The Craftsmen - Photography

The Craftsmen - Photography

It's been some time since I've posted about photography and stumbling upon Dean Bradshaw's work celebrating craftsmen around Los Angeles was too beautiful not to share. We talk a lot about craftsmanship nowadays and this project illustrates the real craftsman in a brilliant way. The photos have a beautiful mood and tone with a slight reminiscence of some of my favorite movies from the 80s. Without further ado, check them out and you won't regret. I've been photographing craftsmen around Los Angeles as a way to celebrate the hand made process and reconnect with a more authentic, fly-on-the-wall approach to photography. First a metalworker in Venice, then a carpenter and machinist in Downtown LA. For more information check out Dean's portfolio at http://www.deanbradshaw.com/

Chinatown Series by Franck Bohbot

Chinatown Series by Franck Bohbot

Visiting China is on my bucket list and Chinatowns have never failed to fascinate me, no matter what global city. I don't know why, but the colors of the little stores, the signage and the people walking makes it an amazing and inspiring scenery perfect for photography. Franck Bohbot posted an incredible set of photos on his Behance profile showcasing New York City's Chinatown with incredible grace. I have taken my own smattering of pictures of the Chinatown in San Francisco but I have to say that my photos cannot even measure.

The Beauty of the Spring

The Beauty of the Spring

Spring season is here, and as the days get longer the weather gets warmer the nature comes back to life. Today I wanted to selected some beautiful photos that reflect the nature in the Spring. Enjoy! Spring and "springtime" refer to the season, and also to ideas of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection and regrowth. Subtropical and tropical areas have climates better described in terms of other seasons, e.g. dry or wet, monsoonal or cyclonic. Often the cultures have locally defined names for seasons which have little equivalence to the terms originating in Europe.

Photography Inspiration: Fog

Photography Inspiration: Fog

I've always been fascinated by fog, my hometown used to get foggy pretty often, especially in the summer. People always say, low fog means a hot day ahead. The visual effects created by a fog is striking, like suddenly this super low cloud takes over cities. San Francisco is pretty famous by its fog, it even has a name and Twitter account: Karl the fog (https://twitter.com/KarlTheFog). For this post I selected a few inspiring images of cities and other landscapes taken by Karl and his siblings. Fog is a collection of liquid water droplets or ice crystals suspended in the air at or near the Earth's surface. While fog is a type of stratus cloud, the term "fog" is typically distinguished from the more generic term "cloud" in that fog is low-lying, and the moisture in the fog is often generated locally (such as from a nearby body of water, like a lake or the ocean, or from nearby moist ground or marshes). Fog is distinguished from mist only by its density, as expressed in the resulting decrease in visibility: Fog reduces visibility to less than 1 km (5/8 statute mile), whereas mist reduces visibility to no less than 1 km. - Wikipedia Fog at the Golden Gate #1 - San Francisco by Patrick Smith Fog City - San Francisco by David Yu Vertigo Fog Daniel Cheong Morning Fog - Marin Headlands Panorama View by David Yu Fog by KenTakesPictures Patchy Fog by Louis Vest Fog pour by Jesse Varner Fog in Vancouver by Mark Teasdale Fog strem by Pete Tsai Chicago in the Clouds by Pete Tsai Foggy Chicago by Pete Tsai Chicago in the Clouds by Pete Tsai Fog Bank by Charles Lamoureux

Station to Station: Shots from the rails

Station to Station: Shots from the rails

We posted about Station to Station, a public art project made possible by Levi's, a few months back and we're excited to follow up with some amazing imagery from the journey. Over the course of three weeks in September, a train traveled from the Atlantic to Pacific, making nine stops across the country. It was an epic undertaking aimed at connecting leading and upcoming figures from the worlds of art, music, food, literature and film in creative collaboration. Funds raised through ticket sales and donations went on to support non-traditional programming at nine partner museums around the country. This once in a lifetime expedition provided breathtaking photographic moments along some of the countries most famed railways and diverse landscapes. Peek this gallery to catch a glimpse of some of my favorite shots from the train.

Inspiring Photography of Muhammad Ali by Neil Leifer

Inspiring Photography of Muhammad Ali by Neil Leifer

I've been a huge fan of Muhammad Ali for quite a long time, his confidence, talent and hard work made him, in my opinion, the best of all time. I love watching his fights on Youtube and documentaries about him. He is much more than just a fighter, his impact in our history is huge, especially for the values he exemplified outside the ring: religious freedom, racial justice and the triumph of principle over expedience. Now back to boxing, Neil Leifer was I believe the official photographer of Ali's fights and he has an incredible gallery of simply amazing photos from Ali's fights. Many of Neil Leifer’s images are available for sale as limited edition fine art prints. All photographs are produced from the original transparency and/or negative and come with a certificate of authenticity. Limited edition prints are individually numbered and signed by Neil Leifer. All prints are exhibition quality prints on archival paper and most are available in the following sizes: 11″ x 14″, 16″ x 20″ and 20″ x 24″. Some prints may be available as open editions and larger prints may be available for some photos as well. Prices start at $750. For more information visit http://neilleifer.com/gallery/muhammad-ali/ Muhammad Ali (born Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr., January 17, 1942) is an American former professional boxer, generally considered among the greatest heavyweights in the sport's history. A controversial and even polarizing figure during his early career, Ali is today widely regarded not only for the skills he displayed in the ring but for the values he exemplified outside of it: religious freedom, racial justice and the triumph of principle over expedience. He is one of the most recognized sports figures of the past 100 years, crowned "Sportsman of the Century" by Sports Illustrated and "Sports Personality of the Century" by the BBC.

Medieval Castles Photography

Medieval Castles Photography

I'm heading over to Great Britain for the Reasons to Be Creative conference in Brighton this September and am looking to make a trek up to Edinburgh to check out some of the amazing medieval castles in the area. Castles arrived in Scotland with the introduction of feudalism in the twelfth century and there have been well over two thousand castles found in all parts of the country. This upcoming trip and my addiction to Game of Thrones inspired this latest post. We hope you enjoy some of the magnificent photos of castles gathered from Flickr.
