Larger Formats with Stevan Tontic

Joining me today is Stevan Tontic.

Tell us a bit about yourself and your photography.
From Bosnia, Sarajevo. Lives in the Chicago area.

Briefly describe two or three locations you recently traveled too.
I travel for work. So I get to go to lots of places that most wouldn’t be able to see. Both in the US and internationally. Various suppliers, such as in China.
Virginia as well.
Went to S. Dakota last year. Did some photography in the Black Hills area. And an old ghost town.
China: Shanghai, a recent favorite was in the bundt area of Shanghai. Was raining, lots of great reflections. http://www.stevantontich.com/blog/2018/5/23/china-in-spring-2018
