Chris Burkard on the Joy of Photographing Surfers in Freezing Waters

Chris Burkard on the Joy of Photographing Surfers in Freezing Waters Chris Burkard is a California-based surf photographer who has shot for some of the biggest companies and publications in the world. After years of shooting on popular, sun-soaked beaches and making a living through his “dream job,” Burkard began to yearn for beaches that weren’t dominated by tourists and the comforts of civilization. So, he began traveling to remote — and often frigid — shores around the world for surf photos that are off the beaten path. Burkard recently gave a great 10-minute TED talk to share about his journey: Burkard says he found what he...

Photographer Suing Pinterest in Federal Court Over Repeated Copyright Infringement A Massachusetts-based fine art photographer is suing Pinterest for infringing upon his copyrights and other intellectual property rights.

Boffoli tells PetaPixel that he has submitted multiple DMCA takedown requests over the years in an attempt to take down his photographs...

We caught up with Ellis to find out the secrets behind his viral pictures. Ellis says that his squirrel subjects live in the big trees found behind his garden. He’s made a habit of creating sets for the squirrels, so they regularly come around to investigate and see what’s new. “Obviously its elaborately staged,” Ellis says, when we asked him about the props....

Electrophotography: Creating Photos with the Xerox Photocopying Process Most photocopiers (AKA Xerox machines) these days use a technology called xerography, which is also known as electrophotography.

Here’s a short two-minute-long documentary show how Carpenter creates an electrophotograph using Xerox’s oldest commercial copier: Electrophotography has some interesting attributes. A...

A Look at Benrido, One of the Last Collotype Printers in the World

A Look at Benrido, One of the Last Collotype Printers in the World Collotype is a photo printing process that was invented by French photographer Alphonse Louis Poitevin back in 1856. Due to its ability to preserve fine detail in prints, the process was used to create fine art photo prints for many years before other processes arrived on the scene. Photographer Fritz Schumann writes that the collotype printing industry has collapsed in recent years, and that there are now only two commercial collotype printing companies remaining in the world. Both of them are found in Kyoto, Japan. The larger of the two, and the only one that can print in color, is a...

Richard Prince is a Jerk

Richard Prince is a Jerk There are many people who have studied and understand the art world better than me. But there is one thing that I’m sure of: Richard Prince is a jerk. I say this for two reasons. First, I haven’t read anything that suggests he has the self-awareness and intellectual rigor that is bestowed upon him by fawning critics. The pro-Prince camp suggests that he is purposely stretching the concepts of intellectual property ownership, but I counter that he is intellectually lazy. (And even if he had the mental prowess of Socrates, it would make his “art” all the more inexcusable.) Second, he...
