Inspiring Photographer – Flemming Bo Jensen

20 10 2009

“Imitation is sincerest form of flattery.” A common quote that might not be the best description of my relationship to another photographer’s work, could fit in this case. But I’d be the 7 year old stumbling to do my best interpretation.

I first came across the photography of Flemming Bo Jensen (Denmark) about 3 or 4 years ago. He used the same photo hosting site as me. I was inspired both by his work and his ability to present it in a simple and clean manner. Over time we shared short email communication; usually me asking for some help in understanding how to display my own work. He was always willing to give his thoughts and I have to credit his support for the current web layout of my own photos.

Flemming Bo Jensen is a world traveler that captures landscape and architecture in a spectacular way. His ability to combine lighting, mood, and composition is second to none. He creates photographs worthy of the highest of accolades.  It is this ability to capture light that I try to replicate. Never to the same level of precision.

It is Flemming Bo Jensen’s approach to photography and approachability as one with a common interest that makes it easy to applaud his work. While this post doesn’t begin to do his work justice, I hope that it’s an introduction to some new eyes. All of Flemming Bo Jensen’s work can be seen by visiting his website.


A Blog Begins

Ansel Adams said, “Twelve significant photographs in any one year is a good crop.” I will use that quote and other words from those more famous than myself as the basis for my blogging about photography. You are probably wondering who I am, so I should start there.

Me llamo Brad.  I am a photographer living in Bowie, MD. I have been interested in photography for about 6 years. My work focuses on trying to find unique perspectives on landscape, nature, cityscape, and architecture. Sometimes this comes with vivid color and others with the “simplicity” of black and white.

My blog will focus on a few areas of interest. First, posts will talk about my work. These posts may focus on a single image or a recent project; depends on the thought of the day. Other posts will focus on my thoughts about the work of other photographers. And finally, I will post some general thoughts about photography and my approach.

I would like to invite you to view my work. Please click on the image below to visit my website. I would be happy to hear from you via this blog or the website itself.
