GoSeeAWARDS - REPORTAGE • GoSeeAWARDS16 REPORTAGE – the winners in the category 'Reportage' at the GoSeeAWARDS 2016 including a Mini Quest with our Gold winner Anke Luckmann

06.10.2016 • That it can sometimes be worthwhile to go out with the camera in spite of severe weather warnings is proven by the landscape spread by Anke Luckmann, which was created in the picturesque mist on Mount Teide on the island of Tenerife. For the motifs, she was just awarded GOLD at the GoSeeAwards 2016 in the category Reportage. The motifs were created on one of her many trips to the Canaries. We have a Mini Quest with the photographer known for her modern transportation topics for you on GoSee:

Do you often photograph personal work? I photograph often... and often without commission... but I am not, however, one of those photographers who follow certain topics for years – I photograph spontaneously and that on every trip... Photographing to me is part of every job as well as every vacation. And travel destinations are also often chosen accordingly. So, YES. I love personal work! There is nothing more relaxing for me than to photograph a landscape anywhere in the world, for example, and start the day... Even if I do not like getting up early... a great sunrise simply pays back for...

Events • ILLUSTRATION - the winners in the category 'Illustration' at GoSeeAWARDS 2016 : Gold for PETER BARTEL'S 'Real World', Silver for LARA PAULUSSEN, Third Place for HUBERT WARTER and JONI MAJER

06.10.2016 • Environment, vehicles, storyboard, character, sketchbook... not sugar-coated, more like real life. The portfolio of Peter BARTELS is very grown-up and catchy! That was what the jurors in the category ILLUSTRATION also found, who had to compare numerous styles and techniques in order to choose the best entries. Peter BARTELS tells us how he became what he is today in his charming biography...

“Born and raised in the deep east of Germany in 1984, I always had a inner motivation to draw and paint, but I knew, in this quite forgotten area, it will be almost impossible to get a job that has something to do with art. After high school, I went to Hamburg where I made my first experiences with graphic design. After seven semesters, I got my Bachelor of Arts in Communication Design. With that, I decided to do something thinking more 3D, so I moved to Hanover and studied Product Design for five semesters. I finally realized that analytic thinking paired with playful imagination is what gives me the most motivation for creating artwork. What's closer than being a concept artist? So I...

Events • NUDE – the winners in the category 'NUDE' at the GoSeeAWARDS 2016 : Gold for OLA RINDAL & MORTEN BJARNHOF, Silver for CARL KLEINER and Bronze for MONICA MENEZ' elastic-fantastic lingerie special

05.10.2016 • With very soft tones and reserved imagery – the trademark of the fashion photographer of Norwegian heritage residing in Paris – OLA RINDAL sneaked his way into the hearts of the jurors in the category NUDE. The spread submitted by Ola plays with shadows on clear skin. Equally purist but still deep are his productions for magazines and clients such as Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Maison Martin Margiela, Hermès, Cerruti 1881, Dazed, Another, 032C, Purple, i-D, and Double. The series was created for UNION MAGAZINE. Further works by the photographer are available on GoSee or directly via ADAMSKY.

The second GOLD winner in the category NUDE also hails from Norway. Morten BJARNHOF was born in 1951 in northern Copenhagen into a Danish-Norwegian artists family consisting of painters, sculptors and writers. Morten is mostly known for his fashion and lifestyle photography for clients such as GANT. That he also knows how to do sensual and sexy productions was demonstrated at the GoSeeAWARDS in the category NUDE, in which he received the total number of points from the jury. “I always try to...

05.10.2016 • In the category STILLS, the jury particularly noticed two photographers: Justin FANTL c/o GIANT ARTISTS from LA and Eva Roovers from Amsterdam. Both work closely at the intersection of art. Justin convinced with his fine line compositions and Eva Roovers with her imaginative arrangements and sculptures. The jurors in the category STILLS could hardly decide in light of so much creativity, and so like GOLD, SILVER was also awarded twice. Second place is actually shared by four creatives, who have extended their cosmos far beyond the limits of classic photography: ADRIAN & GIDI – aka Adrian Woods & Gidi van Maarseveen – plus SIX & FIVE, the design studio of Andy Reisinger and Ezequiel Pini from Barcelona. Third place is shared by Danish still life virtuoso MIKKEL JUL HVILSHI and still life photographer Anne Deppe from Berlin.

GoSeeAWARDS16 - PORTRAIT • PORTRAIT – the winners in the category 'Portrait' at the GoSeeAWARDS 2016 and a Mini Quest with Gold winner Sandro BAEBLER for you on GoSee

05.10.2016 • Chapeau to young Swiss photographer Sandro BAEBLER for GOLD in category PORTRAIT at our GoSeeAWARDS 2016. We took the opportunity to ask him a few short questions at UPDATE16BERLIN.

What is the most exciting thing about portrait photography in your opinion? “Portrait photography is my passion, not only because of the many interesting faces with extremely diverse features, rolls and wrinkles, but also because of the many stories hidden deep within every face. Sometimes I can read more, sometimes less from the faces. Some are like an open book while others are buried treasures. I listen to several stories from different people during short or long conversations. Often, I can only guess, particularly in the case of celebrities. They come and go so quickly that there is hardly enough time to discover more. Capturing the stories told entirely by the face is paramount to my job at the moment.”

How do you get a person to open up who is shy in front of the camera? “I don't, because that is precisely what I love about portrait photography – the essence of every human being in front...
