HUVUDDOMARE - JÖRGEN BRANDT, DANMARK

Fotografi er for mig en livsstil, et arbejde og en hobby – og grænserne flydende eller ikke eksisterende. I det kommercielle arbejder jeg med at fange stemning og følelse, at fange ”mennesket” som et levende individ – som et glimt af deres ”personlighed”. Billederne er tit portrætter af enkelte eller familier, fine art nude (boudoir), gravide, nyfødte, børn etc. Gennem tiden har jeg udstillet på forskellige gallerier samt museer og været med på en hel del udstillinger andre steder.

Egen fotokunst I mine egne natur og abstrakte eller Fine Art Nude billeder er det egentligt noget af det samme. Lyset og formen er altid med og skal understøtte billedet Som fotograf arbejder jeg i mine egne billeder mere og mere med det abstrakte, måske nærmere abstraktionen, hvor tingene bliver til mere og ofte andet end de er.

For mig handler fotografiet ikke om hvad jeg ser eller om hvad virkeligheden er. Det gjorde i begyndelsen og faktisk i mange år. Det var spændende, det udviklede sig – men det var, set i bakspejlet, også en spændetrøje. Virkeligheden, så spændende og udfordrende den kan være, er egentlig uinteressant i fantasiens verden. Det uanset om fantasien udspringer af virkeligheden eller ikke. Mine egne fotografier handler fantasi, der er opstået i den måde jeg vælger at se og bruge verden i mine billeder.

Desuden underviser jeg i og holder foredrag om fotografi i Danmark, på Færøerne, Japan, Letland, Frankrig, UK, Sverige med flere.

Har været/er mentor for fotografer fra bl.a. Danmark, Norge, Sverige, UK, Holland, Belgien, Slovakiet, Frankrig m. fl.

”Chairman of the Jury” i FEP Photographer of the Year Awards 2011-18, ”Chairman of the Jury” i World Photographic Cub 2016-18. Var co-funder af World Photographic Cup og WPC Governor 2013-17.

PIERRE DELEAUNY, FRANKRIKE - DIGITALDOMARE

LUKE EDMONSON, USA - DIGITALDOMARE

Luke Edmonson is a master photographer, global speaker, educator, and print competition judge, and that's the last time I'm going to refer to myself in the 3rd person.

 

"Hands down participating in both online and print competitions has provided the most significant and beneficial learning experience for me to grow as a photographer. From my initial forays as an entrant and later moving into judging in the Europe, Australia, Asia, and the USA, I'm consistently amazed by the depth of talent and innovation from our international photographic community."

 

Within, the WPPI Honors of Excellence program, I've earned the distinction of Grand Master of Photography while also serving in the roles of Competition Director, Print Chair, and as a Judge. It was also a privilege to be one of the co-founders and first graduates of WPPI-C, the industry's first of its kind certification for wedding & portrait photographers.

 

My Fellowship from the SWPP (UK) means more to me than most of the other accolades due to the high degree of difficulty in achieving it. Other past accolades include winning the International Photographer of the Year in the AIPP (Australia) APPA competition, as well as earning Diamond Photographer of the Year from PPA (USA.) I hold the Master of Photography and Photographic Craftsman degrees there as well.

 

Awards are lovely but shouldn't define us. My most significant joy is serving others, whether that was as President of the Dallas PPA local guild, being a former board member for Texas PPA, serving on PPA's Speaker Selection committee, or speaking at photography conventions.

 

You may also enjoy seeing some of the behind the scenes edutainment videos we've made for Godox easily found on Youtube. One of my goals is to advance the profession of photography as an art form. To that end, I'm a member of Cameracraftsman of America, one of the oldest, most prestigious groups in the world.

 

But you know what's best?

 

I'm a husband, father, brother, and son with two awesome kids and a wife that I adore!

Exempelvis har han gjort åtskilliga reportage, reklamfotograferingar och privata porträtt.  Genom åren har han plåtat allt från kungligheter och världsartister till fotomodeller och människor i vardagen.

 

Publicerad i hundratals tidningar och magasin, både svenska och utländska och med bokomslag, skivomslag, reklamkampanjer, klädkollektioner i bagaget sitter Tobias Fischer på både lång erfarenhet och stor kunskap inom fotografering.

 

Som yrkesman betraktar sig Tobias inte bara som en dokumentärskildrare, utan även som en kreatör som med ljusets hjälp vill skildra sin personliga tolkning av motivet ifråga. Just ljussättningen är ett av hans signum som fotograf, vare sig det handlar om att på konstgjord väg skapa de optimala förutsättningarna för en bild, eller om det handlar om att ta tillvara befintligt ljus på absolut bästa sätt. Oavsett om det handlar om teknik, mat eller människor så vittnar Tobias bilder om kärlek till detaljerna och en anslående känsla för färg, former och linjer.

