John Paul Caponigro’s elegant, intriguing fine art images result from his control of a complex mix of inspiration, insight, and experience. And one other thing: his enthusiastic embrace of technology in the pursuit and realization of vision.

Street photographer Omar Z Robles has spent the past two years photographing ballet dancers among what he refers to as the urban landscapes of New York.

Drones are becoming increasingly popular among photographers because they enable us to capture images from a perspective not typically possible otherwise. We say “typically” because Polish photographer Kacper Kowalski is what you might call a “human drone” who shoots amazing images while paragliding.

Characters from ancient myths, childhood fairytales and popular fiction have become a major part of our culture. We are all familiar with them and eager for more dramatic tales of romance and adventure. Like many of us, commercial photographer (and California resident) Michelle Monique has always been enchanted with fairytales and fantastical stories. The magic of photography allowed her to transform this passion into a reality and a successful career.

Capturing the fleeting moments of a wave's journey to dissipation, award-winning photographer Ray Collins feels much more at home in saltwater with his camera than on land. Photographing the relationship between water and light is what inspires him.

We recently featured an amazing image of a dancer by photographer Jordan Matter on Shutterbug.com (it first appeared in the April 2015 issue of Shutterbug magazine) and got such a great response to it and the story behind it, we decided to check in with him again on another shot of hiis that's getting lots of buzz.

In a business that thrives on intensely refined specialties, Newport, Rhode Island-based shooter Matthew Cohen has managed to find success in what has to be one of the ultimate photographic niches: nautical adventure photography.

We were going over the photos for this story when photographer Lucas Gilman said something I didn’t entirely agree with. He was talking about making an image in which a bird came into the frame just as a surfer was making his move on a wave. “Cameras are so good now, anybody can take the exact same pictures I can,” he said, “so what I do is look for and take advantage of subtleties that others overlook. That way I separate myself from everyone else who can buy a new camera and make great pictures.”

“A mobile device can display still images and video, and it can broadcast audio,” Sciorio says. “The creation point for all three of those is my camera: it shoots stills, video and records audio. So why was I using only one-third of the tools I had? Why was I trying to sell only one kind of product?”

Award-winning photographer and filmmaker/director Vincent Laforet has observed the world from both sides now: on the ground and in the air. And these days, he much prefers shooting from an elevated perspective that is proving both challenging and exciting, with a hint of danger to spice things up. What is that element of danger? Flying thousands of feet up in an open helicopter—at night, no less. Strap yourselves in for a wild ride…
Who Is Vincent Laforet?

I got the idea for this how-to story from something the Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist David Hume Kennerly said to me: “Believe me, the challenge of photography is not going to France for the first time and photographing the Eiffel Tower. The challenge is really seeing and then photographing the stuff that’s familiar and ordinary, stuff we see all the time but never really observe or give much attention.”

Jimmy Choo is an Internet sensation, a dog with an abundance of personality that we just can't resist. Illustrator and photographer Rafael Mantesso came to fully appreciate Jimmy's charm after his divorce when he found him self alone (and without furniture) in his stark white home. Mantesso rebuilt his life with the help of his dedicated dog pal through his unique works of art, which combine photography, illustration and a lot of whimsy.
