Julia Anna Gospodarou-1041

Introductions: Julia Anna Gospodarou

One of the reasons I am so excited about the next issue of Dynamic Range is because I got to interview a woman that I have admired for quite some time. I love her architectural work and so for you today I am giving you a little glimpse into the work of Julia Anna Gospodarou. I’m sure you will love it as much as I do. There is an amazing quietness to the work. Those of you who have been following me for some time know that I love that in work and it is something I try to get in my own. Hushed tones. While I tend to think of her as doing more architectural work she does do other things as well. I love the photos she has of snow. Another one of my favourite subjects. You could almost say another quiet subject. Her long exposure work is a great inspiration to me and I’m now reading the book that she co-wrote with Joel Tjintjelaar, FROM BASICS TO FINE ART, in the hope of getting …

Latest News and Photos from Melbourne

It seemed to go down well last week combining the Bits and Bobs post with the Weekend Wandering one. It seems that time is becoming something that we are all struggling with and with so many places to go and see work it almost seems selfish to post too often. I am also enjoying have more time to work on my photos and promote myself on other platforms. Dynamic Range Magazine I have to start with this, only a week to go and it looks like we are all set to publish issue 3 next Sunday. It was a hard one to get together, but we got there. It looks fantastic and, if I say so myself, the best one yet. We are so excited about what is in it. There really is something for nearly everyone. I like it having lots of variety. I have part of the cover for you. It looks great, and we are so lucky to be able to showcase some of Julia Anna Gospodarou’s work and I was also …

Introductions: Norbert Rupp

Here we are again and it is time to introduce you to another photographer. I’ve found you someone today through Flickr. I think it is the first time I have really gone searching to find photographers for these Introductions posts there. I’m always amazed at the great quality of photography there. Today’s Introduction is a great photographer too, Norbert Rupp. Turns out he is also a blogger and his blog is Nobsta’s photo blog. Norbert does a lot of architectural images, but there is a simplicity to them which is really good. A simple scene, but it looks so serene, perhaps the black and white help that look as the colour is stripped away. My first questions, where in the world are you? I live in a very rural part in Bavaria/Germany between the big cities Munich and Nuremberg, a few miles away from Ingolstadt, which is known for Audi cars, and from photography point of view an hour drive away from the northern side of the European Alps, which offer many attractions to take pictures in …

Introductions: Robyn Graham

When I was in New York I got to meet this lovely lady. We spent an afternoon together and it is lovely to be able to introduce her to you. She is a portrait photographer, but she does a lot of gorgeous macros as well. I hope you enjoy seeing Robyn Graham’s work. There is such a lovely softness to her work. I am not sure how to describe it, but it seems very delicate, which is so different to what I do. You can see how delicate the flowers are. The lighting is really stunning as well. I asked Robyn where in the world she was. I am located in the United States near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in beautiful Bucks County. My location is perfect for visiting several major cities as well as the shore, which allows me to do day trips to places with fabulous photography opportunities. She has some architecture shots as well, and this is one that I am fairly sure she got the time we were together. It is from the Public Library in …

Weekend Wanderings: Looking Around the City Again

It is getting to that time of the year where places are limited as to where I can go to take photos. I seem to be going into the city a lot. Sometimes it is just to take photos, while other times it is while I’m teaching. I never tire of it. The other day I found myself teaching again and we were taking photos along the lanes and at the graffiti. I like the lanes with the graffiti. It is always changing and every time you go there is something new to look at. I heard on the news the other day how the City of Melbourne are saying that taggers are ruining Hosier Lane. I don’t know how they plan on stopping it, but I do hope they do. I will just leave you with the photos from the earlier part. It is heating up here and could be good to experiment with trying to photograph it, or maybe I can stay indoors and do more writing. I hope you are having a …

Introductions: Peter Hill

When I went to Aireys Inlet on Friday I was discussing with my friend Chris how I didn’t have anyone to introduce to you today. She often gives me the names of people and she came up with another suggestion. She said why don’t you ask Peter Hill. She said his work was amazing, so I looked and she was right. So I asked Peter for permission to feature him here to you. I wasn’t at all surprised to find lots of black and white images, or waterfalls. If Chris recommended his work then there would have to be a lot of those types of images there. I certainly wasn’t disappointed, there were lots of images like that. Beautiful atmospheric images. I asked Peter where in the world he was. I am based in the Blue Mountains, in NSW, Australia. My wife and I have a 100-year old farmhouse on half an acre of gardens and fruit trees. We are surrounded by huge oak trees and clouds. I also spend a lot of time living in inner-city Melbourne. …

USA Wanderings: Walking Around the Financial District in New York

When I spent the day with Stacy and Robert we covered so much of New York. We walked so far. It was fantastic. I think it was the day I realized that New York really was huge. I had heard it was, but I think until you actually go there and try to get around you don’t really understand. I imagine London would be the same too. We walked over 8 miles that day, or 13 kilometres. It was a massive day, my feet were killing me at the end of it, but it was also worth it. I really enjoyed it and will always remember it as one of my favourites. I am just going to leave you with a gallery now. I will put captions under the photos so you know where they are, if I know. I did get a bit lost really, but I had people who knew where to go, so that was good. These photos are from when we got off the train at the new Fulton Station, and …
