Christopher Robinson, editor of AlphaUniverse.com sits down with renowned New York street photographer Vivienne Gucwa. They discuss the unlikely path she took to becoming a photographer, her love of shooting in extreme conditions and her once-in-a-lifetime expedition to the Arctic where she was limited to just a Sony α7R II and 24-70mm G Master lens. Vivienne also talk about the ins and outs of social media for photographers and how her career has flourished through social media.
In Tech Talk, Sony’s Mark Weir describes the lesser-known advantages of Sony mirrorless camera and lens design.
Our Do This Now tip comes from Vivienne Gucwa to help beginning photographers jump start their craft.
Vivienne Gucwa is a full-time artist. She pays her rent in Manhattan fully with the money she makes from her art. It was a long road to get to this point in her life and career, especially since she grew up quite poor and she hasn’t had any family support as an adult. Vivienne is grateful for this life and her career and she pinches myself almost every day. If she could bottle that feeling and share it, she would!
Vivienne Gucwa's work is licensed commercially and also sold as prints in collections around the world. She also frequently partners with brands, and destinations to do campaigns featuring her work.
