I came across Stephen Shore’s work about two years ago and have grown to appreciate his style more and more as time goes on. In the beginning of his career he photographed Andy Warhol, Edie Sedgwick, and several other Factory attendees. Personally, I am partial to his explorations in color photography that began in the 1970s.
Not sure if you guys have seen these or not but Annie Leibovitz has taken a bunch of Disney princess photos featuring celebrities. These are a few of my favorites but there are a lot more ( including one of David Beckham as Prince Charming!)
I was looking up 4×5 cameras and ended up reading this interesting article that compares a digital camera and a 4×5 camera. Enjoy.
click on the different colored countries, it’s a compilation of buildings from all over the world who have used legos to fill in some small cracks, missing bricks, etc.
I read “In a Tiny Universe, Room to Heal”, in the
spring and it was fascinating. After a tramatic incident Mark
Hogancamp created a world were he felt safe using toy planes, barbies,
and other things he has either found or people have given to him. The
article talks about how he “…captured his stories with thousands of
photographs, shooting on an old Pentax with a broken light meter”. Check it out 🙂\"In a Tiny Universe, Room to Heal\"
Check out this bizarre playground in Sweden.

This is a video of Ansel Adams; the man I base a lot my own work off of and aspire to. More or less the reason I’m aiming to become a National Geographic Photographer, but more or less to show people in my own work why our wilderness and wildlife matters.

A little long, but really interesting stuff.
