My latest live photography interview for Paul Griffiths’ show “Photography Live and Uncut” and other photography news, black and white fine art tutorial collection and more.
Since I’m not necessarily sending out a newsletter, I thought of including from time to time in my usual posts a few that have to do with my latest activity and the latest things I publish, be them tutorials, interviews or different other offers (workshops, products etc.) – mostly educative info that can help other fellow photographers in their quest for creating fine art photography and (en)Visionography. This is one of those posts.
Live Photography Interview
I will start with a live photography interview I gave recently to Paul Griffiths, for his show Photography Live and Uncut, a great show where Paul has interviewed some very inspiring photographers over time. I’m actually very proud to have been invited to this show, considering the artists who were his guests in the past, and I will mention only a few very well known names like Michael Kenna , Alain Briot, Irene Kung, Rick Sammon, David Brookover, David DuChemin , Jonathan Chritchley, Bruce Percy, and I could keep going. I’m extremely proud to have joined such a great array of outstanding photographers and artists. I recommend you to watch all these interviews and generally to watch Paul’s show because there is a lot to learn from the things his guests share.
In this interview I am taking of course about photography, in general and in detail, about long exposure photography, black and white photography, fine art photography, about gear and how to suse it creatively, about how to express yourself in art, how to conceive and proces your images. I’m generally trying to cover as much as possible to make it a very instructive interview, and Paul’s questions helped a lot in guiding the discussion towards a lot of different interesting subject.
I’m also explaining how I created some of my images and what can help in different situation so you get an images as close as possible to what you have in mind. Here is one of the images I’m talking about, among others, explaining how I created it and why it was so challenging. It is an image I’ve shot in the Jewish Museum designed by Daniel Libesking in Berlin. You can watch the interview to see how I made this image.
I hope you will enjoy the interview, that it will give you useful information, and I would love to hear your impressions in the comments.
Another thing that will be useful from educative point in view is a collection of tutorials I published recently, where I gathered together my most popular tutorials on black and white photography, my guides and making of posts for my images, so they can be found easily and without needing to dig too deep into me website. It was a suggestion I got from many of you so I hope this will help.
On this occasion I also want to thank everyone very much for your enthusiastic response to the tutorials and other things I publish and the many emails filled with good words that I have received. I’m truly grateful and I’m happy what I share is useful.
As you know, my aim is not only to do photography or to make my photography well known, but to help educating other artists so they can create themselves what they wish to create. This is why I’m promoting (en)Visionography as a new way of thinking about photography and a new way of creating it. This is why I do all my educational work, with workshops, mentoring courses and through this blog.
My dream is a world where all the artists can freely create based on their vision and where they have the tools to do it. What I want to help in building this world by offering some to others the tools taht worked for me.
Here is where you can find the collection of Tutorials on fine art black and white photography and (en)Visionography.
New York Workshop 2016 – A few spots left
There is not so much time left till 2016 and then to the New York (en)Visionography workshop that will take place on May 27-29 and that has just a few more spots left, a workshop I intend as a very special event, even more special than my previous workshops. If you’ll be there you will see what I mean. I’m working on preparing some very interesting surprises and I’m sure you will love those surprises.
We will go deep into studying black and white photography, architecture and beyond, studying (en)Visionography and how to find your vision and personal style, and of course on studying black and white fine processing with live demonstrations and detailed presentations of my black and white processing workflow with Photography Drawing. I can guarantee you it will be a turning point in your fine art photography evolution. Have a look at some testimonials of my past students to see what they think and how my workshops and courses helped them.
Here is where you can sign up for New York (en)Visionography Workshop 2016, May 27-29. As you see, New York Workshop has a brand new banner, part of a new graphic direction I’m working on.

One more piece of news on my list for today, something I’m happy about, my latest nominations for the 10th edition of Black and White Spider Awards, where 4 of my images were nominated in the Professional contest for Architecture Category.
