Hello Roie, Thank you for the interview.
Please introduce yourself and tell us a little bit about yourself
“I’m a wildlife and nature photographer and I’m an activist in the field of photography, as I’m promoting the love of photography wherever I can. I’m the CEO of the Galitz School of Photography (Israel’s largest photography school) and CEO of Phototeva Photo Travel company.”
Are you Autodidact or you went to school to study photography?
“I am self taught in photography. Everything I know I learned from practice, friends and the Internet.”
How long have you been a professional photographer?
“For 12 years or more now.”
How would you describe your overall style?
“I’m trying to share the moment with the viewer with as little buffer as possible. This means I will try to get close and personal, I will do my best to get the eyes clear and maintain a “clean” scene.
What type of cameras do you shoot with? I’m using a Nikon D810”
What is your favorite photography accessory, other than your camera? “My Nikon 500mm F/4 VR Lens for wildlife and the Nikon 85mm F/1.4 for portraits and my Nikon 14-24mm F/2.8 for landscape.”
If you had to choose one lens which one would it be and why? “A 500mm or 600mm F/4, since I do like to get close to the action and get the details that are invisible to the naked eye and there’s always the added bonus of a silky smooth background bokeh.”
What is your most used Photoshop tool, plug-in, action set etc.?
