Fotograf Interviews

fotografering

When did you travel into the artistic world?

My journey in to photography began seriously in early 2009, initially being inspired by the beautiful north of England and shooting traditional colour landscapes.  Though the work I was producing at the time was to my mind relatively pleasing to the eye, I always preferred black and white photography so began to concentrate all my efforts on that.  Additionally, because I live in London and the landscape was less inspiring, I turned my attention to the south coast of England and began to shoot seascapes with man-made elements as the main subject in the image.

Towards the end of 2009 I discovered the art of long exposure photography and from thereon I was like a man obsessed.  It took me some time to really understand the technical aspects needed to produce this type of work and after many failed attempts towards the end of 2010 I finally got to a place where I was 100% happy with the images I was producing.

What are your plans for the future?

The reason I started photography was not to make any profit out of it, I simply love getting out there and taking photos.  However, 2011 saw quite a few positive developments; I started to make some sales, I gained representation, had my first exhibition and ran a workshop with another photographer.

For the future I want to continue to devote much of my time to further challenging myself in the work I do.  But, I also want to focus on marketing myself better this year and to run further workshops guiding others on how to achieve their own goals.

Name 3 people that have been your inspiration?

There was no single photographer that inspired me to start out on this path, but more the natural landscape itself that made me want to pick up a camera.  Soon though I found myself appreciating other artists work more and more, but at the start I was even unaware of the great Ansel Adams.

When I started to learn about photography, I read a lot of books and stumbled across a book written by Lee Frost.  That book helped me on my way to understanding a lot of the fundamentals of photography, so really I would say he was the first photographer to inspire me.

The first long exposure photograph I ever encountered was by an amateur photographer called Giles McGarry.  Giles and I have actually now become friends, he is a fantastic black and white photographer and he continues to inspire me.

The third person is a difficult one to answer, as there are so many great photographers out there so I’m going to be cheeky and name two more. Joel Tjintjelaar and Jeff Gaydash both inspire me, but have both been very helpful in getting me to get to where I am today.  It has taken me a while to develop my skills in this style of photography and both of these guys have been very generous in replying to requests for help and guidance.

Tell us about your artwork – What thoughts you have when you work?

Long exposure photography really appeals to my meticulous nature, I enjoy symmetry and clean lines and this is conveyed in much of my work.  Many of the man-made subjects that I shoot are very graphic in texture and I use long exposures to isolate them, so the composition is less cluttered.

Much of the time when I’m actually out shooting, I just feel at ease with my surroundings.  As many of my fellow photographers that know me will testify, I’m usually not happy unless I’m knee deep in water.  It’s important for me to connect as much as possible with those surroundings to appreciate the elements to remember what I was feeling at the time when I’m back at home, in the warm and processing the image.

photographer

How often do you make your art?

There’s rarely a day that goes by that I’m not working on something in some manner.  But I don’t produce new work everyday, it’s more a case of going over shots that I already have and learning new techniques on how to process them.

Regrettably, due to the constraints of everyday life I don’t get out as much as I would like.  Also because I shoot mostly seascapes and live in London it is quite difficult to get to the coast and when I do, the weather doesn’t always go in my favour.

Did you exhibit your work somewhere?

Actually, my first exhibition started at the beginning of December 2011 and runs until the end of January 2012.  The run up to the exhibition was a steep learning curve in getting the prints right and who would have thought that something simple like choosing how to frame them would be such a headache.  But, I’m pleased to say that I got there in the end and hope to continue to exhibit throughout the coming year.  For further details on upcoming events please visit:  http://www.artdoglondon.co.uk – and go to the NEWS page.

photography

What is your biggest dream?

The biggest dream would be to make this a full time profession because there doesn’t seem enough time in the day to dedicate to my work.  Although I am very conscious that if it were to become reality that it may detract from the enjoyment I get from it now and I don’t want to lose that.

For the year ahead though my biggest dream, is to get one of my images in to the prestigious: Take A View, Landscape Photographer Of The Year.  Last year one of my images was shortlisted, but did not make the final publication.

In 2005, the real journey started. I started to like the place and felt the dense feeling inside me and i started to pursue that.

 What is your plans for the future??

