  • Special Needs

    by Ellenboughn | 27th of November, 2007

    The idea that we need to focus our lenses on people with disabilities and special needs came to me while reading Daryl’s Lang’s (PDNPulse) post last week. He mentioned a new book by the well-known portrait, celebrity and ad photographer, Richard Corman. Corman has photographed... More

    by Pniesen | 1st of September, 2008

    After spending some time in Beijing and shooting several Olympic events I have to give some praise to China for how well they handled the masses. Specifically freelance photographers with no press credentials were treated quite well. The volunteer staff was very friendly... More
  • Italy at the Olympic Games

    by Valeria73 | 24th of August, 2008

    The Olympic Games are over and the journalists in Italy are starting to say how disappointed we are: at Athens we won 32 medals while this year in Beijing we have won “only” 28 medals... getting the 9th place. I’d like to use this space to say I don’t agree! I... More
  • My contribution to the Beijing Olympics.

  • Ooo-ee gooey cream filling!

    by Dnavarrojr | 6th of August, 2008

    The wife has me on this diet, so I figure to cut calories I'd just dig out the cream filling of all my twinkies and throw away the cake... Maybe it's the end of summer blues, but I haven't felt very inspired the past week or so... Most of my artwork has simply been... More
  • Beijing Olympics testing time for China

    by Litifeta | 3rd of August, 2008

  • Beijing Olympics not for everyone

    by Litifeta | 24th of July, 2008
