This Business Owner Experienced the Selfish Side of Photography

Photographers live for scenes and moments, something that can last a lifetime in the form of an image. It’s in our blood — ingrained deep in our mindset, and our philosophy of life. But there are times when our thirst to document impacts others. In a recent post on Reddit, a user complained about how photographers use his business property (without permission) during their portrait shoots. Of course, this is trespassing and against the law. But it also highlights a certain level of arrogance that, unfortunately, exists within our community....

Mark Edward Harris’ Beautiful Orangutan Portraits Highlight Deeper Issues

“The older ones like to have me turn my camera around so they can see themselves on my LCD,” Mark Edward Harris tells us. He adds, ” I know this sounds a bit hard to believe, but it has happened on numerous occasions. Orangutans have self-awareness.” For the last six years, Harris has been working closely with one of the world’s most fascinating animals – the orangutan. But as eye-catching and interesting as this portrait series is, there’s a serious undertone, and it’s one Harris wants to help shed light on....

“Shattered Glass” Highlights the Strength of These Incredible Women

“Every time I photograph one of these women, without fail, I leave with an incredible sense of gratitude, inspiration, and positive energy,” explains Katerina Gregoriou as she speaks about her project, Shattered Glass. She adds, “…documenting women who are making a serious change in the world is truly an honor and a joy in and of itself.” Katerina is no stranger to the adversities that are synonymous with being a female in the workplace – especially those that are dominated by men. Previously working as a mechanical engineer, she became accustomed to comments about her appearance and her ability to belong in such a working environment. But with each comment that came, so did an increase in her determination to prove the world wrong. And then in 2018 “photography found her,” and with that, she now had an outlet to express just how powerful she – and the millions of women like her – can be....

5 Places to Find Inspiration for Street Photography

Street photography can be a lonely game. Much time spent alone roaming the streets, hoping something of interest comes your way. Because of the isolation, and the fact there’s no guarantee of getting a great shot, it’s easy to become deflated. You find yourself in a rut, and your camera starts to collect dust. While there are ways of getting out of a creative rut, sometimes you need a little more. You need to be inspired by those around you. Below are some top sources of inspiration....

You’ve seen them in movies, heard their hit records, and watched their mind-bending entertainment, but have you seen their photographs? Away from the glitz and glamour of the celebrity lifestyle, some famous people enjoy picking up a camera and creating photographs. We’re not talking about Brooklyn Beckham either – you know, the young kid who got a gig with Burberry without hardly getting out of auto?

Is This Photographer Right to Be Ashamed About His Past Work?

In a recent post on Reddit, a photographer shared the story of how he first got involved with professional photography. He produced adult entertainment. Struggling to find a photographer up to the standard he wanted, he took to doing both the production and stills himself. After some time, he left the business and walked away from photography. Years later, he’s now looking to reenter the industry but feels ashamed of his past work. The Reddit poster deleted thousands of images, only keeping what he considered to be artistic. Is he right to be ashamed? More so, was it a good decision to erase years of work?...

Can You Guess Which Smartphone Camera These Photos Were Shot On?

Let’s be honest, smartphone photography started as a bit of gimmick. It was fun to think you could create a photograph with a tiny pocket-sized device. Since then, smartphone photography has become big business, and many photographers are advocates for doing the core of their work on a mobile device. But we don’t want to get too lost in all the seriousness that comes with the creative world. We want to go back to having a little bit of fun, all while checking out some cool photography. So we’re going to play a game. Are you ready?...

Saiful Huq Omi Documents the Crisis Faced by the Rohingyas

“I really do not want to go into details about my own traumatic experiences,” says Saiful Huq Omi. Omi is a photojournalist, who for the past 12 years, has been documenting the oppression and genocide of the Rohingyas. The Rohingyas are Muslim people based in Rakhine State, Myanmar. After the Burmese government revoked their citizenship, the community has been left stateless, now living a life of pain and suffering. After his first visit to the community, Omi became deeply connected to their struggle. He made it his mission to ensure he got their story told. In 2018, in conjunction with Schilt Publishing, Omi released his work in the form of a photobook. However, that’s not where the story ends, and even today, he is fighting hard to get people to listen....

