Had a piece featured on photoburst today-
I also have some new work on borderhopping.net
Both sites have a lot of great travel photography from different photographers. worth checking out.
Michael Ackerman is one of my favorite photographers of all time. I finally came across a decent online representation of his work via his agency (agencevu). If nothing else click through his series on Poland and Varanasi (end time city)-
Just discovered a great polaroid site-
They sell a lot of older polaroid cameras/films plus they have a limited stock of the new SX-70 film (created to replace the discontinued time-zero film).
The boston globe published an unbelievable series of photos of the Holi festival of colors today. The Holi festival is a Hindu holiday that celebrates the welcoming of spring.

I just recently discovered the website for the Richard Avedon foundation. Richard Avedon died on assignment in 2004. Since then the Richard Avedon foundation has been established. I think their website has a more complete and cohesive collection of his work than anything online when he was alive. Here’s the link-
I’ve been looking at the work of Michael Kenna. I saw a book of his Japanese landscapes years ago and I recently stumbled upon more of his stuff. What’s amazing about his photos have this lonely haunting feel no matter what the subject matter. His photos of New York city are in the same style as his shots of natural landscapes.
His website can be seen here
A more simple/organized page of his work here
I’ve been very into this series that photographer Lane Collins shot recently. She shot a lot of surreal looking photos by the beach using different object/animals etc… The series is conceptually abstract and all the photos have a really nice feel about them-
I’ve had a lot of people e-mailing me the last couple weeks asking about prints. So I finally set up a print store-
Smaller prints are as low as $18 each. I tried to keep the prices as low as possible so they’d be accessible to anyone. The printing is done through a separate company (redbubble). I’ve seen the results and they do a really beautiful job. I only have a small selection up right now but I’ll be adding more soon. And if there’s anything you’d like to see for sale just ask.
There’s a new Japanese camera hitting the market that I’m drooling over. It’s called the blackbird fly-
It’s a plastic twin lens reflex. It shoots square format photos (or standard format depending on which mask you use) and it takes 35mm film. The photos I’ve seen look like something in between a Holga and a Rolliflex. Amazing! It cost about $120, which I think makes it the cheapest twin lens reflex ever as well as the only one that shoots 35mm film. At least I think so. Don’t quote me on that.
I recently discovered a new site for creatives that I love! Behance.net. It’s a really well designed site for people from all creative industries (design, photography, illustration etc….). It has a sort of social/business networking feature which I haven’t really used as much as I probably should. But what I like most about it is that a lot of people post new work every day so it’s a great place to look for ideas/inspiration. Plus if you create an account they’ll give you a handy little badge to link to your (behance) portfolio-
Another great Polaroid site/community-
Polaroid film is slowly going extinct. But the good news is that these people are trying to keep the art form alive-
I like to think of them as the frodo baggins of the instant film industry. Like it probably won’t work but if it does it would be awesome.
I’m being featured on the silver mine this week. A photography blog that features big name photographers, unknown artists and everything in between. Worth Checking out.
My friend zak just made me a livejournal feed for this blog for those of you who use livejournal. Thanks Zak! here’s the feed-
I havn’t been shooting that much so I don’t have much to post. Well I have been shooting but only for jobs that aren’t quite blog worthy. Anyway I just found and purchased this cool tripod bean bag thing from semsons.com
They also had this bottle cap tripod, which I would totally use if I had a really small camera-
I’m going to have a photo published in the next issue of lightleaks magazine-
kate showed me this awesome polaroid website today-
kate designed me a new website! I also got a new domain name and I actually did a lot of the flash stuff…….in between kate working on it and me asking “kate how do you do blah blah blah” anyway here it is-
