We are delighted to announce our judge for next month’s Festival! @photopositive #photography #London

We’ll be joined by David Newton,  a professional photographer and filmmaker with a love for the outdoors, travel and natural world. He’s known for his versatility and ability to tackle most subjects with a minimum of fuss. He’s used by some of the biggest brands in the imaging industry (Canon, SanDisk, Manfrotto, Lastolite) as a brand ambassador because of his imagery and because of his ability to teach and present to audiences.  You can see more of David’s work here.

Congratulations to Leonardo Schenato Barroso winner of our monthly #photocontest reflections #photography

Leonardo small
ABOUT THE IMAGE:
This photograph was taken in the city of Curitiba, PR, Brazil. The image captured the instant when several urban artistic interventions were reflected on a rain puddle, along with some more elements. What really caught me on this image was, at first, the intense contrast between the outside – shown by the unfinished window cut and its reflect – and the inside, shown in the rest of the scene. I mean: to me, in this image, it really looks like reality became a picture on the wall. After I took it, other thing that called my attention was the difference between the real window, where we can see some buildings, and the reflected window, where we can see the sky. So, it’s a reflection, but it shows a different thing than what it reflects. Ain’t that peculiar? The letters “CWB”, in the title, refer to the IATA Code of Curitiba. The urban interventions registered on the photo were made by Artestenciva, Bruno Romã, Paula Ariana Calory (PAC) and other unidentified artists.
ABOUT ME:
Photography enthusiast born in Curitiba, PR, Brazil, currently living in Irati, PR, Brazil. Grandson of a classic style painter, gets interested in beautiful landscapes since the early years. Started studying the incredible art of photography in 2007, during the Journalism graduation, specially at the Photojournalism classes. Made an internship at the university`s photo lab. After college, diversified his knowledge with courses about different types of photos and started to take part at photographic trips around Brazil. Started photography expositions in 2016, when his picture “The Owl’s Sunrise in Guaratuba Beach” won a photographic competition organized by the Federal University of Paraná (UFPR), and became the cover photo of the “Guaju” magazine, one of the university’s scientific publications.
