WELCOME TO SEASON 5 | EPISODE 25
Photography & Interior Styling: The art of capturing the design story behind a space
WITH KRYSSIA AGIUS
INTERIOR STYLING CAN TELL A CAPTIVATING STORY
A former graphic designer turned interior stylist and photographer, Kryssia shares her journey of career transformation and pursuing her passion in the world of interiors.
IN THIS PODCAST WE ARE TALKING ABOUT
After taking a break from her career in graphic design to raise her children, Kryssia found herself longing to re-enter the workforce and expand her creative journey. Enrolling in a design school, Kryssia’s hope was to niche down and discover which creative area her passion truly was.
We talk about how our strengths and passions aren’t always obvious to us to begin with, and how just stepping out to test different ideas can lead us to where we’re truly meant to be. Our conversation around this is a reminder that you don’t need to have everything figured out before you begin; just start, and the rest will work itself out!
Gaining experience in the world of interior styling, Kryssia quickly discovered her strength in and love for photography, leading her down a path that perfectly blended her skills. With an understanding and respect for the styling process, Kryssia has a knack for capturing the intricate details in a space, as well as bringing out the essence of a designer’s work.
For interior designers, a lot of work goes into putting a space together, and often there’s only one opportunity to capture it. We talk about the power photography has to tell the story behind the design choices, and to create a compelling narrative that showcases a designer’s intention and skill.
Given the grunt work (and not to mention mayhem) that goes into a styling photoshoot, working with an intuitive photographer like Kryssia is a treat that makes it all feel worthwhile. We talk about the value of photography and its ability to beautifully convey the designer’s intended message – despite the chaos behind the scenes!
Kryssia’s story is truly inspiring for anyone looking to transform their career and discover where they truly belong. So listen in for some beautiful insights into finding your niche and utilising your creative strengths to capture the beauty and essence of design.
