Join Maestro & his friend Jonathan Mannion as they spend an afternoon at Mannion studios digging through past, present & future works of the seasoned photographer including the likes of Jay-Z, Lauryn Hill, Lil Wayne, Kanye West, Usher, Aaliyah and many others. Plus J. Mannion lets Maestro get a spot on the “Wall Of Fame”. I am pretty sure Maestro knows every single person that has some type of importance in the behind the scenes of things. I mean you go through Jonathan’s library of photos and you see some of the most iconic album covers and magazine shoots ever. I can’t even imagine who Maestro is going to be showing next.
Damn I thought I was doing it back in the day, but my handball game was no where even close to these guys from NYC. I had no idea people played handball on the street, as a matter of fact so seriously. This video was shot by 13th Witness, who has done the intro for the past two seasons of Maestro Knows. His work is very pleasing visually and there is something about his lighting that makes the shot seem just right. Going through his Flickr page, every photograph looks perfectly shot. How come I couldn’t get this guy to take my yearbook/senior pictures?
On NikeTalk in the General section we have a pretty expansive photography thread and some of the posters, including me, contributed to a common theme of panoramic photos. The three posted above are just some of the panoramics that I have taken but they are probably the best. The first one is London from the London Eye, the second is Paris from the Arc, and the last one is the Paris sunset from the top of the Eiffel Tower. There are many other photos from other contributors and you need to check them out. My favorites from the rest of the set are the ones from Hong Kong and the San Fran skyline ones. Big ups to FongStarr for putting the collection together on his blog.
His cheerleader analogy is kind of weird, but Terry Richardson is probably bar none one of the best portrait photographers ever. Terry talks about how he connects with his work so that he can create the perfect picture with them.
Get used to this picture. Barack Obama took his official portrait for the White House recently with Pete Souza, the newly announced official White House photographer. Obama’s portrait is the first offical portrait to be taken with a digital camera. See, change is already coming, no more film.
