Tom Bricker says he's an attorney from Indianapolis, IN. I don't believe that for a second. His photography is way too good! Just take a look at some of these shots. They look like they came from an official Disney photographer. I know if I were this good, I would be. He not only takes great photos, but he also writes descriptions on his thoughts about each shot. You definitely need to check out his Flickr if you want to read up on the photos. He also runs Disney Tourist Blog which gives you great insights into the Disney parks.
If you live anywhere near a city, you'll be lucky to see a single star in the night sky. Luckily for us, there are people like Knate Myers to capture the beauty of the night sky. Knate is a self-taught photographer living in Albuquerque,NM who only recently discovered timelapse and astro photography. It's a good thing he lives in the southwest. It allows him to capture the stars and sky away from the city lights, resulting in some beautiful shots.
If you like his photos, you can buy a calendar of them on Zazzle.
These spectacular shots are from Winter Illuminations, a gorgeous display of lights at the Nabano No Sato botanical garden in Kuwana, Japan. Millions of LED lights spread across the garden grounds creating inspiring scenes such as a sunrise at Mt Fuji, a rainbow across the sky, and the aurora borealis, not to mention the spectacular light tunnels. You can catch this spectacular sight up until March 31, 2013.
Bodyscapes was Jean-Paul Bourdier's first book that "contained vibrant creative artwork with painted bodies moving through some of the most diverse landscapes on earth." All of his photos are staged and shot in analog. The flying bodies, cliff paintings and landscapes are all shot without the use of digital technology.
You can help him fund his second book Leap into the Blue on Kickstarter. It will dive deeper into "our beingness, creating 'fantastic' interventions within the landscape that challenge viewers to question the lines we draw between mind and body; human and nature; figure and landscape; dream and reality." Or you can buy Bodyscapes on Amazon.