I will move to France on the fall of 2012 to live there. I will have my first exhibition in Paris. There are many exhibition plans. I would like my photos to live longer than I do. I have a dream to open an art gallery in Paris. Who knows? Maybe one day I will be able to do that.

Name 3 people that has been your inspiration?

Photographers Gregory Colbert, Alain Etchepare, Michael Kenna. These 3 master are impressing me really. They´re taste, soul and looking upon the world are just perfect and their photographs help me to just push myself a step forward. Storywise though, I m inspired within myself; within my soul. I see my inner world and try to capture that. My expectations, sorrows, happinesses, falls, rises are all in my photographs.

Tell us about your artwork – What thoughts you have when you work?

We can say Ebru SİDAR’s little stories. There is a path running from outside to inside; starting from eyes, going into heart. I have stories to tell which people can read as they look at my photos. Sometimes, while waiting for take photograph which doesn’t have a story but is only visually interesting, I wish there were some trees to make it more interesting or indescribable objects on clouds; secrets meanings can’t be revealed. Those would make a photo more interesting and would worth waiting. As you can see I am after meaning. My expectation in this respect is very big. I don’t want to take just good looking photos. Each photo mine should enter from the eye and flow to the soul.

When did you travel into the artistic world ??

I started with photomanipulation four years ago. Before that I only edited photos. I really did not know so much about photoshop back then. But when I got a member of Deviantart and found all those wonderful artwork, I thought I should try and learn. And I loved it!

fotografer

What is your plans for the future??

My plans for the future is to get better and better. To make better artwork, and I also like to learn more about painting. It had been wonderful to master painting I think. Lately I also have thought about writing a book about photoshop and how to make artwork in different styles. Its really many things I like to learn and do. But I have to take one thing at the time.

Actually many people has given me inspiration. Also because I love so many different kind of art, and styles. So its difficult to name only 3. But I can give you the name of the person as almost put me in coma when I found his work. His name is John, and he has been and meant so much to me during those years. When I first join Deviantart, it was his work I saw first. I could stare at it for hours. This person is a wonderful artist, and his art goes right to the heart.

Tell us about your artwork – What thoughts you have when you work?

I dont really know what to answer on this. It depends a lots of what I do. I always try my very best when I do something. And new ideas comes up during the time I work with an image. Sometimes my work reflects how I feel at the moment. I can see it myself and I often laugh about it. I like to vary my work. In one period I maby love to create something with children. And then it can come periods when I love to work with animal. Models retousch, dark art, fantasy and so on. I can not do the same all the time because then I loose my imagination. Sometimes I just sit and train hair painting.

Tell us about your photography?


I started with an old analogic camera, bought by a friend of mine (photographer). ‘She’ used to follow me everywhere, catching Salento’s faces and landscape. Since then – about 10 years later – I got another camera, but the habit to bring it always with me remains.
Nowadays, I like to explore more or less all photographic fields and I am pretty sure to have gained a good general background, but I keep on focussing on portraits and landscapes.
Through digital postproduction (e.g. Photoshop), I have discovered new perspectives and I feel someway forced to follow those new pathways in order to distinguish my pictures from other ones, produced by an indistinguished mass that watches and reproduces images in a standardised way, often far from being of good quality; Bresson said that if a photographer is good he can take a good photo a year.

Photographer Stefano Cacciatore

What is the story and thoughts behind your work?

My main pattern is the concept of solitude; I don’t see it as a negative condition, but rather as a strong distinction from the main subject. For example, in my most recent portaits, solitude is represented through a black background around the subject, taken under a light, mostly natural, that aims at revealing his/her soul.
In my landscapes, the absence of human elements and the long exposures, represent the uncontrollable strenght of changing immensity; in front of such fact, humankind is just a solitary observer of a short moment.

Photographer Stefano Cacciatore

Name 3 people that have inspired you to do amazing photography?


Being a self-thaught photographer I never been studying the best photographers works, but recently I started to appreciate their works. I like the work of Martin Schoeller who, like me, tried to catch subject’s character and personality. I love the work of Andrzej Dragan, whose post production process has been reproduced in some of my photos. As landscape photographer, I like a lot David Zimmerman, from who I gained the patience to wait for the right shot, and the importance of having from each scene the same emotion I had when, being a child, I observed for the first time a breathless lanscape.

