My name is Alain Carpentier and I live in the province of Quebec, in Canada. I’ve worked for 8 years for an Internet provider and software development. I am currently vice president of technology of a B2B and E-commerce company. For a number of years, I had no hobby but work. Then I discovered photography and it has become my passion.

I’ve started contributing to Commons in September 2007 and have accumulated 10 promoted featured pictures. Hope to provide more in the future.

English: My regular contributions with photos and illustrations to Commons started in 2006. Photography has been a hobby for a long time, though I’m relatively new to digital techniques. I enjoy photographing people as well as nature themes and macro photography. Like in other forms of art, interpretation of reality is an important component of Photography, through which we seek to recognize beauty and show it to others. That is true not only in artsy photos but also in more illustrative works. My first serious camera was a Canon FT, the last, a Nikon D800E.

Português: A minha contribuição regular para o Commons, sob a forma de fotos e ilustrações, começou em 2006. A Fotografia tem constituído um hobby desde há muito, embora as técnicas digitais sejam para mim uma relativa novidade. Gosto de fotografar pessoas e temas da Natureza, e também de fazer macro fotografia. Tal como noutras formas de arte, a interpretação da realidade é um componente importante da Fotografia, através da qual procuramos reconhecer a beleza e mostrá-la aos outros. Isso é verdade não só em fotografia artística mas também em trabalhos mais ilustrativos. A minha primeira máquina a sério foi uma Canon FT, a última, uma Nikon D800E.

I was born in 1978 and live in Germany. I started contributing to the German Wikipedia in 2004. Two years later, in 2006, I discovered Commons and started to contribute the first photos.

I practise photography as a hobby for several years now and it still keeps providing me constantly with new challenges. I enjoy photographing moving objects (mostly cars) same as cities, humans, landscapes, nature and animals. Photography really is a versatile hobby and that is also why I enjoy it so much. Besides that I love to travel, which fits very well to my photography hobby.

Background

I'm a 29 years old programmer living in Marne-la-Vallée, in the suburbs of Paris. I started photography with an Olympus D40-Z compact camera and later got into panoramas. I realised how far we can go after I came across a POD showing a panorama of Sydney harbour on english Wikipedia. I decided I could try to do the same and that instead of keeping my pictures for myself, I could give them to Wikipedia which is so useful to me.

I shoot mainly landscape panoramas, with a preference for night architecture shots.

I use a Canon EOS 400D most of the time with an EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 and a Canon 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 lenses, and am very pleased with the results. I use and try to promote free softwares for post processing. They include Gimp, Hugin, Enblend, Enfuse and ImageMagick.

Ich wurde 1957 geboren, lebe in Trier und arbeite in der IT-Abteilung eines großen deutschen Unternehmens.

Zur Fotografie kam ich 1976, damals mit einer Revueflex 1000s, die mir 20 Jahre gute Dienste geleistet hat. Meine ersten Versuche mit einer Digitalkamera unternahm ich mit einer Kodak DX 6490 die aber auf Dauer meine Qualitätsansprüche nicht befriedigen konnte. Aber dank der Digitaltechnik hatte ich endlich nahezu volle Kontolle über die Bildergebnisse. Richtig aufwärts ging es mit der Anschaffung einer Pentax K10D.

Ich befasse mich bislang vorwiegend mit Architektur- und Reisefotografie.

Böhringer Friedrich (Fred)

Background
Deutsch: Mein Name ist Friedrich Karl Böhringer, geboren 1962 in Bregenz und wohnhaft in Wolfurt, Österreich. Als gelernter Tischlermeister bringe ich mich in der Entwicklung eines Schweizer Büromöbel- und Bürostuhlherstellers ein. Die Freizeit gehört zum grössten Teil meiner Familie, der auch drei Kinder angehören.

Eine innerbetriebliche Herausforderung brachte mich auf die Seiten von Wikipedia. Fortan war es mein Ziel diese Idee zu unterstützen. Nachdem ich kein Autor bin war für mich klar, dass ich die Seiten mit Bildern auffrischen könnte. So bin ich seit dem 25. Mai 2007 nahezu täglich in den Wikipedia und Wikimedia Commons unterwegs.

Mein Hobby ist die Fotographie
1977 im „Frankreichurlaub“ schoss ich an der Ardèche beim Kanu fahren die ersten Serien- und Landschaftsbilder. Nachdem das Ergebnis so toll war, rieten mir meine Freunde weiterzumachen. Die geliehene Praktica wurde gleich gegen eine Minolta Minolta XD7 getauscht.

