We are going to introduce you another interesting and experienced photographer from Serbia. Dusko Lukovic was born 1972 in Cacak. Already since 1995 he is engaged in photography and participates in exhibitions since 2004, when he became a member of the Photo Cinema Club " Cacak" and the Photo Association of Serbia. Take a look at his amazing photos and read the interview with him.
I am 43 years old. I was born and raised in Čačak (Serbia). I still live there. Besides photography I am a web designer as well.
Have you been involved in the arts in some form other than photography?
When I was a child, I used to draw a lot, especially portraits. I guess that doing that as a child is somehow reflected on my present preferences in photography.
I like working with models a lot so I guess that I can say that I draw ideas from different magazines, such as Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issues, Vogue etc. Also from Victoria’s Secret photo shoots and many more.
Could you share with us how you first became interested in photography?
Well, it all started at a really young age. I always had a camera with me wherever I went to take photographs of landscapes, which I was infatuated by. The admiration for photography stuck with me for many years and has constantly grown since then.
What equipment are you using now and with what did you get started? what is your favorite lens?
My first camera was LOMO Smena 8m and currently I am using Nikon D600 and I have two favorite lenses, one is 85mm f1.8 and 135mm f/2 DC.
Firstly, I have to thoroughly organize every photo shoot, from the location to the choice of models and agreements with the assistants, stylists, hairdressers etc. Then, after a successful photo shoot I go through the photographs carefully, choose the best ones and retouch them in photoshop.
Do you see a particular influence, be it a photographer or school on your work? Any subject that attracts you?
There are a lot of world renowned photographers about whose works I have a really high opinion and I wouldn’t like to single out just one. As you haven’t noticed from the interview so far, it’s fashion photography (hahaha).
What would you say characterizes your work in comparison to other photographers?
I would say that I always go for quality rather than quantity. I deliver smaller amount of photographs than most of the other photographers would but the selection I choose to present is embroidered with dedication, work, and for photography
