With a well thought out idea and fantastic execution, Max Riche managed to win several awards with this photo series.

Animal Masquerade for Weddings and Engagements

Even though I'm a wedding photographer, I've never pretended to understand some of the trends that brides embrace to make their wedding or engagement pictures unique and creative.

I'm always a fan of watching talented humans. Parkour is one of those activities which I'll never be good at, but am amazed to watch. HeliPOV had the same idea and decided that parkour group 3RUN should be shown off to the rest of us. The HeliPOV team was kind enough to film the groups jumps and dives using their multicopter. Not only does this clip show off some fun acrobatics, but it also gives a sense of what kind of shots a multicopter can pull off.

Manchul Kim Gets up Close and Personal with a Motocross Photo Shoot

There are a few ways to photograph motocross in action, but one of the best is to use a high powered strobe. For his latest shoot in NamJi, South Korea, Manchul Kim takes a couple of strobes to the track and sees how close he can get to the action. Since motorcycles can be dangerous and all flying by you, it's a good idea to strap on a remote trigger to your camera and step out of the way.
