The first in a series of mini-interviews with photographers who contribute to the UNdane Flickr pool, and a showcase of their photographs.
I'm kicking off by introducing Big Rock Cat, AKA Bobby Pfeiffer, resident of sunny California, USA.
Her Flickr page is an array of travel and sunshine and every day scenes portrayed from a cheeky and fun-loving perspective.
What do you love about photography?
'I love the fact that the camera is my extended vision, an extra pair of eyes. I am an extremely visual person and I need to see things in a new and interesting way every time. I love the light play, the challenges in perspective, and the act of composing a shot, and in this regard photography is much like writing.
I also very much like the way photography communicates with people - it's a direct and unbiased representation and the rest depends on the personal interpretation.
And of course, I like to just go out and hang around with my camera. It's a great way to meet people and to express ideas. '
What most inspires you to take photographs?
'The right light, an expression on the face of a loved one, a feeling...everything inspires me, really.'
If you could go anywhere to photograph anything, what would it be?
'Ha! I would literally go anywhere and photograph anything! Why limit myself if I had the choice?! However, I want to visit NY and shoot there; the Aurora Borealis (although I hate the cold); wild animals, especially big cats in their natural habitat, and of course, I would love to take the portrait of some of my favorite rock stars, especially Zack DeLa Rocha and Eddie Vedder.'
What does the UNdane mean to you?
'Well, I guess it's something similar to what I stand for in my Life, Love, Art blog - life as art.'
What are your favourite UNdane things to photograph?
'Hard to say. I would go for objects like cups of coffee made looking alien (as shown below).'
Thanks Bobby :)
