For me, the camera and post-processing was a better tool for the transfer of my inner world. Not knowing the laws of photos I get enough interesting shots, with its history. The fact that I had previously experienced with pictorial plane gave my photos intuitive clarity. It’s catchy. I have never been interested in commercial orders, I have the freedom to express. I got it when he first presented master classes and teaching people – the perfect compromise! I like to teach, maybe it’s hereditary – my grandfather was a teacher in history. Rarely do a series of shots, I often solitary portraits, concentrates in itself all the stress of the moment. I always liked to catch peeping views directly into the soul of the viewer. More……

Portraits of Janosch Abel (USA)

Portraits / Pharell_Williams

I love to take portraits that are calm and on point. Working together with the subject as a team I can build up a trust that help me direct the shoot in a natural way.In my photography, the location, action and probs have to underline the personality. Before those things pull the focus away from the subject I prefer to shoot the person in front of a neutral backdrop.For me its important to take portraits that are unique. The main part of my work is the trust and confidence that you can see in every subject. My goal in every portrait sitting is to find an honest and direct way to show the subject. More….

Click´s by Pepe Castro (Spain)
Goyo Jimenez

When I have a scene framed, and measured, and I press the shutter, that sound, that “click” has always hypnotized me ever since I was little.I love my job and I believe this is the same feeling for any photographer who prides himself to be it. I also admit the benefit of being able to live from something one really likes.  I haven’t spent very much time as a professional in this job, only 10 years, but it has been enough to make me realize towards where I wanted to focus my artistic work, and to be able to give it a meaning. I refer to it as artistic work because as a professional I accomplish a lot of different kinds of works that have nothing to do with it. More….

To choose projects that have real meaning for me. That way you can add depth and meaning to your storytelling. More….
