Dear friends. I am happy to announce that I have just returned from Yantai in China and the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards. In the category Best Cookbook Photography I received a worldwide first price. I am very happy and honored. In photography and music, among many other subjects, it is very difficult, if possible, to find winners. Because of that I am especially honored and thankful for the best award that I have ever received. .
The images are from the book “Smörstekt, fortsättningen. Med LCHF-kost för hjärtat”.
Writer Gun-Marie Nachtnebel and graphic design Anna Gunneström.
More winners and more amazing photos. Great photography is being made every day all over the world. I told you, being a photographer is the best thing to be. I think. It is great to get inspiration from wunderful images like these.
I saw this on the BBC News App and thought you should see it:
Ten steps to improve your photography
Lecturer Grant Scott offers advice on how to use your interests to produce better pictures.
” Every decision you make in your life from what you wear, what you eat, how you vote, how you decorate your home, where you visit, what you listen to, what you watch and what you believe are influenced by professional photography and professional photographers. They don’t just shoot weddings.”
These 3 images changed my life years later with 9/11, when WTC was a target for a terror attack. These 2 images above were taken from the observation deck at World Trade Center. The one closest through the binoculars there. All with a small 35 mm Minox GT.
This is another interesting article I found on BBC.com about photography. This time food photography. All according to the pinkladyfoodphotographyoftheyear award. Lots of smoke. The winning photos are not just food, but also enviroment, cocking etc. Food photography is more than pans, pots and plates. Great choice I think.
Todays assignment on WordPress blogging101. Edit your title and your tagline. I have made some adjustments, but I still have a lot more thinking to do. My tags will be changing and I wouldn’t be surprised if my title will to.
So, how was it my company got named Znapshot? I was studying advertising at Beckmans School. The most inspirational and best school I have ever attended! It was more like an art school. I found a studio and decided to start my own company. Before studying at Beckmans I had been a photographers assistant. A strong trend at the time was to spell with a z instead of an s. I liked that! I just didn’t like to name my company Studio xxx, or Photographer xxx. Too many other photographers did. Most of it is history today. That was over 30 years ago.
Todays images are from my exhibition in Karlstad last summer. Old hand written recipies from the family archive.
My name is Pelle ( Per Erik ) Berglund and I am a professional photographer since many years. The best job I still can think of. I am one of those lucky guys that live of my greatest intrest in life. Lucky me! I would like to share my images, my experience and my thoughts with you. Perhaps you are a working photograper, just like me, or you would like to be one. Perhaps you are a person who are working with photographers or you like photography. An Art Director perhaps? This will not be a blogg about technical tips. Not many anyway. This will be about my work and everything that goes with it. My thoughts and inspirations. Today I am very much a food photographer working with the Swedish Culinary Teams. Seniors and Juniors. Also the Swedish Pastry Team. I have photographed 11 cook books until today, and it is OK to get hungry now and then.
