Janis Tafoya - The Artist's Interview

'I find inspiration from going to the Rocky Mountains in Colorado...each time is like the first time..…it takes my breath away… A picture I love…I keep a list of things I want to paint and can get inspiration from these…I have tons of reference material and I look through books…'

Colin Price - The Street Photographer's Interview

'My aim is to document everyday life and society, candidly capture emotion, humour, and soul, and to do this I need to be a part of the scene, to blend in and avoid undue attention and yet remain sufficiently detached in order to set the composition for the final capture.'

Colin Price - The Street Photographer's Interview

An Interview with Nature & Wildlife Photographer Belinda Greb

'You can say my love of photography is like one of those love stories where two people meet, are attracted to each other, but lots of obstacles get in the way until after years of being just friends, with the right timing and focus, the passion ignites.'

An Interview with Abstract Artist Duane Stearman

'I had gone through a divorce and a break up from a woman. I was in love with 2 different people plus my 5 children were being held back from me and my business went belly up. While this was going on I had taken myself off of pharmaceuticals. Basically, I went crazy, I had been on Ambien for 3 years. I didn’t sleep for 3 months, so I painted all night. '

Ismo Räisänen - The Photographer's Interview

'It wasn’t until my early 20s that I really got the spark into photography. I was looking through my parents’ photo albums and found some really nice landscape pictures from family holidays. Could I be able to capture pictures like that? I wanted to try and bought my first camera and started practicing.'

An Interview with Photographer & Artist Lee Craig

'I am a photographer and visual artist, enjoying the freedom that comes with doing something that I love for a living. I often jokingly refer to myself as a recovering portrait, event, and commercial photographer.'

An Interview with Abstract Artist Diane Morrison

'The works, titled “The Black Mood Collection”, are based on life events I was going through at the time.  Some of the events are past, some are future, some are concurrent, some bring closure.'

Jonathan Nguyen - The Photographer's Interview

'I am a self-taught photographer. My learning process started with reading professional literature, magazines, online blogs by other photographers and taking some online classes. Learning of photography is going to be a lifelong process. '

An Interview with Artist Jane Elizabeth Martin

'I am particularly inspired by details, texture (especially fur), and lighting – all of which lend themselves to pen and ink. I imagine that my pen nib is tracing along the hairs I’m drawing, trying to express what the fur feels like to touch. Working in black and white gives me a wide range of tones with which to convey detailed shadows and light.'

An Interview with Photographer Cendrine Marrouat

'It means the world to me. I feel like a child every time I hold my camera and release the shutter button. Photography allows me to express myself and share my passion for the world around me when words lack me. '

An Interview With Photographer & Abstract Artist Lara Morrison

'When drawings started coming together one after another it surprised me. I wanted to continue this journey and see if it kept happening. For the photography, when I am out and about, I see a beautiful spontaneous moment as a visual gift presented to me. '

Sandra Röken - The Photographer's Interview

'For me, it is not the perfect shot I'm looking for, not the perfect photo. I am a photo artist so the result of my editing must be perfect for me. But "perfect" is the wrong word. It doesn't have to be perfect, It shows my emotions, my feelings while I am working with my photo, a little part of me.'

Sandra Röken - The Photographer's Interview

Sue Hall - The Artist's Interview

'It wasn't a conscious decision to paint in the Abstract style. To be honest, I've never considered painting any other way. I'm drawn to colour, form, and expression so Abstract art is the perfect vehicle or style for allowing me to experiment with process and application in order to develop my practice.'

Sue Hall - The Artist's Interview

An Interview with Photographer Rachel Morrison

'Photography is universal with a story, memory, relationships, art, love, beauty and visual enjoyment. '

Serena Vachon - The Photographer's Interview

'I love nature and have always loved animals!  Photographing animals in the wild is challenging, but so much fun.  I love to photograph all kinds of wildlife and anything in nature in a different way than people usually see.  I hope that giving a different view to nature will make people appreciate it a little bit more.'

Serena Vachon - The Photographer's Interview

Stuart Litoff - The Photographer's Interview

'I think my most challenging shoot was trying to take photos of the Northern Lights in Iceland. After only getting a couple of hours sleep on my overnight flight to Iceland, I met up with my photography tour group, led by photographer and teacher Tom Bol, and we hit the ground running, shooting at 3 different locations throughout the day.'

Stuart Litoff - The Photographer's Interview

An Interview with Artist Carol Finkbeiner Thomas

'I don’t actually remember a time when I wasn’t immersed in drawing and creating. This natural impulse was present early in my childhood, and although I had no specific artistic mentor in my family, I was very fortunate to have their unconditional encouragement. I was given personal freedom to find and define my inspiration. Now inspiration is provided by connecting with like minded people.'

Laura Hudson Mackay - The Photographer's Interview

'I also practice the art of beholding, taking some time before I even pick up the camera to hold a landscape, space or a subject in my gaze. Beholding has a still, slow and spacious quality to it, where vision becomes softer. It releases expectations of what you think you will see and instead you can receive what is actually in front of you.'

Laura Hudson Mackay - The Photographer's Interview

An Interview with Fine Art Photographer Laurie Freitag

'I consider myself a documentary photographer and I'm shooting what I think is important. I think people will interpret an image the way they see life. It's all subjective and it's not really important to label the work. It's important for me to follow my instincts in choosing the subject and the moment to shoot.'

Mike Basher - The Photographer's Interview

'I enjoy the challenges. I look at every photograph as an obstacle, and I focus as intently as I can on making it as perfect as I can, whether it's photographing an athlete or sticks in water. Every day with the camera is different, so my work is never repetitive.'

Mike Basher - The Photographer's Interview

An Interview with Photographer Katja Gehrung

'If I have an image in my mind there is most of the time much work to do carrying all the props to the place I have chosen. I love to combine unusual things. Therefore I am always looking to find curious clothes or props.'

An Interview with Photographer Katerina Iacovides

'I think a lot about light and composition. I try not to overcomplicate compositions so that it’s more obvious what the image is about. In terms of lighting, it depends on what I am shooting. Some shots require a simple light set up. But then if there are multiple items or an item with different materials then I have to think about the quality and quantity of light which will be needed to best illuminate what I am shooting. I love it because it is creative problem-solving.'

An Interview with Artist Loren Di Benedetto

'I love everything about being an artist. I think my favorite part is the solitude, I find peace painting at my easel. I feel so fortunate to be able to do what I love every day of my life, I cannot imagine it any other way. There is absolutely nothing that I dislike about it.'
