News » The Featured Photographer Project
August 23, 2008
Our Featured Photographer Project is up and running. This is something we here at Qufoto have been looking forward to for a little while now. Let me tell you what's cool about it, what we hope to achieve with it, and how you can be a part of it.
Once a month, we hope to present a high quality interview with a new photographer who uses our service. These interviews will read well and look good, and hopefully convey a meaningful look into the mind and thoughts of someone who is great at what they do.
The interviews will be unscripted and conducted by other photographers, so that a real understanding of the field can drive a unique exchange of thought.
With each interview, a selection of the photographer's work will be presented large and high-quality, so that you can see their work as you read what they think, and experience the final result of what their frame of mind leads them to capture.
One thing we hope to achieve with the Featured Photographer Project is a community of interest and respect among our photographers and those interested in their work. A flourishing network of connections among talented professionals would be an excellent thing to have created.
We'd also like to help develop recognition for the photographers whose work we personally admire, and who we think deserve to be more widely known. If our spotlight can help them get one more commission, or sell one more print, then we'll have done well.
At this time the Featured Photographer Project is only open to photographers who use a Qufoto website. If you do, and you're interested in being interviewed, you can let us know by sending us a simple note. You should have a selection of work that you feel comfortable sharing in an interview.
If you're not a Qufoto user, you're out of luck! But we hope you still enjoy the interviews that we do create.
There's no telling, yet, where this project will go. But we hope it will be successful. Our first interview is with Lacey Johnson. You can read it here.
