Two weeks ago I was browsing around the internet looking for some interesting thought about Instagram in relation to photography and I ended up on this interesting article Me and Sandy on Instagram. It gave me a completely different prospective from most of the material on the net. Instagram as a different view, a different way to document, either the own life or events. It’s another platform with a different audience, looking more for the “front page” photos. So right
Three weeks ago I was at my local library, my main source for printed material, and my eyes were captured by the cover page of TIME. An awesome photo composition of portraits representing today’s Australia.
Call it coincidence, the photographer (and author for the Instagram article) in both cases is Andrew Quilty. I did not waste any time and I contacted him. The interview that came out was just great, 15 minutes of inspiring comments and suggestions. Andrew loves sharing the own experience “I love my job and I encourage everybody that wants to do photography to pursue it ….it’s about passion and love, if you have that you don’t really need advice……..Have a personal connection with the subject your are shooting…..do photos that create reaction”
Many thanks again to Andrew and don’t forget to subscribe to the monthly email to avoid missing any upcoming article, great photos, interviews and much more.