Photographer Stefano Cacciatore

Who is your inspiration?


I don’t have a precise model. I’d rather prefer to be free, despite from time to time I like to think that my photos have something in common with Caravaggio paintings.

Photographer Stefano Cacciatore

Are you professional photographer?
No, I am not a professional photographer, but a simple passionate photographer who still has to study and practice a lot. I recently took part to two editions of the “Mediterraneo Photo Festival” held in Lecce (Italy) where I made two personal exhibitions, a video and a joined a collective exhibition.
My photos are published on websites like :

When did you travel into the artistic world ??

I‘m not sure if you can call this an artistic world, but I started drawing since I was a small kid. I never practiced drawing intensively in my freetime during school but I was always passionated about it in art lessons anyway. In 2006 I‘ve found the computer as my medium to create digital art. Back then, I was active in different forums and was often attracted to the fanart threads and inspired by the community members I started creating simple banners, small user pictures and fan wallpapers. After a while it got a bit boring because I wanted more than only creating fanart, so I looked for artistic communities and discovered deviantart.com where I found amazing artists who were a real inspiration to start creating my own artwork. Deviantart never failed to inspire me until today.

What is your plans for the future??

I want to finish my studies and then I‘ll see. I hope to get more commissions for book covers or any other kind and constantly get new commissions.

Tell us about your artwork – What thoughts you have when you work?

Most of my artwork I make develop from my emotions that become pictures in my mind. Some pieces I plan before I start working, some or many pieces also develop further when I‘m in the flow of the working process and are not planned from scratch. I think it‘s good to just let you go and become creative in a piece. But there are also concept works and pieces inspired by lyrics or poems.

How often do you make your art?

I can‘t say how often but I do it when I have time and when I‘m inspired. Sometimes I do one piece in a couple of months, sometimes I can do more. I wished I had more time.

Not in real galleries yet, but I show my work on several internet platforms, like on www.moonshine90.deviantart.com

fotografiet

Tell us about your artwork – What thoughts you have when you work?

It´s all about feeling. I truly believe that the real art comes inside of you. When I take pictures of my customer, I will meditate before that – try to clear my mind of old reelings and thoughts. I have to be cristal clear for the customer. I can´t let anything from my personal life to spoil my work with the other person. I like a deeply personal approach. My most better genre is nude photography. As a very tender and pepole loving person, I love to see to the deep inside a woman. They are just so beautiful, and I am so lucky when they show me their Soul and open theirselves. Most of my nude photography customers are afraid when they walk in to my house. I can see that. The most biggest reward for me is that  when they leave, they are happy, very happy. They smile, they thank and they say: “I feel much more confident than before”.

How often do you make your art?

Every single day, thats for sure.

Did you exhibit your work somewhere?

I have done some exhibitions in here, in Estonia. The last one was last year and it travelled around the country.

I would like go to Nepal and Tibet very much. As a buddist person myself, I would like see real budhist monks, real budhist places and take some wonderful photos of them. Afrter that I would like to show an exhibition about this travel. My dream is to be better and better, I am still and always critique about my work and I always feel that I can be a better photographer. That I have to put more inside of me to my art.

fotograf nick frank

Tell us about your photography?

As an Art Director you always deal with the perfect image and the associated statement. You get a briefing and develop ideas – when photographing, it’s all about the staging. I try to transfer the style which i have as an Art Director into a certain visual language and hope to trigger something at the recipient. Very often my imagery does not correspond  the actual state, it is more of an interpretation of the situation, a fictitious state. I like to retouch alot.

When i am out taking pictures, i tune out, become all quiet, all focused. I draw a lot of energy from that, recharge my batteries again. There is almost nothing better than a Sunday morning walk around 6.00 o‘clock through empty streets and take the time you need to compose a couple of shots.

fotograf nick frank

Why did you get into photography?

Tough question which can not be answered easily. I’ve already tried alot of different things. Music, motion-design, 3D, stuff like that. Either I did not have the necessary talent or at some point i wasnt able to push forward on my own because it was so specific or technology based, that I was simply overwhelmed.

