I have never personally met Mike, however I can't seem to get away from him. He definitely has some amazing shots that stand out from the rest of the crowd. I know Mike through a Facebook group called CREATIVOS, which is a group for photographers looking to share tips, tricks, and images and grow within the industry. I keep seeing his work pop up and can't take my eyes away from it.
I love when I run across landscape photography that just draws you in and almost makes you feel like you're there at the location. Staring at the images as if you were actually looking at the sunset or the forest. Either way, Alonso Díaz's work does that for me. The colors, locations, exposures bring it all together in a perfect, stunning way.
I have been following Noah's work for some time now and have fell in love with every shot he has ever put up. His work is absolutely incredible and I feel everyone should take a look at this. I decided to do a quick interview with him to get to know him a little bit more.
"In A New Light" is non-profit that uses nature photography to empower, teach, guide, and ultimately change the lives of it's students- students whose background often includes struggling in school, abusive homes, and general hopelessness. Both the photos captured and stories told are simply inspiring. Read on for an interview with Ben Thwaits, pro photographer turned teacher for IANL, and to see some of the students' impressive work. A Kickstarter to publish a photobook along with stories of the students is in the making as well.
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.
Vinny Picardi is a successful fine art and advertising photographer based in Los Angeles, CA, who has exhibited work all over the country and around the world. I recently came across Vinny's work and I have to say that I'm a pretty big fan, so I thought it would be interesting to share not only just a photo series with our readers, but also to take some time to ask a few questions to get inside the head of a successful fine art photographer.

This photo shoot is for writer, Robert L. Harding's novel titled, Death of the Wayang.
Here we are, back again with another young, incredible artist. Vilde Indrehus is a 17 year old photographer from Norway. I know this whole "Instagram" look has been done over and over yet there is just something about all these shots that gets me. The composition, DOF, ideas, everything just comes together so nicely. Its so nice to see young talent popping up. Gives me some hope for the future generations.
I believe that if a photographer wants to grow in their craft one of the best exercises they can do is pick a particular subject and focus on all the different ways to shoot it. While out in North Carolina I met Stephen Wilfong, a photographer there that over the course of 7 years pushed his creative boundaries to shoot every clock he could find in New York City.
I've never been one to take landscape pictures. I just don't like any that I take. I can't seem to get the composition right or lighting. I am a portrait photographer. It's what I do. However, I greatly appreciate photographers who are able to capture the true beauty of a certain location. Photographers, like Fakrul, are able to do just that. The perfect exposure, bringing out details I would never have noticed had I been the one to take the shot.
So many times I have traveled abroad to find a fantastic location for a landscape photo, but the light is terrible or haze isn't allowing for a beautiful view. Rushed schedules don't typically lend much help for me to scout when I am in a new land, but no bother for Russian photographer, Boguslaw Strempel. This guy must be a master location scout, because he seems to know where all the gorgeous fog is and the light is brilliant in his Russian landscape shots. Enjoy!
In this trailer for the upcoming documentary "The Quest For Inspiration", there are a slew of amazing images from places filmmaker Mathieu Le Lay followed landscape Photographer Alexandre Deschaumes.
