28 Images of Photographers Getting Their Shot


Sheen Watkins recently wrote brilliantly about the way photographers see the world; the way we feel about our subjects — animate and inanimate; the way we identify and interpret beauty; what motivates us and keeps us passionate about the craft of image making. As Sheen revealed, a photographer’s vision is a direct extension of the way she thinks about photography. It all starts in the mind, abstract thing that it is.

So, there’s a mental element to photography. What about the physical aspect? I don’t know about you but I’m fascinated by watching other photographers. I watch them bend, stretch, double over, contort in ways that sometimes seem almost inhuman — or superhuman. I always assume that such displays of concentration are representative of a good idea; otherwise, why get your clothes dirty just for a shot of a flower? Well, to that photographer it’s obviously more than just another flower shot; he’s got a vision he needs to realize.

This collection of images is about photographers in action, doing whatever it is they do to get the perfect shot. Surely, many of you will be able to relate.

I’ve astounded myself with the patience and perseverance I exhibit in pursuit of a shot.
There’s one particular location I had to visit many times in order to ‘capture’ a stunning sunset. The window of opportunity wasn’t big, I had only a couple of weeks for the geometry to work. I could only get there on weekends. But it paid off, in the second year, probably my eighth visit, the stars aligned, metaphorically speaking, reward my efforts and a stunning sunset.

Nice collection – always a favourite on our photowalks to capture the immersed others while practising the camera-sutra