In my job as an Art Director, the quality of my work depends on many factors: the client, the consultant, developers, sound designers, myself of course, etc. If one of these screws does not engage properly then the end result is often unsatisfactory. When doing photography, I’m not dependent on anyone, I press the release button, I edit my pictures and even put them online at any time i want. In addition, I am my own Art Director, I do the planning process, think about it, stage the pictures. For me, this is a holistic and straight forward process. So I see  results on the screen relatively fast. I also like that you can be outside or inside and basically you can find something to shoot anywhere.

fotograf nick frank

Who is your inspiration?

I am going to change the “who” into “what”. Inspiration is everywhere. Internet, television, the subway, and even in the shower. Inspiration does not necessarily need a visual component. Sometimes inspiration is noise, maybe even a smell. If I want to be inspired specifically, I look at pictures of my contacts in the relevant photo communities (fotoblur, 500px, 1x) or at the BFF (http://www.bff.de/?sprache=en) picture books of the recent years.

fotograf

Name 3 people that have inspired you to do amazing photography?

Andreas Gursky‘s strictly structured compositions, David LaChapelle‘s productions, which often consist of only one shot, and where no clean plates (layered images) are used and I really like what David Drebbin is doing, on closer suspection his pictures sometimes have a little surprise.

fotograf nick frank

What is the story and thoughts behind your work?

It’s about self-discovery, finding something new or to interpret it differently, change the own point of view, leaving the rhythm and the usual paths. It’s about time, places, moments, but also technology.

fotograf nick frank

Are you professional photographer?

After a couple of paid projects I was able to breathe into professional life but I would not describe myself as a professional photographer! I haven‘t been taking pictures long enough (since late 2010), there is still much to learn. Let’s see what the future holds:)

If at some point I take the step towards being a professional photographer, then maybe it’s not that hard for me because of my background as an Art Director. It might be easier to interpret the customers needs especially from the holistic point of view.

What are your future plans for your photography?

Decisions. Where am I heading? Artwork or themed shooting. Portrait or architecture. I’m interested in both. However, I notice it is difficult to expand in all areas at the same time. My gut tells me I need to place an emphasis on one specifiy type. As I have some ideas concerning people photograpy all I am missing is the right model.

fotograf nick frank

Can you give other photographers any advice?

Do not give up. Work hard, work often. Get feedback from other photographers and give feedback on you own. Let no day go by where you do notlook at pictures and aks yourself if you can not do better or differently. Train your eyes. Show your work on several photo pages. One quickly realizes how different communities and tastes are and what has to be done to land a hit. But remember: lot of comments (Flickr!) often say nothing about the quality of your work. Always be your toughest reviewer and questioning your work. Pick people who are better than you and you try to compete with them.

When did you travel into the artistic world ?

The crucial year was the year 2006 for me. I won’t  impress you with the story about my grand father and his old  camera. I was never interested in cameras or photography at all. I started to love photography by mistake and I must learned, how to swim in this photo-ocean and still learning. I’m not big fish , but maybe one day I will be.

What is your plans for future ?

I had a very hectic last year, so from now on I would like to enjoy my life as much as I can. I want to spend a time with my family, travel a lot, to taste a different things and most of all capture it with my camera, as I do it all the time. My favorite word is “feel” which means exactly what I want to do and not only in the photography. Life is too short, lets enjoy our selfs as much as we could. I’ve planned some photo- projects year ago and I have a feeling this is the right time to perform the action and to realize what I’ve already planned. I am looking forward already, can’t wait, be honest.

Name 3 people that has been your inspiration ?

Aaron Nace, Rosie Hardy and the third one I don’t have, because a lot of people not only artist or photographers are big inspiration for me. Aaron and Rosie had an influence on me, their performance  typifies my work. Thanks to their influence on me I can express myself through photography. I can easily spread my feelings and emotions. I’m so impressed by both of them, they are so talented  and creative.

photographer

Tell us about your artwork-What thoughts you have when you work ?

The photography is the filter, which helps me to sort my emotions. It means, anytime when I am happy or sad, depressed or even in love, all I can express through my photography. Sometimes it can be a confusion or it could have a different meaning, anyway whatever you see it has to have an impact on you, you have to at least feel something.

photos

How often do you make your art ?

