Fashion, Art & Type Magazine is a new international publication from the peeps who brought you DANSK. Okay, so I must admit, I haven’t heard of either of these. But apparently the magazine is sa-weeet.
What’s with this new frontier of flash blasting? The washed out look seems to be making it’s comeback. It made its start with Terry Richardson and Juergen Teller. But now it seems other photographers are adopting this idea of on-camera flash type party-ography. Is that because film cameras are almost obsolete and now the on-camera flash to film - polaroid-type photos - are harder to...
The F-stop Mag
This is a must for all fashion photographers. The F-stop mag is your one trick pony for lighting your photos. They interview pro photographers and diagram how they lit a certain shot. Extremely interesting and gives you an inside look on the workings of the industry. If only there were more sites like this. Well, if you know any, let me know!
Harper's Bazaar Russia
Now I know why it’s so hard to break into the world of fashion photography. This guy’s stuff is impeccable. But I’ve never even heard of him! However, I dare not give up on my quest to unearth these diamonds in the ruff. If you can help me out, submit a link! David Bicho is hands down another one of these gems. His collection is fantastic, and worthy of recognition. He’s...
Modo Hut - Whatever that means.
Hidden Treasure Alert! Accurately titled Modo Hut, which is Hutu for “awesome fashion blog”, the blog yields gorgeous high resolution fashion photography which is bound to turn your crank. Okay, so maybe I don’t know what Modo hut means but I’m guessing it’s italian for fashion hut. And huts are the perfect getaway. Modo Hut is one of the best ama-tur photoblogs...
L'anatomie de l'élégance
An autopsy of culture and style. With post titles like Babes in the Weeds and The Artful Cobbler, this unknown chick from Chicago has something to say, as well as posting some hot stuff. That’s my kind of blog. The anatomy of elegance blog is everything BUT a dull. The one thing I do not like is a blog full of great pictures by some robot. Who’s posting? I like to know my sandwich and...
Fashion-ation (weekly update)
So, I thought, since most of you don’t hit up the RSS features on your browser and/or don’t want to check a lot of sites and/or my links page is still not up and running which I’m working on (which reminds me if any of you have any css/html knowledge and are willing to help me out, hit up the submit a link button above and drop me a line and your email and maybe we can get...
L'artiste et sa modèle (The Artist and his Model)
The artist and his model. That’s what it’s all about right? Two people, creating a vision, and hopefully ending up with an image that has emotional impact. The artist and his model blog brings you those creative visions and the thing I like about this blog is it doesn’t take a day to load! Dubbed to be a daily collection of arts, design, graphic, fashion, and photography, the...
In a gloomy basement of the Overlook Hotel, the ghostly being that was Miles Aldridge was owning a fashion set. He spun a web of desirable imagery based on colour, composition, and theatrical effects. He continues to this day, to rule the top fashion campaigns and haunts the heavenly body we call earth with his iconic fashion images. CLICK images to see large.
Delicious satisfaction for your fashion photography cravings, foto decadent is a fashion blog that, at first glance kind of looks like a myspace page with the flu, but the content is what counts. Images people! That’s what were looking for. And if you’ve got em, send us a link. We’re all for blatant self promotion.
The Photography Link
Oh man, have I found a gold mine or what?! The Photography Link has been proven as easy to use, and a pleasurable experience. Womb-babies have even rated this site high on their lists based on ease of use. Click the link to see the photos. Finally, I can plop down in my uncomfortable computer chair I bought at IKEA, and marvel at some decent fashion-forward photography. In closing, I’d...
Now here’s the decent work I’ve been searching for. MEL KARCH! What a cool name. You know, you can always tell if their photography is going to be interesting by their name. I mean, Steven Meisel? Sounds like easel, which relates to art. Or Anne Leibovitz, like, her work is full o’ wits. Well, Mel Karch definitely falls into the same category. If you break it down, K-ART-CH, art...
An experience in retinal pleasure. Avant-Garde blog promises amazing posts. So far they’ve kept their word. Tuna Emren, which is probably the most avant-garde name you can have, runs the blog as: •an Art’ificial intellect •an illustrator •a trend inspector •a devotee and electronic music lover •likes to read Tom Robbins, Salman Rushdie, Charles Bukowski, Georges Perec, Ingvar...
Model Couture gets right to the heart of it. No beating around the bush here. You click on picture, picture come up. Wham bam thank-you-ma’am. Hard to mess up with a blog like this.
What people say isn’t going to stop me. I have to do things for myself.– Kate Moss
Finally Kanye released the good version. Love...
“Working with ethereal natural light and casting models with imperfect beauty (including O2W favourites Topaze, Bregje, Sabrina, Nyok, Dioni and Carolien), Jolijn Snijder’s photographs exude sensuality but also have a feeling of risk.” Read the Interview. Jolijn Snijders, mastermind photographer behind ILOVEFAKE magazine, is inspiration. Even her name, which I don’t know where...
