RockstarVanity

Portfolio of the day

September 19, 2016

 

Who are you?

I'm Tanya. I live in Edinburgh, Scotland, and have been creating photographic art under the name RockstarVanity for over a decade although I've been taking pictures for about as long as I can remember.

 

What are you inspired by?

Dreams, nightmares, strange experiences, films, music, beautiful places, other people's faces, overheard conversations, details in everyday objects...pretty much anything. Inspiration for art comes from all over the place, not just things I can point my camera at. I like to show a different view of familiar things and I also love creating weird and wonderful make-up and lighting effects. I almost always have the finished photograph in my head first, then work towards making it a reality.

 

What was the last movie you watched?

I recently rewatched Antichrist and it was as amazing and disturbing as the first time I saw it. I love Lars von Trier's films and Antichrist is definitely my favourite. It's horrific in the extreme (seriously, not for those with a delicate disposition!) and has the most gloriously weird and dark aesthetic. I've always had a passion for horror, especially films that don't shy away from showing the most gruesome details, and the genre has inspired a lot of my photographic work over the years.

 

What was the last book you read?

I'm in the middle of reading The Scattered and the Dead by Tim McBain and L.T. Vargus. It's part of a series of stunningly character driven novels set in a post-apocalyptic landscape, so it ticks my boxes for both horror and human drama. 

 

Do you have any role model?

I've always adored Joel-Peter Witkin's art because he works with such challenging subject matter and makes really strong statements with his images. His photographs are created with incredible attention to detail and I love how unashamedly strange they are. They're not for everyone, but that's part of the appeal.

 

What is your next creative project?

I don't really have any firm plans at the moment but I've realised that pretty much everything I've talked about here involves horror, so it might be something a bit dark cause that seems to be the direction my mind is nudging me in right now.

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

I love the flexibility. I'd tried a few different portfolio sites before but none of them quite hit the spot, mostly because the gallery options weren't exactly what I wanted or because they didn't have the option to have more than a few lines of text anywhere. Portfoliobox allows me to create a website that not only shows off my work at its best but also gives me space to share plenty of information.

Visarut Sankham

Portfolio of the day

September 14, 2016

 

Who are you?

I'm Visarut Sankham, I would call myself a storyteller focusing on social injustice and culture. 

 

What are you inspired by?

I'm interested in documentary photography for the beauty of it. There is beauty coming from most people who are struggling (not in a bad way). I mean that it's when people try to live their life that the beauty arises, whether about their story or their way of living. Then, I am just addicted to see and be with people.

 

What was the last movie you watched?

I've just watched a movie by Gavin Hood called Eye in the Sky.

 

What was the last book you read?

I've just read a book about ethnic theory as I now study Ethnic study and Development at Thailand's Chiangmai University.  

 

Do you have any role model?

I have hundred of photographers guiding my thought on photography such as Damir Sagoji, Jame Netchway, Robert Capa, Sebastião Salgado and many others. While, my thought based on many legend in sociology like Marx, Webb, Durkheim.

 

What is your next creative project?

As I am a student focusing on ethnic group, I've found out that there were many conflict in Thailand caused by misunderstanding on the way ethnic groups live. Therefore, my point now is to promote the beauty of ethnic group and make sure the majority learn more about them. Finally, I believe when we do understand each other, there is no point to kill each other.

Kristine Kolstad

Portfolio of the day

September 13, 2016

 

Who are you?

I am Kristine. I'm from Norway and just finished Norwegian School of Photography in Trondheim were I focused on fashion editorials. I have always been a creative person, but it's just recently that I found my way to photography. I am an introverted soul, but working on it.

 

What are you inspired by?

I love light. And movement. It's not necessary what you see in my pictures, but it does something to me.

 

What was the last movie you watched?

I bet almost everybody is lying about this. And I was thinking about doing the same. I could have told you my second to last movie for instance. Almost famous. I love that movie. It's about passion for music, and people, and life. What's not to love.

But my last movie.. Bad Neighbours 2.. yeah let's not talk about it.

Oh, Birdman is playing in the background as I am writing this, does that count?

 

What was the last book you read?

It is a Norwegian book called Kjære (Dear) by Linnéa Myhre. It's her collection of letters to loved ones, and not so loved ones, written as a girl who has struggled half her life with an eating disorder. Talk about raw and honest writing.

 

Do you have any role model?

I find a role model in every strong person. Not necessary rich and successful, but a person who believes in oneself and is brave and strong and loving. Like my best friend.

 

What is your next creative project?

I'm going to Iceland in a few weeks and I have some ideas for a fashion shoot. I really should start planning..

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

Portfoliobox lets me have a place were all the focus is on my pictures.

Cafuné

Portfolio of the day

September 12, 2016

 

Who are you?

Behind Cafuné there is Cristian and Saida, we are two photographers based in Barcelona. Cafuné's main purpose is to give a new perspective to Social and Lifestyle Photography, specially weddings and events. Even though our Cafuné project is mainly focused on these fields, Saida enjoys shooting film for her personal projects (she owns more than 25 film cameras!) and Cristian is deeply invested into Documentary Photography.

 

What are you inspired by?

We believe that inspiration is everywhere, you just need to find it.

 

What was the last movie you watched?

An Italian movie called La migliore offerta (The Best Offer) by Giuseppe Tornatore.

 

What was the last book you read?

Saida is reading right now The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami and Cristian is reading Sebastião Salgado's Photography book Genesis.

 

Do you have any role model?

Not really. We don't follow any trends, we just try to be true to our style, always looking for spontaneity in our pictures.

 

What is your next creative project?

Right now we are both working on different personal projects not related to Cafuné but we are soon going to Portugal and we will definitely find inspiration there!

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

Saida was already a Portfoliobox user, and she was 100% sure that this project was going to be built there as well. But the main reason that made us finally decide for Portfoliobox is that everything is very intuitive and user-friendly. Besides, customer service is great and they are always willing to help you.

Kyle Wolfe

Portfolio of the day

September 09, 2016

 

Who are you?

I'm Kyle Wolfe, a 17 year old photographer specializing in landscape, seascape, and astrophotography. I've been shooting for about 3 years and studying photography exclusively through online resources. I'm currently living in the San Francisco Bay Area where I try to shoot as often as possible and explore new locations. While I love shooting locally, travel photography is my true passion.

 

What are you inspired by?

I'm inspired on a daily basis by other photographers on social media. Their amazing pictures fuel my passion and drive me to get out to create my own stunning images. Other than that I'm also immensely inspired by the support I receive by my fans over social media. It really keeps me going and affirms that what I'm doing is meaningful.

 

What was the last movie you watched?

Finding Dory - hit me right in the childhood

 

What was the last book you read?

Psychology 1A textbook - school has kept me from any pleasure reading.

 

Do you have any role model?

If I had to pick one person it would be Tony Northrup. His story is incredibly inspiring to me. He had to reinvent both his career, and himself to meet the shifting needs of the online photography economy. The way in which he seamlessly shifted his approaches to both photography as a business model, and education through his books is an amount of adaptability I aspire to one day posess.

 

What is your next creative project?

My next project is to capture Perú through a series of street, editorial, landscape and astrophotography images. I'm very excited to begin this journey in May.

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

I appreciate the simplicity and adaptability of the platform. From start to finish, website creation is a streamlined process that even the most inexperienced of web designers can accomplish with ease. Yet powerful features are maintained and not sacrificed for this simplicity. The gorgeous templates perfectly scale to all screen sizes, and work beautifully on mobile devices.
