Art Wolfe on the Photographic Treasure Hunt


In this video renowned photographer Art Wolfe shares a little about how he got into photography and some of where he gets inspiration in this video.

Intro by Art Wolfe from Art Wolfe on Vimeo.

I particularly like how Art takes inspiration in different scenes from painters and enjoyed hearing him speak about the challenge that we all face as photographers to find and convey meaning in a scene.

The idea of photography as a treasure hunt is a good one too. Great photos don’t just happen every day – it takes time and great effort to find these ‘treasures’ that get an emotional reaction in those who view our photos.

    I think we can gain a lot of inspiration from artists. I wonder how long great photos will last compared to the old masters.

    Sometimes I like to play around and make a photo more like a painting (fun)