Seither wurde jede „7er“ gekauft. Meine letzte von Minolta war die Konica Minolta Dynax 7D. Zu dieser und zur Sony Alpha 700 wird nun eine Nikon D300s angestellt, nachdem Sony in der Entwicklung der eigenen Objektive nicht weiter kommt und die einzig guten von Carl Zeiss für meinen Klingelbeutel nicht ausreichen.

Uwe Aranas (Cccefalon / CEphoto, Uwe Aranas)

Background

My name is Uwe Aranas. I was born 1964 in Heidenheim, Germany. After graduating as chemical engineer, I was hired by a Technical Inspections Organization. I am earning my life as pressure vessel expert in the field of industrial safety.

Once upon a time
I was a boy when my father helped me to manufacture a wooden cubical box with a side length of 30 cm. He was a vocational teacher and at that time, his subject was photography. This summer in the early 1970's, I managed to produce a blurry shot of our house with my home-made Camera obscura and still today I think, that this moment pioneered the way for my life long enthusiasm for photography. The workshop area of my father housed at that time a small chamber of approximately 2m x 1.2m that was not accessible for us boys and we had to get a special permit to enter the darkroom with this conspicious odour of chemicals and all those instruments and apparatuses, that the "digital generation" of photographers never got acquainted with. I was eager to help my father, and eventually proved to be a good assistant. After spending some time with shaking JOBO tanks, handling the exposed paper sheets in the bassins with developer, stop bath and fixer, I was awarded with my first regular camera, a Rollei 35 B. Not much of my photographic work as teenager survived study and several relocations. Times have changed, as well as my photographic equipment. Though the todays workflow in digital photography is a little bit different, I still take advantage of the B/W experiences of my boyhood.

Work scope
I started to contribute to german Wikipedia with the special scope "Sabah" some years ago. Getting notified, that there were only few photos available, I started a photo documentation project for this remote federal state of Malaysia which is still ongoing. Beside this time consuming work, I indulge in portrait and studio photography and in taking pictures of all kind of buildings and objects, that might be of encyclopedial value.

Statistics
So far, I contributed 8,064 photos to WikiCommons, where 2,269 were assessed as quality photos. Among them, there are 12 featured pictures and 3 valued images. (refresh statistics)

My name is Christian Mehlführer and I am from Vienna, Austria. I am currently working towards my PhD degree in Communications Engineering at the Vienna University of Technology.
I started with digital photography a few years ago with a Minolta Dimage S414 which I replaced by a Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F828 soon. In March 2006 I finally bought my first DSLR and—over the time—several lenses.
I love traveling to far destinations where I take most of my nature images which I contribute to Commons. A passion of mine is high resolution panorama photography for which I am using the Nodal Ninja [1] nodal point adapter on my Manfrotto tripod and PTGUI [2] for stitching. At some time in the next years I want to create my first gigapixel panorama...

Der Wolf im Wald

Background

My name is Thomas and I'm a 22-year-old German grown up near Cologne. Very often, I’m travelling to German cities to upload photos of architecture and cityscape.

With the age of 14, I got interested in photography and started with a cheap digital camera. During this episode, my main photo subjects where trains. Two years later, I bought my first DSLR, the Canon EOS 400D. As my requirements were growing fast, I bought the Canon EOS 50D in 2009 and the Canon EOS 5D Mark II in 2010. This is my main camera until today and I am still satisfied with it. Today, I don't shoot train photos anymore. After some city breaks with my family, I discovered my passion for architecture and big cities. Since 2010, I am acting in this scope. Having finished secondary school in spring 2012, I acquired a train ticket, which allows me to take nearly every train in Germany for one year. Since then, I've been traveling throughout the country looking for photo opportunities. Since autumn 2013 I am studying economics at University of Würzburg. Therefore I will upload some images of this region in the near future.


My equipment:

  • Canon EOS 5D Mark II
  • Canon EOS 50D
  • Canon EF 24-105mm 1:4L IS USM
  • Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM

David Iliff (Diliff)

Background

I'm a 34 year old Australian from Melbourne currently living in London, England.

