CCP asks Gergo Rugli the deep questions his craft

1. What gets you out of bed every day?

My addiction to sunrises.

2. Who is the photographer that has inspired you the most?

Bence Mate

3. What current camera are you shooting with?

Nikon D850

4. When you are on a shoot do you play music? What other essential items do you have with you for a successful session?

Most of the time I shoot from the water but when I shoot from shore I love listening to my favourite playlist.

5. In the digital world how important is the print?

I think prints are very important in the digital world as nowadays every platform is flooded with digital images generally viewed on a small screen of a mobile phone. Every device has its own settings and displays the image in a different way. People flick through their social media accounts quickly and don’t spend too much time immersing themes in the image. However, presenting an image in a tangible form transforms a digital file into an artwork. It gives life to the photograph and displays it in the same way as the artist imagined it.

6. B/W - Colour - Analogue - Digital.

Put these words in your order of preference and tell us why.

Digital – When you shoot on digital devices, you enjoy a wide array of conveniences that traditional film cannot offer. Some of these are, the option to instantly review photos. Easily transferable files. The number of photos that you can take during a session and the ease of editing

Colour – Colours are a very powerful mood-enhancing tool. By using them correctly, they can give that little bit of extra that is essential for a great image.

B/W – I like black and white photography. Some of my all-time favourite images are B&W. However I love sunsets and sunrises which fill the photograph with vibrant colours therefore most of my images are coloured.

Analogue – I don’t have too much experience with analogue photography as I started my photography journey with a digital camera.

7. Have you exhibited your work, and other than the print, how important was the framing process to you?

I had a couple of smaller exhibitions.

Framing is important as it has to reflect the same quality as the image and the print. A poor-quality frame can ruin the whole artwork.

8. What defines a great image?

For me great image that delivers emotion and takes the viewer to a different world.

Also, it is very important the perfect technical details (focus, exposure, lack of distraction, minimal noise etc).

9. What is your favourite photo that you have taken? Why?

My favourite image is the “Dance of the Luderick” which is a photograph of a clear breaking wave with a large school of luderick fish in the middle of the wave.

I love this image because of its uniqueness. I was super lucky. And it was very difficult to capture this photo. I’ve never witnessed any similar event before and since then. You can read the full story of this photograph on my website:

10. What is the best photography advice you have been given? Tell us by who if you can or want to?

Shoot shoot shoot

11. When you are not taking photos, what are you doing?

I love reading, travelling and exercising alongside the beach. Also, I run a small gardening business.
