PCN Photographer Awards WinnerNovember 16, 2011
Congratulation to Helmut Hirler the winner of the PCN Photographer Awards 2011
A little bit about our Winner
After finishing my 3 years apprenticeship as a photographer in 1973 I was working as a fashion and advertising photographer. In 1979 I made the master degree in photography and started to work as a tutor in the Photo Department of a vocational training school in Germany, which I left after 30 years. Now I live and work in New Zealand and run a gallery together with my partner in Woodville.
The main part of my private work was always B&W Photography and there in special B&W Infrared Photography. Since two decades I work with my 6x17cm Technorama cameras and take my landscape photographs worldwide. I still work on film and develop my negatives and my silver gelatine prints by myself. Meanwhile I published many books and calendars and part of my work goes to galleries or collectors all over the world.