5 Classy Examples of Black and White Boudoir Photography (NSFW)

When done correctly, boudoir photography is one of the more polished and artistic genres within the field of photography. Shooting the work in black and white adds an extra layer of sophistication to it, making it extra appealing to those that view it. Of course, other components such as strong lighting and an experienced model contribute to giving the imagery and extra edge. But being a master of the black and white look is going to push the photographs a little bit further than the rest. Thankfully there are photographers working today that are incredibly masterful when it comes to black and white boudoir photography. We’re going to take a look at five of the best....

5 Photographers Show the Strength of the iPhone 11 Pro Camera

Remember when we all went crazy over a 2MP camera on a mobile phone? Now we have a smartphone camera that has not one, but three lens options built into it. Apple by no means is the only – or even the first – company to have this feature, but it’s certainly the most popular. In our developing world of tech, are the three lens options just another gimmick to keep us handing over our money? Or will it help improve the quality of work from smartphone shooters? The below photographers answer all those questions, as we take a look at five photographers showing the iPhone 11 pro is one of the best smartphone cameras on the market....

Is This the Most Entitled Photoshoot Request Ever?

In an article published on Slate, a reader asked the websites’ Care and Feeding section a question relating to photography: “I want to celebrate my husband’s vasectomy with a photoshoot. Is that insensitive?” Amongst her question, the reader wrote about the worries she had of offending people who were unable to conceive. But on the flip side, she felt she should be allowed to celebrate her and her husband’s decision not to have a baby by having a “We’re not expecting” photoshoot. The poor soul, lost between a rock and a hard place as she unwraps her first world problems. Let’s help her, shall we?...

7 Perfect Examples of Inspiring Wedding Photography

Weddings are one of the most stressful gigs a photographer can take. High emotions and interfering families make shooting a wedding an interesting day, to say the least.

It can take years to get to a standard where you can charge thousands of dollars for the gig. But rather than focusing on the experienced photographers, we want to show you the freshest of wedding photographers that we’re digging right now....

When it Comes to The Instagram Business Model, We’re The Problem

When Instagram was first released way back in 2010, it generated excitement like no other app had previously done in the photographic community. Before that, Flickr was the go-to platform that had the sole focus of sharing photographic content. But because of the sheer reach and simplicity that Instagram offered, the tide changed, and with it, millions of people fell in love with the photo-sharing app – a love that would eventually turn sour....

Photography Helped Ian MacDonald Overcome the Darkness of PTSD

“By the time I was twenty years into my career, the gaps in my armor started to reveal themselves,” says Ian MacDonald. He continues, “this is when I can recall experiencing the earliest signs of PTSD.” Ian is a multidisciplinary photographer who most aligns with street and travel photography. To say he has been on a journey is an understatement. Once a paramedic, Ian has seen things that many of us hopefully never will. Because of his experience and dedication to helping others, Ian found himself having to deal with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD.) Always a creative, photography would act as a catalyst for healing. It would help him to move out of the darkness and into a much better place in life....

These Photographers Achieve Great Results with the Leica M10

When the Leica M10 was released back in 2017, the Leica community couldn’t wait to get their hands on it. It’s a full-frame system that packs 24MP into its CMOS sensor, and, of course, it’s a Leica so people were always going to drool over it. But boasting you have a Leica M10 is one thing, proving you can use it is another. We know a thing or two about what makes a good photograph. Because of that, we can see past the gear heads and identify who the real photographers are. In a list that packs some of the very best, here are five photographers doing the Leica M10 the justice it deserves....

Instagram Has Made Street Photography Cliche and You’re the Problem

In an article recently published on World Press Photo, writer Colin Pantall asks: Why photograph when every picture has already been made? It’s a great question and one that highlights the impact of both an oversaturated industry and hobby. Because nowadays, everyone is a photographer – especially with the rise of social media and the smartphone camera. In his piece, Pantall focuses on the impact cliché images have had on documentary photography and photojournalism – but I want to take a look at street photography; a genre in which many continue to complain has become stale and tired....

