5 Minutes | CE Photography

Introducing a new post: "5 minutes", which gives you five minutes with an inspiring and interesting individual that I would like you to get to know a bit better. For my first post I would love to introduce you to Chriscilia Epriel Tehupeiori, owner of Chrisicila Epriel Photography, who is looking to catch beauty and fashion through her camera lens.

About The Girl
Chriscilia Tehupeiori is a  23 year old girl from the Netherlands with a passion for photography. She comes from a big family and is the youngest of five siblings. She lives together with her boyfriend and 2 energetic and crazy cats. Other than photography, Chriscilia also loves listening to music, eating food, playing sudoku, and having quality time with friends and family. Chriscilia found her love for the arts at an early age when she discovered she was good at drawing and she wanted to specialize in anime and realistic drawing. But this discovery brought her to her interest in photography, which was catapulted into a full-blown love and determination to pursue photography professionally when she got her first camera, a Canon 350D. 

Chriscilia Epriel Photography 
After graduating from her photography degree at Willem de Kooning Academy in 2013, Chriscilia started her own business named "Chriscilia Epriel Photography", after her first and second name. She had already built quite a portfolio consisting of many fashion-inspired photo shoots and you can view her portfolio on her website or admire a couple of the images added in this article. Through her photography, Chriscilia aims to create another reality in which the sky's the limit and she can make that alternate world as beautiful or as ugly as she likes. It is all about capturing a special moment that ends up being a reality that no longer exists. This artistic aspiration, this special something, is something Chriscilia tries to show in all her photography. She finds inspiration for it in the world around her, from magazines to movies. She only needs a small detail that will create a big idea in her mind. 

The Process 
When Chriscilia gets an idea the first thing she does is write it all down, e.g. what kind of scenery, model, make-up she imagines with her idea. This way she can brainstorm about it whilst looking for inspiration and play with the different feelings it gives her. This is how she creates a moodboard that she uses to create a team (of visagistes and stylists) and together they will produce an artistic and fashionable photo shoot. To make this happen, Chrisicilia currently uses a Canon 6D with a Tamron AF SP 28-75mm f/2.8 and Qihe strobist lights L-250A and her Macbook.

Now what?
As a new professional, Chriscilia is always looking for interesting jobs, which can vary from fashion shoots to beauty portraits or taking product photos or pictures at an event. When asking Chriscilia what she believed to be her best work, she answered that her best work is still to come and that she looks forward to bringing her dreams and ideas to life through her photography. If you are looking for a fashion-inspired (beauty) photo then get in touch with Chriscilia Epriel Photography, and in the mean time, check out the website! As Chriscilia is always looking to expand her portfolio, she is very interested in collaborations with stylists and visagistes, so do not hesitate to get in touch! Have you ever done a photo shoot? Would you like to do a fashion-inspired one?
