In several of my articles I used pictures taken by Nat Chittamai, a wedding and lifestyle photographer in the Dallas and Forth Worth area in Texas. I am excited to have had the opportunity to interview him and tell you more about him!
Tell us a little bit about yourself
My name is Nat Chittamai and I am originally from Chiang Mai, Thailand. I have an accounting degree, a Master’s of Business Administration, and I am currently obtaining an associate’s degree in Commercial Photography. You already know of course, but I like taking pictures! I take pictures for a living but also just for fun. In my spare time, I climb and practice yoga at a rock climbing gym. I do this 3 to 4 times a week. And, oh, I want to have more tattoos. 😉
What is your favorite quote?
Beauty can be seen in all things
– Matt Hardy
What city or place in the United States would you recommend us to see?
Without a doubt, Dallas and specifically the Dallas skyline. I currently live in Dallas and the skyline is simply beautiful! I completely understand why the skyline was ranked the number one in the world in 2014.
How did you get into photography?
I started photography as a hobby in 2009. The rest is history. 😉
As a photographer, do you look differently at the world?
Yes, I do believe I see the world differently than non-photographers, at least in a photographic perspective.
Who is your favorite photographer?
My favorite photographer is the Canadian photographer Joey Lawrence. His skills and ambition are amazing!
What is the most challenging part about being a photographer?
All your clients are beautiful, but it is your job to find the beauty in people and capture it and present it to the audience. I believe there is no excuse not to find one, which is why I agree with Matt Hardy’s quote.
Name three qualities a good photographer should have:
What type of photoshoots do you enjoy doing the most?
I enjoy doing bridal and engagement shoots, because they are short sessions and I can bring a lot of creativity into my work.
What is the most beautiful picture you ever took?
I really like this picture below, especially because it was not easy to take. The parents only let go of the girls’ hands for about 5 seconds, so I shot pictures as quick as a machine gun! 😉
If I want to become a photographer, what is the first step I should take?
Take pictures and post them!
Will you always do photography?
Yes, I definitely think so. Photography is way too much fun to quit. We certainly would never want you to quit. 😉
I thank Nat for his time to have this interview with me. Here are some of my favorite pictures taken by him:
