Wedding, Portrait and Social Photography with Guille Ibanez
Tuesday, 22nd March 7pm - 8:30pm
There is a lot more to the social image than the decisive moment of pressing the shutter. In this session, Guille Ibanez talks through the process of making a portfolio, collecting clients and customers, shooting in different environments and editing the final selection of imagery. With a whirlwind of helpful hints and tips on how to achieve a success collaboration between you and your subject, whoever that might be, this session promises to encourage you to get creative with wedding and social photography.
Born in Madrid (1977) but drawn to Manchester, where he now lives, Guille Ibanez (1977) is a photographer whose work focuses on culture, tradition and human interaction. Originally trained as a cinematographer, he still combines professional film and video work with his passion for photography. The tension between the moving and the still image goes to the heart of Guille's work, and his pictures are often referred to as being like frames from a film.
His discovery of photography began relatively recently with street photography. However, he quickly realised that photography was about more than just capturing isolated moments and that the real power of the camera was as a means of exploring human behaviours and stories and as a tool to connect and interact with the world and the people around him.
Guille develops long term projects mostly in his home country of Spain, but he also works within the UK and Asia. Religion and human faith play a major part in his work which has been part of many festivals around Europe and America and he has been a finalist at prestigious festivals such as MIFA (Moscow International Foto) and BSPF (Brussels Street Photography Festival).
