I am an amateur photographer who enjoys photography in my free time. I’ve been deeply curious about photography since childhood, when I first witnessed a Polaroid producing a picture. Although I’ve been an infrequent photographer since high school, I have always been intrigued by the fact that one can record something that he/she sees (with a camera). Although I missed out on photography classes in school (as the course filled up so quickly), and I lacked the basic understanding of such things as the exposure triangle, I never lost interest or gave… Read More

Name: Eddie Ku From: Taiwan Age:43 Gear: Canon 6D I’m a self-educated photographer, based in Taipei. Before my photographic career I was a professional snooker coach, been playing snooker for 28 years. I bought my Canon 6D in May 2014, using it for Snooker tournaments.  But I found something of real interest to me, which is the human expression, that means everything in a photograph.  So I try to find out the natural part of every human being and by a chance, as a result now I’m a fashion photographer.

I moved from Canada to Mexico to live permanently in 1993, but didn’t discover photography until late 2011. A little odd since Mexico is a fantastically photogenic country with a long and significant history of remarkable photographers. Basically, owing to my being a life long motorcyclist, I began taking pictures of the places I would ride to so I could share them with friends and family. I work as an English language narrator for corporate/industrial/educational videos and documentaries and often do the translation, too. In between jobs, I teach English as a… Read More

Capturing and working with females in portrait and glamour photography is not new for me but having recently posted my first blog, took me into another realm of life away from my day to day work as an executive in a legal firm.  This has truly inspired and given me a new meaning to my being.  As a person I am passionate for sophisticated instrumentation and fine engineering and this has really fueled my passion for photography.  Enjoying female portrait photography as an amateur, makes me really appreciate elegant work without any… Read More

Born in Lisbon, Portugal I discovered photography late in life in 2007. But since then I’ve been avidly interested in photographing landscape, city and architectural, people and lately astro-photography. I like either strong colours or black & white. As a Lisbonner I had to do a book about my city and so I self-published “Lisbon in Black & White” in 2013 that I hope you like. “Lisboa in Black & White” is a bilingual(Portuguese/English) photography book, with seductive images of Lisbon, with most of the iconic places in the city. It’s printed… Read More

Walter Schernstein – Featured IPA member

My name is Walter Schernstein. I am a photographer and I live in Germany, in the Ruhr area. I photograph as a photo-journalist and working on freely chosen projects. One of my projects is photography at dusk. The moment between the day and the night, the time of transition. The special lighting so creates new. Photography is a “door opener”, it allows me to explore my environment, through photography I learn. I learn people and know things that I otherwise would not have met. My free photographic work I exhibit in museums… Read More

  Bio I am a Colombian mother of 3 beautiful children that moved to Miami in 1993…then I moved to Canada 7 years ago.  I never before had the opportunity to land my hands on a camera . The first time was when I met my husband when he taught me how to take pictures.  Having a camera in my hands for me is like writing a book… I love to capture the soul of  my images and express myself.  I love the idea of looking though the lens and being able to… Read More

  Bio   Milan Swolfs I am from Antwerp, Belgium and was born in 1986. I graduated in International Communication. In my daily life I work as an Online Marketing Manager and partly as a commercial self-employed photographer specialized in portrait and wedding photography with a touch of vintage. From my early childhood I traveled a lot thanks to my parents. That’s how I discovered the joy of photography, rather than buying souvenirs I captured them. I always focused on people rather then on landscapes. In 2013 I traveled to Japan and… Read More
