The Candid Frame
Though he enjoys playing with the latest toys of the trade as much as the next photographer, Ibarionex Perello's love of the art stems from its ability to transform the mundane into the remarkable. After years of writing instructional articles and technical reviews, Perello kicked off his podcast, The Candid Frame, to interview fellow photographers and place a finger on the creative—rather than the mechanical—pulse of the art. In the broadcast's five-year history, Perello has interviewed such stars of the field as Gerd Ludwig of National Geographic, William George Wadman of Time, Bill Frakes of Sports Illustrated, and the Hubble Telescope. Besides his hands-on broadcasts on the state of the art, Perello is a notable instructor of photography, both at his own workshops across Southern California and as an adjunct professor at the Art Center College of Design.
