I’m Adrienn Banko, a photographer from Budapest, Hungary. I`ve been in love with pictures ever since I can remember. Though, it was a long way to discover that photography was the perfect job for me. When I bought my first digital camera I made everyday hundreds of pictures of basically everything. I really enjoyed it, so I simply just wanted to learn everything about it. I bought my first DSLR camera around the age 20, after that everything started. At first I shot nature and landscapes. I never thought about shooting pictures of people.
Everyone told me I was good at it and no one understood why I didn’t pay interests in photographing people. So I thought I give it a try. That’s when my real love began. In the beginning I took a photography course, but I didn’t feel it gave me enough spirit, so I started to learn from a famous Hungarian photographer, Norbert Baksa. I wasn’t sure about what I really want to do with all this, but somehow I started to fall in love with fashion photography. I’ve been searching for the best fashion photographers’ pictures and been analyzing them for hours. So many of those are truly magical to me.
My favorites are Mario Testino, Annie Leibovitz and Terry Richardson. Now I realize that is the way I wanna go. Of course my biggest dream is to do a cover for Vogue, actually a few of my pictures has been published on PhotoVogue`s homepage, I guess that’s a way to start. I’m sure I still have to learn a lot and work harder than ever, but I’m on it. I’m happy to share some work from a fashion editorial my team and I made last summer, in June 2015″
