Photo Competition

I've been meaning to go to the Historical, Vintage & Classic Cars Museum of Kuwait.  This week would have been the perfect time as they're organising a photo competition.  Unfortunately I'm out of town and won't be able to make this one.  If you're interested in participating, you will need to submit your entries by 12th May.  I will try to make it for the exhibition.  

Competition: Facebook page        Museum: Website

Shame you won't reach it, bet you'd win it, just saying out of common sense, hehe. Anyways, I've been wanting to ask, do you have a photographer as your idol, or where your inspiration comes from?

Your comment is as nice to read as it is untrue :)

Inspiration comes from a beautifully-lit object, something colourful or with an interesting pattern and a genuine smile (usually from a child). Other than that I look at photographers' work all the time on flickr, twitter, galleries, magazines... wherever and whenever I can. I didn't study photography so I don't know who the true pioneers and icons are. However I did once see a portrait of Winston Churchill which I found myself looking at for hours and hours. I later found out it's by a renowned photographer (portraits in particular) called Yousuf Karsh. I'm only just dipping my toes into the sea of portraiture and I can already see that this man was a true genius.

This is his official website: http://karsh.org
and the wikipedia entry about him: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yousuf_Karsh

Oh yeah, I remember having read about part of this guys biography about the Armenian war, but anyways, you've supplied me with a good read as his Wikipedia page was pretty descent compared to most.

I just came back here now because I came to think of something while reading this article in Gizmodo, maybe you should check it out. The link (http://gizmodo.com/#!top/5798062) will take you to their weekly/monthly photo contest, where they get judged in every single artsy way a photo can be judged by, hehe. Just thought it'd interest you and maybe winning one/several of those contest(s) could boost up your site readers and/or simply create some challenges within the photographing world that you didn't know existed.
