There's no prize for seconds
In 2015 there is a clearly identifiable pattern with photographers, in particular with cashed-up Australian photographers; the carbon-copying of another photographer's subject and style.
These Photocopiers live in a haze of disillusioned self-belief. They mistakenly believe if:
- they buy an expensive camera
- fit an expensive lens
- study the images of a photographer who won praise 2, 5, 10 or 20 years ago
- find the same face or identical location of said photographer
- use the same post-production techniques
- mimick the same style
If you want to be challenged photographically and learn how to unleash creative ideas check out one of Dale Neill's UWA Extension workshops.
