Leica is known for their amazing lenses and excellent hand-craftsmanship. This video takes us behind the veil and shows us the making of the limited edition M9-P Hermés Edition camera that celebrates the friendship and collaboration between photographer Jean-Louis Dumas, the former president of Hermès and Leica Camera AG.
About a year-and-a-half ago we featured L.A. photographer Ian Flanigan’s lifestyle photos and a cool stop-motion video of a road trip up the California Coast with his girl. He’s done it again this year, combining over 4,500 photos from a trip to New York to celebrate his Lady’s birthday and Valentine’s day. The video is set to “World News” by Local Natives. Enjoy!

Fashion photographer and filmmaker Jacob Sutton braved three dark nights of -25C temperatures with his Red Epic camera to capture pro snowboarder William Hughes light up the slopes of south eastern France in an L.E.D. suit made by John Spatcher. One of the coolest things about this video is the fact that Hughes is the only light source painting the scene with his weaves and turns… beautiful.
