New Striptiz portrait of Peter Gedei – cave photographer

with 12 comments

Peter gedei - cave photographer

Peter Gedei is an excelent cave photographer who had really good exhibition in KC Janez Trdina. We were planning to do the portrait a month ago, but somehow we didn’t found time for it. My initial idea was that I would photograph him in a cave in a comfy chair levitating 30 cm above the chair reading National Geographic magazine. Few days later Peter suggested that we could do the portrait in a sewage canal and that he knows a sewage canal that is served for a meteoric waters to be drained out of Ljubljana into the Sava river. Matjaž Tančič was helping us and he was recording event on video. Hopefully tomorrow the film will be Youtubed. It will be hilarious because I needed to convince this two guys that the screw I screwed in the ceiling will hold a human weight. We had a lot of fun.

  2. Again and again I am fascinated by the length you take and creativity you use to create Striptiz pics! Too bad it’s doesn’t get more space in Mladina …

  3. The 2nd photo doesn’ look so rough, but still … I’ll go for the first. If it should have a comic note (with the dolphin and all), then the 2nd one is far too “mystic” and “darkish” for the effect.

  4. I think the second one depicts cave photography better (dark, mystic, pink/purplish dolphin, … 😉 ). And we can see the face. +
    The first one is a bit too bright for my taste.

  5. More i think about it, more the second one works. If only he wouldn’t point the camera towards darkness 🙂

  7. Se strinjam s Cirilom, prva bolj pali, na drugi se ga pa bolje vidi.

  9. Thanks guys! I’ll try to convince Peter to redo the shoot. We were photographing for one and a half hour, but on the end I felt bad that on the first image there is no face and second one looks a bit cheap. I mean the tube it’s badly lit.

  12. […] The beginning was hard. I was taking some pictures just to see how it looks. Miha brought with him his laptop. Initial idea was to have a laptop with his face on the floor whereas his his body would cast strong shadows on the walls. I didn’t like it. I didn’t continue in this direction because it would resemble Katja Praznik portrait and on the same time I was affraid to be similar to Samo portrait and again I didn’t want to resemble Peter Gedei portrait in a shaft. In one moment I decided to remake a feeling of primitive cave scene with a man warming beside a fire. Except instead of fire – a laptop computer. Please don’t take that literally, because it’s just my flow of ideas in development of the picture. […]
