Interview with Christin Necker

Insight into her career and her work with the ColorEdge monitor

EIZO: Christin, how did you become a photographer?
CN: I started very early – at the age of 14 I started shooting my first photo shoots and films with my friends. After my training as an IT specialist and acquiring a degree in graphic design, I dared to take the step towards self-employment. My career as a photographer involved a lot of learning-by-doing. The knowledge I have now was obtained from years of experience.

EIZO: Why did you specialise in drone photography?
CN: I am fascinated by the possibility of capturing objects from all possible angles. That's why I came across the subject of drones at some point.

EIZO: Do you need any special equipment?
CN: Solid basic equipment. A full-frame camera and prime lenses are a must. I also have a lot of lights. So I'm prepared for any situation.

EIZO: What inspires you?
CN: Nature and life.

EIZO: Are there any particular highlights or challenges in your career?
CN: Highlights: Certainly my first film award in Los Angeles. It was actually just a project of the heart and it quickly became a hit. Challenges: Shooting in special locations is always new and exciting.

EIZO: You have already received many awards and prizes - what are you particularly proud of?
CN: I am very happy when I inspire others to also dive into the world of film and photography.

EIZO: How important is studio equipment to you?
CN: Very important. I need solid and reliable hardware for my daily work. You can always rely on EIZO products. They run non-stop for 10-12 hours a day during the week.

EIZO: What do you particularly like about the EIZO monitor?
CN: The size is an incredible benefit and the 100% true colours. I can always be sure that everything is correct when I hand in a project.
