This Video Series Has Photographers Answering Questions with Their Photos Instead of Words

The Cooperative of Photography, a photography apparel manufacturer and community-focused online mag, produced a cool new photography series where they asked creative photographers questions and the answer come only in the form of images instead of words.

This visual question and answer series, kicks off with Swiss photographer and digital artist John Wilhelm. Even though Wilhelm grew up in an environment of cameras, magazines, lenses, self-made camera bags, darkrooms, and funny weddings he never really took to photography until the age of the digital camera. But it was Photoshop that finally made photography a passion. 

"I love bringing my fantasy to life with the help of my own images, Photoshop and 3D Software. Due to the fact that it's more an obsession than plain passion I call myself a photoholic."

Wow, this is one of the best articles I’ve seen on Fstoppers.
I love it, I wonder how long it took to compile this work and where did the idea come from?
I’m following!

That is an amazing idea! And John Wilhelm did a great job!

I've been following John for a few years now and watched as his work, and his family, grow. He's fantastic! This is a guy who truly loves doing what he does.
