Jiri Langpaul


by Jiri Langpaul (Czech Republic)

My name is Jiri Langpaul. Last fifteen years I’ve spent working in advertising agencies as artdirector and creative director. In photography I am interested in making portraits of people. I do not have the ambition to become a reportage or documentary photographer and the reason I have atended the workshop is that I want to understand the craft from all sides.

Written review by ERIK VROONS,
Editor-at-large for GUP Magazine

The student, Jiri Langpaul, obviously has had training in the technical aspects of portrait photography (use of studiolight, positioning of sitters, background control etc) and indeed, has a longstanding career in advertising/art directing/creative directing.

Jiri states that he has no particular interest in becoming a reportage or documentary photographer – although portrait photography can be a useful genre in the latter.

When it comes to creating a series, a conceptual approach is essential. Although several parameters have been set – also due to the technical skills already mastered by Jiri – there are still a wide variety of ‘styles’ recognizable within the range of pictures produced for this workshop. This makes it difficult to recognize the work arriving from one and the same photographer/artist.
