I was assigned by Observer to go to Walken’s home in Connecticut and was told that I would get an hour of his time, which blew my mind as I am used to only getting a few minutes with celebrities. We had multiple setups ready to go when Chris (he let me call him Chris) was ready and we started with this seamless background set up. We had a nice conversation while I …

Four of Steve’s pictures were shot with Phase One equipment. Below he shares the stories behind the captures. ‘Dragons Teeth’ (Dunmore Head, Ireland) “Taken at a beautiful spot on the west coast of Ireland looking out towards the Great Blasket Islands. It took me some time to refine the composition to my satisfaction to ensure that there was a clean flow of line and shape from the foreground to the islands in the distance. Having worked hard to successfully resolve the design of the image to my satisfaction it’s a photograph I’m very pleased with.” “Taken with an Alpa TC camera with Schneider 35mm lens, Phase One P20+ Digital Back, Lee Filters, Gitzo tripod, and head.” The Call of the Wild’ (Trotternish Penisula, Isle of Skye) “I was attracted by this remote telephone box for two reasons.

Up Close and Personal with Rick Wenner’s Portrait Photography

He often shoots in black and white, a format which he believes mirrors his preferred minimalist style by focusing on the subject without distraction. About Rick Wenner and his Photography “I am a New York based editorial and advertising portrait photographer. There’s something about capturing moments with the subject in a one-on-one environment. My personal work tends to focus on people that I find inspirational and are doing incredible things in the world. There is a recent portrait that I did with a model named Yves Mathieu who has about 90% (maybe more) of his body tattooed. I never met him before I went to his apartment in Brooklyn. In his Instagram posts Yves will always have positive things to say about humanity, his life experiences, and he’ll even tell stories about people who have taken their own lives due to bullying so to inform and inspire others …

Tommy Reynolds and his team went to Iceland to shoot the beautiful landscape and showed us their trip from start to finish. Capturing Iceland with the XF “My first thought when I took the XF Camera System out of its case was how beautiful the design was and how well-balanced it feels in your hands. I took a test shot and got a little bit too excited at the shutter sound…to that, I can only say, ‘it’s a photographer thing.’ “For shooting landscapes in Iceland, the XF Camera System was easily the best tool for the job. “This was my first experience using the XF Camera System or any digital medium format camera. So it’s no surprise to say that this was a huge jump from my usual camera in terms of detail and, of course, the 15 stops of dynamic range.” “Being able to pull the shadow detail was like working with an HDR composite. It was too easy and a huge advantage. I used the camera’s built-in time-lapse tool to act as an intervalometer …
