We announce the winners in our #abstract #fineart #photography competition! #London @rosie_hardy

When judging this competition I was looking not only for images which were technically well-composed, lit and thought out, but also photography that drew me in and caused me to pause and think more about what was going on behind the scenes of the image, and what the artist was trying to convey.
Amy Bateman’s “Convergence” took my breath away, both aesthetically and technically. I could have let my mind swim in this image for hours, in the blurred lines of space and perspective. The meeting of two opposite waters, strong and soft, calm and powerful, definitely appealed to my emotional tastes!

Richard Maxim’s photograph also caused me to ponder more than just the strong composition and well executed, thought out scene. Playing with the human form in a style which makes one marvel at the female body for the agility and strength, as well as choosing to hide her head in the book lead to more questions than it did answers, which I enjoyed.

Finally, “Review” by Brett Canet-Gibson was incredibly striking and really held my physical and mental gaze. Keeping the subject anonymous (identifiable only by his penetrating stare into the lens) was a fantastically abstract way to play with portraiture. The tones were beautiful, and overall a very worthy winning shot.

We announce judge for our #architecture #photography #photocontest #London http://bit.ly/2dKRSTq

We are honoured to announce the judge for our current architecture photography competition.  Voted as one of the top 14 of the world’s architecture photographers,  Johnny Kerr is an American fine art photographer based in Arizona who has pursued art in various forms since childhood. His college studies and post-graduate vocation concentrated on graphic design but during his late twenties a desire to change careers brought him back to school to study education. Removed from the commercial sector, and creating art solely for himself once again, Johnny found a new voice in the medium of photography.

Self-taught in the craft of photography, Johnny cites his lifelong study of art, along with his graphic design experience and appreciation for minimalist design as having the largest influences on his vision as a fine art photographer.
Since earning his Masters degree, Johnny makes his living teaching photography and devotes his personal time to his family and personal photography projects.
You can see Johnny’s work here and enter the competition until the 31st January.

We speak to Stian Nesoy winner of our #landscape #photography competition #photocontest #Norway

I entered the competition because the scope of the competition was very much in line with the type of photography I enjoy the most. I’m humbled by the honour, especially seeing the strong competition from other participants.
