Interview | Jasmin Fazlagić

We asked. He answered. Read an interview with Jasmin Fazlagić. Photographer from Bosnia.

1. Who are you and what are you doing?
Jasmin Fazlagić, I work as a photographer.

2. Describe your typical day at work.
Because of the nature of my job, which is non-typical, I don`t have any typical days.

3. What do you enjoy the most about your job?
I enjoy fashion photography the most, and also taking pictures of landscapes in my
spare time.
4. What do you dislike the most about your job?
I dislike having no work to do. In those times I feel as if my gas pedal is pushed to the
limit, while the gear is still shifted in neutral position.

5. Who`s your worst enemy in terms of creativity?
Your worst enemy in terms of creativity can be a uncreative client.


6. What are you doing when starting a new project and having no ideas at all?
Usually I donʼt start any projects unless I have an idea. And ideas usually come to mind
during meetings and conversations with clients. If it didnʼt work that way, my job would
end up in a failure.


7. What inspires you the most?
I`m very inspired when Iʼm surrounded with people who know how to do their job right.

8. Do you listen to music when you work? If so, what type of music?
I listen to music on a regular basis. When I work with other people in studio, itʼs usually
some trendy music, because I need to set some mood during the shooting, and when
I`m working on postprocessing, it`s usually Buddha bar or some ambiental classics.

9. How do you cope with criticism?
I have no problems with criticism, as long as it`s based on arguments and critic`s
professionality. I lose nerves when I listen to criticism coming from people outside the
visual industry, who don`t even know how to do their own job in a propriate way.

10. How does your working environment look like?
Very neat and tidy.

11. Do you remember the first project you were working at?
No project, but I remember my first shooting I did 13 years ago, when I was still
working for newspapers. There was a monkey who bit a man. I took a picture of it for the
local column in Dnevni Avaz.

12. Are there any tips you would like to share with our readers?
I don`t share any tips. I leave that to the people who do it as a part of their profession.
Read the answer number nine.

13. Which of your previous projects was most fun?
I had the most fun shooting photos of traditional folklore clothing of Bosnia and
Herzegovina. I traveled a lot and I learned a lot about traditional values of our people.

14. Think about your life in 15 years... what will you be doing?
Still doing the same job, just with more assistants and bigger budgets.

15. Please name three persons we should do this same interview with (and why them?)
Maybe those three misfallen members of our Presidency.
