Annie Leibovitz Puts Her Massive NYC Property on the Market for a Cool $33 Million

Annie Leibovitz Puts Her Massive NYC Property on the Market for a Cool $33 Million

Annie Leibovitz, who got her start with Rolling Stone Magazine and is more recently one of the most sought-after commercial photographers, is asking $33 million for a massive 10,202-square-foot property in NYC. In 2007, Leibovitz put her entire work (and future work) up as collateral for a $24 million loan to help pay off some of her debt.

Apple and Google Jointly Bid on Kodak's Massive Patent Library?

Apple and Google Jointly Bid on Kodak's Massive Patent Library?

According to Bloomberg, famous tech rivals Apple and Google have teamed up to offer $500 million for Kodak's roughly 1,100 photo-related patents.

Is Photography Dead: An Infographic History of Photography

Is Photography Dead: An Infographic History of Photography

I'm not sure how valid the question is. Isn't it obvious...? Photography is more alive than ever. But this little graphic story gets to that point. For those interested in some of photography's most humble beginnings and boldest moves forward, or to see how much you really know, check out Overgram's infographic about the invention of the photograph and its transition from analogue to digital to everywhere...

Mirrorless Camera Roundup: So Who's the Best?

Mirrorless Camera Roundup: So Who's the Best?

Fstoppers Mirrorless Month really got me rethinking the entire small-camera strategy. I’m normally someone who doesn’t mind lugging a camera mounted to an 18th-century cannon, so long as it can take better photographs than the thing before it. But holding so many small cameras every day gets me thinking, is there another, better way to do this? And if so, what’s the best...?