I've always enjoyed photography, messing around with video cameras and SLRs since I was a kid, but it wasn't until digital cameras started to become (relatively) affordable did I start to take photography seriously. I started off with a 3mp Kodak DC4800 in 2001, then moved up to a 5mp Nikon CP5000 in 2002 but very quickly hit the wall in terms of flexibility and in 2003, moved up in the world to a DSLR in the form of a Canon 10D when it was first released. Since then, I've built up over time a decent collection of quality Canon glass to support my addiction hobby. In 2005, I upgraded to the Canon 5D, a full frame camera. Unfortunately I had a tripod accident and my 5D and 17-40mm f/4L lens fell into the sea, so I upgraded to a 5D Mk iii in 2012. While I've dabbled in a wide variety of photographic styles, my niche is high resolution stitched panoramic/mosaic landscapes and cityscapes, as demonstrated by my contributions to Wiki.

I'm amused and honoured to be the apparent inspiration for Benh Lieu Song's photography. ;-)

I am active mostly on the English Wikipedia but of course upload all my images to the Commons for use on other Wiki Projects.

My equipment includes:

  • Canon EOS 5D Mark III
  • Canon 24-105mm f/4L, Canon 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS, Canon 85mm f/1.8, Canon 50mm f/1.8, Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro, Samyang 14mm f/2.8, Sigma 35mm f/1.4.

Background

I'm a Yr 12 high school student in Victoria, Australia. I live in the country and hence a lot of my photography is to do with nature.
I've been contributing to Wikipedia since August 2004, if you're incredibly bored one damp evening you can read a little spiel I wrote on my first wiki-bday. I started off in photography with an el cheapo Kodak LS633 which turned out to be very good in most respects except for a complete lack of any manual control! With a bit of creative use though it managed to produce a few decent pix.
I took quite a leap really in the camera hierachy when I got a Canon 20D back in April 2005. For a year or so afterwards I was very prolific, clocking up over a thousand photos. However with real life (ie schoolwork!) making more demands on my time my output somewhat dwindled, I think my total of date is slightly under 2000 photos. Check out this for a full list
Equipment: Canon 20D, Tamron 28-75 f/2.8, Canon 17-40 f/4L, Canon 85 f/1.8, Canon 70-200 f/2.8L, Sigma 150 macro f/2.8, Canon 580EX shoe flash, Canon TC-80N remote release, Slik Pro 700DX, 2x2GB 80x flash cards.

Frank Schulenburg

Background

I’m a German native living in America, most interested in nature and travel photography. Earlier in my life, I shot film with a Nikon FM2 and at some point somehow forgot what photography meant to me. In late 2011, I rediscovered my love for taking pictures and bought a used Leica X1 that I’ve been carrying around with me ever since.

I love the arts and I believe that photographers can learn a lot from painters. Therefore, my approach to photography is highly driven by the idea of exploring light and composition. By putting a camera in front of our human eye, we learn to see things differently. It’s that joy of exploring the unexpected, of looking at shapes, colors, and textures in a different way, what makes photography so special to me.

When not chasing golden hours or traveling, I’m with my wife Payton, in Mill Valley, California.

My name is Georgios (born 1975), I have been contributing to Wikipedia and related projects since 2007. I have studied electrical engineering and computer science. Currently I am working as a teacher of computer in secondary education. I am passionate about black and white photography which I started working since 1993. I develop my black & white films myself but after 2005 I stopped developing photos in a dark room and I am using a film scanner to scan the negatives. The manual cameras I am using include Nikon FM2 and Leica R4 but most of the images I upload in commons are shot by a relatively recently bought (January 2009) Nikon D700 full-frame SLR camera. In my personal blog you can find mostly my black and white photographs. My Nikon D700 has also a GPS and most of my uploaded photos are geo-located.

I love traveling and I like to photograph architecture and monuments. A lot of my images in commons are panoramic images created by stitching software.

Luca Galuzzi

Background

I am LucaG, a software engineer from the Milano area, Italy.
Despite the beautiful locations in my country, rich in historic sites and monuments as well as crowded fashion events, my favorite locations to photograph are deserts and very high plateaus.
I'm "on top of the world" when waiting, in silence and solitude, for the right light on wide open lands, short of breath because of a rarefied atmosphere but under the deep blue sky at an altitude above 4000m.

I develop my RAW files with Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop but I'm not a fan of digital over improving. I do prefer a grainy, slightly out-of-focus image with a great emotional appeal rather then a plastic, sharp, ice-cold image.
I've been contributing to Commons with my photographs since december 2006 when studying countries like Tibet, Bolivia and Lybia on Wikipedia I noticed a lack of landscape images on related pages.

