Just watched a documentary about W. Eugene Smith, an American photojournalist who took many powerful B&W photos during WWII. Afterwards i was inspired to change some of my favourite Uganda photos to B&W. Was quite enjoyable. I want to try and take more photos with the intention of converting them to greyscale.
One of my favorite Flickr contacts Alex Stoddard finished his 365 photos in 365 days today. I have been religiously following his daily updates for the past 6 months and have continuously been amazed by his progress, talent and the dedication that he brings to every photo he creates. Please check out his Flickr page http://www.flickr.com/photos/alex-stoddard/
I worked on a shoot today with the brilliant Alexandrena Parker. Alex is a children’s commercial photographer, represented by Treehouse Reps in L.A.
Alex is an extremely talented and passionate photographer. She was born with the lung and digestive disease, Cystic Fibrosis. Whilst Cystic Fibrosis does not define her as a person, it has given her the drive to take risks and be successful in everything she does. In 2011, Alex is aiming to work on a number of commercial and personal projects to help raise money and exposure for the disease.
