Porsche 911e, letnik 1970 / Porsche 911e, year 1970

Category : Avtomobilizem · (6) Comments · by Dec 28th, 2012

Pretekle dni sem imel prijetno nalogo fotografirati enega izmed najbolj ikoničnih športnih avtomobilov prejšnjega stoletja – Porsche 911E iz leta 1970. Avtomobil je v izjemnem stanju, restavriran pri podjetju CRC iz Ljubljane. In glede na to, da se notranjost in platišča na željo lastnika niti niso restavrirala, res uspešno skriva svoja leta. V turobno sivi zimski sezoni zna biti kar izziv fotografirati klasični športni živo zelene barve, sploh kadar plane kvari oblačna vremenska napoved. A vseeno se je našlo par uric lepega vremena in prijeten ambient, v katerem karakter porscheja pride do izraza. Pri planiranju lokacij in logistiki mi je bila v veliko pomoč Borina Mišica. Posebej nepogrešljiva je bila pri fotografiranju notranjosti, saj bi se sam zelo težko stlačil na zadnje sedeže. 😉

For the past few days I had a pleasant assignment to photograph one of the most iconic sports cars of the 20th century – The Porsche 911E from the year 1970. This car is in incredible condition and was restored at CRC company in Ljubljana. And even though the owner wished to keep the interior and wheels original, or better said unrestored, the car hardly shows it’s age. In the dull winter season, photographing a vivid green sports car can turn into quite a challange… Especially, when the weather forecast doesn’t promise any sunrays in the next couple od days… But we still managed to find a couple of hours of good weather and a pleasant ambient in which the Porsche’s character really stood out. Borina Mišica was assisting me on the photoshoot. She offered me lots of help with location planning, logistics and she really proved to be indispensable for photographing the car’s interior as I probably couldn’t manage to squeeze in the back seats. 😉

Embalaža izdelka je prav tako pomembna kot vsebina, zato sem za stranko oblikoval še tematsko embalažo v stilu te čudovite klasične 911:
The package is as important as the content itself, so I designed a DVD case and a “porsche fuchs” stlye CD label for the customer to match his classic 911:

1. Vseslovenska vstaja / 1st All-Slovenian Uprising

Category : Demonstracije, reportaža · No Comments · by Dec 24th, 2012

Po napornem delovnem vikendu v Kranjski Gori sem končno našel čas za objavo serijo fotografij s petkovih protestov. Torej, v petek, 21. 12. 2012 se je v Ljubljani na Trgu republkike zgodila 1. vseslovenska vstaja naroda. Državljani, nezadovoljni s politično elito, so s celotne Slovenije prišli izraziti svoje ogorčenje nad dejanji in ponašanjem trenutne vlade (in politike nasploh). Kot državljana (in fotografa) me veseli, da so protesti minili mirno, brez nasilja in izgredov. Protesti so potekali v znamenju skendiranja, duhovitih transparentov in prepevanja pesmi… Z izjemo nekaj feminističnih pobudnic, ki so parlament (oz. bolje rečeno policiste) skušale zasuti s porabljenimi damskimi vložki…

After a hardworking weekend in Kranjska Gora ski resort, I finally found some time to publish a photo series from Friday’s protests. So, on Friday, 21st of December 2012, Ljubljana was overflown with many citizens of Slovenia, unsatisfied with our corrupt polititians. I am very happy that protests went peacefully and no violence happened. Protests this time were all about chanting, witty banners and singing… with an exception of some feminist activists who tried to throw used “press-on towels” in parilament (or better said policemen)…

Trikotniki in krivulje / Triangles and curves

Vsake toliko časa si je treba vzeti nekaj trenutkov zase in nahraniti strasti. V mojem primeru strasti do abstrakcij…

Every once and a while we have to take a couple of moments for ourselves to nourish our passion. In my case, passion for abstraction…

Protesti – poglavje Ljubljana / Demonstrations – chapter Ljubljana

Category : Demonstracije, Ljudje · (16) Comments · by Dec 8th, 2012

Tako, po dvotedenskem premoru ponovno pišem blog. A to ne pomeni, da nisem fotografiral. Resnica je daleč od tega. Tako dejaven, kot sem zadnje čase, nisem bil že dolgo… No, saj časi so taki. Narod se prebuja iz sna in terja nazaj svojo državo. Kot fotograf sem skušal slediti dogajanju na protestih, osredotočal pa sem se bolj na kulturni in mirni del protestov. Tako sem v času, ko je divjala prava vojna med skrajneži in policisti, sem na drugi strani maxi marketa ujel eno svojih boljših fotografij do sedaj; zamaskirano policistko, pripadnico posebne policijske enote, v gneči svojih kolegov v ščitnikih.

Ob tem bi rad pohvalil naše policiste in policistke, ki so se po mojem mnenju odlično odrezali na protestih v Ljubljani.

Fotografsko serijo sem razdelil na tri dele, po datumih ljubljanskih vstaj:

It’s been two weeks since I last published a blog. But, this doesn’t mean I wasn’t active in this time. The truth couldn’t be further from that. For the last couple of weeks, I feel like my camera has somehow mated with my hand and I can’t let go… But, these times are like this, I figure. Sort of decisive for our wakening nation. As a photographer, I tried to follow the happenings as fast as I cold, but I mainly focused on the peaceful demonstrations So, during the battle between hooligans and policemen, I made one of my best photos yet; I photographed this masked policewoman in a crowd of her armoured policemen colleagues.

I’d like to take the opportunity to show credit to our law enforcement officers, which did a tremendous task at demonstrations in Ljubljana.

I’ve split the photos of the demonstrations on three seperate parts:

fotografija policistke, pripadnice PPE, ki je kar široko zaokrožila na fb omrežju.
