About BWVision

BWVISION is a website founded in 2009 by Joel Tjintjelaar and focused on understanding (fine) art and pioneering craftsmanship in black and white photography. Joel is doing this mainly through his artwork and educational writings but certainly also through his products varying from video tutorials to innovative B&W photo-editing software

Our Vision

Quality and Authenticity

We educate, promote and pioneer craftsmanship in Black and White and Fine Art photography by critically analyzing the many rules, and also myths, surrounding photography and art and, where needed, deconstructing those principles and reconstructing new principles relevant to fine art photography.

Furthermore, we believe authenticity forms the foundation of artistic creativity. From this notion follows that it is important to infuse everything we create, from artwork to tutorials and software with a uniquely identifiable part of ourselves and our experience.

Therefore we aim to refine concepts, and sometimes (re)define concepts in our artwork, products, and our educational writings, but we will never rehash commonplaces.

Quality in our blog posts, tutorials, products, artwork, and last but not least the services we provide, is the leading principle we live by. A quality that is characterized by the pursuit of authenticity and the passion for what we love to do.
