INTERVIEW: Bragi Ingibergsson - BRIN
Bragi Ingibergsson
In our search for great photographers we recently discovered one on Iceland. We´re proud to present you Bragi Ingibergsson – BRIN, the latest winner of the ePix Grant Award!
 
Born in 1961, married to Stefania, with two grown up daughters, serving as a Lutheran church minister, Bragi has been an amateur photographer for nearly 45 years. He recently won The Best Photo Award at GuruShots Cover Photo Challenge, sponsored by ePixEditions. This automatically won him the 2018 ePix Editions Grant for the ePix Calendar feature.
 
It so happens that we also noticed Bragi several months earlier when he was featured in the Daily Mail (www.dailymail.co.uk). We thought we should contact him back then, but have completely forgotten about that until he won the Gurushots contest.
 
Luckilly, Bragi is with us now. Here is what he told us about himself and his work in a brief interview we had.
 
ePixEditions:
We can see the great work you´re doing today, but please tell us a bit how it all started.
 
Bragi Ingibergsson:
My interest in photography started when I got my first camera twelve years old as a Christmas present from my parents. So I have been taking photos ever since, for 45 years now.

 
ePixEditions:
What sort of photography inspires you most?
 
Bragi Ingibergsson:
I like landscape and nature. I am also doing lots of photos of old abandoned houses and things with stories. But going out into the nature with my camera is a kind of spiritual and physical renewal for me. I love photographing horses and it is very special and it can be very difficult to get good photos of them, at least photos that stand out, so it can take a long time in each session and a lot of patience.

 
ePixEditions:
Landscape actually got you the GuruShots Award, but you chose the horses for your ePix Calendar?
 
Bragi Ingibergsson:
I have loved horses and photographing them since I was a kid; and every time it is a great challenge and experience for me. Many years ago I started to work with more than one horse, most often two horses and sometimes more, to get some different photos of their interplay together.

 
ePixEditions:
Can you name any photographer that may have inspired you the most in your work?
 
Bragi Ingibergsson:
I don‘t know if I can name the first artist that inspired me, but I can say that I have for a long time loved Ansel Adams‘ work of photography and it was a great experience for me to see his work in an exhibition in Boston thirteen years ago.

 
ePixEditions:
What sort of projects would you really enjoy doing?
 
Bragi Ingibergsson:
I have taken some assignments through the years, but don‘t do much of it, but my dream assignment would be to go on Safari in Africa to photograph in the wild.

 
ePixEditions:
Please tell us something about your workflow.
 
Bragi Ingibergsson:
In my post processing work I mainly use PhotoShop – and in most cases my work is limited to improvements in light, colors and contrast. And I use the tools to get the final touch of an image which interprets the best my experience of the moment and of the place where and when the photo was taken. If I have to exaggerate a bit I do so to get that result.
 
The subjects are various and I think it’s good to consider in the working process what is most appropriate in the light of the subject in each case. If I am working with colors I have to consider if strong colors are the best choice or if maybe soft colors are more appropriate - and in some cases they could mix well together. In my post processing I emphasize mostly on the colors - it is my intention to use the colors to achieve and describe what I was feeling at the moment when I took the photo.

 
ePixEditions:
And finally, while this may not be as important as some people think, as I´m sure you could do a great work with just any camera in your hands, people are often interested in hearing what sort of gear photographers like you use in their work?
 
Bragi Ingibergsson:
I use Canon equipment. I have a Canon EOS 5D Mark III and also a small Canon EOS Rebel SL1. My lenses are Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L USM II, Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM, Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM II and Tamron 16-300mm. And I also have a Canon Extender EF 2x II.

 
ePixEditions:
Thank you for sharing all this with us, and even more, thank you for publishing your wonderful Icelandic Horses ePix Calendar! We´re looking forward to seeing more of your work here soon!
 
We just found out that Bragi was also featured in New York Post. Congratulations!
