Interview with ON1 Guru Jim Welninski

Recently we sat down with Jim Welninski of Altered Space Photography, and newly minted ON1 Guru. His story is both fascinating and inspiring and we’re so excited to share it with you. Jim has always been an artist. From drawing, to video, and now photography, he considers himself an artist who uses a camera. You will simply love his unique and amazing imagery. 

Who is Jim Welninski?

I’ve been an artist my entire life. I began drawing at a very early age and kept it up until I realized I wasn’t very good at it. Music became the center of my life, and that’s how it was for a very long time. I knocked around in a few bands and then went into the technical side of the business as a recording engineer around 1980.
