How did you begin Nikola?

I picked up a camera, played with it, and fell in love. One thing lead to another, and now I'm a regular shooter with Vogue, and do fashion, portrait, and nightlife editorials for many other print and online publications. All of this work can be seen at www.nikola-tamindzic.com.

I post about things I love on my Tumblr: homeofthevain.tumblr.com

You capture a lot of "raw" moments in your nightlife photography, what has been some of the more interesting reactions to that?

People love having their photo taken in 99% of the situations, so usually they step the action up even higher.

Most Memorable Shoot?

Shoot with Fever Ray. 45 seconds total, and we came out with one of my favourite photos of all time: http://nikola-tamindzic.com/portrait.html