 

Utöver sitt arbete som fotograf arbetar Tobias en hel del pedagogiskt. Han är sedan många år en uppskattad föreläsare och gästlärare – bland annat på Nordens Fotoskola, Södertörns Högskola och på Bergs.

MIKAELA HOLMBERG, FINLAND - DIGITALDOMARE

I love photography.  What we do as photographers is priceless and the value of our work lives on for generations to come. Photography is my way of expressing my inner world, it is where I identify as an artist. I have worked as a photographer for 16 years of which I have had a business for 12. I am a portrait photographer and what I love the most is Fine Art. My personal Fine Art -projects are the ones that have brought me the most success and fulfillment in my career.  I have had good success in various international awards and I received my QEP back in 2018 in Georgia. 

The importance of staying true to your own vision when you create is what I strongly voice out to anyone in this field.  My future in this field will be more about giving back by coaching, mentoring and doing workshops, it is what my heart is telling me to do. I have a long history of judging images for competition. I judged the Finnish National Competition (Now a days FPA) for several years (2012-2018) and I also had the honor to be the Head Judge during that time. I have been one of the judges for Svenska Mästerskapet once before in 2017 and the most recent judging was for team Norway and their national competition earlier this year. I have high respect for anyone who enters images to competition, I appreciate every image I get to judge. I am grateful for being part of your competition and I am really excited to see all the beautiful art you have created. Lycka till!

MARTINA WÄRENFELDT, SVERIGE - PRINTDOMARE

Skapandet är min passion. Kreativiteten i fotograferandet ger mig sån glädje.

 

Jag är yrkesfotograf sedan 23 år tillbaka men detta är inte ett jobb för mig, det är en livsstil. Första platsen i mitt hjärta håller såklart min familj, min man och mina två barn, men därefter kommer kärleken till bilden och skapandet.

 

Mitt fokus har alltid varit människor och jag har i alla år haft uppdrag både för företagssidan och för privatpersoner. Efter många år med de mer traditionella porträtten och bröllop valde jag att satsa mer på Fine Art porträtt, som tilltalar den skapande själen i mig. Där har jag nu funnit min stora drivkraft och passionen har fått nytt bränsle.

 

Min entusiasm för bilder delar jag gärna med mig av och tankar på att föreläsa för andra fotografer fick mig att börja tävla i foto för 5 år sedan för att se så att jag ”höll måttet” och tävlande har gett mig otroligt mycket och varit så oerhört utvecklande för mig som kreatör, men även format vänskapsband med fotografer från hela världen.

 

Totalt har det blivit närmare 90 stycken nationella och internationella priser, i både digitala och i print-tävlingar. Jag är nu ute och föreläser och anordnar workshops som en del av mitt jobb och har hittills haft turer i Sverige och våra grannländer Norge och Finland.

 

Jag är stolt och glad över alla utmärkelser och det senaste året har varit rent omtumlande med förra årets finalplats i World Photographic cup, och Svensk Mästare i Fotografi hösten 2019. Början på 2020 startade fantastiskt med 3 topp 3 placeringar i London på SWPP, och där vann jag Porträttkategorin och blev utnämnd till 2020´s Print competition´s Overall Portrait photographer of the Year. Detta följdes av 3 Guld-awards, en första plats, och en andra plats och en tredje plats i Las Vegas på WPPI samtidigt som jag där erhöll min Master of WPPI titel. Och i FEP nu i våras, vann jag bronskameran i Mode och tog hem Guldkameran och första plats i Porträtt.

Alldeles nyligen blev det ytterligare en fin vinst i WPE´s second digital competition där jag med 11 silver awards kom på en hedrande Grand Awards 3e plats.

 

Med mina år som tävlande och all den tid jag har spenderat i livejurering, lyssnat och lärt så har jag nu fått flera förfrågningar som domare och senaste fina uppdrag var för Norska landskonkurrensen. Så väldigt roligt, givande och ärofyllt. 

Jag vet hur det är att våga lämna ut sig till bedömning av bilder man har lagt ner sin själ i och jag har all respekt för er som har modet och viljan att utvecklas. Att vinna ett pris är såklart roligt men att dela upplevelsen med andra och att växa i sitt fotograferande är den stora vinsten!

Jag är tacksam för förtroende att vara printdomare på SM i Fotografi och hoppas kunna bidra till en professionell och givande tävling!
