best of the best

It’s all good and well to throw superlatives around, but in this edition I’m proud to report that we are bringing you the opinions and work of some of the best photographers working today. Having said that, it’s something I strive to do for every edition. Lynsey Addario is a brilliant photojournalist. American Photo magazine described her as one of the “five most influential photographers of the last 25 years” – high praise indeed. To date, in her two-decade career, she’s covered conflict and humanitarian crises in a variety of hotspots around the globe, and her images are making a difference, to people and policy. The Pulitzer Prize-winner is also a New York Times bestseller, for her memoirs, which were published in 2015. Now, finally, after 23 years in the game,…

Charles Davis With an intense passion for photography and extremely keen interest for the last nine years, it’s only been the last two years that Charles Davis has been able to turn this into a full-time occupation. A specialisation in Australian wildlife, Davis’ niche focuses on alpine wildlife. Predominantly self-taught, he has honed his photographic skills via YouTube and a network of friends who were already established professionals. Davis first got into photography when he was 21. A competitive snowboarder at the time, he was doing a great deal of travel and felt the need to capture the amazing things he was seeing. In Canada at the time, he took the opportunity to photograph bears and eagles. “It didn’t take me long to realise this was the photography I enjoyed most,” he…

q&a kelly tunney

Before embarking on a career as a professional wedding photographer, ACT-based Kelly Tunney originally followed a traditional path, working as a public servant. But not for very long. Fortunately, she discovered photography, and her life’s never been the same since. Her images embody the way she relates to the world – they’re candid, honest, fearless, and warm; and they always manage to find the amazing in everyone. Tunney relishes in the agony and ecstasy of imagining and creating contrasts to play with in her images. She secretly enjoy the rush that comes with the fear of pushing boundaries as far as they can be moved. A Master of Photography, with two gold bars, Tunney is the current AIPP ACT Wedding Photographer of the Year – an accolades she’s received five times. She’s…

solving the creativity conundrum

Imposing limits on yourself leads to new ways of seeing and doing, and therefore more creative outcomes compared to if you didn’t impose the limitations. In his famous TED talk, artist Phil Hansen declared: “We need to first be limited in order to become limitless”. Patricia Stokes is an expert on the subject of creativity, adjunct professor of psychology at Barnard College at Columbia University, and the author of Creativity from Constraint: The Psychology of Breakthrough, and Creativity from Constraints in the Performing Arts. She explains that both limitations and creativity demand a change “in a current style or solution”. To move beyond a limitation you, need to use your creativity in order to come up with an alternative way to execute a task. To further illuminate creativity, Stokes has framed…

a changing façade architectural photography

Buildings say a lot about culture. They say a lot about us and can inform the way we live. Traditionally, people who enjoyed engaging with design and architecture could do so via professional publications or specialised magazines. These were characterised by high-end production values and glorious photographs that took readers on a journey of the buildings and their surrounds. Now, anyone can explore and engage with architecture with the click of a mouse. Images of buildings are everywhere, so what is architectural photography and what makes it different to other genres? Reality check Dianna Snape is a Melbourne-based photographer specialising in architecture, interior, and landscape photography. Her work features regularly in leading architectural and design magazines. For Snape, the commercial reality and discipline of documenting a building is very different to the…
