Simak Abrishami: Interview

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

Success, Body and Power

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

I’m just a little punk trying to become that one in a million photographer who can make a living off of his craft.

Why do you do what you do?

So that I can transform this mundane everyday life into something more intriguing.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

Only about two years ago – I felt like having a photo-shoot with my parents’ camera, and my friend Karina agreed to model for me. Everything fell into place from that moment. Thanks girl!

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

My parents – and ironically enough, they’re the ones who helped as well…funny how that worked out.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

I’ve been following David Gandy and Tom Ford as inspiration; let’s hope it works. I’d love to think so, but I have no idea – if I do people, come let me know! 

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

I’ve made so many more than just one – as cliché as it is though, trying to take the easiest path is what’s set me back the most

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

Finally releasing BLNWY, which is my urban photography project, and filming Artiztik’s latest music video. In terms of goals though, that’s easy – I want to get my photography to a level where my Instagram can look like my Tumblr.

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

People always say that money doesn’t buy happiness – my advice is find a way to make money doing what you love, then go and make a lot of it. I’ve never heard someone complain about living luxuriously.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

I’m not down for a desk job, so this shit better work! And yeah, if you want pictures taken….wink wink nudge nudge
