Karl Taylor has been a professional Photographer for over 20 years and has travelled the globe on assignments for some of the world’s most successful companies.
Unusually for an advertising & commercial photographer Karl is what he calls ‘multi-disciplined’. Having started his career in photojournalism he is comfortable and actively enjoys shooting across a range of genres. Karl’s ethos is that ‘variety is the spice of life’ and that the visual philosophies for creating effective images are universal.
Karl became involved in the photography training market several years ago after hosting lectures in photography and finding he had a knack for explaining the subject in an entertaining and understandable way. Since then Karl has become very passionate about his Masterclass Training Series and is keen to demonstrate professional but achievable photography techniques in the simplest way possible. As well as presenting and shooting he writes the scripts, formulates the ideas and formats the programmes and training.
In the following interview (part 1) you get a good opportunity to learn from Karl, how light is important and how broncolor gear supports his creative ideas and gives him the freedom to develop his vision. Karl is a very popular instructor with a huge community of followers. His natural but detailed way of explaining light, photography and his love for broncolor made him the natural choice for broncolor to start a long-term partnership with Karl.

Karl’s remarkable understanding of photography and light coupled with his ability to impart knowledge motivates and encourages audiences. This formula matches and supplements perfectly broncolor’s own programme of teaching light.
Urs Recher and Nadia Winzenried from broncolor are also well known ‘light’ instructors, travelling the world for more then 15 years educating photographers. Their knowledge about lighting can be followed through the ‘How To’ program on our website www.broncolor.com. Nearly every week we develop new ‘How To’ examples. If you follow us on facebook, you will always be notified when a new ‘How To’ is published.
Karl was involved in the launch of the ‘How To’ project, and with Urs Recher created some great live How To examples. The ‘How To’ examples were very well-received by the public and photographers are delighted by the variety of ‘How To’ examples available. What is How To? Check out our previous Blog post “broncolor’s educational tool How To”.
