Occupation: Photographer, Fetish Model, Make-up Artist

She Needs It: Thanks for taking the time to sit down with us and  let us know about the industry. How did you get started as a photographer? 

Angela Zodiak: I started working for ATK as an editor in 2009. I shot my first set for them a few months later. 

She Needs It: What was your first scene shooting like?

Angela Zodiak: I was very nervous and had a crap camera... but it was a great first shoot!

She Needs It: I've seen those pics. You're WAY to hard on yourself. (laughs). They turned out great. I know before you started shooting you were a make-up artist and model. How has this helped your work as a photographer?

Angela Zodiak: I knew the basics of lighting and posing from my work with Pink Kitty Studios. It was more the technical gear stuff I had to learn...and directing models.

She Needs It: You'e shot A LOT of sexy girls.Who have been your favorite subjects to photograph?
