Artist’s Statement

“Very early on I realized that photography for me was using the light available from the sun. Flash and artificial lights, prevalent in photojournalism at the time didn’t interest me. The appeal of available lighting and B&W printing has never waned for me, even though for many years this was not commercially popular or necessarily profitable. Now, black and white photographs using natural light fill the editorial and advertising pages of leading publications in all fields. I strive to create vital, direct pictures of people and places, which immediately grab the eye of the viewer. My honest and personable approach produces photographs that hold the viewer’s attention and become objects of pride and satisfaction.”

— Natural Light Photography — Fine Art Photographs: 1967 through the present.

Jim Stipovich lives in Northern California, and works as a freelance and wedding photographer. His fine art images are represented here at Stipovich.com and are organized in galleries: Landscapes, Nudes and Fashion, with more to come including Vintage Music. All of these images are produced from medium format cameras (Hasselblad & Rolleiflex), and all black & white film and prints are hand processed by Jim in his private darkroom. These artworks are collected from a lifetime of photo shoots. Today Jim has has completely re-invested himself in his art. The ongoing challenge of sifting through thousands of pages of negatives has been personally rewarding. Here is an ongoing representation of this work.
