Ziga Radsel started in photography 10 years ago at Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana. While studying Industrial Design there he also took a course in photography and immediately feel in love with it. Over the next couple of years he continued to improve his skills and combined it with his passion for travel, trying to capture mesmerizing landscape photographs from all around the world. Now he is a successful freelance landscape and food photographer.
Since I can remember I've been absolutely obsessed with creative arts. Even in primary school I was always sketching and drawing in my notebooks instead of listening to the lectures. I was always trying to reproduce as realistically as I could the nature that surrounded me. With my first camera acquisition that eventually evolved into love of photography. Finding that perfect perspective, getting the light and composition just right, capturing the moment and sharing it with others is what photography is all about for me. Helping others see the world and it's beauty through my eyes.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
While working as an freelance industrial designer developing a product I was also a lead photographer for all the marketing material. I also did a couple of shoots for the Alpine Association of Slovenia mostly to be featured in their annual calendars. Whenever I'm doing landscape photography I try to get the sense of the place through distinct subjects in the composition and with the help of remarkable light and weather conditions. In New Zealand I was collaborating as a freelance photographer with a glamping company to do some shoots of the events they participated in and created time lapses of setting up and taking down the tents. The goal here was to illustrate how the place was transformed through the whole process of setting up.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
