ATHENS Workshop 2013 &
Another member of our distinguished jury for the Athens Hitech Contest today. We're getting closer to the deadline and I'm very excited about it. I've already gathered part of the submissions for the contest and waiting for more, but you'll have to be patient as I’ll keep them secret till the Big Day. Thanks again to our main sponsor Formatt Hitech (I hope you checked out their Cyber Monday offer for the JT ProStop IRND filter kit – our 1st prize) and to the VP of marketing at Hitech for taking part in the organization of the FIRST contest of architectural photography ever organized at a workshop in Greece (yes, I think I can claim my place in the Guinness Book for quite a few photography “firsts” these past years : ) a contest that has as goal to make everyone fall in love with B&W architectural photography as I did many years ago. Our sponsor Stark-Magazine is very kind and will publish the winning images in the magazine and I really can't wait to see which images these will be.
So, today I give you Klaus-Peter Kubik, not only a great and very prolific German architectural photographer but one of the best persons I know, from all points of view. Peter is too modest in his bio here, but you have to know he has won countless distinctions in just as many photography contests over a period of many years. He's doing this job from about the time I was getting ready to be born and he is still full of enthusiasm and inspiration. Which can only make me say: “Hats off to you, Peter! You're great!! ”
And now, let's give the word to KPK, as he calls himself, and read a few more things in his bio.
For even more go visit his site and admire a lot of good architectural photography http://kpk-photography.de/
“Klaus-Peter Kubik (KPK) is a award-winning amateur photographer located in Germany with preferences for architecture photography and to a lesser extent landscape and macro photography.
Klaus-Peter started photographing in Berlin in the early 70s with street and documentary photography before switching to architecture with digital cameras in 2003. KPK particularly likes using graphical elements to create an attractive composition by including the shapes, areas, structures, and light/shadow effects as they often were intended to be seen by the responsible architect.
KPK's works are awarded in several national and international competitions. His images are regularly printed in different photo magazines, books, and calendars.
KPK is member of the German Photographic Society (DVF). The DVF is member of the FIAP - Fédération Internationale de l'Art Photographique”