“Fat people wear clothes too, and we deserve to see ourselves represented in campaigns.” Those are the raw, unfiltered words of plus-size model and influencer, Sophie Turner. She’s working in an industry which for far too long, said people like her do not belong. But times changed, and so did attitudes. Because of this, the market has opened, and plus-size models are now part of the conversation. But it’s never easy settling into an environment where people still struggle to accept you. However, Sophie, and the many others like her, remain determined to be seen, accepted, and celebrated.

5 Photographers Prove the Ricoh GR III Has Professional Performance

The Ricoh GR III continues the GR trend of revolutionizing the way people shoot street photography. How can such a small system pack so much power and impeccable image quality?

These Photographers Are Getting the Best Out of the Sony a7R IV

Back when the Sony a7R IV was announced in the summer of 2019, the Sony lovers waited with anticipation to get their hands on the latest flagship model. Packed with a 61MP full-frame sensor, 15 stops of dynamic range, and a ridiculously fast focusing system, the a7R IV certainly holds its place amongst the boys and girls. Eventually released this September (read our review), Sony shooters have only had a couple of months to put the camera through its paces. But even in such a short amount of time, plenty of photographers have created quality images with Sony a7R IV. And because we’re so selfless and loving, instead of keeping all these great photographers to ourselves, we’re going to share the best of them with you....

Arlindo Camacho Talks About His Well Executed Travel Photography

“Japan is about peace and joy,” says Lisbon born travel photographer, Arlindo Camacho. He isn’t wrong either. Which is why Japan continues to be a popular hotspot for photographers far and wide around the world. But not everyone shoots in the style Arlindo does. While most visit Japan in the blossom season, Arlindo wanted to go against the grain. Instead, he focused on creating something different from the status quo. He explains, “I decided to go in the winter to avoid Sakura’s chaos even knowing that I would miss those incredible colors of springtime.” And it’s because of his planning that he came home with a series of images that we – and many others – totally fell in love with....

Nolle Mason’s Series on Illegal Immigration Makes Digital X-Rays Analog

“I am an outsider using photography, a non-native, or immigrant to the medium,” explains Noelle Mason. At her core, Noelle is an artist with political motivations. Yet, through her manipulation of surveillance images, she has been making a statement in the world of photography. People are listening too. Her series X-Ray Vision Vs. Instability won her first place at the Lens Culture Art Awards, giving her wide-spread recognition. In her work, she tackles the tough topic of immigration – humanizing people who tend to be stripped of their humanity. In a somewhat chilling set of manipulated photographs, Noelle opens up our eyes and allows us to look deep inside the truth. She holds a looking glass over a complex issue, delivering the topic to us in a complex way. For that reason alone, we had to speak to her to learn more about her method of working...

5 Photographers Shooting the Streets with Medium Format Cameras

Medium format cameras sure are fun to use. So it’s no surprise photographers are out on the street using them on a daily basis. Most opt for a film camera. Because let’s face it, most people don’t have in the region of $10,000 (and then some) to buy digital. The image quality of medium format cameras is awesome, and the novelty is intriguing. After spending some time enjoying the work of some street photographers who are using medium format, we thought, “let’s write an article about it.” So we did. And here it is. Five photographers using a medium format camera for street photography. Enjoy!...

4 Photographers Helped Rekindle My Love for Street Photography

While in New York, I was able to connect with people who share as much love for street photography as I do. I’m grateful for this because, honestly, I needed to be in an environment that brought positive vibes and zero negativity. The truth is, I’m on the receiving end of a lot of trolling. And although I’ve committed to taking the rough with the smooth, it does sometimes put a downer on how I feel about the craft. So to be out with the likes of Mark Beckenbach, Clay Benskin, Rinzi Ruiz, and Jens Krauer was a much-needed breath of fresh. Here’s why....

Self-Portraits Set This Film Photographer Free From Emotional Abuse

This Photographer Only Had 20 Minutes to Photograph Greta Thunberg

“I saw a wet plate online and something drew me to it,” explains Shane Balkowitsch. He continues, “my first attempt at a wet plate is a photograph of my brother, taken on October 4th, 2012.” Seven years after the fact, Shane has burst into the spotlight with a very special photograph of a hugely influential young woman.

