I have been shooting Advertising Photography for many years now. The thing that sets an Ad Photographer apart form other types of shooters is shooting to a comp. In advertising photography I am often handed a marker drawing and asked to create this drawing as a photograph. The placement of copy and headlines have all been predetermined in the comp and my job is to bring the comp to life. Not all assignments are like this but many are. Many times we have all the elements from backdrops to clothing created so that they will match the comp. Some say its not very creative but I disagree. Its a superb challenge to take a comp and realize the vision of your Art Director. When I combine my style with the Art Directors vision very cool things happen. It sends you down paths that you may have never traveled before. I shot this on the Hasselblad H2 with a P30+ back. For lighting I am using Hensel strobes all the way now. They are small and deliver great power. I never thought I would change but seeing the Hensel Porty packs changed my mind. It was a great shoot.

Men, all old school is here, LL Cool J, Ice T, Mc Hammer, Salt and Pepa.... wow. I grew up listening my hip hop collection of LP and CD´s.
Photographer Jonathan Mannion, a native of Cleveland, OH, began capturing images of up-and-coming urban music superstars after working for a year with world-renowned photographer Richard Avedon. In 1996, Mannion began his professional career by shooting the photographs for the classic hip-hop album "Reasonable Doubt" by Jay-Z. In the years since then, Jonathan's photography has grown alongside the culture he so loves, helping to visually define an era of urban music. As DJ Quik once pointed out to him, the world sees hip-hop through his eyes. Mannion views the opportunity to contribute to the genre as a blessing.
"I'm just a messenger, and I¹ve been given a talent to document an extremely important era of music history. I have a love for hip-hop that goes back to when I was a teenager, and I feel blessed to have had the chance to shoot the artists I've worked with. I've had the opportunity to grow with them and the photos I've shot over the years have become visual bullet points of their creative evolution and mine."
Mannion's images attempt to push the boundaries of his art, by constantly re-examining and redefining the celebrity portrait. The influence of his work extends beyond the world of urban music. The broad range of subjects revealed by his lens include NBA superstars Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade, Shaquille O'Neal, Magic Johnson and 7 time Tour De France winner Lance Armstrong.
"My work is very intimate. I want people to feel like they're being let in to these superstars' lives through my pictures."
Soulful, pensive, often confrontational, and always beautiful, Jonathan's portraits attempt to blend the heroic with the intensely personal. Jonathan Mannion has already made a lasting mark on the collective American psyche, with no sign of slowing down. His celebrity portraits are often the first images that come to mind when thinking of the top talent in the music industry and the stars of the sports world. Jonathan Mannion's vision has indeed become our vision, and his creations have become an essential medium for the message of an entire generation.

Yeah, a great and "funny" video.
There are several lighting positions that photographers have developed over the years. People like George Hurrell, who used tungsten to shoot stars, used these lighting positions. Learn to identify what a butterfly or Rembrandt light is. Knowing these positions, and where the light placed to create them, will help you see how photographers light their images. These are departure points from which you will create your own look and direction. Its hard to depart from someplace you have never been there. This will teach you the basics and give you a good foundation to build on.
This video is not as slick as some of the others we have done but it has great basic instructions on portrait lighting. (Don't miss the ending its the most exciting part!)

She's back! The blonde bombshell returns for a state-of-the-art Maxim cover shoot.
The sexiest sports star in history has strutted her stuff on the courts of Wimbledon and in the pages of our magazine. She's also become the hottest military pinup since Betty Grable was titillating troops during World War II. In our October issue, Anna talks about working with servicemen overseas, her relationship status, and what it's like to finally be an American girl.
"After living in America for most of your life, you finally became a citizen. What took you so long? You know, I've always considered myself half Russian and half American. It never seemed to really matter if I had a passport or not. But when I started working with the USO and the troops overseas, it just seemed the logical next step..."
Check out her entire interview in the October issue of Maxim, which comes with a free pair of 3-D spectacles to enjoy this photo of Anna in all her multi-dimensional glory.

