CLAUDIA HAGAN PHOTOGRAPHY

Based in Hilo, Hawaii (Big Island)

A little about me…

I was born and raise in Argentina, in the Northwest of  Buenos Aires’s province, 3 hrs to the capital if you drive fast (like Argentinos)in now days with much better roads.

I grew up in flat land, where the best corn, wheat (before Monsanto times), cows and horses  will grow, Argentina is big in good food, but in my house they still make the pasta, yeah, my mom will make ravioles any time during the week…the best food is in my house for sure.

My mother’s father, had a love for photography and race cars and fishing and all electronics…I was also always curious about many things.  I remember looking at the tall buildings in Buenos Aires capital from the bus or the car’s windows, having the best feeling of been a spy, now the camera make me feel exactly the same…is like people can’t see me when I’m behind the camera.

One day I discovered French fashion’s magazines at the age of 10 I started looking and looking and learning French off course…I moved to Buenos Aires where Photography found me.

Not doubt that each step in our lives are connected, for good or for bad…my heart got broken and my dedication to know more about photography got deep, I posed for photographers, I worked as an assistant, I was a technician in Kodak labs, my clientele was growing.

My photography was changing, now I jagged between commercial (need the $$) and artistic (can’t live without it),  always looking how to enjoy both.

I can’t be a photographer that just press the bottom,  I love photography.

I like to shake myself when things are getting comfortable or boring or  “normal”.

I like the feeling of passing images giving people the possibility of spying  through images keep my heart happy.

My first time in a competition I won the first prize with my portfolio of portraits. I was honored with a year of intense study of lighting, posing and dealing with producers.

I photographed people in general even miss Argentina, I did work for magazines and theaters.

In my earlier years I specialized in Headshots for actors, Plays, Musicians, Cd covers

To mix up a little,                                                                                                                                        I moved to new York and did a lot of street photography, life started getting better, I moved to the West side, beautiful  San Francisco, lucky me.                                            I got lost a little bit, between the fog , the cold and the sunshine…I kept the black and white lab going  to Duboce Park, love it…and here comes the family…we added another daughter and dogs, cats, goats, chickens to our lives, living a simple but pleasurable life, now in Hawaii.

When I photograph food I like to learn about the person that invested time in cooking it, or  in the hands of the one that cultivated the veggies, in the way that the fish was caught…I love most of all to document lives and to have the feeling that a memory was created is without doubt the “million dollar” treasure in my heart.
