Street Art Around The World

I try to combine street photography with street art in a complementary way. By adding a human element into the frame you can often enhance the artwork that already exists. Through timing and placement you can end up with an image in which life imitates the art itself.

Landscapes by Jim Harmer

One thing photographers have in common is the desire to progress as artists. For some it might be technical skills, others the creative, more artistic side. And for many of us, it is both sides that we want to grow in. Fortunately some photographers that are further along that pathway are more then happy to share and teach others. Jim Harmer is one of those photographers. He’s got an amazing eye, brilliant technical skills and loves sharing his knowledge. You may have heard of Jim through his online site, Improve Photography or from his podcast or social media.

Reimagining Californian Landscapes Through Infrared

Kate Ballis transforms familiar scenes into Technicolor dreamscapes in her new Infra Realism series
At first glance, Kate Ballis’ candy-coloured landscapes are reminiscent of the hand-tinted photographs that were prevalent in the mid-19th century, but these gorgeous popsicle-palette images were created with the aid of a specially converted infrared camera as opposed to a paintbrush.

A girl in a dress

A girl in a dress is probably one of the most beautiful phenomena in the world. A girl in a dress on the background of an incredible landscape can bring to the ecstasy of people who are sensitive to contemplation.
For me, there is nothing more beautiful than the tangled fabric of the dress from the wind created by the running girl. This is magic. Therefore, in my trips my friends, helpers and I, try to pick up dresses for the landscape, dress up models and create.

The Story Of A Dreamy Young Woman

Once upon a time there was this beautiful blonde young woman who searched for and chased something more meaningful. Was it love? Purpose? Only the young girl knew. The story of the young woman takes place in a romantic era where dream and reality blend together in breathtaking images captured by Follow Me Away.
Follow Me Away (followmeaway) is a project between photographer, Terrance Drysdale, and model, Victoria Yore, who hope that their images cause their viewers to reflect on their own lives and identify what they themselves are searching for or chasing in life.

Big Picture Natural World Photography Competition | 2017 Winners and Finalists Announced
We’re thrilled to share this year’s spectacular winners and finalists, chosen from nearly 6,000 entries.

Grand Prize
Confiscated, Denver, CO
Britta Jaschinski, England, UK

German wildlife photographer Jaschinski has been devoted to documenting the fractured existence of wildlife in captivity for over a decade. Her passion to protect animals, takes her across the globe to reveal otherwise untold stories about animal suffering. Jaschinski has received many international awards and lectures across Europe on photography and animal conservation issues.
These stools are only an example of the many deeply disturbing items that people try to smuggle through borders and airports across the globe. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service stores 1.3 million seized items at a warehouse in Colorado. Trolleys are used to move the confiscated items around the warehouse. I placed the body parts on this backdrop to give some dignity to the objects and pay respect to the animals that loose their lives in the name of status, greed and superstition.
