Playboy Photographer Ales Bravnicar Discusses His Career and the Magazine's Recent Format Change [NSFW]

Late last year, Playboy magazine announced that starting this month, March 2016, the publication would no longer - simply enough - feature nudity. This announcement was immediately received as shocking, welcomed, amazing, derided or just plain hated, depending on who you asked. Curious as to the impetus behind the format change, I asked Jarmo Pohjaniemi about it when we spoke recently, and have since heard from another Playboy master lensist, Ales Bravnicar, about the matter. Bravnicar and I also discussed his phenomenal career and his upcoming retrospective in an upcoming international Playboy edition.

[NSFW] 'Nutscaping' Is a New Phenomenon That You Don't Need to Be Aware Of: Landscapes With Your Balls

In an all-time low for humankind, this one can clearly be filed under "Phenomena Against Humanity." I truly regret to inform you that, in a fit of absolute male narcissism, people are finding beautiful landscape views, dropping their pants, and positioning their cameras "just so" in order to capture the bottom of their man-junk hanging in the frame. What at first seems too obtuse to be true, slowly, photo after photo, becomes a rather gross case of human failure henceforth to forever be known as "nutscaping."

New York-Based Photographer Revolutionizes Dick Pics with High Fashion Photo Shoot

New York-Based Photographer Revolutionizes Dick Pics with High Fashion Photo Shoot

First I have to say this video contains what some will consider very graphic images and language. So if you don’t subscribe to the "laugh a little, lighten up” theory of life, like comedic photographer Soraya Doolbaz and I do, then please don’t torture yourself (or us) and just avoid this post. That being said, Soraya's lighthearted project Dicture Gallery is exactly what it sounds like. Take an erect penis, dress it to the nines (eights, sevens, sixes or fives, we don't judge here) and photograph it like you would any other high fashion shoot.

Instagrammers Fight Censorship by Photoshopping Male Nipples [NSFW?]

Instagrammers Fight Censorship by Photoshopping Male Nipples [NSFW?]

It's no secret that Instagram, and its parent company, Facebook, have some pretty old-school ToS in terms of censorship. Their policy, inconsistently policed at best, has given the boot to many otherwise tasteful images including, notably, an image by artist Ruki Kaur of a woman on her period. Now a trend is taking Instagram by storm wherein people are photoshopping male nipples over a females' nipples to stick it to the man and hopefully result in a meaningful dialog on Internet censorship.

Photographer Blake Little 'Preserves' Models in Honey [NSFW]

Photographer Blake Little 'Preserves' Models in Honey [NSFW]

For the "Preservation" project, widely acclaimed Los Angeles-based photographer Blake Little covered a variety of models in 4,500 pounds of honey. You read that right. The idea for this shoot was originally inspired by a previous session where he depicted a man as a bear eating honey. He was startled by the way that the honey gave the appearance that the man was "preserved in amber" and by how it can "distort and amplify forms."

Get Yourself Prepared To Shoot Swimwear Model Photography This Summer

Get Yourself Prepared To Shoot Swimwear Model Photography This Summer

We've had one hell of a cold, long winter this year here in North America. On top of that, I live in Houston, Texas, so this business of freezing rain in March can go die in a fire already. I enjoyed shooting moody styles outside during this extended drabness in recent months, if I'm honest. However, sunny days are coming and I couldn't happier it because summer means outdoor swimwear projects begin, which is one of my favorite styles to shoot. However, having been so bleak for so long this winter, have you gotten yourself prepped for this most popular of fashion and glamour photography seasons?

How I Create Warm Skin Tones in Glamour Photos Using Capture One and Photoshop

How I Create Warm Skin Tones in Glamour Photos Using Capture One and Photoshop

Another question I get asked quite a lot, and I am only happy to answer on my channel. Achieving glamour skin tones starts on set, of course, with your subject, and how you go about shooting your image, but post work to enhance it is a must as well. I created a 20 min video reviewing exactly what it is I often do, using Capture One for RAW processing and Photoshop CC14 for further color work in regards to skin tones.

A Creative Collaboration Between Photographer and Painter [NSFW]

A Creative Collaboration Between Photographer and Painter [NSFW]

A lot of us became photographers not so much for the pay check but because we were passionate about photography. Still we all have to pay the bill and please our clients which means a lot of the time we have to shoot whatever comes our way. But every once and awhile we get the opportunity to do something fun and inspired like this creative collaboration by photographer Steve Shaw and painter Gregory Siff for Treats! Magazine. I know not everyone will get what these artist have to say and there will be plenty of trolling but when peers come together to create, how can we not want to celebrate the process?

Glamour Video Is A Thing or Why I Am Returning To Video After More Than A Decade

 Glamour Video Is A Thing or Why I Am Returning To Video After More Than A Decade

I have spent the last 6 years cultivating a photography service brand and working to hone my image making skills on a daily basis, but the fact remains that photography is a relatively new endeavor for me. I was a graphics designer from 1990 or so until arguably 2012 (or today), with the occasional design job popping up that I cannot say no to. However, there was also this era in the 1990's where I was a videographer and video editor, shooting everything from local TV spots to interactive media clips to weddings. The embryonic days of digital video are mercifully long gone, but what happens when an old dog jumps into the modern world of video? I aimed to find out.
