My name is Ilan Burla. I am 45 years old and live in Israel. Im working as a CG animator in a post production company. Im also a father of 3 young kids. All of my spare time is dedicated to photography.
My journey begun as my first kid was born and I bought my first camera. Soon I realized what a powerful tool it is and a amazing way to express myself. As I was developing as a photographer I realized that street photography for me is the most enjoyable and intriguing. . .
I love the streets, the relationship with the environment, the pets, the sounds the smells. There are so many and all kinds of stories to tell. At almost any given moment and I want to do it as much as I can.
Inspiration is everywhere. There are so many great street photographers today that I enjoy watching their work. Martin Parr is my greatest inspiration! From the moment i discovered his work, I can't stop admire him.
Photography for me is pure fun. I do it with love and passion. The moment when I go out to the street with the camera in my hand is a moment of joy and anticipation.
like using different kinds of techniques, shooting with flash, long exposures, freezing the action. Each day brings own surprises, good or bad. The one thing I am trying to do most of the time is to get close as I can to the scene. I feel that way is the most effective and fascinating and it helps the viewer connect.
I hope I will have the ability to do it all my life.
