    Four ideas for inspiration

    Posted: July 16, 2015 by Anthony Epes   -   1 Comment

    Joshua Tree Desert, California 1993  © Anthony Epes This week I’m exploring that really cool concept of ‘indirect inspiration’ that I quoted in my post about Ernst Haas. To be honest, it’s not something I’d thought about much until I was writing about Ernst Haas and came across this quote. Haas warned

    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

    13 things Ernst Haas taught me about photography

    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

      “I would highly recommend Anthony’s London at Dawn workshop. I joined for the Tower Bridge to Columbia Road leg, and thoroughly enjoyed it (including the coffee and bagel stops along the way). The group was just the right size; Anthony was really great at tailoring his advice towards each student’s learning needs whilst also creating space for students to share their own experiences/techniques/do’s and don’ts. Not only did I learn how to avoid some typical faux pas for dawn shooting, but Anthony also inspired me to look at photographic composition in a different way (manipulating angles, exploring reflections, managing too many subjects in the same frame). All in all – a great course to go on regardless of your technical level – and if you are an avid photographer visiting London, definitely get on this course to explore some of the less obvious but beautiful bits of London. Waking up at 3am in the morning can definitely give you a new perspective on what’s interesting to photograph!”
