Photographer: Janko Dragovic

Speciality: generalist

Biography: Janko is a 28-year-old photographer from Perth. He is also a graphic designer, music producer and DJ. When not running the family design and print business or producing and DJ-ing as part of the Progress Inn duo, he captures images of wide-ranging subjects. From landscapes to long exposures, macro to portraits and anything else in between, his approach is to be open to the world around him and capture it all.

Working as a graphic designer means that Janko's approach to photography is perhaps slightly different than traditional photographers. He is not afraid to use advanced post-processing techniques to get his initial RAW images to look like the photographs he envisages. Sometimes the photos are just the building blocks for something bigger, such as his collages. Even though photography is not his primary career, Janko regularly takes on commercial projects as well, such as real estate/architecture, product photography, events and studio work.

Equipment: Nikon D90, Nikon N80 with battery grip, Panasonic Lumix LX5, Nikon 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6, Nikon 50mm f/1.8, Nikon 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5, Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6, Tamron 90mm f/2.8 macro, Tokina 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 fisheye, Manfrotto 190XPROB tripod with 496RC2 head, Nissin Di866 and Yongnuo YN560 flashes, Cactus V4 wireless flash trigger with two receivers, IR remote, cable release, various filters and light diffusing accessories, Lightroom 3, Photoshop CS5, Photomatix Pro 3.

Janko, in my opinion, I think you should skip the Nikon and go straight to the Hasselblad.
