Watch this. ‘Nuf said. Hat tip to my buddy Scotty R. for for pointing me to this piece.


UPDATE: Hmmm… The Vimeo version is no longer posted, so you’ll have to use this link to see it at the Arc’teryx website.

I was shown this preview for “All.I.Can.” by my buddy Ian this week and wanted to share it here with you. I’ve seen a lot of ski movies, but this creates a fresh look and feel to the footage using time lapse. Can’t wait to see the whole thing when it is released. For all those mountain goers out there, pray for snow!

Just a little something sweet that caught my eye recently… The Matrix meets surfing. You can read more about the Rip Curl project using 52 Canon DSLRs and behind the scenes info over at PetaPixel. Have a great weekend!

Cameras are everywhere, the most prevalent are in our mobile devices, and the old photography cliche of “being in the right place at the right time” rings true. It has never been easier to take and transmit images from anywhere. I will be the first to admit incessant image taking with my iPhone, such as the rainy commute above. With my roots in photojournalism, this reader-submitted gallery of yesterday’s storm in NYC on the New York Times caught my eye. But with the ease of information transmission and user generated content, so come the pitfalls such as disinformation as TIME was duped by a photo snatched from Twitter showing a tornado near the Statue of Liberty. The surprise to me was that the image was actually real, but had been taken in 1976. It is a good reminder that while photojournalists cannot be everywhere at once on breaking news events, as professionals they can provide true and trusted images.

UPDATE 09.20.10: Not directly a photography related bit, but an interesting timeline about the prematurely reported death of NHL coach Pat Burns.

This has circulated around the web the last couple weeks about a very sharp, pointed approach to a job search, “The Google Job Experiment.” Check out more of Alec Brownstein’s work here…

By far the coolest thing I ran across this week is a piece of videojournalism/art  — FREE FALL: World champion freediver Guillaume Nery’s special dive at Dean’s Blue Hole, the deepest blue hole in the world filmed entirely on breath hold by the French champion Julie Gautier.

It is not all shot during a single breath but over four sessions, but no oxygen tanks were used even by the camera operator, and was filmed entirely by the duo on a Canon 5D Mark II. You can read more at Guillaume’s blog. Enjoy!

Once in a while I’m going to throw together a STUFF post that will be a quick set of links to things that grabbed my interest on the web. This week my attention ranged from fascinating to cool to certifiable photo geek. Check ’em out after the jump and enjoy!
