    Creativity and Age

    Posted: July 3, 2015 by Anthony Epes   -   3 Comments

    Greeting from a Saharan heated Paris. I think there is this weird idea floating around that creativity is a young person’s game, particularly certain genres of creativity (photography and music for sure). That somehow you are at your peak creatively in your twenties and thirties, and then it’s downhill from then on.

    How to Photograph London: Juxtaposition

    Posted: June 23, 2015 by Anthony Epes   -   1 Comment

    I came to London in 2000 from Los Angeles. I followed a girl and a book deal, two excellent reasons to move continents, and I’ve lived here ever since. London is such a crazy, huge, messy city, and it’s endlessly interesting to photograph. But the vastness can be intimidating. A

    This week a short post to say that Diana and I have got something super incredible to give you (and it’s totally free….gratis, nada pesos). We’ve been working on this for the past six months. I’m now going to drop the English facade of mild self deprecation that I’ve had to

    Greetings from a balmy Rome. Today I wanted to take a look at Ernst Haas, my favourite photographer and, hands down, the biggest photographic influence on my work. When I discovered his books in the 80’s I was blown away by the beauty he discovered in the most mundane views or

    Greetings from Istanbul

    I arrived at my hotel last week in the dark. It was late and I didn’t see much in the cab ride. All I knew as I stared out over the Sea of Marmara from my third floor balcony was that the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia were just 200 meters

    “One’s destination is never a place but a new way of seeing things.” Henry Miller A few evenings ago I left my office in Waterloo to head home to see my rambunctious kids and have dinner with my wife. The evening had an interesting feel to it, a misty, wintry

    “Travel and change of place impart new vigor to the mind.” Seneca This month marks the beginning of a busy spring and summer where I’ll be taking several photo trips. My first stop is Istanbul for a month to work on my book of the city at dawn and to run a workshop

    From People. © Anthony Epes 2015 Finding the confidence to make brilliant portraits out on the street About ten years ago, on one of my dawn escapades, I came across a homeless man who was asleep in an alley. He had covered himself in magazines and newspaper to keep warm. Lying on his chest

      “I went on Anthony’s London at Dawn workshop in August 2014, and would definitely recommend it to anyone who is thinking of signing up. I had owned a DSLR for a couple of years and had a decent working knowledge of my camera and how to use it before the course. But I learnt a lot on the course, particularly around seeing images in everyday things, composition, and how to recognise and use interesting light to improve my photos. I think that before I did the course I was in some ways in a bit of a photo rut, for instance settling for aperture priority and auto white balance; this course got me out of that and gave me some new inspiration. It was also really good fun! And although I had a reasonable working knowledge of my camera and experience using it before the course, this is be no means necessary – the groups are small, so Anthony has time to work with everyone individually at different points over the weekend, offering tips to suit individual needs. There is also plenty of opportunity to ask questions, and I had a couple of interesting discussions which got me thinking in new ways. So all in all, highly recommended.”
