The photograph is of Irina N., a Parisian Model i photographed in my trip there last year. I always looking for a random tweak I can add to my pictures if they are too boring for me. And once its affecting me,  I know it might affect another 20, 30 ,100 or 1000 people.

I printed it 16X20 and made it float, amazing job by Glenn from Reclaimed Frame, which I got to work with several more times later, and for sure in the future! Reasonable prices and he will do what you need and what you want. (2811 W. Pico Blvd, Santa Monica, California)

Thanks for all the people that came and saw the show in person, and all the online support, and special thanks to Lucie Foundation, MOPLA and Smashbox for having me.

Cheers,

Benjo.

Featured in “BEST OF PHOTOGRAPHY 2012” by Photographer’s Forum Magazine

WWW.PFMAGAZINE.COM

During 2012 i had some personal projects and photoshoots that i thought will be nice to try and submit them to photography competitions. I got discouraged many times by photo competitions, and losing them, but i guess that after a while it’s paying off.

I joined the 32nd Annual Photography competition of Photographer’s Forum Magazine and got into the finalists with 2 images. On in the B&W section and the other in Color section. I’m not a winner and not close to be, but it did promised me a place in a 9X12in’ hardcover book sponsored by SIGMA: “BEST OF PHOTOGRAPHY 2012”.

Both photos are of Jessica A. @ Mayhem Model Management and i shoot them in totally different times of the year, randomly.

2013 is dedicated for specific creation, self development and to try and to get more accomplishments in the competitions and recognition aspect a long side by working and keep shooting with amazing people and my great team. Thank you everyone!

cheers,

Benjo.
