In what has been the feel-good story of the day, Maine photographer Rick Barber was recently featured on his local news for his efforts to photograph and share the sunrise from his home of Ogunquit for the past seven years.
Saudi journalist Enad-al-Otaibi posted on his Twitter a very unique glimpse into how exciting photography can actually be—specifically, it's a video of what happens behind the scenes of a mid-air airplane photoshoot.
Back in January of 2018, Twitter introduced an auto-cropping AI that detects the most interesting part of your image and crops the ‘preview’ photo to match. This works with everything from airplane wings to people, but as one engineer showed this weekend, it may suffer from some inherent bias. Over the weekend, cryptographic engineer Tony […]
When it comes to social media communities for photographers, Instagram is the reigning, undisputed champion today. Prior to Instagram's dominance, the photo-centric social media landscape was a very different place.
Brooklyn Beckham was never going to be the most liked photographer in the industry. As the son of multi-millionaire superstars, he got one of the biggest legs up any photographer has received. For a teenage boy, as he was at the time, his work wasn't the worst we have ever seen, but it certainly didn't warrant a photobook and gig with Burberry! A few years have passed since he burst onto the scene, but even now, people enjoy giving the 21-year-old celebrity photographer some virtual jabs on social media.

Social media has become such an integral part of a photographer's journey. I myself had become so immersed in it that I’d spend a large portion of my day on apps like Instagram and Twitter.

Social media has been making a big impact of today's generation, not only for making personal connections but also for building a professional network. As such, it has been consuming a big chunk of our daily activities and demanding so much of our attention, sometimes for the wrong reasons.
Twitter has just announced that auto-cropping of photos on the social networking service will be producing much better results thanks to a new neural network that has been trained for the task. Twitter has been a platform for photo sharing since 2011, but cropping shared photos into neat previews has been a challenge for developers. […]
Musician Ryan Adams got into another very public scuffle with a photographer this week. Midway through his set at the 2017 Gasparilla Music Festival, Adams, who suffers from Meniere’s disease, called out photographer Joe Sale for using flash photography and potentially putting the musician’s health at risk.

When a filmmaker in North Carolina took his drone out to survey the damage done by Hurricane Matthew, he inadvertently helped rescue a man and his elderly dog who were trapped in a flooded house. You can’t make this stuff up. […]
