Any real guy with a camera will not pass up the chance to photograph these two subjects, and not necessarily in this order: a beautiful woman or a beautiful sports car. Richard Thompson recently had the chance to photograph the latter. What made his experience particularly special was that he shot not just one car, nor a handful, but several exotic rides. The location for the pictorial was also no less spectacular. Los Angeles-based designer Holger Schubert’s home was the venue for the photo shoot. Holger’s superb Brentwood home, which has received compliments in quite a number of publications as well as on the internet, is seen as “the ultimate garage.”
It is almost improbable that there exists a staggering collection of 3,700 photos of Marilyn Monroe that have not been seen by the general public. These unpublished images of the iconic bombshell will go up for auction in Los Angeles on July 27 in what will likely be an unprecedented public sale of such an amazing treasure trove. Each and every picture comes with full copyrights. This means that the future owners of the images can make and license reproductions all they want.
The photographs were taken by fashion and celebrity photographer Milton H. Greene. Green was active for over four decades behind the camera, and is best known for the pictorials he did with Marilyn Monroe.
Following the theme of Toy Story where toys have a life all their own when they are not being played with, what really does happen to them when they are set aside?

David Doubilet, who has been photographing the world’s oceans for half a century, and he certainly has an immense portfolio of stunning underwater life and activity. In this featured series he introduces us to some rather delightful and colorful creatures. Called a Nudibranch, these are marine ‘sea slugs.’ Diminutive in size, these ‘sea slugs’ come in a wide variety of colors and are quite visually striking to look at as evidenced by Doubilet’s shots.
Things are abuzz again in the grapevine with a new Canon DSLR purportedly in the works. Rumor has it that Canon is currently field testing a camera with robust amounts of megapixels. A generous 75 megapixels to be exact.
Belgium-based photographer Ian Komac displays uncommon skill, talent, and vision in his depiction of dreamlike images. He shoots and creates surreal imagery in dense forest setting, as well as some peculiar indoor photos. While these pictures are able to convey that illusory and bizarre quality that is the trademark of surreal photography, what really comes as surprise is the age of the lens man involved. Komac is merely 17 years old.
