Henry's work is classic and timeless.  He started his career nine years ago.  Henry describes his style as “there is always a Henry feeling in my pictures”.  Henry has great talent and it shows in his work.  He has never assisted a fashion photographer.  He has developed a unique and classic style.

Exclusively Fashion Magazine: Can you tell me how your career started as a fashion photographer?

Henry Moshizi: Fashion has been my interest since I was a kid and when I was around 7,8 years old I wanted to be a photographer and got my first camera from my dad.  I was stunned and just wanted to take pictures all the time.  After my studies, I started as an 2nd assistant with a still life photographer and moved on to become 1st assistant.  After a couple of years I started assisting a fashion/life style photographer.  Later on, I started to do some tests for model agencies and after a while, I decided to start shooting on my own.

EFM: What is your view on fashion and photography?

HM: Well, I love fashion and I love photography.  Fashion photography for me, is to create a dream world, dream of beauty, dream of something more or less unreachable.  Great fashion picture should take the viewer to a none existing world, a world of dreams, beauty, and so on...

EFM: How often do you travel a month?

HM: It depends, but for example, I have been to France (twice), Dubai, Nordenireland in the past month and a half.

EFM: Can you describe your style as a fashion photographer?

HM: Well, my style!!! I don't know, it is hard to describe.  I think, I change my style depending on where I am, what I shoot, inspirations at the moment, etc.  But there is always a Henry feeling in my pictures, a sort of line/style, if you know what I mean?

EFM: Have you ever assisted any established photographers; if so, who were they?

HM: Not a world famous photographer, no.

EFM: You live in Sweden; do you think that it's difficult to be a successful fashion photographer?

HM: Sweden is a small country in the North (he smiles).  But, a very string creative country we have a few of the best photographers in the world and the creative directors, but yet it is harder to get to the top when one lives in such a small country.  I am sure it is a bit easier in France or USA or UK.  To answer your question, I must say yes/no.

EFM: You live a very fast-paceed life and travel around the world; where is your favorite location?

HM: Love to do shoots in Mexico.  And just relax at my parents house in the country side in Sweden.

EFM: Tell me something that no one knows about you?

HM: If I tell you, than people will know (he smiles)!!!  I hate early morning.

EFM: Do you ever find yourself trying to evolve or reinvent yourself as a photographer?

HM: I'm always trying to do new things, new way of thinking/taking photographs I think that it is very important to never be satisfied and try to do some thing new and something better it develops one as a creative....

EFM: What advice can you give to aspiring fashion photographers?

HM: Just, work, work, work; harder and harder and do not forget...it is only Fashion!!
