Alright, just when I thought he couldn’t do anything more amazing, he proves me wrong, way wrong. If you have seen any sort of sports portraits, they usually do something different then your normal portrait. Adding cool lighting effects, lots of post work ect, not Wyn. His story for this shoot is a must read and great advice for anyone wanting to blow away their competition in their town. The way Wyn went about getting this all organized, shot, and edited is a pure masterpiece. [more]
Earlier today we posted this video of an Eagle lifting a baby in the park, and it started a massive debate whether its real or not. Now we have the answer: its FAKE. Check out this BTS video showing how 4 animation students from Montreal created this viral video. Did you get it right?
Youtube put together a tribute video where the biggest viral sensations of 2012 were invited to star in a mash-up of culturally defining moments from the year, directed by Peter Furia. Can you spot all the references? We’ve also got the BTS, so check that out once you’ve had a good laugh. [more]
I have been following Luke Schneider‘s work for quite some time and it just keeps getting better and better. He has a nack for fashion photography and it clearly shows. I decided to find out a bit about him and what his goals are for the future and current project. He is still in college so he has quite a bit of time ahead of him to achieve his goals. From the looks of it, he is well on his way there. [more]
In a recent 60 Minutes special, CBS Reporter Lara Logan spent time with Dereck and Beverly Joubert in Southern Africa. The Jouberts have been shooting images and video of the wildlife there, for over 30 years. They have produced countless amazing images and have even created documentary films from the content they captured. Embedded video inside. [more]
I love 24 and 48 hour film contests where teams are given a short amount of time and often a budget limit to shoot, edit and deliver short films that go head to head with eachother at the judges table. “The Girl Is Mime” was created for London’s 48 Hour Film Project in 2010 (which it won) and is directed by Tim Bunn, starring Martin Freeman. Also, here is a BTS video, ENJOY!
A few days ago I received an email from Zach stating that he had been following my work for some time and that he had attended Brooks institute of Photography in Ventura CA with my brother quite some time ago. He had this really cool idea for a photography project with visitors that came through his apartment. Those visitors included friends, family, random roommates friends. Literally anyone that came through his apartment he got to sit down and get a shot of them in front of a giant chalk board. It was a great idea and executed very well. [more]
The guys over PHLEARN have a lot of cool content, and this is their most recent. The original idea for this photo shoot was inspired by childhood, drawing on references from stories such as “Where the Wild Things Are” by Maurice Sendak and the classic comic strip “Calvin and Hobbes.” The result is a playful look at the imagination of a child.

The incredibly young and talented, Joey L. has released a new documentary that was shot while shooting his intimate series of photos, ‘Holy Men’. Set in the breathtaking backdrop of India, the documentary filmed by Cale Glendening shows Joey while at work with his assistant Ryan, but more importantly proves that capturing an amazing portrait isn’t just about the latest gear or technique, but truly the subject.
French photog, Philippe Echaroux, has really gone above and beyond with his guerrilla style street portraits. In this video he hits the streets with 4 crew members and made this short video of how he approaches strangers, gives them a quick description of what he’s doing. If they want to take part, Philippe then signals his crew and they very quickly style the subject, light them and even throw up a nice background on a stick. The images turn out really nice, and I would love to see more people thinking bigger and more outside the box like, Mr. Echaroux, when it comes to street shots. Enjoy! [more]
We featured Elena Jasic on here last month, and this month she is back with this awesome tutorial on how to add freckles in post to your photos. Elena is a young and upcoming fashion and beauty photographer from Philadelphia. The photo in this tutorial is from Chris Zupo. You can also find the brush used in this tutorial here. If you guys try this technique out, share a link to it with us in the comments on this post!
With a well thought out idea and fantastic execution, Max Riche managed to win several awards with this photo series. The concept was to capture the progression of amateur’s journey into professional athleticism in one photo. He was thoughtful enough to video several of his shoots and explain the process that led to these well recognized photos.
How many times have you seen an amazing timelapse project, and wondered where exactly the photographer was when they recorded their exposures? Or maybe you wondered what they had to do to get to such an amazing vantage point? Sean Goebel created his timelapse film “Epochs” and documented the location and equipment details for most scenes. Sean told me some about his background, and links to his work and shot setups are also inside. [more]
I was recently hired by the team over at TheRealMach5.com to shoot new marketing images of the “the only officially licensed Mach 5 in the world that was built to the Speed Racer cartoon Mach 5 specifications”. As you can see from the video, it was a hot hot day. I was probably suffering from heat stroke and a wicked farmer’s tan by the end of the day, but I got to tear around in the Mach 5 on Florida back roads after the shoot (thankfully she’s street legal if you don’t drive with the spinning saw blades on it haha), so it was completely worth it.
