Welcome to Photo Finds, a feature where we point you to some of the best photography around the web.

This week’s Photo Finds is a very specific one. We’re not just going to talk about a specific photographer; we’re going to talk about a specific photographer shooting a specific genre.

A lot of you have already heard of photographer and teacher Zack Arias before. We’ve certainly mentioned him on our blog repeatedly, and his lighting workshop on creativeLIVE ranks as one of our top lighting resources to date. He’s also easily one of the most eloquent and honest photographers I know of.

That same honesty and eloquence has, of late, manifested itself in a style of photography that’s pretty different from the portraiture that brought Zack his initial acclaim. Yet, despite its difference, there’s something uniquely Zack about it, and that’s why I’m talking about it today. (more…)

Welcome to Photo Finds, a feature where we point you to some of the best photography around the web.

When I picked wedding and portrait photographer Michael Cali as the person I wanted to talk about in today’s Photo Finds feature, I didn’t remember right away that he and last week’s Photo Finds photographer, Brad Moore, had something pretty significant in common. Both Brad and Michael have served as assistants to one of the most amazing photographers alive today, Joe McNally. Brad is his former assistant (he works for Scott Kelby now) and Mike is Joe’s current assistant. (more…)

I met Brad briefly at the Google+ Conference for Photographers in San Francisco. He was there as part of the organizing staff, as he’s conference organizer Scott Kelby’s assistant. Brad has also appeared on a few shows produced by Kelby Training, such as The Grid and D-Town TV. (more…)

Welcome to Photo Finds, a feature where we point you to some of the best photography around the web.

UK-based photographer Tim Wallace was brought to my attention through Scott Kelby’s awesome KelbyTraining.com. It took little more than a few seconds of browsing Tim’s work to turn me into an instant fan.

I’m not a big car guy. My Saturn is nearly 9 years old, and is rickety to the point where my girlfriend calls it “the Jalopy.” I’ve never been into cars – couldn’t tell you the difference between a carburetor and a cam-shaft. Sure, I admire good-looking cars, but I don’t salivate over them like some folks.

Tim’s photography makes me want to change that.  (more…)

This week, we’re pretty excited to bring you the work of travel, landscape, and humanitarian photographer Colby Brown.

From Australia, to the Himalayas, to Hawaii, New Zealand, and back, Colby has played multiple roles centered around his photography. He has led workshops for National Geographic, worked as a freelance photojournalist, and collaborated with multiple NGOs on humanitarian projects. (more…)

Welcome to Photo Finds, a feature where we point you to some of the best photography around the web.

On this week’s Photo Finds, we take a look at the work of editorial and commercial photographer Steve Simon.

This Montreal-born and New York-based photographer is no stranger to those of you who follow the This Week in Photo podcast. Steve is a regular guest there, in addition to being a prolific writer and instructor. He’s the author of “The Passionate Photographer: Ten Steps Towards Become Great,” a book that has gotten rave reviews and has helped many photographers bridge the gap between the photos that they think they got, and what they actually captured.

Steve’s curriculum vitae makes for some impressive reading. From covering Winter Olympics, to Presidential elections, to shooting at the very edge of the American-Canadian border, Steve Simon’s photography encompasses an impressive and powerful spectrum. It ranges from soaring images taken at the height of political drama, to gritty, even uncomfortable images from the fringes of society. (more…)
