No matter your subject or shooting style, taking part in prestigious photo competitions gets your work noticed. Preparing photos for judging is also a great way to set yourself a new creative challenge, and curate a strong body of work. The Sigma Amateur Photographer of the Year has been the country’s largest amateur photography contest for a number of years, and certainly results in the most popular online gallery of its kind. Each year the quantity of entries increases, and the calibre of images improves. The 2017 competition amassed a record 9337 submissions across the competition’s 11 categories, many of which prove that advanced photographic technologies and techniques, such as focus stacking, aerial imaging and time-lapse, are no longer reserved just for the pros. Within last year’s winning imagery we saw the…

It was a scorcher of a summer’s day at the camping ground, and, to offer some relief from the heat, Bevan set up a makeshift tub for his young daughter, Indah. Sitting on the grass close to her, he snapped away as Indah splashed. “I began encouraging her to splash bigger and bigger so I could snap away a few shots of her having…

so you want to be an adventure photographer?

“I love the concept of capturing ordinary people doing incredible things,” he explains; “there’s definitely some saturated areas of photography, but I feel there are fewer people who will put their body on the line to get an incredible shot.” With most forms of photography, there exists a necessary distance between photographer and subject; the artist shoots something while remaining apart from it. When it comes to adventure photography, though, that distance is eradicated. Adventure photographers don’t just shoot an adventure, they are on an adventure — in the thick of it, with every wild thrill and dangerous spill that entails. For those who feel that adventure runs in their veins, we have spoken to some of the region’s most intrepid photographers to discover what it takes to put life and limb…

humans of south auckland

A person’s relationship with the place they come from is inevitably complex. When you love the community you come from but only ever see it represented in negative stereotyping by outsiders and the media, that relationship can become one of fierce, defensive pride. The need to celebrate the diverse, overlooked truths and to kick back against the unfair caricatures becomes something of a duty. At least, that’s clearly how the devoted storytellers behind Humans of South Auckland feel. Initially set up in the mould of Brandon Stanton’s hugely popular street photoblog, Humans of New York, the project was born of a desire to redress the stigmatized reputation of Auckland’s informally defined southern suburbs. Founded by Jasmine Jenke, and run by a team of volunteers, the online Humans of South Auckland project…

lighting a labyrinth

“I always wanted to be an architect, to construct, to build something material,” he explains, “but I work with light, so I thought, let’ s use this space to create structures with light, to create visible structures that were not possible to do physically” A tiny village tucked in among the grassy plains and craggy hills of Patagonia, El Hoyo is host to a remarkable secret. Amid the scenic forestry, pleasant mountain slopes, and crystalline waters of the southernmost region of South America where El Hoyo is located is hidden an 8000m labyrinth: 2200m of winding pathway surrounded by immaculately manicured shrubbery walls. This secreted labyrinth is currently muse to renowned Argentinian photographer Alejandro Chaskielberg. Known for his long-exposure night-time photography, combining photojournalism with an artistic curiosity, the photographer was naturally seduced…

a compelling commentary

“Back in those days, we were fed a diet of American television, like Disneyland, kind of a numb, Christian approach to life itself,” the photographer recalls. “A lot of people in those situations come out with a slightly rebellious nature, and I think I was one of them” Kevin Capon knows what it is to be hated. This was never his intention, of course — it was thrust upon him — but the thoughtful photographer manages to find silver linings even in the miasma of hate. “I have to say, once you get used to being hated, it’s not so bad,” the artist, who now approaching his 60th birthday, explains mirthfully. “You either come to terms with it, or it crushes you; and if you come to terms with it, you become…
