Ralf Czogallik Expert Insight

The NineDots awards take place every other month and are judged by photographers from around the world. At NineDots we believe in awards as a fuel for continual improvement rather than being purely for peer recognition or creating hierarchy, so our judges provide their expert insight into the judging process and offer feedback on the images entered through these regular ‘expert insight’ pieces. This helps everyone improve their craft – those who entered and those who didn’t, by getting advice from photographers at the top of the industry around the world.

In this video, Netherlands and destination wedding photographer Ralf Czogallik gives us his expert judges insight while judging the NineDots awards, with some absolutely golden nuggets throughout offering advice on those images which he didn’t vote for, as well as reasons for the ones he did.
