Who are you?

I'm a web photographer, I work for high street brands and their online shops. But most of the recent pictures on my website are from my personal work. I'm fond of fashion and beauty photography, and I've been attracted to fashion since I was a child!

 

What are you working on at the moment?

Last year, I started a new personal work. I want to explore the French garment industry, and more precisely the sustainable part of it. I visited a farm in the south of France and I will be meeting breeders, manufactures, designers... and taking pictures along the process. I'm also working on a beauty series with bugs (butterflies, beetles...)

 

Who are your biggest influences in the industry?

David Lachapelle made me want to become a photographer, and as a kid I wanted to become Jean-Paul Gautier. Pop culture has shaped my eye in terms of music, cinema and visual arts.

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

Portfoliobox enabled me to create easy and attractive content for me to share with clients and prospects!

Who are you?

My name is Meg Rennie, and I’m a visual artist and illustrator from Melbourne, Australia. Most of my pieces are mixed media collages. I colour my paper with acrylic paint, creating different textures and patterns with lots of brushes and sponges, then cut my shapes from these papers, layering them to build a picture. I love cinema, and art and design from the 1950s and ‘60s, and I think these are the influences that show in my work. I love to paint girls, children, domestic scenes, food and nature.

 

I have exhibited my work in galleries in Melbourne such as No Vacancy, in.cube8r, and Fort Delta, and at the SVA in New York, and my illustrations have been in publications such as Assemble PapersVoiceworks, and Lateral Magazine. It is my dream in the future to create and illustrate picture books.

 

What are you working on at the moment?

At the moment I’m working on a project that I’m very excited about: making a series of illustrations of people cooking, for my first solo exhibition this June. I have been documenting people from all over Melbourne cooking and sharing their food, to explore how cooking connects us with our family, builds our communities, invites cultural exchange, and helps us to engage with our city. I’ve visited chefs, food writers, community leaders, artists, and passionate home cooks for this project, and had incredibly inspiring conversations about food, community, and creative pursuits – I’ve also been treated to a lot of delicious food!
 

The series is called The Melbourne Kitchen Project, and the exhibition will be held at Signal Gallery, Northbank, Flinders Walk, June 20th – 23rd.

 

Who are your biggest influences in the industry?

There are so many incredibly talented illustrators working now, I see something that blows me away every day! I love the work of Carson Ellis, Christian Robinson, Monika Forsberg, Min Pin and Yeji Yun, to name just a few. My greatest artistic influences are probably still the artists and authors I grew up loving: Tove Jansson, Lucy Cousins, Ludwig Bemelmens, Lauren Child, Mary Blair, and Eric Carle are all at the top of my list.

 

What was the last thing that inspired you?

A few weeks ago, when the wonderful poet Mary Oliver passed, I re-read her poem Wild Geese. It hasn’t left my head since. That poem doesn’t just inspire me to try and make something beautiful, as she did. It inspires me to live, and to really enjoy my life. To me, that’s the best and most important thing that art can do.

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

Portfoliobox has been a wonderful platform for me; I needed something intuitive and that would be easy to update, and it has certainly been that for me. The templates available have allowed me to easily create a portfolio that looks beautiful and is easy for people to navigate. I have also found the service to be very supportive and attentive."

Who are you?

I am a Brazilian documentary photographer based in Lisbon, and the main focus of my work is to tell stories.

At moment I am working on a series about the Portuguese old villages and their citizens

People...all kind of people and cultures...it always inspires me... the fishermans, the farmers, the workers...

Who are you?

My name is Witold Ziomek and I am 25 years old. I live in Krakow, Poland, where I work full-time. For the last two years I have spent every spare moment traveling with the camera around my neck. I'm mainly interested in nature, I do not like cities. I love feeling when shooting. Paying attention to every detail, incident light.

 

What are you working on at the moment? 

I do not work on any specific project. I plan next trips from month to month. The place where I will choose mainly depends on the price of plane tickets :)

 

How would you describe your work?

I am taking photographs in my own way, I am not interested in any frames or drawers. I like lines, symmetry. I meditate over photos for a very long time, because something does not always match. My photos are stylistically chaotic, but it shows well my way of being and traveling.

 

Who are your biggest influences in the industry?

Max Muench from the German Roamers and Benjamin Hardman. Pictures of Reuben Wu are a masterpiece for me. Benjamin Everett smashes my brain.

 

What was the last thing that inspired you?

Everything inspires me. Writing this text, b. Two hours before the plane to Keflavik I could not take my eyes off the lamp in the underground car park at Ikea. Photography teaches me to see beauty.

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

I love Portfoliobox for its simplicity. Just click here, write the text - voila, it's great. I do not have time to design a complicated website, to look for people to code. I wanted to create a nice and functional portfolio in a short time, and Portfoliobox has helped me with this.
