Zara hello! Let’s start off with a little background, please tell us a little about yourself?

Tell us a bit more about what you do here at Orms and what is it you enjoy about it?
Everything related to online and photobook support. I really get excited when I see great work and get to travel with my clients through their photobook experience.
Who or what got you interested in photography?
Well, I originally started studying art. Oil painting and sculpture specifically, I got a little frustrated and wanted to branch out a bit. Being totally ‘’light’’ and colour obsessed lead me down the path of discovery with photography.
Film or digital?
Both, they offer their very own different appeals.
If you had to change your name, what would you change it to?
Why would I do a silly thing like that, my name is AWESOME!
What’s your favourite song at the moment?
Too many to mention, but… Yelawolf – Till it’s Gone
Your favourite food as a child?
Italian – pizza, pasta you name it… and to finish a good dinner, some Italian Kisses!
If you had to throw a costume party, what would the theme be?
The rocky horror picture show. Of course!
If you could choose anyone as your mentor, who would that be?
Don Michael Corleone ‘’Never hate your enemies. It clouds your judgement’’
If you could be any fictional character, who would you choose?
What was the best/worst gift you ever received?
With my excitement receiving a gift, on opening it to my surprise an iPhone box appears, inside of it, not an iPhone, but cans of tuna. (My friends are really strange, thinking this was the best idea ever)
What do you love doing on weekends?
You will find me usually on wine farms, and riding some trails with my bike, the more secluded the better… I love being secluded in nature.
