Chris Packham speaks about photography and nature

Closed
In late 70s, when the rest of the teenagers were out meeting their girlfriends in clubs and pubs, Chris Packham, a wildlife presenter, was bent over a microscope searching at badger faeces. Every Thursday evening, he carried out this ritual for 5 years in an effort to find put some unknown views about the ecology of the species. This is a statement of his love for the natural world that appears to have showd itself even before he could speak up.
Therefore, comes a surprise that his newest book ‘100 Things That Caught My Eye,’ carries very few wildlife snaps. Recently, he told that he wanted to appeal all the snappers. As a subject, wildlife is quite niche. He actually wanted to do a book on photography rather than a book on wildlife.
In the collection, the snaps were clicked in over thirty nations and it spans more than twenty five years of traveling. The subjects of Chris Packham are many and varied depending on what captured his eyes. Here, the readers are extended a glance into his imagination at the moment he clicks each snap.
He told that this is about the way people think when taking images. The premise of the book is that photography is an intellectual process. It is a hundred photos, yes, but really it is 100 self critiques of his work.

This is co-organized by an arts and culture consultancy named Candlestar, whose co-director Michael Benson told that Luma would support the collectors’ and public program.

Michael added that their target for Photo London is that it would be a yearly celebration of photography. Their ambition is that this would grow into a citywide celebration. The organizers are in discussions with major galleries, museums and collectors regarding the collateral program, details of which would be declared later this year.

Benson, suggesting that London is becoming the top international place for collectors of photography, said that London’s major galleries and museums have become increasingly serious regarding photography, the number of London based collectors has risen dramatically and the auction houses report strong sales.

Michael Hoppen, the London photography dealer, welcomed the move. He told that he thought that this is a real great idea as long as they start by keeping it high quality and small; another big fair is not what the market requirements. They expect to take part, but this would depend on the size of the fair and very importantly, what date they select.

Per-Andre Hoffman, a well known Travel photographer, told at a press conference previous Saturday that high quality photographs are quite easy to market with clients and this is the reason why photographers require large printers of good quality.

Hoffman, along with fellow brand ambassadors of Canon, unveiled the company’s imagePROGRAF (iPF) printer in Cebu that he said offers stunning resolution, perfect whites, delicate grays, wide color gamut, superb dynamic range and deep blacks which could be very useful to photographers.

According to reports, Hoffman stated that that iPF printer is mainly designed for professionals who work in production and graphic arts. It comes in different sizes even though that depends on the model.

The iPF5100 is seventeen inches whereas the iPFF9410S measures sixty inches and that is also the biggest. The printers have an upper limit printable length of 18 meter paper. Jay Jalloma, a landscape photographer, told that by using iPF printer, he could control the whole procedure of producing photographs. He told that with big print printers, he could rightly check details of the landscape snaps.

Hoffman told that snappers who want to take part in photo exhibits could print their snap in Canon’s iPF printer. Edwin Martinez, a Canon brand ambassador and a landscape photographer, told that printing is the toughest part in photography. A picture can be called a photograph only if it is printed.
