We are big proponents of exploring your backyard. With a creative eye and taking the perspective of a visitor to your area, you can find great photo opportunities in areas you may have previously overlooked. We talked with Josh Segovia about his backyard, what he shoots and how he stays motivated to go and shoot from his doorstep.
Whilst adrenaline junkies flooded into town by the van loads, we got the camera gear ready for some good old-fashioned extreme sports photography. We joined the excitement, we shot, we competed, we partied and now we want to share the value we found in such an event.
This Winter, Simon and two other friends took a road trip around Norway indulging in the amazing scenery, bags fully packed with camera gear and the chat set on “Shutter speed” and “ISO”. Check out the nectar video by Simon’s fellow photog friend and travel buddy Christian Simmerl, which captures perfectly what a photo adventure is all about.
Iceland has quickly become one of the hottest places for cold weather and landscape photography, and with eye-poppingimages being spread around on all channels, it is easy to see why everyone wants to go there.
With our travel bug and Iceland on the radar, I got in touch with Blake Parker, an Australian born photographer now living in London who made a trip to Iceland this march.
The shutter showdown is a concept, not entirely our own making, but we put our own spin on the photography challenge idea. We opened the doors to any photographer wanting to team up with a skier or snowboarder for 3 hours in a specially built park, followed by 90 minutes to edit and submit photos in order to battle off in 4 photography categories. The whole purpose was to bring together photographers from all over and of all levels for a killer time, network, learn, shoot and generally have a weekend getting kicks out of doing what they love.
Charlotte Workman is a ski resort photographer in Andorra and she shares with us insights on what it takes to be a ski photographer. “Sliding around a mountain taking photos all day is a pretty sweet gig. Every day I’m grateful for what I do. However as a photographer for Grandvalira ski resort, it does mean a lot of time making beginners look good doing snow plow."
