Contributor Profile May 2012
Featured Contributor Johan Swanepoel
We're proud to announce that Johan Swanepoel is this month's
Contributor. Hailing from South Africa with a background in
construction management, Swanepoel pursued his passion for
young man in the era of manual cameras and darkrooms.
We love his intimate wildlife photographs-powerful additions to
the Veer library.
While he claims to value modern digital equipment and
techniques, when asked if
he is a wildlife photography "purist" - Swanepoel
"No, cropping, healing, cloning, composites, etc., are part of
the tools in order to
create the image I have in mind. The final goal will mostly
dictate the rules. When
looking casually at images, I rarely question the processes
involved, but rather
appreciate the message or beauty of the subject."
