Smugmug’s Story of Photographers

February 5, 2014 Leave a comment
Smugmug has started a video series where they are covering some of the world’s most exciting photographers. These photographers get very candid in these videos. Listening to them gives me goose-bumps. I would say, it’s worth subscribing to this youtube channel – http://www.youtube.com/user/SmugMugFilms
Photography is our business, but it is no secret that it is our passion as well…
It’s not a “how to” or a “what’s in their bag,” rather, a small glimpse, an insight
into who they are, what they do, and what drives them ultimately.
We’re creating this series simply to inspire, celebrate, and share our love for the art of photography.
I’m the kid that always looked overhead when a plane passed by. Something about aviation drew me in. I love flying. I love photographing flying.
I’m a pilot, and I’m a photographer, and being able to combine the two with what I do is just amazing.
What makes air-to-air photography different is that you are up there with this flying machine in its element, watching an awesome pilot as your wingman.
I’ve got the best seat at my own personal air show.
I’ve found what I love to do, and I see myself doing this forever.
I’m Jessica Ambats, and I’m an aviation photographer.

Being creative has just become a way of life. I don’t think it begins with a desire to wake up in the morning and say, ‘Today, I’m creative.’ It just comes down to, ‘Today, I want to live, I want to do what I love, I’m going to go out and I’m going to do that.’

My name is Benjamin Von Wong, and I’m an artist.

I like to think of my photography as something epic, something larger than life. It takes a vision, and it exaggerates it so that you can’t tell the difference between what’s real and what’s fake.

Kite Aerial Photography

July 4, 2011 Leave a comment

I had come across the aerial photography of much acclaimed photographer, Yann Arthus Bertrand, whose aerial shots are splendid. I was simply amazed at seeing pictures from the aerial perspective – pictures which had aesthetic and creative sense. However, in this video it is interesting to see a new dimension to aerial photography using kites. Prof. Charles C. Benton, a professor of architecture at UC Berkeley says that aerial photography using kites give a very unique perspective from about 100 to 200 ft which is difficult to achieve using choppers or planes. Check out this video to get a peek on his interesting pictures and a feel of his passion.
