Fabrizio Romagnoli – Florence My passion for photography began over thirty years ago, I have studied the technical and photographic composition, through film time learning the techniques of developing and printing, up to lead the digital and the photo-editing. In my shots trying to freeze moments of reality or give shape through the management of the essential element of photography: the light. Despite having gained experience in various types of photography I prefer portraits and photos of people in general, trying to capture their essence in a gesture, an expression that characterizes….

I always loved art. My mother, an architect and fine portrait artist, took me sketching, learning composition and colour theory. She also had a collection of books with large colour plates — including Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Lautrec, Cezanne, Renoir, Degas, Modigliani, Michelangelo, Cezanne and Goya. I spent hours just gazing — and not just at the nudes — a great source of wonder. Photography began for me in 1968, when I was 18, shooting with a Canon range-finder, mostly B&W and occasional slide film, when affordable.  I am entirely self-taught, having learnt… Read More

Hello everyone: What an honor to share a bit of myself with you. Photography is a relatively new pursuit of mine and I feel lucky to be inspired every day by your gorgeous photos on IPA. I was raised in upstate New York in the Catskill Mountains where I left my childhood heart and then, further north near Buffalo. I had a tough beginning, losing my father to cancer when I was 13. I threw myself into academics and the theatre. To this day, I take delight in learning anything and everything…. Read More

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.

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

As an entrepreneur in creative industries and also a musician in Indonesia, personally photography is a hobby that can improve creativity and a medium to sharpen our instincts to see the meaning of life aside from always be grateful for the greatness of God that given to the human race. I learned photographing autodidact. I started using DSLR cameras and then along with the development of technology, I used a smaller mirrorless camera and easy to carry, until finally I knew manual lens and particularly liked the results. In the end, my… Read More