It all depends on my free time, inspiration, sometimes even how I feel.  I take photos every single day. I try to capture moment which I currently like and you never know, what it will by from this picture in the future. You can get inspired any time, any day and any hour. The most important thing is to have your eyes wide open, to have your battery set fully charged and the most important thing is to feel and to have your camera with you at any time. Let’s face the truth, what really is an art? That’s the right question.

fotograf

Did you exhibit your work somewhere ?

No, unfortunately not, I never had an exhibition. I am not sure what I could show around the world with my photos. It is not enough for me, I must do more in photography. It is very popular at the moment to have an exhibition and it is not hard to make one . The question is how many people would appreciate my art, how many of them would even like to hang my photos on their walls. This is not that popular as we think, and especially here, in Slovakia.

I want to be happy with myself and to feel, to feel as much as I can. This is the key to the future. Lets challenge the future.

When did you travel Into the artistic world?

My mother is an art painter and I remember my childhood with her sitting on the table, painting together with oil on canvas. While other kids of my age drawing Donald Duck I painted the works of Don Lawrence (Trigan, Storm). You can actually say that I was born in the artistic world:).

What is your plans for the future?

My plans for the near future is to expand my portfolio. Improve its quality. After almost one year being busy with photography, I notice that many of my previous work no longer meet the increasing demands that I set yourself. I do need to have an extensive portfolio, but one of quality. If my portfolio is good enough in my eyes to show it to possible clients I hope to make money with advertising photography, in addition to the work I already do as a graphic and web designer.

Name 3 People That Has Been your inspiration?

As I already described in the first question, my mother. My son. Thanks to him I remember also a lot of my own childhood. The things you thought then, that you liked and what you feared. I use this as inspiration for my pictures. American advertising photographers such as David Hill, David Stuart, Jim Fiscus and Eric Almas.

Tell us about your artwork – What thoughts have you When you work?

When I work, I’m usually busy in my head with the technical part. The light set up and perspectives. That sort of things. Thinking about the image and the composition happens in the preliminary stages. I’m not only want my photo’s to be aesthetic, but also I want them to create a smile or a tear on the face of the viewer. This part, the part where I create the image in my mind and the search for appropriate models and locations takes the longest. This may be my last a month or more. Taking the photos and post processing and are often done in a day.

stop fighting photography

How Often do you make your art?

When i just started almost every day. At that time you have to experiment with all possibilities. In recent months less frequent. I think I now one photo per month. I would like make more photos, but with my own agency there is not enough time at the moment.

photos

Did you exhibit your work somewhere?

Not yet and I have no intentions yet to do so. For me, the Internet is enough to show my work.

7. What is your biggest dream?

My biggest dream to live without worries 😉 but for photography it is to work with a team of professionals, plenty of space and a budget to be able to create the images that I have in my mind.

I say it because recently I had to reply a worried viewer message about the “sadness” present in my artworks… She would like to know if I am a sad man, if I needed help!  Fortunately, I am a happy man that loves my family and life!

Why did you get into photography?

Since my childhood  I love photo, painting and drawing, but I had no talent and skills to perform it.  Someday in the past (15 years ago?), a friend gifts me the Bryce 4 pack, a cool 3D rendering and modeling software…. Then I noticed that with CG I could put my visions on screen… Many of my images I rendered  with Bryce, Vue, Terragen and Mojoworld  softwares. My last option however, is Photoshop CS5, because I have no much time and patience (mainly time) to wait long renders.

Who is your inspiration?

My main inspiration comes from finding and looking of  the stocks images I get on the net… and with the music, or song title I was hearing at the moment I am working. Generally, my title images coming from songs! I cannot work without music (I like all genres, classical to rock).

Name 3 people that have inspired you to do amazing photography?

I could name a very extensive list of inspiring authors… in photograhy, Ansel Adams.  But I will mention some artists that I love: Bierstadt, Caravaggio, Vermeer, Dali & Portinari (Brasilian) in painting and Manara, Frazetta, Parrish, Vallejo & Juarez Machado (Brasilian) in illustration.

What is the story and thoughts behind your work?