This Tweet Sums Up Everything Wrong with Many Portrait Photographers

A Reddit user recently shared a Tweet that pretty much summed up the dark side of portrait photography. Twitter user, @uhhhhmad wrote, “no dude I think it’s really cool and normal ur “photography” just consists of pictures of hot girls.” In case you missed it, the tweet is certainly meant to be received sarcastically. And while at first, it tickles the funny bone, it serves as a reminder to us all what a sad, dark place this section of our industry can be. Let’s take a look at the real problem, why it exists, and what we can do to move forward....

Street Photography: A Short Guide to the Ethics for New Photographers

Street photography is a polarizing craft. Peaking into the world of others – albeit in a public space – is rejected by many. Street photographers are often mistaken for aggressive, disrespectful, voyeuristic oddballs by those who are unable to accept the practice. But alongside this mentality, are people that don’t bat an eyelid when a photographer is hard at work. They’re intrigued by the process. But love it or hate it, street photography is fair game in most developed countries, and you don’t break laws by practicing it. But even if you’re in line with the legalities, there are ethics that you need to uphold. Not to be safe from the authorities, but for the good and longevity of the genre....

These 8 Photographers Use the Leica M6 to Take Fantastic Photos

Historically, the Leica M6 has been synonymous with style and prestige. But while it certainly delivers on being a quality build, it doesn’t mean it will always take quality photographs – that’s the job of the person using it. First manufactured in 1984, the Leica M6 is still a popular choice amongst photographers. And while many only have the Leica brand to boast about, others have a body of work that equals the quality they hold in their hand. The good news is, we’ve found the very best of them.

Kate Hook Shows Incredible Skill with Double Exposures on Film

Kate Hook is a name you have seen before on The Phoblographer. That’s with good reason. Her film photography is some of the most creative and compelling we’ve had the pleasure of sharing with our readers. A lot has changed in Kate’s life since we last spoke to her back in 2017. But one thing that has remained the same is the quality of her work.

Intrigued by the theme, we dived deep into her creative world and brought her back in to see how life is going in 2019....

Only Idiots Think All Street Photographers Are Inherently Creepy

Last month The Phoblographer broke the news about a UK street photographer being beaten and bloodied while out on the streets of London. The story went viral and was re-posted on many other online platforms. Amongst the thousands of comments, a disgusting trend materialized. People started to suggest the street photographer deserved his beating and street photographers bring it on themselves. “I hope this will dissuade some of the creeps and douchebags from doing street photography,” wrote one user on Reddit. Another wrote, “Street photography is inherently creepy.” They’re wrong. And if you think the same, so are you. Here’s why....

Why Having Too Many Cameras Is a Good Thing

The abundance of cameras closes doors for the few and opens them for the many, especially the poor. “They’re too expensive,” my mom would say when the discussion of getting a camera came up. It wasn’t her fault: she was a single mom with one child and we didn’t have much money. When I was...

Investing in a Cheap Wedding Photographer Is the Worst Idea Ever

As first reported on the Insider, a couple paid $800 to a photographer to capture their big day. Full of hope and promise, Hayley and Nick Kelble were looking forward to seeing the photographic memories of their wedding. However, once they received the final images, they were left disappointed. Dark, grainy, poorly composed wedding photography is what their money got them. And while we would love to sympathize, clearly lousy planning and weak investment got them exactly what they deserved. ...

Is Arousal Okay in Fine Art Nude Photography? (NSFW)

In our sensitive times, I feel like arousal has become somewhat of a misconstrued feeling. It’s understandable as to why. Decades of the objectification and over-sexualization of women has led to a cultural revolution as women – and men – demand a change. And rightly so. But as a consequence of the wrongdoing of men, I feel the honest ones are hesitant to explore and discuss the feeling of arousal. In the most part, this is because they worry people will judge or label them a pervert. Photography is a great playing field to explore this....