My photo gear: Canon EOS 5D Mark II, Canon 17-40 f/4L, Canon 24-105 f/4L IS, Canon 70-200 f/4L IS, Canon 50 f/1.8, Canon 430EX flash and the essential Manfrotto Carbon Fiber Tripod with Proball Quick Release Head.

Richard Bartz aka Makro Freak

Background

My name is Richard Bartz and was born 1976 in Munich, Germany. I work as an Artist/Musican and have a profound love for mountain climbing.

My road to photography
Being a kid I always kept a magnifying glass with me, a present from my grandpa. With the years passing by, and me getting older, this glass was falling more and more into oblivion but somehow it kept staying on my mind for all of this time. After retiring from my job as a visual EFX supervisor last year, and having a lot of free time as an aftereffect of this, i had the chance to go walking out in the woods and mountains of my childhood together with my dog, a Sibirian Husky, feeling like the ten year old boy with his grandfathers magnifying lens again. Though being a few years older now gives me the chance to give in to my childhood dreams and so instead of this simple childs toy, these days i prefer having my Canon Eos 400d with me, coupled with a formidable MP-E65mm lens.

Keeping the fascination for delving into the microcosms of our imminent surroundings since my childhood, my primary mission is to let other people have a chance to peek into those small worlds through my photographic works, something you usually fail to notice in your day to day life, even if you are having a walk through the woods yourself. My almost fanatical urge to take things 'micro', and convert them to our usual 'macro'-world is the reason why i took the alias of 'Makro Freak' on Wikipedia.

In my personal view, if life treats you nice, you should give something of this luck over to other people. Being a professional in Graphics and Visual EFX for over a decade, this as a chance for me to give something small back to the people through contributing some of my photographs to Wikipedia. I started doing contributions on Wikimedia Commons at 22:26, 8 May 2007.

Malene Thyssen

Background

I have a M.Sc. in biology, but am currently studying to become a school teacher. I've been contributing to the Danish Wikipedia and related projects since December 2002. I am an amateur photographer. I like to photograph nature (primarily animals) and whatever motives I pass, that I think might be useful on Wikipedia. Some of my best pictures are "lucky" snapshots. I also like the work in the "digital darkroom" editing and improving my pictures.

As a contributor to the Danish Wikipedia it is natural to submit my pictures on Commons hoping my pictures are of use in other Wikipedias and Wikimedia projects. Indeed this is a major motivation factor for me to go on photo safari.

My equipment includes: Canon EOS 400D / Canon EOS 300D / Canon EFS 18-55mm / Canon tele lens EF 75-300mm

Martin Falbisoner

Background

My name is Martin Falbisoner. I'm an historian and archivist, currently living and working near Cologne. I discovered Commons in 2012 and soon after began sharing my own photographs. I strongly believe in the notion of open content, especially in the idea of free exchange of cultural works - which I also quickly learned to rely on for professional purposes. Consequently I am gladly willing to share my own pictures with anyone who is interested in using them.

Photography is just a hobby of mine and therefore I don't have to specialize in or limit myself to any specific genres. Besides sharing my photos on Commons, I also actively participate in international contests under the patronage of FIAP.

I use Canon equipment, usually my EOS 5D Mark III with lenses reaching from 17mm to 400mm. My favorite RAW editor is DPP, I also use GIMP, Hugin, ShiftN, and FixFoto.

After obtaining my degree in physics, I developed an interest in the law and trained as a patent and trademark attorney before completing a law degree. I retired in March 2013 after 30 years in practice (22 as a partner) with a London patent attorney firm.

Photography has been a long-term hobby, and it has been gratifying to discover just how many people and organizations look to Wikimedia Commons as a source of freely-usable images.

I am more than happy to help anyone who is in need of the type of image I take, either for use on Wikipedia or elsewhere. I use a Canon 5D Mk II.

Marc Ryckaert (MJJR)

Background

Born in Bruges (Belgium), 1949. Historian.

I started at Commons on February 4th, 2007. Preferred photographic subjects: monuments, landscapes, trains, ships, travel pictures…

Equipment: during many years, I used a Leica R6 with a 28mm PC-Super-Angulon-R shift lens - which was absolutely fantastic. In january 2006, I switched to digital photography, starting with a humble Canon PowerShot A620. At present I'm mainly working with a Nikon D90 and a AF-S Nikkor 18-200mm: certainly not the best conceivable lens, but very practical during travels abroad or bicycle tours in West Flanders.

