Learning the technical side of photography is very important, but learning what to photograph is just as important. Photo Kibitz is about understanding photography by chatting with photographers and people that have an interest in photography. We’ll get to know them, their work and the work of others. It’s an opportunity for us to learn about the people behind the camera, their ideas, their inspirations, the people they admire and what happens after the shutter is pressed.

Look up, look way up - Aerial Photographer Louis Helbig
Some photographers wish they could shoot from a higher vantage point. Aerial photographer Louis Helbig does. 1000 feet higher - from the cockpit of his airplane.
To some operating the controls of a camera and composing an image could be challenging enough. Not for Louis, we chat about how he manages to juggle the photography side and the flying side of his work.
Photography was not Louis’ first calling. He was a competitive athlete and his education would have meant a promising career in foreign service with the government and we discuss what led to his decision to change course and become a fine art photographer.
Louis is passionate about his work and he is equally passionate about using his work as a starting point for an open dialogue.
