Your Bio

Richard Janis, Photographer


Born in the days of film, I walked the Konica path, T3 in hand, primes 28, 50 and 135.
Along the way I added a Canon Elan II, Ricoh GR1s, Kiev 60 and others.
Now my workhorse is a digital Canon with a bunch of zooms.

My goal is to capture the moment.

Primarily I take pictures of people. People age and change. I think it’s important to have a record of who they were, what they were doing, in context of family, friends and their environment. Too often people measure themselves in terms of material items. My things might outlive me, but if I’m remembered, I’d rather it was for my relationships with people.

I like honesty and spontaneity.

I rarely plan pictures, give stage directions or use a flash. There are exceptions, for technical needs or humour, but generally setup pictures look artificial. The result is that my pictures look like very good snapshots.

Great snapshots?

You decide.

Richard.
