Spirituality Through The Lens

As technology increases in our lives and more of our days are spent in the digital realm, we’re feeling increasingly distant from the physical world. This steady shift is leading more people to consciously (or subconsciously) seek balance through nature.

Top Down

Photographer Petra Leary has captured international attention with her bold aerial imagery. She talks us through taking awesome photos with your drone while staying out of trouble.

Aerial photography has been around for almost as long as photography itself, but, in recent years, new life has been injected into the genre thanks to the widespread availability of drones. But drones’ ability to capture awe-inspiring aerial images is accompanied by their ability to make a nuisance of themselves.

Petra Leary has forged her way in the genre over the past three years. She has watched her Instagram posts go viral, featured in Metro and The Guardian, and has recently held her second solo exhibition, Zero Gravity, which gives a top-down perspective of basketball courts across the country. Focusing on urban scenes for the most part, Petra’s photography is unavoidably public, so she sits in the perfect position to answer the question of how to take those superhuman shots without causing trouble.

Eye Contact

A person’s eyes will often reveal their hidden thoughts and feelings. This is why it can be difficult for a photographer to capture the true essence of a subject’s eyes. We are all prone to wearing a mask, so that we don’t reveal our inner energy. These photographs have tapped into that “special something” that is occasionally revealed with the eyes.

Girls and Their Cats

For New York City fashion and beauty photographer BriAnne Wills, the “crazy cat lady” is a myth. Co-written with Elyse Moody, senior editor at Martha Stewart Living, this book redefines the stereotype by showcasing 50 strong, independent, and artistic women who take the world in stride, flanked by their beloved felines. With its vibrant cover and gorgeous faux-suede spine, Girls and Their Cats features striking portraits and engaging profiles of each woman and her cat—or cats—including fun facts unique to each furry friend.

Girls include:
• Hannah Shaw, humane educator, animal advocate, and founder of the neonatal kitten rescue project Kitten Lady
• Christene Barberich, cofounder of Refinery29
• Alyssa Mastromonaco, author, Crooked Media podcast host, and reproductive rights activist
• Maria Hinojosa, anchor and executive producer of NPR’s Latino USA
• Nikki Garcia, owner and designer of the clothing line First Rite
• Erica Chidi Cohen, doula, author, and cofounder of the reproductive health education company Loom
• Anka Lavriv, tattoo artist and co-owner of Black Iris Tattoo

Interspersed throughout are amusing lists any cat lady will find relatable, from “How to Catproof Your Home” to “The Chorus of Cat Sounds,” as well as an adoption resource guide and a list of rescue organizations in the United States and Canada.

Girls and Their Cats
This irresistible book celebrates the powerful bond between a girl and her cat, proving that we need them just as much as they need us.

Puppy Love

One Photographer’s Quest to Capture the Perfect Pairing of Cameras & Canines
Featuring Nikon Ambassador Tamara Lackey

They say never work with children or pets. But Tamara Lackey, a professional photographer and Nikon Ambassador, used to photographing both kids and pets didn’t take that advice when she was called by Nikon for a project that included photographing puppies. Puppies—not trained dogs that are used to being a part of photo shoots, but puppies—40 of them to be exact.

Tamara says it was a dream project. When you’re an animal lover, nothing’s better than being surrounded by all those cute little doggies for two days.
