June 'Shoot The Face' contest winner

When someone or something captures my attention, I take the shot, without even thinking about it. No careful consideration of framing or composition. It’s pure instinct. I like to see the improbable emerge from humdrum daily life and grab hold of me. Just like I might grab an unsuspecting crab, and look it in the eyes and wonder what it’s thinking. “What a bizarre creature,” is what the crab is thinking… It’s all about point of view. I approach things from a broad point of view, a wide angle. The 24mm lens forces a true encounter with my subject. This is no longer observation, or the voyeurism of a distant photographer, but a quasi-terroristic approach. A holdup! “Is that what you’re like? Just there, yes, and…it’s a wrap.” Now you’ll be a part of my cabinet of curiosities.”

May 'Shoot The Face' contest winner

I’m Tomer and I’m a freelance photographer who lives in Israel. My passion for photography started in 2010, when I bought my first camera. I started with landscape photography, but after a while, I realized that street photography, and portraits is what I’m looking for. I enjoyed the challenge of photography in a complex, constantly changing environment open markets, old fashion neighborhoods, busy streets, turned to be the main focus of my work. Now, three years after I got my first camera, I believe that any shot reflects feelings and emotions, and in some cases tells us a life story. As a photographer, I’m always looking forward to take a photo that will create a unique bond among the photo, the viewers, and the story it tells us.
