Friday Featured Photographer #1: Philip Johnson
There are a number of talented individuals within the RedBubble community who consistently produce and publish high quality artwork that regularly inspires me to do the same. Starting in July, I want to help draw attention to these artists by featuring one on my blog each Friday.
One of the most inspirational and talented photographers that I have been fortunate enough to converse with on RedBubble has been Philip Johnson. His RedBubble profile advertises a massive 475,000 views, which is understandable given the quantity of exceedingly high quality photography that Philip has published on the site. In addition to publishing his own artwork on RedBubble, Philip takes a lot of time giving back to the community by hosting a number of groups on the site:
- Art Deco Heaven – Period 1910 until 1939
- HDR Photography (one of my favourite groups on RedBubble *smiles*)
- Heritage Listed and Other Trusts Sites World Wide
- National Parks of the World & Great Parks Of The World
- Nikon DSLR Users Group (I won’t hold this against him *grin*)
- Sydney’s Northern Beaches
- The Greatest View in the World
- Unwanted, Abandoned & Saved Through Preservation
- Wide Angle and Fisheye Lens Photography
Philip focuses on landscape, architectural and heritage subject matter (this could be why I personally enjoy his work so much). He specialises in High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography and has commissions in fine art prints, wall murals and real estate. His work has been published in Australian and US publications, include Nine To Five here in Oz. His work has also been used in advertising campaigns, including a recent National Australian Tourism Campaign, and has been exhibited in a number of private galleries.
Despite knowing how busy he must be with hosting all those groups while continuing to work on his own successful photography business, I asked Philip to choose a few of his personal favourites from his folio to show in this blog post. Fortunately, he was happy to oblige, and came back to me with these images (click any thumbnail for a larger view)…
Of course, these are just a few of Philip’s favourite images… he has published over 1,500 other fascinating and awe-inspiring images in his folios on RedBubble and SmugMug. I cannot recommend highly enough that you take a moment to click through and check them out!
