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.
