A couple weeks back, we were put through a challenge for our advanced portraiture class. We were gathered together to pick names out of a hat. Once we drew a name, we had come up with an idea and quickly create our set up for our subject. Once the set was created, we had fifteen minutes to make a great executive portrait. Talk about completely nerve wrecking. However, I lucked out. I drew the chief of campus police, Chief Joe Markham. He was a great subject and very patient. Here is the image that was pick and printed for our project. I do hope he likes it.

I have come to a conclusion that I really enjoy looking through the Magnum photographer pages. Some seem somewhat interesting, while others are major eye catchers. For example, Dennis Stock’s Audrey Hepburn image caught my eye instantly. I enjoy Dennis Stock simplistic and straight photography style. He also photographed an era that I wish I was alive to see in person (the sixties). Not only that, he photographed James Dean and Marilyn Monroe, which gives him bonus points.Dennis Stock is awesome.
According to PDN, Associated Press has been terminating positions in order to cut its payroll costs. Over 50 people were laid off on Tuesday. Of those 50, 5 photographers, including Linda Poole, and photo editor, Victor Vaughan lost their jobs. It is crazy to see that the world of photography is being greatly affected by the economic problems. The greats who are working for Associated Press are losing their jobs.

So, I was browsing one of the photographers from my earlier posts (Jered Scott) and found this pretty awesome website. The website is In The Now: Weddings and Events. Granted the website is mainly about the weddings and events, I found the photography on there pretty cool. It’s no Denis Reggie, but it is pretty darn creative.The photographs on the site are by many different photographers. I found the photography by Jonilyn Photography pretty nifty. So check out In The Now: Weddings and Events and their photographers.
