Three Ways to Get Inspired

It’s been a looong time since I’ve posted one of these.  The main reason is that I now have a fan page on facebook, and I’ll often share stuff like this over there.

But recently, I’ve come across sooo many inspiring websites, videos and blogs that I thought I’d share a few.

The first is a nearly hour long interview with Tim Mantoani for Photoshelter.  A bit long for the casual viewer, but one of the best interviews with anyone, on any subject that I’ve ever seen.  His passion for photography will definitely rub off on you.  Definitely a must see for anyone working in a creative field.

Please continue reading for more inspiration.

Inspirational Photography Links #2

I hope everyone is having a nice holiday season! I hope you have a great new year!!!

The first link is a hard hitting one. Media Storm is a website dedicated to multimedia projects.  It has short presentations with photography, video and audio.

Flak Photo is a blogzine that takes submissions of “distinctive work”.  They seem to like a contemporary style, and have some inspiring stuff.

Another online magazine is Burn. It’s brand new and only has a post or two, but promises to inspire.  It’s curated by
Magnum photographer David Alan Harvey.

Last weekend, we had a meet up of the Flickr “Taiwan Photo Club“.  About 30 people showed up in a great space provided to us by Yuma Grill in Taipei.  We ate some good food, looked at a lot of good pictures and had some fun.  Darren Melrose led the discussion and organized everything.  I met a lot of great photographers that live in Taiwan and I’m going to try to post all their links (If I miss you or give the wrong link, Email me and I’ll fix it!):

Craig Ferguson is a great photographer with a website and an active blog.

Michael Geier has a website called “Discover Formosa” and a blog with some fantastic photography.

David Reid is a blogger with some great information and in-site to Taiwan.  One of his websites is called David on Formosa.

Ashish Ashlin has a blog called “Tumbling in Taiwan” (love the name) with information and photography from Taiwan.  I haven’t had a lot of time to look around it yet, but it looks good!

I’ve added all of the above Taiwan-type links to my side bar… Nice to meet you all!

The club is currently running a scavenger hunt with 26 (!!!) things to find.  You need to shoot a photo for each letter of the alphabet.  All the information can be found here.  I don’t know if I’ll be getting anywhere near 26, but I’ll give it a shot.  We’re meeting again after Chinese New Year (Early February) *correction- the new meeting will be 11 January at Yuma Grill again* so if you’re interested, join!

Inspirational Photography Links #1

Being sick today has led me to lots of internet surfing.  I almost wrote a rant about how you should all be putting titles, captions, and keywords on all your pictures over at Flickr, but that might be the virus talking (but just in case I get angry about it again, I saved the draft).  So I cooled off and started to look around at properly captioned photographs on other sites.

I’m starting to get more and more amazed with this so-called “internet” thing and have found myself using it more and more.  It can be quite inspiring, can’t it?

Here are my inspiring photogrpahy links for the day:

From Magnum, a whole bunch of amazing multimedia essays…  Not to be missed.

A new blog on my blog rounds called APhotoEditor that’s not necessarily inspiring, but damn informative.

An interview with Trevor Graves on Too Much Chocolate, a new website that “specifically aims to serve and connect young emerging editorial/fine art based photographers all over the internet.”  Trevor has been an inspiration to me since way back in my skateboarding/snowboarding photography days.  He runs a studio called Nemo in Portland Oregon.  Nemo Photogrpahy’s blog and website.

And one more:

Hitler rants on the new Nikon D3x.

Cheers, don’t forget to drink some orange juice.
