I'm a brazilian photographer and I was born in São Paulo. Since my childhood I have been atracted to some classic painters such as Leonardo da Vince, Rubens, Caravaggio and others. I have always wanted to be a painter and create some pieces of art, however, I don't even know how to draw a circle, so I decided to create my own pictures. I guess that's what differs me from the other photographers. I always try ...
David Tan: "Collaboration. Trust. Friendship. Models have also flown in from other countries just to shoot the Tainted Perfection series with me or to do testshoots at their own expense"
I was born in Singapore, but lived in Australia and the USA for almost ten years. I started photography when I was at the university in Melbourne, shooting mainly sports for the college yearbook. It is important to already ‘see’ the image of your mind on sports photography as you need to anticipate and capture the moment. There is no second chance! I also attended law school at Harvard, and I am now a full-time...

Photographer Guilherme Licurgo: "I am a young photographer and my work is about passion, I love what I do, I feel what I do.To me, the most important thing is to do what you love, with love. The images just come out"
I became a photographer two years ago, I worked as a model when I was 14 and I quit modeling when I turned 18. That time, I used to be very excited to see the set, what the photographers were doing and not only to pose to their lens. I graduated in Law, in Rio de Janeiro and two days after my graduation party, I went into the conflict: "I don't want to do that", I brought a suitcase and moved to São Paulo, whe...

Photographer Thomas Watkin: "I don't really work on "projects," or at least I don't think of it that way. It's one picture at a time, a process that occasionally leads to sequencing of interesting ideas"
Main influences on photography? I spend very little time looking at other photographers' work. I don't have time. I am more influenced by the work of artists prior to the arrival of photography, or who were not photographers, Brueghel, Goya, Eakins, Gainsborough, Hopper, there are many. The special moments and the modeling life I have never captured a perfect picture; I would be happy to let you know when I do. S...

Hi to you. It’s nice to speak with you as well. I live in New York now, but I lived in Texas when I started making photos. I was studying architecture in university and took a photo class.

I’ve been in photography since I was 16, for fun at first. At 20 I began to write reports about my experiences on extended foreign trips. That’s how travel and wildlife photography became my first field of activity as a photographer. And now in the last 10 years the focus of my photography has been on people—in particular, the area of fashion photography with male models. His origins: analogue photog...

Photographer Julian Laidig: "My biggest project is my very own online magazine HOLE (http://www.hole-magazine.com), which presents stylists, hair and make-up artists, photographers, designers and of course models"
My way to photography was more out of desperation than conviction, to understand this as my future career. Due to the Austrian education system I had to choose by the age of 15, to do either a normal school with graduation or to do a professional training, including graduation. As it made more sense to me to do the professional training, I was even more motivated to find something suitable. I wasn‘t g...
