    Photographer News
    No one wants to admit it, but taking headshots for your company's website can be a drag. That's why GumCo, a branding agency based in Utah, recently commissioned Salt Lake City photographer Brandon Flint to help them "spice up" their employee portraits. The end result? A hilarious and well-executed series of portraits with tons of personality.
  • Lou Bopp: Safety Videos for Brandywine Realty Trust

    Photographer News
    Would you know what to do if there was a fire at the building you work in? What about in the event of a tornado, earthquake or even an active shooter? Unfortunately, many people in the workplace are uninformed about how to handle emergencies, and until the situation arises, the topic is often ignored. That's why Lou Bopp, a St. Louis and NYC-based photographer and director, was recently commissioned by Brandywine Realty Trust to direct a series of at least four educational safety videos.

    For the last few years, UK-based photographer Stuart Freedman has been photographing and writing about Indian Coffee Houses, which, as he puts it, are a network of simple—and sometimes run-down—cafes that foster much of the intellectual and cultural history of india since independence.
  • John Fulton: Clydesdale Randy

    Photographer News
    When John Fulton sent me his most recent personal project, I couldn't help but laugh out loud in the office. "Clydesdale Randy" is a concept image featuring a horse wearing furry boots (is that what we look like when we wear UGGs?) that John created using outtakes from a recent editorial shoot. What makes this shot even more interesting? After coming up with the concept, John was unable to source real furry boots to shoot in studio, so he decided to combine his good sense of humor with his learned CGI skills and model the boots in 3D from scratch.
  • Raymond Patrick: Winter in Japan

    Photographer News
    Many of the travel stories that come out of Japan highlight the country's spring and summer months. Images of Japan during its warm seasons depict cherry blossoms, green fields, blooming flowers and blue water, but winter tourism in the Land of the Rising Sun is just as beautiful. Raymond Patrick, who is based in New York but travels frequently, recently completed an assignment for Aston Martin Magazine shooting in three different locations in Japan during its winter season.

  • Matt & Agnes Hage: Hunting for a Hut in New Zealand

    Photographer News
    It's pretty tough to keep up with Matt and Agnes Hage, also known as HagePhoto. While they call Anchorage, Alaska their home, you can usually find them wandering the globe, looking for their next adventure—camera gear in hand. A recent assignment that appeared in the January 2015 issue of Backpacker Magazine drew the dynamic duo to New Zealand's Southern Alps with editor Rachel Zurer, on a quest to photograph the Ivory Lake Hut, which Matt and Agnes say is the country's most spectacular hut...

    Recently, Bogotá, Colombia-based photographer Jorge Oviedo was commissioned by Ogilvy & Mather Colombia to photograph a campaign for the Coca-Cola Company that's a real tearjerker, to say the least (happy tears though, don't worry.)

    We've all heard about the auto industry's shift towards electric power, but having an electric car these days doesn't necessarily mean that you're puttering around a tiny, two-seat microcar. Austin, TX photographer Marc Morrison saw first-hand how far electric cars have come during a recent shoot for The Verge's new auto section...
