“When you are quiet and observe everyday life there is drama and emotion even in stillness - that is the story my photography conveys."

New Earth II - Fine Art Photograph 15 x 23 in.

“I consider myself blessed to have had a mix of experiences: a father who was a professional photographer and worked with the renowned fashion photographer Norman Parkinson whose stories helped to open my eyes to the world; a large family with all the accompanying joys and challenges; 34 years of international development experience with the United Nations and an innate passion for travel and adventure. Together these experiences led me to photography as a form of expression for what I see around me. I practice documentary photography out of which I see, compose and develop pieces of fine art. Other amazing photographers have influenced my work including the advice in David Hurn's On Being a Photographer,  Robert Doisneau, workshops with National Geographic’s photographers like Raul Touzon, Arthur Meyerson and Sebastian "Suki" Belaustegui. More recently, I have enjoyed the generosity of Robert Rodriguez Jr. and his beautifully lit and textured landscapes. My work is a mosaic of influences, lessons, social development experiences and life in general. My photography is in progress as there is so much more to see and learn.”

Eric Wiles Photography

"As a world traveler at an early age, the appreciation of natural beauty and the allure of man-made objects sparked my creative imagination. Photography allows me the opportunity to capture moments in time and share this expression of beauty through Still Life and Fine Art Imaging."

Winter Last Storm - B&W photograph

"Born in Chicago IL., USA amidst great architectural and old world surroundings, I groomed an eye for the beauty of art and the creativity of photography. Being a world traveler at an early age instilled the appreciation of the earth's beauty and the allure of man-made objects. This fascination is inspired by nature and very well-designed man-made objects, as nature to me is unparalleled in beauty, diversity, and design. As such I have had the opportunity to work with some of the world top commercial magazines and great art galleries in which I am truly grateful of."

“From hazy monuments and architectural constructions to intricate natural elements or landscapes, Eric Wiles captures the beauty of symmetry in uniquely balanced compositions which elevate natural or industrial design details into fine artworks. In black & white or bright color his images stand out for their clarity of perspective as well as a distinctive delicate feeling they communicate to the viewer.”

Paolo Bongianino

“In my opinion, an image only is not enough; it must somehow move the imagination of the viewer and emotion in him: only then can I say I have reached my target when I shot. This contemporaneity does not always happen, but it happens even more often than I can imagine. Image and emotion: this is the summary of my approach to photography.”

Red Leaves - 100% 308 g/sqm cotton paper 40 x 50 cm

Born in Trivero in 1956 and living in Milan, Italian artist Paolo Bongianino is married with two children. He received his first camera in the early sixties and has since never given up looking at the world around him through the lens of his camera with curiosity and attention.

“After a career in management and also considering the economic downturn Italy has been suffering in the last decade, I decided to devote my time to photography and fine art prints. All my works are printed only in fine art inkjet printing in limited edition on top quality cotton paper, the only exception being the “mini fine art prints,” A4 prints on cotton paper without quantity limitation.

In my opinion, an image only is not enough; it must somehow move the imagination of the viewer and emotion in him: only then can I say I have reached my target when I shot. This contemporaneity does not always happen, but it happens even more often than I can imagine. Image and emotion: this is the summary of my approach to photography.

“immaginiedemozioni,” “images&emotions” is the brand name I have chosen for presenting my works on Facebook and the internet (www.immaginiedemozioni.it) where all contact details are available. I have also joined the "fronteversismo" art movement producing the "2in1" photo works showing two images one on each side of the support, a detailed description available on www.2in1.photo.

I also have my own page in PhotoVogue site, where 39 works are displayed having been approved by the site curators, the address of the page is:”

Ute Eiselt

"With my macro photography, I expose small aspects of our surroundings on large scale to express and emphasize the fullness and beauty around us that we so easily miss."

Upwards, Alu-Dibond 90 x 60 cm

"With my macro photography, I expose small aspects of our surroundings on large scale to express and emphasize the fullness and beauty around us that we so easily miss. Clearness and haziness cause a charisma of both peace and dynamics. Combined with the vitality of color I want my artworks to raise awareness of art being everywhere already. We just need to have the eyes to see it. Working without a tripod and usually not implementing photo-editing computer programs I try to capture my unadulterated perception on camera. This veracity enables the viewer to act out his or her own imagination and offers freedom for personal associations.  All my photographs are sold in limited editions and I also do photographic works for business websites."

Sam Barrow

"Photography is my way of entering a magical ‘Between World’ – a world that is more vital and real than our everyday illusory experience would have us believe. Playing with mystery and fooling with dark and light allows me to reveal half-truths within my sanctuary of harmony and serenity."

Leah - Digital photography on canvas 200 x 300 mm

"My images have been described as ethereal renderings delving into the mysteries inscribed in New Zealand landscapes. Creating a sense of space and stillness, with a dash of playfulness and mystery are instinctual tendencies in my life as well as my art. When I introduce a character into my landscapes, it gives me scope to explore these mysteries in a way that’s a little more overt than in the landscape alone. In the Stasis Series, some of which are shown here, I do this by suggesting possible open-ended narratives involving paleontological and galactic mysteries that, in all reality, are now organically flooding into our collective consciousness and being veraciously queried on every continent and in every culture like never before."

Sam Barrow was born and currently resides in Christchurch, New Zealand. Today he works as a self-taught, fine art landscape and creative portrait photographer. His formal training and work are in the earth sciences, but he has also studied Landscape Architecture, Music and Publishing and draws upon all of these in his work. Working intuitively, he transmutes the intangible spirituality of the local New Zealand terrain into atmospheric and often painterly photographs that reveal a universe more dynamic and alive than our daily experiences allow us to perceive. As well as a permanent display in Christchurch at Windsor Gallery, Sam’s work has been exhibited in New York and Italy, with shows in these and other cities planned in 2019.

Egon Gade Artwork

"I see things. It is what I am here for. In a pushbutton world where everything is digital and everyone a photographer, ambiance is distinction. We all have different limits and you must sometimes see the edge to find yourself."

Parrot Tulip Color digital photograph
Buttercups Color digital photograph

Egon Gade works out of Copenhagen for Danish and Scandinavian design companies. International design icons such as Bang & Olufsen, Fritz Hansen, Maersk Sealine, Carlsberg, Georg Jensen, Royal Copenhagen are amongst some of his clients. Simplicity best describes Egon's pictures. Growing-up in a country with famous designers like Arne Jacobsen, Paul Kjærholm and Hans J. Wegner has significantly influenced his work as a photographer.

Egon's career as a commercial photographer began in 1981. At the age of 22 he opened a studio in the center of Copenhagen where he began specializing as a still life photographer, which was rather unusual in Denmark at that time. His client list grew as he started working for companies including Carlsberg, Royal Copenhagen Porcelain, and Georg Jensen Silver. During the 1980s and 90s he became known in Denmark as 'The Beer Photographer’. Egon has worked on many international campaigns and has won numerous awards in the Clio Show, Cannes Lion, Lurzers Archive, 200 Best Photographers. His fields of expertise include Architecture, Still Life, Portraits, Interior, Landscape.

"I see things. It is what I am here for. In a pushbutton world where everything is digital and everyone a photographer, ambiance is distinction. We all have different limits and you must sometimes see the edge to find yourself.

Technology should be exploited, but you must know when to stop. It is not a repair kit. I used to love life in the darkroom, but the printer is no lesser match. Although I usually know exactly where I want to go, things can still change before your eyes. I always improvise in the process. An actor’s portrait or a grand studio setup, all I want is for you to see what I see."
