Anatomy of a Personal Project with Phillipp Scholz Rittermann

It’s not if creative block will strike, just when. So, how does one get unstuck? Keep shooting they say… No assignments? Shoot for yourself!

Join APA San Diego for the first of a series: The Anatomy of a Personal Project – and learn how to rekindle the spark that got you into this racket in the first place.

Philipp will share personal work, strategies to overcome the demons of self-doubt induced inertia, and how to get back out into the world.

About Philipp:

Temporal and spatial themes lie at the heart of Rittermann’s photographic practice. His imagery encompasses nocturnal scenes of industry, pristine landscape, and most recently, installations of large-scale transparencies, which surround the viewer.

Born and raised in Lima, Perú, Rittermann lived in Germany and Spain 
before immigrating to the United States in the early ’80s. His work is held in over one hundred public private, and corporate collections, including MoMA, NY, SFMoMA, CA, MFA, TX, Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris, France, and many others.

Rittermann has been teaching photography for over thirty years in the USA and abroad. He exhibits in national, and international venues, and was honored with a mid-career survey at the Museum of Photographic Arts San Diego, which published the monograph Navigating by Light. In 2011, the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego exhibited large-scale works from Emperor’s River, a photographic project he conducted in China. Emperor’s River has traveled to several museums across the country.

MEET. Weston Fuller

WORKBOOK - Spring 2018 Spread - Weston Fuller© Weston Fuller

Meet photographer, San Diego local and APASD member, Weston Fuller

Who are you following on Instagram?
Erik Almas (@erikalmas). Kevin Winzeler (@kevinwinzelerphoto), Cade Martine (@cademartinephoto), Art Streiber (@aspictures), Chris Gordaneer (@cgordaneer), Tim Tadder (@timtadder), Chris Clor (@chrisclor1), Matt Sartain (@matty_sartain), Matt Carr (@themattcarr)

What type of music do you listen to when you’re shooting? 
I don’t have one genre that I stick to all the time but lately I’ve been bouncing back and forth between alternative bluegrass and classic rock.

Who were your biggest influencers?
Erik Almas for all around style, composites and narrative, Gregory Crewdson for lighting and narrative, Chris Jordan for meaning and intent, Edward Weston for striving for perfection and passion, plus he has a cool name, Arnold Friberg for defining a moment and Norman Rockwell for moments and humor.

What were you doing before you became a Photographer?
Property Management & Hotel Marketing.

When were you first introduced to Photography?
High School, would skip other classes to spend time in the dark room, but after High School couldn’t maintain a personal darkroom so it became a minimal pastime. When digital photography came around I bought a Nikon D40 kit. I think I paid around $1000 for the kit when it first came out, now I think you can buy it for around $100.

If you weren’t a Photographer, what would you be doing? 
Something in advertising and marketing maybe. If not that, a lawyer?

What do you do when you get stuck? 
Playing with my kids, they make me laugh and help me focus on what’s important. Plus kids have the greatest imaginations, if I could only create what they were thinking half the time. Road trips and taking pictures of anything and everything helps me clear my mind and start thinking of what I want to create and not just what I can take pictures of.

What is your favorite podcast?
The Last Picture (a couple of local San Diego photography friends just started it). I like it because it focuses on the photographer and the stories behind the images, which is always of interest to.

What is your favorite curse word? 
I have three kids, so I don’t curse (wink, wink)

What is your best marketing advice for your peers?
Define and know your target audience and don’t wait to start marketing yourself. Market what you have to those who want to see it.

What advice would you give to yourself if you could go back 10 years? 20 years?
Start creating the images you want to be remembered for.
