Guadalupe Serenity by Mary Hulett

Photographer of the Day: Mary Hulett

Category: Nature Photographer: Mary Hulett Title: Guadalupe Serenity There is much to like about Guadalupe Serenity, starting the use of the water as a leading line, which pulls the viewer through the frame. Next, I love the color palette. In

Offbeat with Joel Robison

It’s not every day that a person’s work transports one to another time or place. Rarer still is the photo that makes one feel like they are peeking in on another, magical world; so it is with the photography of Joel Robison.

Staying Safe Around Wild Horses

Recently, I was reminded that most folks have no idea how to behave around horses. Too often, people assume they are gentle, docile creatures and many are. But, wild or domesticated, horses are half-ton animals who are built to bolt and, if needed, defend themselves with extreme prejudice.

OFFLOAD from Red Giant Software

OFFLOAD = Peace of Mind

Even when power and workspace are readily available, backing up footage can be a real pain. Technically, the process is deceptively simple; just drag and drop your footage from your CF or SD card to your external hard drive. When the first copy is done, repeat the process with the another external drive. Surely, the process is so simple that software could not possibly improve it. Right? Wrong!

Offbeat with Clemens Vanderwerf

It is not often one finds someone willing to traipse around the chilly Alaskan countryside, looking for moose. But, that is precisely what I found when I met Clemens Vanderwerf last spring. At that point, I knew I had met a kindred spirit; someone I wanted to shoot with again and someone I wanted to talk to more about our craft.

Offbeat with Joel Grimes

Joel Grimes’ work is instantly recognizable. From powerful, dynamic posing, to a rich, yet desaturated, HDR look, to masterful compositing which is both surreal and firmly grounded in reality, his photography is iconic. His work has such intensity that, when I met Joel a few years back, expected him to be equally intense and, perhaps, aloof. Instead, Joel is easy-going, approachable and generous with his time and knowledge.

Galactic Warfighters: Much More Than Toys

A little over year ago, I stumbled across an amazing image on Facebook that someone was passing off as a production still from “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”. Knowing how closely J.J. Abrams protects his mystery box, I was dubious and started digging. That search lead me to Matthew Callahan and the toy photography project that would come to be known as Galactic Warfighters.
