Owen Perry is a mind-blowing landscape and travel photographer from Whistler, BC who unlike most, wakes up early to get the shots in places you can only dream of.  His images show off our beautiful world from above and below and what’s crazy is he’s only been at this since 2011.

We’re so happy to introduce you Owen’s imagery from Canada, Chile, Europe and beyond, and with a little help from the internet, he may be able to take the interactive web designer off his bio and shoot photography full time … just imagine.

Lauren M. Brown Photography

Lauren M. Brown is a 30-year-old fashion and life-loving photographer from Los Angeles. She’s also the founder of the photo-filled online fashion publication, fashiongrunge.com where she shoots many of the fashion editorials and art directs the videos. She loves music and natural light and isn’t afraid of exploring L.A. to find interesting places to shoot with her friends and models.

Here’s a sampling of some of our favorite images from Lauren’s portfolio and be sure to stay for an interview with Lauren herself.

Our interview with the talented Lauren M. Brown:

Where are you from and when did you start shooting?

Lauren M. Brown: I was born in Washington, DC and at the age of 18 I moved to NYC for school. I took a basic photography class and really enjoyed it. I started to really love people as subjects, thats what I ended up focusing on for most of my first year. I stayed in NYC  for 8 years then moved to LA. I’ve been living in LA for about 4.5 years now.

How does L.A. inspire you?

LMB: One of the many things about Los Angeles that I love is its diversity. Being from the East Coast I’m used to being around several different cultures in one space. I love how the beach and the East Side of LA are almost like different worlds. It’s great for location scouting.

Do you shoot mostly digital or film?

LMB: I shoot a mix of both but until recently I’ve become obsessed with film again. When I went to school digital photography was in its infancy. It’s been such an advantage to have experience with film and the darkroom.

Any favorite shoots?

LMB: Wow. There are really so many that it’s hard to narrow down one. This past summer I was commissioned to shoot a punk band from South Central called reVolt. It was such a great experience hanging out in their practice space, meeting their families and listening to them rehearse. I was almost a part of their world while shooting them.

Any favorite cameras?

AA: I’ll always love my Mamiya RZ67. It’s like my baby. The many vintage Polaroid cameras I have would come close second.

When did you start FashionGrunge and do you find yourself shooting more or managing more?

LMB: I started FashionGrunge about 5 years ago when I lived in NYC. I manage and write still for FG, but now my shooting has picked up again. I go through phases. At this particular time I’m so inspired, so expect more work from me soon!

Anything I should know about you I haven’t asked?

LMB: Hmm…well aside from being obsessed with photography, I also have the same love and passion for music. It’s so much a part of my daily life that it’s silly. I listen to music about 85% of the day.

Distant Shores by Chris Burkard

Distant Shores ($39.95) is the newest coffee table book from award-winning surf and travel photographer Chris Burkard. In the large 180-paged book, Chris shares some of his best surf trips to remote and distant locations around the world.

While the human element is there in nearly all his images, it’s the wild and beautiful nature that really take center stage.  The work is really amazing as evidenced by just a small sampling below:

The Amazing Paper-cut Art
of Zim and Zou

The Amazing Paper-cut Art<br /> of Zim and Zou

We’re always blown away at the care and craft that goes into the French-duo Zim & Zou’s paper-cut artwork and when they make a new camera we always get excited. Their latest paper-cut camera was made for the official poster of the SXSW Film Festival 2014 (Created in collaboration with Gravillis, inc.) In addition to the “film” camera and elements, they created some key Austin symbols like the Paramount Theater, Food Trailer Parks, and the South Congress Bridge bats.

Gravillis said,

“Our goal was to create a poster that did not feel like it could be easily digitally reproduced. Ultimately, we wanted to embrace the ‘do-it-yourself’ ethos that SXSW has shown each year with their creative and imaginative footprint at the festival.”

Here are some details of the camera that show why working with Zim & Zou was a great idea!

Making Digital Photos Analogue in an Instax

Making Digital Photos Analogue in an Instax

New to our wish list is FujiFilm’s Instax Smartphone Printer SP-1 which allows for on the spot of printing right to Instax mini film, wherever you are (no cord required). The SP-1 creates it’s own wi-fi signal which connects to your smart phone using their “INSTAX SHARE” app, which allows you to access your new, old and even social media pictures and add special filters to them on the fly, like black and white, sepia and much more. The photos start printing in just seconds and take around 90 seconds to start developing and a few minutes more to fully develop.

The app also comes with a variety of templates that shows real time stats, Facebook and Instagram templates and more as well as a square template to customize your prints using their multi-colored frames.

The printer comes with your first battery (said to print 100 pics) and a pack of film (10 shots). You can buy your SP-1 today at Adorama , Amazon and more for around $219.
