Zoe Berkovic is a true inspiration to so many artists. He work is fresh, clean, vibrant and fun. I have yet to find an artist like her – an artist who turns everyday chaos and childhood fun into art. It is authentic, it is creative… it is inspiring.

Introducing Zoe Berkovic in her own words:

Once I was a little girl with unruly wavy hair, a sprinkling of freckles, a joyous love for life, and an imagination gone wild.
I grew up.  Mostly.   My hair is tame.  My imagination, not so much.
Life happened.   I became a school teacher, a wife, and a mom.
I also discovered a way to take the ideas in my imagination and turn them into something others can see. I found a way to bring my love of laughter, a good story, and childhood joy into it.
I am blessed.

1.) How long did it take for you to find your niche  and once you did – did you decline any work that you were not passionate about?

Every time anyone asks me I need to start counting in my head. It feels like forever, yet I still feel like I am so new at this in so many ways. I officially started shooting other families in 2007. (I think. haha!)  Kids are my niche but I am taking a little break from family photography to concentrate on my commercial work.

2.) Tell us about your favorite lens and why it is #1 in your camera bag over your other lenses.

I don’t really have any favorite gear. I am way more into having a vision than having the finest equipment out there. As long as it works, is sharp, and is Pro level I am good.

3.) What is your favorite image and why?

My favorite image is always the next one I will create. I shoot so much and am always thinking and dreaming of the next shoot I want to do.

4.) Do you have any tricks or tips that you want to share with us?

Work hard.

5.) Name one person who you would love to photograph?

I am a huge tennis fan and play often. I would love to photograph Kim Clijsters with daughter and husband.

6.) What was your original gear and when did you start upgrading your equipment?

I started shooting anyone that was willing to get in front of my camera with a point and shoot. I set it on Manual did a custom white balance and shot away. I then started charging small fee for my time until I was able to buy better gear.

7.) What has been your proudest moment in your business?

I have had many moments I was proud of and lots of moments where I had to push myself to try harder. I do vividly remember calling up my sister after shooting the first stranger family I did squealing with excitement.I shot them with a point and shoot and did selective color on the big lolly pop. (blush.)

It was a defining moment though. I realized I was onto something much bigger than I thought. I am still somewhat proud of those images. (deeper blush.)

8.) What is on your Bucket list – It does not have to be photography related?

lots and lots of cute shoes for both myself and my kids.

And we all love a peek into the world of prop so here is a glimpse  into her prop space.
