A long time friend and photographer, Gavin Evans, had the good fortune to be commissioned to photograph David Bowie in London back in 1995.

French freelance photographer and graphic designer Sebastien Del Grosso has created a series of beautiful artworks based on the Star Wars universe. It might not look like it, but photography played a big role in the project.

What does it take to cover the Olympic Games as a sports photographer? Here’s a 10-minute video titled “One Shot” that offers a behind-the-scenes look at the Olympics from the photographers’ perspectives.

In 2006, Leah Caldwell was eating at a Chipotle when photographer Steve Adams took her photograph. Despite the fact that he couldn’t get her to sign a release, Adams sold the image to Chipotle anyway, and now the company is being sued for a whopping $2.2 billion by a very angry Caldwell.

So you’ve spent years honing your photography skills, perfecting the art of puppy fashion photography. You’ve set up a website to share your marvelous work with the world, and one day you’re contacted by a corporation who wants to use one of your photos in its ad for doggie perfume.

Last week, 25-year-old Danish automotive photographer Sebastian Pichard grabbed an old photo from his archives, opened up Photoshop CC, hit record, and started editing without any idea what exactly he would end up with.

Dell is on fire today. After revealing a new an 8K display that has many a creative drooling over its resolution and color gamut, they just unveiled the Dell Canvas: a 27-inch touch-sensitive ‘horizontal smart workspace’ (read: monitor) in the spirit of Wacom’s Cintiq 27QHD and Microsoft’s Surface Studio.
