Mediocrity

Mediocrity – that’s the first word that I have on my mind when I think of the Austrian phtography community. I’m not referring to the online but real community – those guys who seem to represent a certain standard. Whatever. http://www.manfredbaumann.com – fine example of an Austrian Fine Art Photographer. Whatever – I’ve been just thinking a bit. Won’t happen again. And don’t tell me to do better: I’m not allowed to do.

Thanks Austria.

    Mediocre? Even before I see his website and the headline international star photogarpher, I know this guy is a joke. It’s not even mediocre, it is lame and a total disrespect to the medium.

    It’s the same all over the world isn’t it?
    The most respected kinds in India are the mediocre fashion photographers, in fact, a career in photography is synonymous with that.
    The very concept of fine art photography has been lost through the years.

    Everyone’s a dslr toting, 70-300 shooting professional photographer.

    ja baumann wird ja immer so als “der” celebrity und fashion fotograf gehandhabt.. am besten sind seine red carpet crops.. die sind echt meisterklasse!

    I wouldn’t say his photographs are bad..its just, yeah..they’re not really exciting. Something really dull about his celebrity portraits.

    Aber die heute sagt doch, dass er so toll ist!

    Außerdem kommt angeblich irgendwann jetzt die Cuddy von Dr. House vor seine Linse

    He got music on his website and his girl is pretty hot. Nice. Is this guy really famous in austria ? Those “Travel” shots are so uninspiring… wow. I’m also pretty amazed how some mediocre photographers can shot so much “celebs” by taking so bad pics of them since years. Amazing.