Like I said before, it is not necessarily my stories and thoughts I put in my images, just my visions. To call my attention, an artwork must contain colors, lighting and composition in harmony. Behind my artwork is the passion for CG, a good and fascinating hobby for me… it helps to ease my mind and soul.

What are your future plans for your photography?

I hope to enhance my skills in CG because I am an eternal apprentice and “autodidata” (self-taught person).  My dream is make money with my artworks after my retirement… Who Knows?

Mention 3 people that has been your inspiration?

I don’t know the names of worldclass photographer too much. I start at a little point via Thailand photography community. That name is www.pixpros.net. I was inspired by these pictures.

Tell us about your artwork – What thoughts you have when you work?

Nothing too special for the concept of my work. In the case of landscape. I just keep a picture of a place that is special anyway and fill some photography technique in the photo. In the case of Life photograph. I just keep a special moment that no one has ever observed.

When did you travel into the artistic world ?

I have been interested in photography since childhood, but not in its literal meaning. I love photography (from documentary to nature, landscape), i always wanted: then what is not in reality – more fantastic, unreal. When i was a student acquainted with photo matinpuliation and photoshop. And I understood – this is what i need, this is what i always wanted. You can create another new world/scenes a based on reality.

In which practically no limits – all dependent from you. There is one limitation – is yourself. And it’s amazing!

photographer

What is your plans for the future?

In the near future I have some ideas to create a series on the post apocalyptic theme. I want to involve more models/people in my work. And of course I’m dreaming about my own cozy photo studio.

Name 3 people that has been your inspiration?

To tell the truth: I am not following any certain persons or genre (for example: only fantasy, horror, humor, dark art etc.) and it’s hard to name specific authors. But for sure I get a portion of excellent inspiration from Uli Staiger – whom I admire the vision of. And Annie Leibovitz – a perfect example of how to make portraits, how to work with people, and how to make amazing scenes. And of course — music.

photography

Tell us about your artwork – What thoughts you have when you work?

I love to work spontaneously, experimenting, guided by my feelings and emotions. And before I begin my work, I make some sketches, themes, ideas of i want to do. But the “spirit”, atmosphere i’m passing almost under the finish. So when a piece of work is practically finished i’m trying to make more it more positive/colorful/fabulous, with little unrealistic view. What is sometimes not enough in real life (especially if it’s a portrait or landscape photography).

photographers

 

How often do you make your art?

It all depends from inspiration. But I do sketches very often ( or just writening my ideas on paper, or making rough sketch in Photoshop). Then after a day or two/week/month, I turn back to them and look on them with a “fresh mind”. And if they inspired from new – embody sketch in life.

Did you exhibit your work somewhere?

Actually, just on the web. I don’t have exhibitions, but of course I would like to that in the future.

What is your biggest dream ?

Travel, meet with new people, communicate with colleagues and make more photos, work and keep improving. And after seeing my photos/works I would like to leave a positive and pleasant mood for my viewers.

Photographer Julia Starr - Night Fate

When did you travel into the artistic world?

Ever since I could pick up crayons and markers and scribble on walls. I enjoyed drawing for many years, and thought I was really good at it and wanted to be an architect. Although it didn’t end up being my true and determined passion, it still led me to digital programs and digital photography when I used my first point-and-shoot camera in 2005. It was also around the time that I joined deviantART and slowly gained understanding of photo-manipulation and photography.

Photographer Julia Starr - Night Fate

What are your plans for the future?

To have my own photography business, and to have my resource website doing very well.

Photographer Julia Starr - Night Fate

Name 3 people that have been your inspiration?

I don’t have any specific people that I currently follow. I mostly inspire myself through all the little things that I do. But years ago when I first started digital art, I was inspired by Liliana Sanchez, Ana Cruz, and Ana Fagarazzi.

Tell us about your artwork – What thoughts you have when you work?

All the possible things that I could create out of the current piece. I may have something in mind, but then it will sometimes drastically change depending how inspired I feel.

Photographer Julia Starr - Night Fate

How often do you make your art?

Whenever I feel truly inspired which could be every other day or week.

Photographer Julia Starr - Night Fate

Did you exhibit your work somewhere?

Not really, although I did display some of it in my high school for awhile.

What is your biggest dream?

