Kim Landgraf: My Choices

Copyright: Kim Landgraf.

Welcome to Kim.

Kim has already solved the first task and he has done it well. He has written down his vision, his mentors and pointed to some of the images he admires.

There is an interesting difference from Kim’s choices to those of Elisabeth Maurice and Stefanie LePape. Kim has chosen contemporary ideals and not names that you normally see mentioned as possible mentors. Two of them are even first and foremost portrait photographers. That, however, shall not hold us back.

Good luck with it Kim.

By the way, I really like the image for your have chosen for your presentation here. The Vespa shot. Great.

My vision

I want to become a good photographer.
To see, find and explore the beauty of people, scenes and situations.
Be moved and move others.
Practically: explore the possibilities of portraiture; find out just how one captures usable scenes; get a clear and easy grip on processing.
And overall and in the end: find some style.

My mentors

Thomas Leuthard (street portraiture; stumbling over his work and reading his books made me start in the first place)
Rui Palha (for his scenes and the look)
Kostas Maros (for portraits, scenes and look)

My favorites

    Hi Knut! Sorry for having missed this message of yours .. yes, I am on my first task and I decided that it’s completed 🙂
    I just can’t find the place where to post the links to my two photos I labeled “VG I” and “VG II” for two trials at “Visual Gig”. Please leave a note to let me know if you don’t find the post anywhere else (I might still find the place ..)
    Many thanks and all best!
    Kim
