Sport Photographer Martin Sundberg and the LowePro Photo Sport AW


Photographer Martin Sundberg takes the Photo Sport AW along for an extreme workout in one of his favorite locations.

"I specialize in capturing people passionate about life and what they do - while they are doing it."

An accomplished skier, paddler, and endurance enthusiast, Martin surprises the athletes and models he's assigned to keep up with - even with 35 pounds of camera gear on his back! While his ability to get into challenging landscapes to find unique points of view separates him from the pack, his mastery of light and composition produces images outside the ordinary.

A former biology teacher from  Minnesota, Martin now makes his home in the San Francisco Bay Area.  When not traveling on assignment he enjoys paddling his surf skis on the bay, particularly when the Golden Gate wind tunnel whips the Bay into a froth.

Martin shoots for publications such as  National Geographic Adventure, Men's Journal, Outside and Runner's World, as well as for corporate clients, outdoor catalogs and educational institutions. He keeps his educator's teeth sharp by teaching digital photography workshops from the Bay Area to the Galapagos Islands.( via lowepro)

Kayaking Photography Tips by Jerry Monkman


In this video, New Hampshire based conservation photographer Jerry Monkman explains how to keep your camera gear safe while shooting from a kayak.

EcoPhotography features the distinctive adventure, nature, and travel photography of Jerry and Marcy Monkman. Known for their conservation work in New England's wild places, the Monkmans have spent the last fifteen years artfully documenting the mountains, forests, and coastlines that define the region. In 2002, they were awarded a communications award by the Northern Forest Alliance in recognition of their "vision and excellence in chronicling the story of the Northern Forest through photography." Staying true to their mission of "promoting ecological awareness through creative photography," their images have contributed to raising awareness and funds to protect a diverse collection of wild places, from a small Connecticut trout stream not far from New York City, to New Hampshire's Great Bay, to Maine's Debsconeag Lakes in the Northern Forest.

John Ker Photography - Behind The Scenes commercial for Montrail Footwear


Behind the scenes on my first project combining still photography and video. I decided to shoot a spec commercial for Montrail Footwear, a leader in the trail running shoe industry. Although the subject matter is a departure for my usual stuff, I tried to bring my photographic style to the project, which meant lots of artificial light.

This shoot was done over two days, on location near Hamilton, Ontario. This project was a huge learning experience for me, not to mention a lot of fun. Thanks to my awesome crew Sarah, Mike, Aubree, and Hugh for coming out and helping make it happen.

I've added a new section called "tech talk", at the end of the video, explaining some of the gear I used and other camera nerd information.

The spec commercial will be released sometime in July 2011.

Making the perfect kayak action shot - Red Bull Illume


Kayak photography is nearly as challenging as kayaking itself. Keeping equipment dry but getting into the action is no easy task.

Red Bull Illume followed photographer Vitek Ludvik from the Czech Republic on his shoot with Olympic kayaker Vavra Hradilek to find out how he got a great shot in the rapids - without getting his camera wet.

The brief was to get a close up picture where you can see Vavra's face and kayak in action. Check the video to see how it was done.

Benoit Rousseau: A street photographer in Paris


About Benoit Rousseau:

I discovered photography in 2008 and decided to make it my main leisure. Before that I never pressed the shutter of an SLR...

I was wrong: shooting a good photo is a pleasurable moment. As soon as I have time (rarely between a job board director and a large family), I go hunting moments.

I am equipped with professional equipment: Canon 5D, 24mm f1.4 L, 50mm f1.4, 85mm f1.2 L, 150mm F.2.8, 16-35 mm f2.8 L, 24-70 mm f2.8 L, 28-300 f3.5-5.6 L before and I still dream of a 35mm f1.4 L, 70-200 f2.8 L or a new camera.

If you want to help me develop my art;) any proposal is welcome. I am especially attracted by human subject in urban context, snapshot, report ; those are, for the moment, my main practise ... But sometimes, when I have no choice, I shoot nature. The more I improve my work, the harder it is to produce good pictures ; but as long as we improve, the desire to go on remains.

If some of these pictures inspire you, thank you to let me know via Guestbook

We used products made by Alfonso's Breakaway Glass, I first used this stuff out at Universal Studios back lot when we had a cowboy jump through a window pane. So far its been great stuff and comes molded as bottles, cups and just about anything you could want.

We also just started using some great Kessler equipment to make this video. I have used several sliders and tested countless others but the CineSlider and Shuttle Pod are by far the best. Check out the stills and other info on our Facebook page. Links down below. Enjoy!

