What exactly is fine art photography?
It’s a question many people aren’t comfortable trying to answer – it tends to be very subjective and can lead to lengthy discussion and debate. It doesn’t necessarily have to. Steve will delve into some objective ways of looking at what defines a fine art photograph, drawing on examples from his own portraiture work and the fine art works of some of his favourite Australian photographers.
Steve Wise is a fine art portrait photographer and accredited medical photographer with AIMBI in line with his work as a medical photographer at Royal Perth Hospital. He concurrently runs his own commercial photography business 27Creative, whilst feeding his personal love of art and visual narrative through his fine art portraiture.
