Will A.I. kill photography? A.I.-generated images are reshaping politics, international relations, journalism, and beauty standards. But what about the impact on professional photographers?
For German photographer Thomas Boenig, photography is a force that fuels his existence. Based in Nuremberg, Germany, Thomas is a freelance commercial and Leica street photographer. His clients range from Adidas, Puma, and Tesla to Universal Music.
Thomas and Helen met back in 2012 in New York City when he was doing a project for Leica Camera capturing “decisive moments” with his Leica M9. Thomas is not only talented but also genuine and authentic which comes through in his striking photography, especially his portraits.
Listen to the conversation as we discuss Thomas’s first encounter with A.I. art on MidJourney, what he sees as threats from A.I. on the photography industry, and what aspects on set can never be replaced. You’ll learn how skateboarding and his Leica rangefinder helped shape his commercial photography. We also cover his appreciation for beautiful imperfections, why he loves the craft so much, and his hopes for photography in the years to come.
Don't miss this insightful, honest, and, at times, heartwrenching conversation on the future of photography and the evolving relationship between artists and technology.
