Bold Advertising —The Miraculous Enlightenment of Kenny Riordon

This is an example of bold creative thinking in advertising. I wish more ads were like this. It’s brilliant storytelling and just plain fun to watch.

Shocking Gunfight POV Footage from Afghanistan — “I’m hit, I’m hit.”

The age of context is upon us.

Last week we featured some POV footage of mind-blowing surfing action. It was fun, sporting and intentionally creative.

The clip above is on the the whole other side of the spectrum. It’s real, raw, and unnerving from the middle of an active battlefield. No doubt, it was not created with artistic purpose. …

Using the V-Bag on “Mobius”

Best New Cameras and Photo Gear — 8 Products for the Photographer’s Daydream


PhotoKina, the photography industry’s extravaganza of products and announcements, went down last week. Every two years, the tribes gather in Cologne Germany to showcase the latest and greatest and give us a peak into the future. I did not attend this year.

A little piece of history flies by in slow motion

Given that my office is a mere 4-5 minutes from LAX I couldn’t resist going out to shoot NASA’s Endeavour Shuttle as it landed at Los Angeles Internationals airport today on its final flight atop a 747.

The weekend is here my friends [almost].

I’m resolved to go do something fun. Something creative. Something active. The videos below inspire all three actions.

There has never been a more exciting time in the history to be a photographer. Technology in enabling accessibility (and usability) like never before. Hell, if you can imagine it, you can …