To live a long and happy life with my boyfriend, and to share all the great travels awaiting us with many new experiences to share through digital art and photography.

1. When did you travel into the artistic world ??

– It started year 2007 when my friends and I started a local mountaineering group. At first, I had my point-and-shoot with me and later found out that trail and summit views are worth capturing using a more sophisticated camera which is a DSLR. After our first five mountains, I bought a second-hand Canon EOS 350D and began learning and loving photography. I really filled my free time going out in the streets of Manila shooting anything from people, buildings, animals and parks. However, it was really landscape photography which captured my interest. I took photography to another level when I saved money for an ultra-wide angle, sturdy tripod and filters. I later upgraded my camera body to Canon EOS KissX4 and acquired new filters. Aside from photography, I am also doing digital matte paintings, photomanipulation and digital paintings.

Photographer Francis Ansing

2. What are your plans for the future??

– I would like to attend landscape photography workshops. I never had a chance to learn from and shoot with professionals so this 2012 I told myself to attend one. Moreover, I and my mountaineering group will organize more climbs and adventures so that I will be able to shoot more too. One of my plans also is to shoot in other countries such as New Zealand and Peru. There are plenty of wonderful views out there and I know someday I will be able to bring my camera to capture the world with a fresh eye. It is also part of my plans to conduct or be part of big exhibits here in Manila. To do that, I need to make more beautiful photos by upgrading my skills.

photograper

Name 3 people that have been your inspiration?

– The three photographers that contributed much to my interest and drive to keep shooting and make myself a better landscape photographer are Raymond Cruz, Rarindra Prakarsa and Marc Adamus. Looking at the artworks of these three artists can make or break you. The thought ‘I wish I could shoot photos like those’ is my driving force to learn more and keep shooting.

photos

Tell us about your artwork – What thoughts you have when you work?

– When I shoot, aside from manipulating the camera to correctly capture the scene I am also thinking that the photo must also capture the emotions that the scene brings to me as a see it. I wanted to make it sure that the other people who will view my photos will feel the tranquility of a silent lake, hear the sounds of a raging wave, and feel the warmth of a rising sun. Landscape photography is also a way to bring nature close to people.

photographers

How often do you make your art?

– Our regular climb is every two months and I always bring my camera with me. During summer in the Philippines, that is from March to May, I shoot twice a month. If there are no outdoor activities, I go out and shoot parks, churches, market scenes, and building structures. I also do other arts such as digital matte paintings and digital paintings during free time.

photography

Did you exhibit your work somewhere?

– Yes. It was an exhibit conducted by a local photography organization called Artsu Photography Club.

What is your biggest dream?

– My biggest and wildest dream is to supply photos for National Geographic and to be well-known worldwide. It is also my dream to become one of the digital painters or concept artists of any international art-related company.

photographer Andreea Cernestean

When did you travel into the artistic world ??

– I was introduced to the art world at a young age. My father, who has a background in art, wood carving (sculpture) and pencil drawing, tried to teach me drawing and painting (traditional), though somehow growing up, learning to use a computer and messing around with image editing software somehow led to pick up digital art. As a hobby at first.

photographer Andreea Cernestean

What is your plans for the future??

– There’s a lot I’d like to accomplish in the future. Do some more cover art for musicians or authors, headline an exhibit, learn more about 3D art, pick up photography and maybe set up a studio. To most it may sound like I dream big, but I know I’ll get there someday just by taking it all one step at a time.

photo

Name 3 people that has been your inspiration?

– It’s hard to name just a few people, but if I have to select only 3, I would say Karol Bak for having such a unique style that is his signature, Katarina Sokolova for the amazing fantasy art she does and Michael Oswald for being a kind of jack-of-all-trades, since he can juggle styles and themes so effortlessly.

photo

Tell us about your artwork – What thoughts you have when you work?

– That’s an interesting question, one I’ve never been asked before so kind of caught me off guard. I don’t really think of anything in particular. I sort of just phase out and focus 100% on the piece I’m working on at the time. It’s funny because even doing so, I start with an idea then just work around it, change little things here and there that sometimes it ends up looking entirely different from what it was supposed to originally.

How often do you make your art?

