This is Michal Warda – Collection Six Judge
Excited to reveal our fifth and final judge for Collection Six: The fantastic Michal Warda of WhiteSmoke Studio! Based in London, UK, and shooting all over the world, Michal’s creative documentary approach is something to behold; honoured that he’ll be casting his eyes over our Reportage and Story Awards for Collection Six.
As well as winning numerous awards themselves as a Studio – including being named one of the World’s Best Wedding Photographers by Professional Photographer Magazine, and numerous ISPWP and WPJA Awards, Michal, with his partner Dorota, have spoken at workshops and conferences around the world, including the upcoming Boring Workshop in 2019.
There’s a real depth to Michal’s imagery; patterns, layering and clever juxtapositions – elements that really make you look deep into each frame. “Purposefully looking to capture the moment between the moments”, as Michal says on his website; an approach which really resonates with us here at TiR
Thanks again to Michal for being one of our five judges for Collection Six; we can’t wait to see what our panel choose as winners in just under two months’ time (in order for an image or Story to be awarded, it must be voted for by at least three judges. Entries are currently open for Collection Six; deadline is 23:59 UK time on 23rd November 2018. You can see winners of previous Collections over here).
Come join us at TiR; we want to showcase the very best in documentary wedding photography – both as individual captures (our Reportage Awards) and the art of storytelling, of consistently and creatively capturing a wedding (our Story Awards, which are for a series of 15 – 20 images from a single wedding).
