The Interview Series: Ten Questions With Olaf Sztaba | Ian MacDonald

Welcome to the first interview in this series, featuring the work of photographers who inspire me.  The impetus for this series came last year when I watched a few artists step on each other to climb the industry ladder.  Honestly, it saddened me as we all have so much we can learn from each other.  This makes us all better, and raises the quality of the art we create and share.   I have been fortunate to have great success in my life in several industries, and my greatest successes have always come as a result of collaboration and networking.  I have learned something from every artist I hope to feature on this site, and if I can share their work with a few new people I’ll count that as a huge win. For this inaugural interview I am featuring the work of Olaf Sztaba, a fellow Vancouver based photographer.  I first found Olaf’s work two years ago, and was immediately caught by the beauty created in his images.  Olaf has a well developed  eye for light and composition.  Look at the image at the top of this post:  The bold light, those clouds, the colours, the composition, that lone tree… there is so much happening in that image……
