In the vast locomotive works of the London Midland Scottish Railway nearly 2,000 women, drawn from many different peacetime tasks, are helping to build Britain’s wartime locomotives. Most of these highly skilled women have been trained in the company’s own works, and some of them have become so efficient that they have been made forewomen. The women undertake Locomotive fitting and erecting, boiler making, machining, welding, steam and drop-hammer driving and overhead crane driving. Locomotive yards of the L.M.S. railway, Mrs. M. Hamlet, mother of two children, welds together superheater elements for the boiler of a locomotive, somewhere in England, on September 8, 1943. (Photo by AP Photo)

Photographer Thomas Windisch Explores The Abandoned Mental Asylums Across Italy

1


These images of abandoned hospitals across Italy are not for the faint-hearted. Both of the hospitals featured in the photographs are Italian asylums – known as manicomios – that were used as mental hospitals. Shut down by law in 1978, the derelict buildings are visibly overgrown and make for very eerie portraits. Photographer Thomas Windisch, 32, of Graz, Austria, said the asylums, located in top-secret spots, can get very creepy when there aren’t many people there with him. Here: a ray of light beams down on a decaying theatre in an abandoned hospital. (Photo by Thomas Windisch/Caters News)

Architectural Photographer Pavel Bendov

1


Pavel Bendov photographs architecture, interiors and design to stun. Executing each shot with expertise and empathy, he works with passion and steadfast attention to detail.


Originally from Belarus, Pavel refocused his photographic talent upon moving to New York in 2011. The stark contrast of architecture, culture and built environment here was empowering and inspiring. After various apprenticeships and collaborations with some of the industry’s leading photographers, he launched his professional career in architectural photography that same year.


Pavel sees himself as a visual translator, taking the time and care to understand the client’s needs and articulate them through his photographs. His client relationship stands strong throughout the entire process of each project – from location scouting to photographing to post-processing and retouching, all of which is included in his services.


Aside from his commercial architectural photography practice, Pavel devotes his time to his two photo projects: @newyorkexplorer, which showcases the best locations in the city and @archexplorer, which is a collaboration between other architectural photographers with strong and unique visions of the built environment.





Pavel also captures beautiful still-life and landscape photos:

Beautiful Nordic Nature Through The Lens Of Photographer Roger Brendhagen

1


Nature photographer and Nikon Ambassador Roger Brendhagen will show some of his pictures from the Nordic wildness – and talk about techniques he uses – and tell the history behind the pictures.


Imagine having the world as your office. Imagine your models not caring one iota about their appearance. This is the fortunate situation, Roger Brendhagen finds himself in, approximately 300 days of the year. Although born in Oslo in 1968, this Nature Photographer extraordinaire and his family later moved northwards, settling in the beautiful countryside province of Hedemark. The forestry, wildlife, mountains, rivers and valleys of this area certainly played a role in Roger’s choice of photographic themes.


Roger has photographic affiliations with Nikon, Fotovideo and the World Wildlife Federation (WWF). He has extensive experience taking nature photos and submitting articles to both magazines and newspapers, amongst these the Norwegian Vi Menn, A-Magasinet, Aftenposten and Dagbladet as well as many others spread across Europe.


During the rare periods that Roger is not travelling the world, he spends a good deal of time in the Dovrefjell mountain range. These high mountains, which divide southern Norway and the province of Trønderlag, are part of a protected nature reserve, founded in 1974, with breath taking scenery and an unusually rich plant and animal life. Particular to this area is the Muskox. Deriving its name from the strong odour emitted by the males to attract mates, this longhaired rarity is among Roger’s favourite subjects. Calling Dovrefjell his second home, Brendhagen is currently working on a book featuring both this amazing animal as well as the small mountain fox.


Roger takes as much pleasure shooting images of a tiny Bullfinch, high up in the Norwegian mountains, as he does flitting about the Australian outback, capturing images of Emus or Koala Bears with his telephoto lens. Where most people would shy away, Brendhagen prefers to get close up and take macro photography of both venomous and constrictor snakes.


He is head of the Norwegian Nature Photo Centre based in the town of Danebu. He often holds courses and workshops in macro and nature photography, reaching almost 8000 participants in 2013. Recently Roger has had many exhibitions of his photographic work taken from the Antarctic in the south to Svalbard in the north


Brendhagen is a jury member at various photo competitions, often taking part in them. He has won several prizes, including an award during this year’s Nordic Nature Photo Contest.

David Alexander Willis Interviews Caesar Lima

Youngblood Beauty


Commercial portraitist and product photographer Caesar Lima is absolutely fascinated by imaging technologies. His earnest enthusiasm for photography and the business side of the market have helped the trendsetter stay one step ahead of his peers despite a difficult economy.


An admitted tech addict, Lima was quick to adapt to emerging digital trends early on, which helped his studio rise over the last two decades to the forefront of conceptual advertising.


With clients like T-Mobile, Sony Pictures, Pioneer Electronics, Reebok, Walt Disney and many more, he has been named as one of the top product and advertising photographers in the world, and his high gloss commercial and portrait photography has won a number of awards over the years.


Based in Los Angeles, his studio portfolio is fun and unique, and yet obsessively composed; a stylish collection of vibrant color schemes, minimalist graphic design, meticulous lighting and gorgeous women. More recently, however, Lima has continued to push himself outside of his comfort zone by embracing street photography through his year-long Project 365 series of images taken with several new camera systems like the Sony a7 II and the Leica Q.


When he’s not shooting, Lima is a PR machine. He’s active daily on a variety of social media outlets to keep his network of clients and fans updated on his work, and regularly kept a blog long before social media’s prominence.


Despite his successes as a commercial photographer, he also submits his work compulsively to magazines, websites and contests, noting that it’s a goal for him as a photographer to win at least one award for his images each year.

Greetings From Mars

Greetings-From-Mars-by-Julien-Mauve-05-600x400


‘Greetings from Mars’ is a narrative photography series by Paris-based, author-photographer Julien Mauve.


Mauve’s work involves staging conditions that highlight human behaviour.

In this particular series, Mauve orchestrates stereotypical tourist poses that draw attention to how we tend to act in front of a camera or try to insert ourselves into the landscapes we inhabit.
