“Optimum creativity is a birth: it needs a plan and foreknowledge, but it needs time, no pressure and an unexplainable force of nature.”
Natalie Dybisz is a fashion photographer based in London, working under the name Miss Aniela.
Her quote comes from this video – “The Best Environment for Creativity” – a clip from her CreativeLive course Imaginative Fashion Photography. More on that below.
She also comments, “If you rely too much on the plan and if you try to force perfection, your creativity can droop and fail.”
The video description notes, “Miss Aniela talks about balancing the pressures of client work with the desire to give yourself time and space to be inspired. She advises photographers on how to set yourself up to nourish your most creative self without striving for perfection.”
Here is another video: Extreme Fashion Shoot in Iceland – where the image at the top was created.

“Going to one’s dreams, or to one’s own life experiences/subconscious, I have found to be the best way to conceive images that might not even be truly original, but lack cliches, and come genuinely from the artist’s soul and heart…. often with a message for others.”