The Business of Fashion Scans
Fashion Scanning is risky business. Stealing content from high profile magazines is pretty hefty of a violation. However, the benefits to us randomly surfing the web and chancing upon awesome content we don’t want to pay for really leaves no downside. With that being said, here are some great sites dedicated to fashion scanning: 1 Modeldom is probably my favourite. I’m not sure what...
Can’t help but re-post the amazing fashion pics on the best fashion blog around, fashion-ation. I’m so fashion-ated it’s not even funny. So I thought that now since I’ve gathered a heck of a reading crowd, I would divulge a little about myself. I was born in Canada, have grown up here in Canada in one of the tiniest cities. But seriously, I bet over half of Canada’s...
Fashion Pig brings you everything from fashion shows, photos, blogs, and hype in an easy layout. Check out their blog it’s definitely worth a look!
Mat Gordon, dare I say my favourite model? Currently ranked NUMBER SIX top male model on models.com, and Canadian? Need I say more? But wait: not only is he a successful canadian model, he’s shot with my favourite fashion photographer, Gray Scott!
Steven Meisel and Guy Bourdin’s images play along in a sleek video of their images to tell a story about MYSTERY.
Bruises - Chairlift
It’s hard not to love Andy Julia’s unconventional photography. His site is great. No bothersome flash animation, large pictures you can save, easy to navigate. It’s not the most aesthetically pleasing, but I guess that would make it too good to be true. This photographer has a style that is hard to put a finger on. Ethereal? Maybe. Nostalgic? Could be. Moody? Possible....
From those who brought you thecoolhunter, comes a super fashion-ating blog, so to speak, called fashion-ation. I’m currently obsessed with this website because they’re kind of doing what I’m doing on a larger scale. They post super large photos. They have a good writing team. They have a great lay-out. They show you Hot Editorials from the World’s Best Fashion Magazines all...
Cinematic and breathtaking. I love the use of light in these photos. View his site here.
This chilean photographer has caught the eye of many as a fashion celebrity on flickr. But his work transcends imagination and the impossible becomes the real. In his flickr profile he quips, “I believe in impossible things to happen. That’s who I am… that’s what I do for living: making real the things I dream and see inside my eyes. That’s where my work is born, and...
Sebastien Kim is new age fashion. He doesn’t care what you think of him and that’s what I like about his work. He is doing what he loves because he loves it. By looking at his photos you kind of get an idea of how cool he would be to meet in person. His portfolio has everything, the classic fashion, the 70’s school portraits, the electro-pop lighting and everything in between. A...
Now here’s a name I’ve been seeing quite a bit lately. He’s taking the world by storm with his interesting take on fashion photography and experimental styling. You can check out his interview with Ones2Watch here
Troyt Coburn II
Had to put up some more from Troyt Coburn. His work really sticks in your head. It’s got that “follow-you-around” quality.
Electric Feel - MGMT
Troyt Coburn. Why haven’t I heard his name before? His photography embodies true creativity. His site is a little hard to navigate but the large images makes up for it. The light, the motion, the atmosphere. Troyt’s use of exotic models and interesting props make for beauty at its finest. His photos won’t leave you alone…
The portfolio of Eugenio Recuenco is nothing of the likes you have ever seen. Only a look for yourself can determine if you like this spanish photographer’s quirky style. He’s been described as “a pain in the ass because he gets to do whatever he wants, who works for people who are a pain in the ass because they get to do whatever they want”. Check out his site. ...
If we are all gonna die anyway, shouldn’t we be enjoying ourselves now?– Dazed and Confused
Gray Scott embodies true artistic vision. Starting out as a painter at a young age, his grandmother taught him to see light, and how even the smallest fractions of light brought life to a painting. He evolved from painter to make-up artist, where he worked top campaigns but soon discovered make-up wasn’t his thing. He picked up a camera and called up a model friend, and hasn’t looked...
Tired of the same old fashion photography? Struggling to find a truly inspiring, experimental fashion photographer? Well look no further than Solve Sundsbo, who’s imagery will haunt you out of sheer abnormality. He got a call from Nick Knight while studying fashion in London and ever since he has been creating images completely out of the box. Read more here
Hedi Slimane (pronounced Head-ee) is a big name fashion designer who designs for Dior Homme and apparently, revolutionized the world of men’s fashion. While his fashion diary is mostly about the clothes and styling, it combines amazing fashion photography that is more a “snapshot” into peoples lives than it is posed or thought-up by some creative director. The photos are...
No more wastin’ time, We can’t wait for life… Where’s...– Kanye West - Love Lockdown
Finally! A site dedicated to posting photos a little larger than miniscule from front-running magazines of fashion. A branch site of The Cool Hunter, Fashion-ation brings you street style, high fashion imagery and a free look at what’s hot right now in the fashion world. Still trying to figure out how Fashion-ation gets access to such imagery but I guess the only downfall the site has are...
