In Paris With Ibarionex

In Paris With Ibarionex

As this year’s Photokina winds down with all its gear-related excitement, we can refocus on seeing. Two weeks ago, I was leading the Visual Poet Experience Workshop in Paris and I cannot emphasize how amazing this event was. Not only did we have a super talented group of photographers from all around the world but we also had a special guest. Ibarionex Perello was in Paris at the same time and he was kind enough to pay us a visit and chat about photography. But that’s not all.

Ibarionex and I decided to shoot together for a few hours and it proved to be a remarkable experience. Shooting street photography with someone who cares so deeply about the craft of seeing was one of the highlights of my Paris adventure. During our time together, we discussed Ibarionex’s new book, “Making Photographs: Developing A Personal Visual Workflow.” I am currently reading the book and I will write my thoughts as soon as I finish. In short, it is a no-brainer to read this book for anyone who cares about the craft of seeing and improving their photography. Highly recommended!


Today, I would like to leave you with some imagery from Paris shot with the X100F and the GFX50S and our brand-new video!


The next Visual Poet Experience Workshop takes place in San Francisco, November 9-11. I think there are two spots left so make sure to reserve them before they are gone.
