Subway photographer for Canon Europe: Clear focus, graphic style | Nick Frank

Shoot for Canon europe - the new G7 X MKII camera

Oct 5, 2016

Munich-based industrial, architectural and corporate photographer Nick Frank takes us on a journey through the Munich subway and captures everything with the new PowerShot G7 X MKII camera .

When Canon Europe approached me in early 2016 and told me they wanted to shoot a feature with me, it felt natural to me. I've been photographing subway stations around the globe since 2010.

I have a background in advertising as an art and creative director and that's how I describe my images to others: A good advertisement needs to be simple and understandable. Advertising is essentially about removing unwanted things/objects until the essence of what you want the viewer to see/understand becomes visible. There has to be a clear focus. This is also my approach to photography. I try to concentrate on the most important parts of the image and remove anything unimportant. It's also very helpful to have a graphic background. I'm very good with shapes, textures and patterns. That's my approach.

My style is rather subjective. I don't do documentation. When I take photos, I have a clear idea of what I want the final image to look like. I do a lot of retouching. This helps me to turn this vision into reality.
