About the event:

Thank you to all of those wonderful Camversationalists who requested Vanda share her work with us. It has been a real pleasure organising this with Vanda and I am looking forward to it!

About the Talk

We all evolve along our photographic journey. We shift our focus to different subjects, techniques and equipment. For Vanda, the biggest change was moving away from single images to bodies of work. It allows her to go deeper on the subject, theme, location or idea, rather than just get one lucky shot here and there.

In her presentation, Vanda will focus on her journey from capturing single images, through creating collections, to working on short and long-term projects. She will explore how working in projects helps you get out of a creative block and find your own personal vision. She will discuss several of her ongoing and completed photographic projects, how they keep her motivated and how they help her develop an individual and personal point of view. She will demonstrate how a project-based approach and looking beyond a single image can lead to developing new, exciting ideas that can breathe fresh air into your photographic journey.

Vanda will also touch a subject of producing books as a final result of working on a project; and she will share her experience she gained during the process of self-publishing her books.

She says:

"Many times my photographs are a response to the moment in time that I find myself in, however quite often I like to focus on a particular subject. Over time I realised that only one image is not enough to reflect the way I see and feel about the world around me. Therefore, in recent years I have been focusing on working in projects rather than capturing individual images.”

About Vanda

A photographer by heart, with love of silence and solitude, poetry, music and walking in the wild.

Based in London, she is a member of Arena Photographers group and a Brand Ambassador for KASE Filters. She has been a Landscape Photographer of the Year and Scottish Landscape Photographer of the Year judge. Aside from her day job as a software developer and her love of photography, she enjoys giving lectures about her journey as a photographer and her experiences along the way.

Having grown up in an industrial area of former Czechoslovakia, she soon learnt how to appreciate beauty of the natural world. Far away from the noise, and hustle and bustle of a big city she finds inspiration in quieter scenes and intimate details, whether it is on the coast, in woodland or in the countryside, even in industrial wastelands. In her images she strives to reflect the atmosphere, feeling, and sheer wonderment that our natural world can evoke with us.

These days you can find her along the edgelands and in undiscovered places looking for all the beauty waiting to be captured.