– Not as often as I would like. I’m working in Photoshop every day, but since I made it my full time job, it’s more work for clients than it is personal one nowadays.

photography

Did you exhibit your work somewhere?

– I haven’t yet had the opportunity to have an exhibit, but then again I haven’t really been in touch with art galleries and I don’t have an agent to represent me. But it’s definitely something I would like to do.

photographer

What is your biggest dream ?

– That’s a question I get asked often and always reply in the same manner. I try to keep it on the realistic side (it helps to avoid disappointment too), so for now all I want is to keep improving and work on getting my name out there.

Kind regards,
Andreea Cernestean

When did you travel into the artistic world?

– Creative activities in various forms I have been doing for over 25 years. It was so for that many years I worked in advertising. I did a lot of work in graphic designs -like  logos, corporate identities, brand books, etc. I often do work for various artists, photographers and musicians – exhibition promotional materials, catalogs, books, albums and CDs. Photo manipulation, which you see here, I have been doing since 2007.

What is your plans for the future?

It will be to do different creative activities, like : work for clients, participation in exhibitions, socializing with colleagues.

When did you travel into the artistic world ??

Since my youth, I have always had an interest in and a passion for photography but I only decided to actively involve myself /get involved about three years ago.
fotograf rolland flinta

What are your plans for the future??

I plan to further and deepen my photography skills and to acquire more knowledge about the art of photography / the art of taking pictures. There is so much I am keen to explore and discover. For me, photography really is a journey, a journey of continued learning and experimentation. What motivates and occupies me is a quest for perfection.
fotografer

Name 3 people that have been your inspiration?

I was definitely inspired by Richard Avedon exceptionally, by Sally Mann and Herb Ritts. But there are several famous photographers who inspire me again and again.
fotografering

Tell us about your artwork – What thoughts do you have when you work?

Whenever I take pictures there are thousands of thoughts that race through my head. It feels like I am escaping reality and immersing myself in a different world. I generally try to capture the best of each model and to seize the most beautiful moment. By doing so, I very often create images instinctively and spontaneously. Whilst still taking one shot, I am able to visualise the next image in my head. In German we call this “Kopfkino” – cerebral cinema; the power of having a vivid film in one’s head. I am fascinated by the interplay between light and shadows and the sheer variety and magnitude of resulting constellations. I enjoy photography in daylight as I prefer taking images without flash.

Did you exhibit your work somewhere?

Well, I did have requests for several exhibitions but due to the lack of time I unfortunately had to decline all these offers because the locations were too far away. Up to now I was very happy to be published in various papers, magazines and on the internet.
photography

What is your biggest dream ?

With reference to my work, I am dreaming of publishing a photo book with my pictures.
photographer Rebecca Röske

When did you travel into the artistic world??

The first step I did seven years ago. I started as a stock model, made pictures of me for other digital and traditional artists. By seeing all these beautiful works made with my own pictures I tried to do this on my own. Because art was a big part of my life since I was a child I experienced a lot with the new medium – Photoshop. I started with photomanipulations, later I tried Digital Painting and Photo Retouching.

Rebecca Röske photography

What are your plans for the future??

To be my own stock model is still a big part of my art. I have a lot of plans for inspiring photo shootings. And I plan to work round to make more commercial works.

Tell us about your artwork – What thoughts you have when you work?

The thoughts depend on every work that I make. Every picture is an image of me and my life. This is one reason why I use myself as model for my works. I like to take the model in a far unrealistic world without any civilization. There is just a girl like me in her own dream land. There is nothing else just her, her feelings, her thoughts, her personality. My pictures are for all who want the dream away from all this reality.

photo

Name 3 people that have been your inspiration?

Luis Royo is one of my favorite artists. Nobody else has the talent to show so much strength in so beautiful female bodies. I like the atmosphere in Victoria Frances’ picture because of the lovely illustration of loneliness. And I admire the fantastic imagination of Marcela Bolivar.

fotograf

How often do you make your art?

There is now regularity. I make art when there is an image in my mind I have to achieve or when I get a huge moment of inspiration.

Did you exhibit your work somewhere?

I still had no chance to exhibit my works. But I would seize the chance.

fotograf

What is your biggest dream?

I’m still looking for the right dream. Until this the art will help me to find the right way.
