Simon Bruty - Athletics

To be counted among the best sports photographers in the world takes more than being in the right place at the right time. Simon Bruty gets images that show the unusual within the usual.

Simon Bruty - Athletics

As a society, we're addicted to sports—the Super Bowl, the World Series, NBA basketball, March Madness—the list goes on and on. These are among the biggest moneymakers in entertainment, and for many people, the only thing more inspiring than seeing the events on television is seeing the decisive moments distilled into single, clarifying still photographs. The pages of Sports Illustrated are filled with the finest images from every imaginable contest, and the staff shooters who are assigned to capture the action are the best of the best in the business.

Caesar Lima - Building The Look

For Caesar Lima, the beginning of the basis for his imagery comes down to a simple mantra: Always be creative

Lima is as comfortable creating crazy, colorful portraits as he is presenting his simple and elegant black-and-white portfolio. He's a tech-head who loves his toys and tools, but he knows it's the idea that really makes a photograph. And while Lima is sure to flex his creative muscles on every job, he always delivers exactly what his clients ask for. Sort of.

Breaking into the next tier of professional fashion photography takes perseverance and a whole lot of testing

Robert Polgar - Simple Elegance

There's an old book about the film business called Breaking Through, Selling Out, Dropping Dead and Other Notes on Filmmaking. In the book, author William Bayer discusses some of the challenges facing people looking to get into the film industry.

At the age of 29, he has already run his own graphic design firm, been an assistant to a producer during the making of The Matrix and, of course, he's a successful photographer.

Dan Couto - Let's Party

This is what happens when you combine an eye for comic-book looks with boundless energy and intensity

Dan Couto - Let's Party

I should have known Dan Couto would be an interesting interview the first time I saw his work. Like great art or rock 'n' roll, something so crazy beautiful couldn't possibly be made by a bore. He refers to his style as “comic-book sexy,” and the name fits the aesthetic as well as the man himself.

Gerd Ludwig - At The Heart Of The Matter

Prominent photo ­­­journalist Gerd Ludwig embarks on a digital journey—and takes us with him

Gerd Ludwig - At The Heart Of The Matter

As I climbed the 64 steep steps to the front door of the large concrete house that looks more like a factory out of a Tim Burton movie, I noticed that nothing much had changed. I stopped for a second, breathing in the thin air, grumbled to myself about the stairs that crept up the side of the Hollywood Hills and kept climbing. Reaching the top, I opened the door, let myself in and took a look around. Same pictures on the wall, same furniture. I walked farther into the house, through the doorway to the studio, and that's when I noticed the difference: there's no film.

David Sacks - Creative Fusion

David Sacks keeps his imagery fresh by seeking a balance between work that pays the bills and work that energizes the soul

David Sacks - Creative Fusion

David Sacks would like to be doing more work for free. “Advertising photography is a great way to make a living given the budgets, but it's not the most meaningful thing you can do with your time,” he charges. “Being able to use my camera to help people—especially for those who can't help themselves—is very fulfilling and worthwhile.” Sacks wishes he could do more of the latter, but finds his workload prohibitively taxing. He strives to strike a balance between personally rewarding photography and commercial work that generates revenue.
