We have another winner. This month’s winner is a local NY guy.  He’s a photo editor by day and a great photographer the rest of the time.  “I’m one of those people that always has a camera on me… I’m always looking for photos. I’m always looking for moments in life.”

Michael Bocchieri ( claims this beautiful shot was just by chance.  But the quality of composition and execution of this image is far from an accident.  Michael has worked in the darkroom processing black and white photo prints in his college days. The smell of the baryta layer in ILFORD GALERIE Gold Fibre Silk reminds him of his days spent working in a darkroom.  And he still shoots film, in fact, a lot of film!

But Bocchieri is anything but haphazard about his printing. He’s serious. He’s demanding. And he loves ILFORD GALERIE Smooth Pearl and Gold Fibre Silk.  Have a look at this short video of Michael talking about this shot and what he thinks of ILFORD GALERIE Gold Fibre Silk inkjet photo paper.