Today we present to Ole Kröger ( Photomonkey) that he surprised us with an amazing video about paintball.
He is our new ISO 1200 Photographer.
Iso 1200: Hi Ole
Ole: Hi Mat
You are an original photographer, How did you began to shoot paintball?
Not too shure knowing what you mean by an “original photographer”, I am telling you the story anyways. :)
I played paintball for a couple of years – not really on a professional level though - and later on finally practised with my home team from Berlin. Not yet being able to play on their level I wanted to be on the field nevertheless. Hence, I went inside the netting with my camera. The story is really as mundane as that. I stopped playing paintball on a tournament level before I even really started, and still increased my time standing on professional paintball fields with the best players in the world.
You have to shoot quickly but you get amazing pictures, What is your secret?
It obviously helps a lot when shooting this fast paced game if you played it before. Only then you know what moves to expect during the next seconds and where the action is going to happen. Knowing what is currently happening on the field also saves you from getting hit excessively, too. Apart from that I can only assume that my "secret" is always trying to get a different angle - be it a physical perspective or an attitude towards what I am pointing my camera at.
Do you use a special equipment to shoot?
My equipment is fairly standard for a sports photographer that close to the action. For example I do not need a 600mm telephoto-lens to get closeups - I can just jog right next to a player of whom I want to collect the light reflecting from his exhausted and strained face. From time to time I use a remote trigger or a monopod as an extension of my arms to put my camera where there is no place or opportunity to lie or kneel in person without hindering the gameplay. A good rain cover is heavily recommended to protect the camera from the paint. My recommendation would be the SS-300 from Aquatech - lightweight, breathable, washable. I do not use a filter in front of the lens for protective reasons though - rather a good insurance before chromatic aberations, reflections and softness.
Did you study photography or are you self taught?
The way I fondle around with my camera and do the post production is entirely homegrown. I went to university to study automotive engineering and that is in fact the field I am working in professionally. In my second life I'd love to take that detour and learn the craft of photography - not because I have the feeling of missing something, but rather to call myself a proper photographer. I still feel too much of a "prosumer" at times. That needs to change.
Your video had a good impact of the Internet, are you happy?
I am totally happy with the impact. With the video itself however, I have mixed feelings, because I know about all the small but dumb mistakes and glitches I am responsible for while editing and filming. One tends to be overly critical with the own project when investing so much time into it - or at least I do.
How do you shoot your images? (speed, aperture, flash, iso)
Uhm, in most cases I look through the viewfinder and press down the shutter button when I like what I see. No, but seriously, depending on how much depth of field I want or need, and how much I want the movements to smear or to freeze, I chose my aperture, shutter and iso. When shooting in indoor arenas the ASA can get as high as the camera allows me to set it - no matter the noise. Using a flash on the field can be difficult as some players tend to be disturbed by that. I always keep a flash on my belt or in the backpack though for when I want that fill light during ingame-pauses or off the field. The wireless tethered flash trigger of the 7D comes in handy for this.
And of course, if you wanna add something you are free. ( if you want I can add some pictures)
Allright then - on this occasion I want to thank every other fellow paintball photographer for keeping that business that fair as it is and for holding the companionship we share as high you do. It is always a pleasure standing on the field next to you guys. I am looking forward to the upcoming season!
And thanks for your link in your facebook.
The pleasure was all mine! Thank you for the possibility to share my work with other communities than paintballers.

Now entering its second season, the internationally acclaimed "Kate Moss for Longchamp" line will be supported by a new advertising campaign that captures the luxe vintage vibe of the Autumn 2010 collection.
The shoot reunited the close-knit team behind the first campaign -- photographer David Sims, Guido and Lisa Butler for hair and makeup and, of course, Kate Moss herself -- but this time in a London studio, where bare wooden floorboards and a worn velvet sofa were used to create a bohemian ambiance.
Shooting in colour, David Sims, a master of indoor photography, produced a series of evocative portraits of Kate Moss. Intimate lighting reveals Kate's intense sensuality and spotlights the sumptuous hues and rich textures of her new collection for Longchamp, notably the Neo-Pure line in ruby or sapphire lambskin and the Neo-Patch travel bag in a multi-coloured patchwork of exotic finishes. The spirit is pure Kate -- timeless glamour with a rock 'n' roll twist.

Joe McNally is back.
Introducing Joe McNally's first-ever instructional DVD, available for pre-order through Adorama. For a limited time, we're also offering a bundled DVD/ticket discount for those of you joining us on The Flash Bus Tour- http://www.theflashbus.com
For the past three decades, photographer Joe McNally has been documenting our times on assignment for publications like LIFE, Time, National Geographic, Sports Illustrated, and many others. Highly regarded as a master of light, both natural and artificial, Joe continues to create stunning imagery all over the world. Much sought after as a photographer, lecturer, and teacher, Joe educates and inspires shooters of all types--pros, hobbyists and beginners--with The Language of Light.
In this DVD set, Joe shares almost 30 years worth of field knowledge, instruction, and philosophy about using light as a powerful tool of visual communication. He fully explores and explains different lighting techniques, and goes well beyond the "how" all the way through the "why," of using light. Small flash, hard light, soft light, light with color, light in the studio, and light on location are all dissected and explained. You see and hear all about the f-stops, shutter speeds, lenses and light shaping tools, and you are taken further into the reasons why a one lighting approach is better than another for certain scenes, faces or groups. All along the way, Joe offers tips, tricks and solutions that can only be gained from 30 years with a camera to your eye. Sit back, relax and enjoy as this legendary shooter takes you on a fast paced, humorous, and always informative journey about how to speak with light.
