This week on the podcast we sit down with commercial lifestyle photographer Magdalena Wosinska. Although many might know Magda from her popular Instagram account "The Magdalena Experience Volume 1" featuring her beautifully crafted nude self portraits, she has a very long history with photography that stretches back to her early teens and a client list that includes some of the top brands in the world. Magda, a polish immigrant, moved to this country when she was 8 years old with her parents who were both respected psychology professors. Although the land of opportunity seemed amazing at first, she quickly started dealing with the pressures of being a young girl in a new country who couldn't speak the language. She began to feel alienated, but in her early teen years she finally found her voice in the world of skateboarding. It would be skateboarding that would truly introduce her to the freedom of this country and the characters that come along with it. And it would be skateboarding that would lead her to a very early career in photography. Shooting her first overseas assignment at the age of 16, Magda began to slowly carve out a name for herself as one of the few female photographers shooting skateboarding. It would later be a chance to work with legendary photographer Art Streiber where she truly began to tune her craft and the see the potential of photography work outside the world of skateboarding. On this episode we ask Magda how she manages to convey the freedom and angst of youth culture in photographs, what made her get in front of the lens with her nude self portrait project, what it was like being in a metal band with professional skateboarder Ethan Fowler, and what keeps her driven to always be moving forward. So enjoy this fun conversation with Magdalena Wosinska.
