It’s that time of the year again, time to welcome the newbies to Nemo. And what better way to say “welcome” than with a spoonful of Viper hot sauce. Of course there were multiple cameras there to document the ritual. Miraculously, everyone survived.
We had an amazing kick-off to Chris Brunkhart’s tour for his new photo book “how many dreams in the dark?” Check out the video!
San Francisco photographer Joey Celis is kind of a genius for designing this Leica M9 iPhone Skin. Sadly, it’s not going to be made for sale- Celis considers it a “one-off”. Definitely makes him cooler than the rest of us iPhone users, though (and way cooler than those Droid users!)
The Red Bull Illume image quest (the world’s premier action and adventure sports photography competition) just went down in Dublin last night. 4,773 photographers from 112 countries, 22,764 submitted photos, all showcasing their love and dedication to action sports. After nearly 6 months of sifting through photos, the 50 finalists were unveiled on August 31 at a spectacular ceremony in Trinity College Dublin, Ireland. And at the end of the night, central California’s surf-photographer-extraordinaire Chris Burkard and his image of Pete Mendia riding refracting waves in Chile walked away with the grand prize: a Leica S2 camera worth €30.000 (roughly $38,000!)
Red Bull will also be releasing the Illume Photobook 2010, a record of their quest. The top 250 images have been published in high-quality hardback and will be available soon for purchase for fans of these stunning, breathtaking images.