Background

I am a 19 year old Tanzanian studying computer science in Bangalore, India. I always found photography very interesting, shooting with disposable cameras and cheap point and shoots. It was only after I joined Wikipedia and wikimedia that I took a very serious interest in photography. I bought a Nikon Coolpix and after that was nicked, invested all my savings to purchase my first dSLR. The investment was not a waste and I have been able to explore nature as I had never imagined!

My portfolio mainly consists of macro photographs of arthropods and plant life and occasionally panoramics.

My equipment includes:

Background

Fascinated by the natural world from an early age I was fortunate to get a job in East Timor, home to some of the most diverse and abundant marine habitats. A desire to share the wondrous beauty of the coral reefs with my wife and one year old daughter, pushed me to explore underwater photography.

After accumulating a number of images from this fascinating underwater environment, Wikimedia offered an excellent platform to share our marine world with others and promote greater awareness and importance of nature conservation for the benefit of future generations.

Image contributions to Wikimedia include marine life from Haiti and wildlife from Democratic Republic of Congo.

Poco a poco (Diego)

Background

My name is Diego, I was born in Spain, but feel myself a world citizen. I love traveling and getting to know different cultures and languages. I have been contributing intensively since 2007 in the Wikimedia projects, especially in the Spanish Wikipedia.

I started -with analog photography- in 1990, when I was 16, got my first handy digital camera (Casio Exilim EX-S1) in 2002 and my first DSLR in 2008 (Canon EOS 450D). After getting inspired by Commons in 2011 I bought that year my first high-quality objective (Canon EF 100m UVM IS) in order to improve the quality of my pictures and contribute with as many QIs as possible (so far 5,300). In 2012 I got a Canon EOS 5D Mark II and since then I have been enhancing my equipment: Canon EF 24-105mm UVM IS, Canon EF 17-40mm L USM, Canon MP-E 65mm and a macro Ring Lite MR-14EX flash for my macro objectives.

I enjoy photographing everything that moves and doesn't, but love especially architecture (above all by night), macro photography and landscapes.

I was born in 1978 in Moscow, Russia. In 2005, I became interested in sharing free knowledge, and apart from writing I also started to contribute self-made photos for some Wikipedia articles. On 4 May 2006, I submitted my very first upload on Commons, and meanwhile I have uploaded more than 5.000 self-made photographs here. My continous photographic activity for Wikimedia projects during all these years has also been my motivation to learn a lot about photography by doing same. I am also active in the image evaluation projects on Commons – the Quality image and the Featured picture candidates.

My main field of interest in the photography are cities, public transport, and architecture; I have also some experience in nature photography and portraits. Most of my uploads have been used in several Wikimedia projects. Of course, any external usage of my images is appreciated as well. You may choose between „Creative Commons“ or „Free Art License“, but an attribution of the photographer (A.Savin, Wikimedia Commons) is mandatory anyway.

My name is Wladyslaw (born 1975), I am contributing to Wikipedia and related projects since August 2004. I have photographed years ago with an analog single-lens reflex camera (Fujica) and started 2004 with digital photography. As I realized that my compact camera does not fit my rising pretensions any more I have changed 2006 to a digital SLR. Currently I am using a Nikon D800.

• Here you can find detailed information about my equipment.

I like to photograph architecture, city-skylines and landscapes. Many of my buildings I picture are towers in all variations, e.g. bell towers of churches or television towers. But I am interesting in architecture in general starting at historical buildings and going to modern architecture. I am very interested in brutalist architecture and fascinated about the combination of concrete and steel.

For me it's charming and a nice challenge to detect interesting view points even of well-known buildings or landscapes and to show a new angle of vision as possible. And although I have contributed more than 4000 picture to this project my ideas for new pictures and motives does not end. There is a lot of work still waiting to have been done. ;-)

I'm a physicist by profession and I'm working in the field of information sciences. My main hobby is working on Free Software in the Debian GNU/Linux Distribution where I started the Debian-Med project. My second hobby is taking nature photos. I do this in my holidays exclusively and I'm a conservative photographer that sticks to using slides for his "real photos". As a consequence some of my uploaded images are not as good as the original slide would allow because the process of digitising was done automatically via Kodak Photo CD where not every single image gets the subtlety it would deserve. In case I will find some more time I might redo some scans manually but this is nothing that will happen soon.
