Can you please introduce yourself?
Hi! I’m Cristina Hoch and I’m from southern Spain. I’m studying biology and I’m 22 years old.
How did photography happen to you?
It was by chance I guess. I just started playing with a compact camera that I found in my house.
What is the secret to capture a great fine art portrait?
I think that dedication makes the difference; you have to work hard before, during and after the shoot.
How important is post production in your workflow?
It’s very important in my photos. Indeed, I think they change a lot. With post production, you can remake photographs and give them a new meaning, expressing feelings with tones, brightness or sharpness.
What do you want your viewers to take away from your work?
I want them to feel my love for nature and beauty.
Apart from Photography, tell us your hobbies and interests?
Biology is my biggest passion and what I’m studying for. I do love taking and processing photographs. I have other hobbies like listening to music, hiking, playing video games and watching films!
Your favorite photographers?
I love the work of Nirrimi Firebrace, Fanny Latour Lambert, Alison Scarpulla, Melania Brescia and so many more!
Your favorite photography quote?
“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.” – Aaron Siskind

Any tips for aspiring photographers out there?
It can always be a good moment to have a perfect portrait, with the perfect gust of wind, the perfect ray of light or the perfect moss in the land so carry your camera with you.