The shoot was done with a Phase One 645DF and P40+ back, 75 - 150mm lens, along with a Photoflex TritonFlash kit with small octodome. The video highlights the benefits of using top quality photography gear that is also perfectly adapted to shooting on location in this environment.

[FRAMED] Crew finds Hasselblad


So how do YOU pronounce Hasselblad? Seriously, it doesn't matter. Because the cameras are incredible. Besides, just like Matt (aka McBoom) said, it did take pictures on the moon. But what's even better, is that many of these photographers have been in the business for years and were so excited to have the chance to hold a film or digital Hasselblad in their hands.

The crew was in Salt Lake filming future episodes for Season two and they heard about a secret upscale "invite only" Hasselblad event. And they had to check it out and get our cameras in there to give you a peak as well. They even fed the crew dinner. Special thanks to Hasselblad and Pictureline for allowing us to catch a sneak.

Photoshop 101: Basics of Layers and Masks by Sean Armenta


Ki: Michael Levin


I first came across Brad Kremer’s video work in late 2010 and I was immediately engaged. His video Hayaku is like a poem told through time-lapse photography. I felt moved along by the kinetic energy in the piece and he had me hooked. Since I needed some video footage shot in Japan for a separate project, I contacted Brad with a basic pitch and by the time we met up for sushi and beers about a month later in Fukuoka he had brainstormed a better idea.

Over the years I’ve built up a collection of key images photographed in Japan. I’ve been fortunate to have travelled extensively throughout the country and to have taken in all the incredible places that make it so special. So I wanted to see how Brad might reveal my own personal experience of witnessing Japan, particularly the casual moments that still never seem ordinary to me. I do a lot of waiting and watching and I wasn’t sure how Brad could make those long stretches interesting. But he has a natural instinct for storytelling and was able to spin the various shots of me working in different locations into a seamless story. The video speaks for itself and we had a blast shooting it.

At the start I thought that this would be a one-off project but it turned out to be something bigger. All credit for the concept and beauty of the piece goes to Brad but it’s inspired me to see if there are other ways that we might work together in the future. I believe that creativity can be a shared experience. So I think that this unexpected partnership will result in other projects. Stay tuned.

Picture Perfect: Rob Hornstra


In this episode of Picture Perfect, VBS goes on assignment with Dutch photographer Rob Hornstra to Sochi, Russia as he continues to captures the city as it exists before it is thrust into the international spotlight as host of the 2014 Winter Olympics. This time around, Hornstra is photographing lounge singers in restaurants, cabarets and hotel lobbies.

An advocate for "slow journalism", the Netherlands-based documentary photographer produces work over long periods of time, involving himself in the changes that occur over the breadth of years. His work is characterized by a stylized rawness, with a large dose of intrinsic engagement.

In 2014, the Olympic Games will take place in Sochi, Russia. Never before have the Olympics been held in a region that contrasts more strongly with the glamour of the games. Just 20 kilometers away is the conflict zone Abkhazia. To the east, the Caucasus Mountains stretch into obscure and impoverished breakaway republics such as Cherkessia, North Ossetia and Chechnya. On the coast, old Soviet sanatoriums stand shoulder to shoulder with the most expensive hotels and clubs of the Russian Riviera.

Hornstra and writer/filmmaker Arnold van Bruggen have joined together on The Sochi Project to document the changes in and around Sochi over the course of the next five years. The Sochi Project will be a dynamic mix of documentary photography, film and reportage about a world in flux; a world full of different realities within a small, but extraordinary geographic area.

Behind the Scenes

Final spots

This is a project for The Workplace Safety and Insurance Bureau of Ontario’s 2008 Interactive Awareness Campaign. This was the first time I got to work with DraftFCB and in particular Steve DiLorenzo – the creative director, who I am now proud to call a good friend.

The beauty of this campaign is that it allows the user to immerse themselves in the moment, examine every detail in the split seconds before and after a catastrophic accident. By simply clicking and dragging the frame the user can drive the video content forward or backward as much as they like. They can stop anywhere in the video to examine a particular frame, while remaining immersed in the heart-wrenching story delivered by the victims of the accident.

This series of interactive spots used “The Big Freeze” special effects camera rig to capture the practical effects on the day, then we enhanced the live-action with CG effects – compositing 3D models for some of the debris and weather.

This project won SILVER at The Promax | BDAs – and a few other WEB and Advertising awards...
