Photographer of the week: Younes Bounhar

Our photographer of the week is Younes Bounhar, a landscape, travel and architecture photographer.
Quoting Younes, here is what summarizes his current lifestyle :
“I eat, sleep and breathe photography.
It wasn’t always like this, but the last few years have changed my life for the better: I now…get up at crazy hours, go out in the rain, snow or sleet, fall into rivers, run away from waves, drive myself to the border of exhaustion, but most of all I have a blast doing it all! ”

I am sure this is what most photographers would call an excellent lifestyle!
I leave you to enjoy 10 of Younes’ best pictures, you can always visit his website for his full works.

Photographer of the week: Gerald Verdon

Our photographer of the week is Gerald Verdon. Born and raised in Switzerland and living between Lisbon, Portugal and Switzerland where he mainly works as a translator.

Photography was his first true passion as a teenager, very early he installed a dark room in his house and learned by reading and practicing. He then left serious photography for studies and history/law.

In 2004 he bought his first digital camera and got back in the game. He now works exclusively with Leica M8 simply because it was the closest to his young photographer’s experience and gives control over every aspect of his photographs.

Gerald’s work is foremost on the street and his pet subjects are people and social issues. Here is a powerful and inspiring quote from Gerald to best explain his passion for photography : “I strongly believe that photography still is a powerful medium to describe and help to understand our world, and as such it should constantly cross the artificial borders between, art, document and journalism.”

After such a beautiful trip into Gerald’s personal life and point of views, I leave you to enjoy 10 of his selected pictures.
You can also check out his site, portfolio or get in touch with him on google plus.

Photographer of the week: Verne Varona

Our photographer of the week is Verne Varona, one of adidap readers. Verne does varied work and one facet of his work is Monet-like photographs that are all done in camera, with very minor sharpening or slight saturation.

He took up photography in the late 70s and bought his first digital in 2005. He loves colorful, painterly scenes and has been developing a style that he calls “Aqua-Impressionism.”

Images that evoke emotion seize his full attention. He tries to capture images that convey the gamut of emotion and  loves the abstract photo’s that suggest.

Verne was a top finalist in Canon’s Project Imagination from over 100,000 entries last September. I leave you to enjoy 10 pictures of his curious and unique style. You can always check out his website for more.
