Newly Released Webzine WINk

We just got word that WINk mag’s first webzine has launched.  WINk is Hans Neleman’s creation working with editor in chief Charlie Fish.  The mag supports the WIN Initiative to support locally created stock photography form the far reaches of the globe.   You can also check it out on Getty Images WIN launch page.  The initiative is all about getting and promoting images made by the best young photographers from some of the most remote and exotic (as well as closer to home – wherever that might be) locales.

The first issue features the work of Elana Gutmann, Hans Neleman, Nicholas Ong, Pavel Kantarov, Javiera Eyzaguirre, Gabriella Goldman, and Luis Ladrone de Guevara.

We were thrilled to get a special broncolor mention on page 6-7.

I just came across a cool post by Eric Raptosh.  Eric was shooting some boxing in Los Angeles at New Deal Studios using a broncolor Para 330.  The 11ft focusable Para 330 FB provides a huge source of totally controllable light.  Check out Eric’s post here.

Gary Land Productions Opening Party in Boston

After 2 late nights in Seattle and a red eye back to Boston for a day of sales calls with Dave McRitchie I managed to drag my tired self to Gary Land‘s party to celebrate the opening of his new studio in Boston.  Withing an hour of being there I totally forgot my lack of sleep.  Gary’s place was so full of positive energy that you couldn’t help but be carried away by the sheer force of the people present.  Photographers, assistants, digital techs, producers, DP’s, photo reps, and the advertising posse was out in force.  An awesome evening.  Congrats Gary.
