Andrew Koran

My entry into photography was at age 14 when I borrowed my father's Voigtlander Vito B range finder camera. I participated in a photography class in high school, and used a Russian Zenit-B and a Minolta SRT101 for my projects. I later progressed to a Hasselblad and medium format film photography, mostly in the landscape and nature themes. In the summer of 1970, I embarked (somewhat unannounced and to the dismay of my parents) on a solo photo safari in the Florida Everglades, focusing entirely on nature and landscapes. I shot film until digital cameras became more affordable. I used Canon digital cameras for many years. In 2009, a friend invited me to Bangkok, Thailand for a mentoring workshop on model photography, which pretty much changed the direction and landscape of my photographic endeavors forever. In 2011, I switched to Sony digital cameras and in 2012, I added a few film cameras to my gear collection, in medium and large formats. Today, when I'm shooting model and portrait photography , I strive to capture an emotional content, or as my mentor would say, a "Landscape of emotion…". My photography moto phrases are... "Landscape of emotion…"... and "Express not impress…"...
