Илона: Interview with Natali Karppinen. 22/12/2010 (credit to Natali) Natali Karppinen is an experimental photographer and a model. She is a mom to a lovely little girl Lara and a spouse to HIM's drummer Gas. Natali was really kind to agree to do this interview exclusively for Russian fans. So here you go :) Hi Natali, how is the weather in Helsinki now? Hello! The weather is cold, dark and ugly... No, I'm just joking :D It's not that cold, but it is quiet dark-ish, since daylight doesn't last that long. There's a lot of snow and I love it, esp. because I come from country where there's never so much snow as there's here, so I'm happy about it :) I know that you are originally from Croatia. Was it hard for a girl from a hot and sunny country to get used to severe Finnish climate? Actually it wasn't that big "shock" at all. I was born in Moscow and that's where my mom's from, so I kinda have it in my veins, you know the ability to stand the coldness a little bit better than let's say the rest of people in Croatia. I like Finnish Summers... They can be really nice and the whole city (Helsinki) looks beautiful at the Summer time. Natali, you seem to be a very busy lady. Besides being a wife and a mom you are also a photographer and a model. How do you manage to find time for everything? Nah, I'm not that busy. Right now I'm concentrated on my family, esp. my little daughter. When I have time, I take photos and do some modeling. It helps me to express myself and be creative, which is something that I have to do in order to feel "alive". You are a model. What’s the meaning of fashion in your life? Which clothing brands do you personally prefer? I've been doing some modeling since I was 13 years old, but never took it too serious, which is I guess good and bad thing at the same time, but I am very interested in fashion. I don't follow the trends, but I love to read some fashion magazines, check their editorials and I think that my biggest fascination with fashion is that it's basically like acting. When you're having a photo-shoot or shooting video for some campaign, it's every time a new character, new story line and I love those transformations. You get to see yourself in so many different "roles" that you would most possibly never try out in your life if it wouldn't be for the purpose. When it comes to the brands, I like Burberry, Lanvin, Winter Kate, LnA, Valentino, Marchesa, etc. I love your photography. You are an amateur photographer, aren’t you? Which camera do you use to take your photos? Thank you for the compliment. Yes, I'm an experimental photographer. I started taking photos about a year ago, so I'm still learning and have to learn a lot more. I'm using Canon EOS 450 D, but hoping that next year I'll be able to buy Canon EOS 7D which is the best Canon camera there is on the market. Do you plan to take photography more seriously? What should we expect from you in future? Yeah, definitely! I have some small plans already, but I don't want to talk about them yet, since they're just plans and I'm not sure what future brings...There're so many great photographers in this world, so I'm hoping for the worst, but expecting the best :D On your website (natalikarppinen.daportfolio.com)you have two galleries: Life Gallery and Portraits Gallery. My first question is about photos in Life Gallery. How do you decide on locations and subjects? Actually, I'm doing it all spontaneously. If I'm going for a walk somewhere in my neighborhood, I have my camera with me and if I see some nice "corner" or view, I just take the photo. I think that's the best, not much thinking or planning, just if it happens, it happens, if not, then there's always another time, another day. Which inspires you the most – people or the world around you, and why? Everything... World is pretty ugly and fucked up place where nothing's normal anymore, or has never been, but then again it's such a beautiful place and I'm happy to be alive and live to see all the beautiful places in this world and have my family, meet all of my friends again and again and some new, inspiring people. All of those things inspire me... From Portraits Gallery I particularly love the series of photos of Carrie, they are very atmospheric. Where did the idea of that photo session come from? Thank you! It was actually my first portrait photo session. I just had already many landscape photos, but not a single portrait photo, so I wanted to try out how I would function when taking portraits and it turned out fine, but I still have a lot to learn. How about doing a photo shoot with the guys from HIM or just Ville Valo maybe? That would be really interesting. Never say never, but that would be interesting, just like you said. Natali, looks like you really enjoy cooking. You even post the pics of dishes you’ve cooked on your Twitter page. What is Gas’s favourite dish if it’s not a family secret? Yea, seems that lately my two "things" are photos and cooking, LOL. I do like to cook, but not every day 24/7, because it gets very boring and I like to keep it exciting and not an obligation. Gas's favorite dish is definitely lasagnas. Your husband, Gas, is a drummer in HIM. Do you like listening to HIM’s music? What are your tastes in music? Which bands, artists do you prefer? Tough question... I'm all "mixed" up when it comes to my music tastes. I love classical music, Tchaikovsky, Shostakovich, Wagner, Verdi, etc., etc. I like movie soundtracks and composers such as Hans Zimmer and Howard Shore. Then I love old rock stuff from 70s and 80s... All time fave bands are Guns' n Roses, Alice Cooper, Scorpions, Iggy Pop, WASP, Def Leppard, Black Sabbath, Bon Jovi, Depeche Mode, Alice in Chains, Patti Smith, Tori Amos, just to name a few. I like HIM's music, but I don't listen to it, unless I'm on some of their shows, of course. Gas tours a lot with HIM. What is it like to be a wife of a travelling musician? How do you both survive separation which may last for up to several months? It's a tough sport, but that's who he is, that's the part of the package and no matter how hard it is, I can't whine about it, because that's what I chose and I knew what I was letting myself into. HIM’s leader, Ville Valo, once said that HIM is like a big family. Do you somehow feel part of this ‘family’? I do! I like the people that are making that family and I have never felt not welcomed or an extra. What are your plans for celebrating Christmas and New Year? Plans are to be with the people I love, somewhere safe and sound :) Thank you, Natali, for finding time to do this interview. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your lovely family!
