Beautiful and inspirational advert from Canon

As is the usual, my posts are very few these days as have been extremely busy with work these past few weeks (to be shared in another post), but I had to update the blog with this inspirational advert from Canon Australia.

Krystle Wright, a Canon master, describes in voiceover her adventurous and oftentimes dangerous lifestyle and the accompanying imagery is truly breathtaking.

Print store now online!

It's my great pleasure to announce that select prints are now available for purchase on the website, thanks to the wonderful systems that the fine people over at Squarespace have integrated. Fine art New York prints are available in high quality canvas, as is perhaps my most well known photo series, 'Animals in B&W'. More images & categories will be added over time.

The Kennel Clubs dog photographer of the year, 2014 edition

The Kennel Club, after great success last year, is once again holding a photography competition. The Kennel Club is the UK's largest organization dedicated to the health and welfare of dogs, and is a great resource for dog owners, offering education, a wealth of experience, and expert advice on puppy buying, health, training and breeding.

Incredible hyperrealistic 3d portraits

I apologize for the lack of updates recently, my schedule has been quite hectic of late and I simply have not had the time to post. That said, this post is a doozy. 

The images here aren't actually photographs but cg renderings. Its truly astonishing how far the technology as come. The use of believable light, texture, emotive eyes, and shallow DOF really makes you look twice to be sure they weren't captured with a camera. The best example in my opinion is "Portrait of a young woman", which you can see below.

Metropolitan Museum of Art makes over 400,000 works available online

Art and photo enthusiasts, this is for you. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, one of the worlds greatest cultural institutions, has made over 400,000 high resolution works from its collection available in the public domain. This includes over 18,000 photographs spanning almost 2 centuries. This is great, as most of the pieces are not on display due to space limitations.

Stunning Bentley short documentary shot entirely with an iPhone

It's often said that its not really about the gear, but rather the skill and creativity behind. 

This video does a great job of proving this point as it was shot entirely on an iPhone 5s and not a high end DSLR or video rig. The video was then edited using an iPad air, which itself is built into the car. In all fairness, once you add up the behind the scenes gadgets and stabilizing rigs the video doesn't really look like it was shot using a phone. 

New York in images, Pt. 1

As I had mentioned in my previous post, I recently spent 10 amazing days in New York, a city which I really have a lot of love for. It truly is a city of endless photographic opportunity, I could spend a lifetime just capturing all it has to offer.

A visit to the MET & Museum of Natural History

I recently got back from a truly awesome 10 days in probably the greatest city in the world, New York. As you can probably imagine, the days were filled with photographing, sightseeing, shopping, eating, and more than anything, walking. 

In those 10 days I also visited the MET and the Museum of Natural History, both amongst the greatest museums in the world. Both different and incredible experiences (giving the edge to the MET though, less children running all over the place) that one can easily lose hours to taking in everything they both have to offer. 

Geneva Motor Show 2014

I had the great pleasure of visiting the famous Geneva motor show again this year during the press days. 

First held in 1905, the motor show has hosted almost all major models in the history of automobiles, even benzene- and steam-powered cars from the beginning of the century. Exotic super cars are often the center of attention during the show. Prototypes, new equipment, technical breakthroughs, international partnerships, and more have been announced at the exhibition in the past. 

This years show had some awesome cars, visit the gallery after the jump to see a selection of images from the show.

7 Basic tips for getting great Motor show photos

With the Geneva motor show fast approaching (a little over a week from now), I thought it would be a good time to share a few tips on how to get the most out of your shots at the show. 

Motor shows are a fantastic opportunity to get some beautiful cars in front of your camera. Needless to say however, these events attract an enormous amount of people so getting great photos isn't always so easy. Hopefully these few basic tips will help!

Strength & Honor

Last night was the Strength & Honor Championship, an annual mixed martial arts championship, this year held at the Theatre du Leman in the Kempinski Hotel. It was my first time seeing a mixed martial art championship live and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The fighters are great athletes and showed some incredible sportsmanship towards their opponents. I brought my camera along to captures some moments from the night, which you can browse through in the gallery below.
