You can see an extensive BOOK PREVIEW HERE: and more details on our sites &

A book on fine art B&W photography with a focus on architectural fine art and long exposure photography (eBook format).
Everything about the artistic side, the practical side, the philosophical side but also the business and financial side of photography, plus… the secret to success by Julia Anna Gospodarou and Joel Tjintjelaar.
Our B&W processing methods, our long exposure methods and workflows analyzed in depth with examples and extensive hands-on explanations, extended analysis of our award-winning images, plus the theoretical base for what we do so you don't just apply a method, but start creating your own B&W (en)Visionography right away.
More than 400 pages of knowledge from our extensive experience as fine art photographers and from the long years of studying art, architecture and everything related to image representation.
Tens of images from our portfolio, recent and from the archives dating even more than 10 years ago, explained and analyzed in a simple and clear way.

A book written in simple English, so every lover of photography with a medium knowledge of the language, regardless where they are, can easily understand and use the information the moment they read it. As they say, great ideas don't need complicated words. We totally agree.


“Outside of Ansel Adams’ Basic Photo Series, From Basic to Fine Art, by Joel Tjintjelaar and Julia Anna Gospodarou, is the best book on B&W photography written in the last 40 years.” (…) “The importance of the book is reached in Julia’s and Joel’s abilities to blend the practice of classical form and content in vision and technique, so that Form is Content. While others claim to have achieved this state of aesthetic grace, this is the first time I have seen it accomplished with great skill and with a brilliant explanation of how to get there.” (…) “ I consider Julia’s (en)Visionography and Photography Drawing the most important innovation in B&W photography since the invention of the Zone System.”
- George DeWolfe (Luminous Landscape)

“In today’s humankind ever-increasing urge for homogenization and uniformity, Joel and Julia stand out. Joel is the modern equivalent of what Ansel Adams did for black & white photography in the film era, always exploring new horizons, new techniques, and new frontiers to explore. Julia Anna, on the other hand, is the chimera of Imogen Cunningham and Vivian Maier, merging one of the sharpest eyes in the art world with the artistic flair to make every image canvas come alive."
- Dr. Charles Paul Azzopardi

“I have now finished reading the book from beginning to end. For anyone who is both passionate and willing to understand what Fine Art Black and White Photography is all about, this book in an absolute must buy in my opinion. The way in which both Joel and Julia explain everything is easy to follow and with great detail. Not only do they explain their personal vision but also share some of their secrets in what it takes to produce some of the best Fine Art Architecture images around today. I have been making Black and White photographs for a few years and I have learnt so much from these two photographers especially as they explain how to approach architecture, understanding the light and reaching out for a better composition. If architecture is not your thing but long exposure photography in general is, Joel and Julia explain everything there is to know about the subject including some of the pitfalls to watch out for. All in all, this is the one book which i will reach for time and time again for both interesting reading and also as a great reference source.”
- Ian Barber

"I am quite certain that for all black and white photographers at least, that this epic new publication will rest comfortably alongside the Bruce Barnbaum bible ("Art of Photography"). Barnbaum managed to straddle the old wet and analogue process of photography, and the new, digital age. He gave us an insight into the art of the process, whether A or D, and his ideas are still relevant today. Gospodarou and Tjintjelaar have finally given B&W photography a massive – not to say transcending – push into the digital age! (…) amazing – not to say epic – book, which not only is a great read – especially with all its practical advice - but is a ‘good book’ as well: it will be read, and cherished, for many years to come."
