Offbeat

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.

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.

Seven Questions with Jeremy Cowart

Last year at Photoshop World, I was introduced to Jeremy Cowart’s work by a close friend who considers Cowart a big influence on his own work. I liked what I saw and began following Cowart’s blog. Recently, he was named the Most Socially Influential Photographer on the Internet.
