Editing with Miska Draskoczy

Editing with Miska Draskoczy | a photographer's life | Scoop.it

We are talking to a range of photographers, photo editors, professors of photography, book designers and others about the physical process of editing images. Selecting, sequencing and laying out photographs - be it for a magazine, book, online site or gallery presentation - seems something of a mysterious process for many photographers and a process that seems perhaps hard to give words to.

"Writing a book about contemporary photography is a bit of a thankless task since the moment it’s published, there already is something else that is not included in the book. But completeness cannot be the goal of such books. Inevitably, something will be missing, for whatever reason. There will probably also be categories, resulting in debates whether artist XYZ should not have in fact been placed elsewhere, or whether some category might be missing."

"I never shoot for my portfolio, my personal work is my portfolio. Since the beginning of my career as a photographer I only photographed things that I was passionate about or involved in. I never specifically photographed subjects that might sell or get me a job. If I am not interested in them I don’t shoot them. I became a photographer by documenting my lifestyle and activities I participate in."

The Power Of Branding In Photography & How To Brand Yourself | Joel Grimes

The Power Of Branding In Photography & How To Brand Yourself | Joel Grimes | a photographer's life | Scoop.it

Positioning yourself in the marketplace so that you are associated with something particular is what branding is, according to Joel Grimes, as he discusses in this latest edition of his Behind The Lens series. Just like we say Kleenex when we mean any facial tissue, or Coke for any cola. In terms of photography, he essentially links branding in field with having a certain look.The biggest compliment for Joel is when someone can see an image and associate it with him even before knowing for certain whose work it was. With as many photographers as there are, this can seem like an insurmountable task, but Joel insists it’s not exactly rocket science. Rather, it’s the combination of focus, time, and repetition. That’s not to say repeating the same thing over and over again will garner you success, but that in order to be associated with something, a look, it usually takes having done it numerous times, and over a lengthy period of time – about 2 – 3 years in his estimation. His humility allows him to say often that he isn’t a creative genius, and that he’s not a brilliant man, but that his love for the creative process and strong work ethic are keys to his success. The passion is what gets him going, and the work ethic allows for it to be executed. Once you are associated with a look, and have that brand association, Grimes stresses that you must understand that there is a shelf life to all branded looks, and you may be lucky enough to get in at the right time with your look, or perhaps the worst time when that look is ‘out’. Either way, you have to make sure the brand is yours, and your vision, so the process of evolution is really personal rebranding, and only if it’s yours will you have the staying power to see it through.......

Luise Heiderhoff: "It’s interesting to see the process of drawing up a shortlist, and making the final pick and then to compare the procedure of the different photographers.

But what I especially like is to look at the contact sheet and think about which photo I would have chosen or to see what else has happened during the shoot or the event."

"I had to move back home after having a rough summer where assisting work and shooting work was extremely slow and I had no savings because my overhead was so high with student loans, rent, insurance, etc. Moving back home was my last resort and I felt like a failure for a bit. After beginning the project and realizing how many others were out there like me, it was clear that I needed to bring this story to light and share the experience of the “Boomerang Kids,” including my own story."
