Why do you love photography ?
When I first asked myself this question, I thought, “Well, it’s obvious, isn’t it? It’s what I do for a living! I never get tired of picking up my camera and “going to work.” But this doesn’t really answer the question, does it? It just states that I enjoy photography.
I enjoy photography because it has caused me to fall in love with light and see the world around me with fresh eyes every single day. It has enabled me to become an artist with photography as a mean to express feelings and be creative.
Photography tip/trick for readers
Photography was first a mean to document what I was seeing out there. I did learn how to expose properly, understand the ins and outs of my equipment (lens, buttons, accessories, etc.). Overall, I built my technical expertise, so I could be confident to photograph in any situation. The next phase was harder to master when I moved from a documentary approach to fine art photography. To make an image, I had to have a concept, do research, get inspired by other artists (painters, photographers, poets, writers, etc.). Each click became meaningful. What i really learned was to write and write more! As Ansel Adams said: “There is nothing worse than a sharp image of a fuzzy concept.”
Favorite photography equipment
Practicing is the key ingredient. When most people take on a new “hobby”, like golf, soccer, cooking, etc … they practice. Photography is the same. By training your eye, you will become more comfortable with your gears and your craft. Unfortunately there is not one camera that does it all. I have a fast camera for action and wildlife (Canon 1Dx), a high resolution camera for landscape (Digital Hasselblad), and a portable camera for street photography (Sony A7RII). I mostly use fix lenses so I can get best output quality and be very familiar to the ideal distance to my subject.
Favorite place to visit for amazing photographs (and why ) ?
I have traveled to over 90 countries and all the continents. Every places I visited is breath taking for various reasons (historical, beauty, inspiring, etc.). What I found is that multiple visits to the same place leads to more in depth photograph and inspiring conceptual execution.
The places I visit these days have a “time sensitive” effect too. Overall the world is changing at a rapid pace and most of the changes are irreversible and permanent.
