Hello, Rich McCor!

Describe…

…yourself using three attributes?

  • Photographer, Perceptive, Dexterous.

…your creative style?

  • With paper cut-outs, I transform and reinvent landmarks and landscapes around the world. It’s a style that’s been formed through a combination of wit, craft and a bit of off the wall imagination.

…your motivation?

  • I began introducing paper cut-outs into my photography when I was exploring new ways to photograph some of the most commonly photographed locations in London. It started as a fun hobby that I did to entertain myself and my small Instagram following, but then my audience grew and it led onto opportunities for travel and to take my style to new places.

…your expectations for #RoadToMA17X?

  • Road tripping around America is bucket list stuff, so I’m excited about just the idea driving over long roads that disappear into the horizon. Everything else will be a bonus.

…your definition of Challenging Your Perspective?

  • Is about finding a way to see things differently. That process requires a lot of observation and patience.

What…

…does a creative challenge mean to you?

  • It’s one that you can’t get off your mind until you figure out a solution to it. Nothing beats the rush you get when you finally find that solution.

…experiences have you made with road trips before?

  • My only road trip experiences in the USA so far have been on Greyhound buses. I’m keeping my fingers crossed this road trip will be just a bit better!

Guten Tag, Thomas Kakareko!

Describe…

…yourself using three attributes?

  • Creative, Spontaneous, Dynamic.

…your creative style?

  • Atmospheric pictures, which I emphasise with special colour accents, whereby I prefer my hometown Berlin. 😉

…your motivation?

  • I would like to inspire my followers with my shots and make them want to get out there and become active themselves.

…your expectations for #RoadToMAX17?

  • I am looking forward to sharing my experiences and photography with different audiences.

…your definition of Challenging Your Perspective?

  • Trying something new is always exciting and I am happy to accept the challenge. Especially the colouring of the pictures will be interesting because I use more muted and less colourful or bright colours. In the Californian sun, I will try to break out of my current style and I’m already looking forward to the results.

What…

…does a creative challenge mean to you?

  • It means to grow with the tasks and to leave your own comfort zone. It is, of course, difficult to do this on platforms like Instagram, but as a photographer I always try to create new motives and images – even if they may never find their way into the public eye.

…experiences have you made with road trips before?

  • Up to now I have only been on a road trip through my homeland of Poland. The trip through California, Arizona, Utah and Nevada will be a great new experience. I have been to Las Vegas once but have never visited any other places besides.
