inspiration for your creativity?
I am very inspired by many things, but my main inspiration is the wonderful people that surround me every day.
How did your acquaintance with photography started?
It started way back, I lived in a beautiful national park called
Thingvellir, its one of the most beautiful places in Iceland and my mother was a ranger there. Color and the silence of the park seemed unbelievable. I was
only eight years and wanted to capture the beauty forever so my
parents gave me a 35 mm canon camera and since then I have always been
taking photos. When I was 18 year old I decided that I wanted to be a
photographer, so here I am!
How would you describe your photography style?
In some words: nature, feminine, fashion, colorful, dreamy, fairy-tale
like, fun, films, mystics, landscape...
- Are you more in to fashion photography or in artistic photography?
I do like both. You can create your own worlds both with fashion
and artistic photography. Fashion photography is fun because you
work with so many people to create an image, but artistic photography
is good when you want to work alone on something personal.
- What is your biggest dream?
It want to be healthy and happy surrounded by my family, live and work
What do you want to wish to our readers?
To believe in themselves always, and I wish that their dreams come true.
