I’ve seen Noah Kalina’s photographer published throughout the internets from time to time, but I didn’t know anything about him. His rich history of always pursuing photography, never doing anything other than photography, and finding a way to make a career out of it.
Go check out this interview with him here. It’s so good. And, seriously, an inspiration I needed right now.
For more than fifteen years, Noah Kalina has carved out a freelance career that manages to strike a balance between fine art and commercial photography. Here, the Barryville, NY-based photographer talks to us about the path he took to get there—the high school awards that gave him the confidence to keep taking pictures; attending art school, and jump starting an independent career by taking $20 head shots out of a small Manhattan apartment; and why he chose to move his life and studio to rural Upstate NY. Despite the ups and downs that working solo can often present, Noah still says he wouldn’t have it any other way.
This photo stood out to me (below), but the Cabin Porn is stuff I’ve seen and is truly a sight. Go take a look. I don’t want to spoil everything and I certainly don’t want to be accused of copyright infringement. I’m hoping to send people to read the article.
