Berlin meeting in October 2014 - 9th update

Posted By KPK on May 05, 2014

Dear "Berlin Meeting 2014" participants,

General:
Last weekend I met our co-guide in Berlin and we discussed some more basic points for the tours on Saturday and Sunday. You will receive handouts with extracts of the city map with tours and meeting points sketched in when we met for the first time on Saturday morning.

Dinner on Saturday:
For all who are interested in an early evening meeting for dinner on Saturday in a nice Indian restaurant please send an email to kpk ( at ) kpk-photography.de or a message using the contact form of this website so that I can book the location for a given number of participants early enough (I will repeat this request again during the summer but final reservation should be done not later than end of August).

Early birds meeting on Friday:
Will be arranged close before the meeting.

For the wind channel group:
I also had the opportunity to visit the historic wind channel last weekend and could talk with some of the members of staff there. Please note that inside the wind channel we will have only limited light sources. A tripod could be very helpful. Of course you also can use a camera flash light.

Be patient All participants will be provided with exact details of the tours as well as possible meeting points and times, information on the Berlin public transportation system, contact telephone numbers and more close before the meeting via private message or email. Peter

Start of the new series "A VintAge View"

Posted By KPK on May 03, 2014

Today I'm proud to release my new series "A VintAge View".
In this series you will find images with special color tonings meanwhile seen very often in different media like movies, photographs or other art works. The color tonings show a range from different typical socalled vintage color tonings as well as colors known from instagram filters or special color combinations like cross processing and others. You will find some of my already published images shown in these new colors as well as some new and so far unpublished works. The series belongs to the ongoing ones, so that you can expect more images in the course of time.

Enjoy the tour!

Berlin meeting in October 2014 - 8th update

Posted By KPK on April 27, 2014

Dear "Berlin Meeting 2014" participants,

Some quick info in between:
Next month there will be an informal meeting with my co-guide in Berlin. I'll post any relavant information here in this thread.

Another important information:
Today I was asked what is planned in the case of a cancellation of the meeting. Since this is a private invitation/event, there is no claim for any compensation. All your preparations for the visit in Berlin (e.g. journey, accomodation, etc.) are done at your own risk. Nevertheless, in the event of the really unlikely case of a cancellation, you will be provided with all the information material prepared up to this timepoint (tour plan, city map, public transportation system information, reservations for special events etc.), so that it's up to you to perform the meeting anyway. But don't worry, I'm convinced we will see us in October in Berlin!

Berlin meeting in October 2014 - 4th update

Posted By KPK on January 23, 2014

Dear "Berlin Meeting 2014" participants,

It seems as if the "Historischer Windkanal Adlershof" (historic wind channel Adlershof) found the interest of the majority.

I've contacted the responsible contact person for this location (which is a part of the Campus Humboldt University of Berlin) and received the permission to visit the wind channel on Saturday 11th October 2014. Exact time has to be arranged (but I suggested early afternoon). We will have at least one hour for the visit. I've also asked regarding permission to take photos and it's ok for "private purposes" (no commercial use of the images). Every participant has to pay a fee of 5.00 Euro.
So I ask everybody who wants to join the wind channel visit to agree to pay the fee. Please write me a email with your confirmation (to kpk ( at ) kpk-photography.de or use the contact form of this website ) as soon as possible because the location owner likes to have the number of participants. If you agree with the above written and I received your confirmation regarding participation and fee, I'll give the info to the location owner and they will submitt a contract to me. Please try to send your confirmation as soon as possible.

Thank you!

Peter

Jury presentation in the framework of the ATHENS Architectural Photo Contest

Posted By KPK on December 03, 2013

ATHENS Workshop 2013 & Formatt Hitech Filters Architectural Photography Contest
- Jury Presentation Klaus-Peter Kubik -

Another member of our distinguished jury for the Athens Hitech Contest today. We're getting closer to the deadline and I'm very excited about it. I've already gathered part of the submissions for the contest and waiting for more, but you'll have to be patient as I'll keep them secret till the Big Day. Thanks again to our main sponsor Formatt Hitech (I hope you checked out their Cyber Monday offer for the JT ProStop IRND filter kit - our 1st prize) and to Rod Clark the VP of marketing at Hitech for taking part in the organization of the FIRST contest of architectural photography ever organized at a workshop in Greece (yes, I think I can claim my place in the Guinness Book for quite a few photography 'firsts' these past years : ) a contest that has as goal to make everyone fall in love with B&W architectural photography as I did many years ago. Our sponsor Stark-Magazine is very kind and will publish the winning images in the magazine and I really can't wait to see which images these will be.

So, today I give you Klaus-Peter Kubik, not only a great and very prolific German architectural photographer but one of the best persons I know, from all points of view. Peter is too modest in his bio here, but you have to know he has won countless distinctions in just as many photography contests over a period of many years. He's doing this job from about the time I was getting ready to be born and he is still full of enthusiasm and inspiration. Which can only make me say: "Hats off to you, Peter! You're great!!"

And now, let's give the word to KPK, as he calls himself, and read a few more things in his bio.
For even more go visit his site and admire a lot of good architectural photography http://kpk-photography.de/

Klaus-Peter Kubik (KPK) is a award-winning amateur photographer located in Germany with preferences for architecture photography and to a lesser extent landscape and macro photography. Klaus-Peter started photographing in Berlin in the early 70s with street and documentary photography before switching to architecture with digital cameras in 2003. KPK particularly likes using graphical elements to create an attractive composition by including the shapes, areas, structures, and light/shadow effects as they often were intended to be seen by the responsible architect. KPK's works are awarded in several national and international competitions. His images are regularly printed in different photo magazines,

books, and calendars. KPK is member of the German Photographic Society (DVF). The DVF is member of the FIAP - Fédération Internationale de l'Art Photographique

The other members of the jury are: Joel Tjintjelaar Rod Clark , Julian Escardo Akira Takaue Inaki Hernandez-Lasa , Dennis Guichard and Julia Anna Gospodarou

Berlin meeting in October 2014 - 1st update

Posted By KPK on November 13, 2013

Dear "Berlin Meeting 2014" participants,

Date suggestion for the Berlin Meeting 2014:
Friday, October 10th - Monday, October 13th

On Friday October 10th a first informal meeting for all the "early birds" should be possible.
Tour days are Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th.
If some special requirements can only be fulfilled on a normal working day, forenoon of Monday 13th could be used for that.

If possible to check it at the moment, there will be no big fair or another major event this weekend, so booking hotels should be possible at "normal" prices.

Thank you!

Peter

In the times before the Berlin Wall was torn down you could discover weird szenes in this opressed city. The following image was taken sometime in the eighties in the Kreuzberg district of Berlin. Not only the wall but also the lonesome child with its baby buggy and the big dog made this an exceptional moment. It's a scan from a small print, converted to b/w.

Berlin Spotlights I - analogue age

Posted By KPK on April 26, 2012

During my nearly 25 years long stay in Berlin from 1977 to 2001 I made some photographs with a analogue Nikon SLR. The image below is a scan from an old print. It's a kind of a memorial and shows the facade of an old bunker painted with a some square meter big image of ruins in the Potsdamer street in Berlin in 1945. I took the image somehow in the middle eighties last century.
