New Orleans through Werner Pawlok’s lens

New Orleans through Werner Pawlok’s lens

In an old city, famous for its distinct French and Spanish Creole architecture, cuisine, culture, and music; the uniqueness of New Orleans’ living history is kept alive in the buildings and spaces. Its colonial past, jazz, voodoo, and Mardi Gras have left exciting, colorful traces strewn throughout the city, all of which drew photographer Werner Pawlok to capture its charm and beauty in his warm, painting-like style. Bar Napoleon “Few places capture the essence of New Orleans like the Napoleon House: A 200 year old landmark that’s as casual and unique as its French Quarter surroundings. It was owned by the Mayor of New Orleans who offered it as a refuge to Napoleon in 1821 during his exile. Although Napoleon never did make it to stay there, the name did and has been attached to the establishment ever since. Bar Napoleon since become one of the most famous bars in America, and has been a known haunt for artists and writers all throughout the 20th century.” House of Craig 1 “You can practically taste the …

Shot from the Heart: On Set with Republic of Fritz Hansen

The world-renowned interior design company, Fritz Hansen, show us how an iconic brand plans and executes a photo shoot using a Phase One XF 100MP Camera System. We get the inside track from three creative minds who know how to make a brand shine. The Visual Department’s Perspective Insights from the mastermind of the Fritz Hansen ‘look’, Mie Sandfeld, Visual Department Representative. “All photo shoots begin with a brief – here we state which products we are going to take pictures of. Next, we need both to consider the purpose of the images and the target group. This is very important to make sure the images display our products in the right way – both practically with angles etc., but also emotionally to catch the viewer’s attention and hopefully get a positive reaction from them.” Planning the Shoot “When planning this photoshoot, it was important for us to consider the overall “theme” (look and feel), as well as which products would be most relevant to take pictures of. For us, the most important aspect of …

Architecture photographer, Joel Tjintjelaar shooting with the 100MP Achromatic Digital Back

Architecture in Black and White with Joel Tjintjelaar

“There’s a quality to the black and white photos from this camera that feels like the beautiful analog photos from the past that I’ve never seen before in digital.” Award winning black and white architectural photographer, Joel Tjintjelaar, took in hand Phase One’s 100MP Achromatic and spoke with us about his love of black and white photography. He explained how he uses an absence of color to add depth to his images. How would you describe yourself as a photographer? “I would describe myself as a photographer who aims to create art. Photography is just a medium to express myself emotionally and create beautiful things. I try to create art by moving away from reality as many steps as possible. I’ve always felt that moving away from reality is a way of creating aesthetics. One way is by working in black and white, since our real world is not a black and white world. I have other ways of moving away from reality, like working with long exposures and exaggerating the differences in luminance to …

Photographer, Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen shooting Scandinavian design with IQ3 100MP Digital Back

When Scandinavian design meets photography

Scandinavian Design is characterized by a seeming simplicity; though the complexities behind this careful aesthetic should not be underestimated. Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen is one of the founders of Norm Architects. He’s also a significant name in photography. Jonas uses Phase One equipment and we spoke with him about the Scandinavian design concept to find the bridge between his creation of minimalist physical spaces as an architect, and capturing these same spaces as a photographer. The architect and the photographer “We founded Norm Architects in 2008. Today we work globally with residential architecture, commercial interiors, industrial design, graphics, art direction and – of course – photography. My interest in all these disciplines is basically an effectuation with aesthetics in general. In our designs, we always strive to balance — between richness and restraint, between order and complexity. In most Scandinavian designs, there are always details that take the product beyond the strictly simple and give it something extra. We try to reach a point where there is nothing to add and nothing to take away that can make the …
